YPK brake pads? (v-brake)

Has anyone heard of/used YPK brake pads? I saw them at the LBS here, and are more expensive than Shimano replacement pads. The guy said it takes a long, long time for them to wear out. Also, what types/kinds of brake pad material are available?

It helps if you tell us if you're talking about Rim or Disc brakes
