Default Spark Plugs

I have a 1999 A.C.E 1100 and the owners manual calls for either DPR7EA-9 or X22EPR-U9 and i was wondering what brand of spark plugs do you guys recommend using and are there any brands to stay clear of?

Auto Zone has Champion ones for $1.99. Anyone have anything negative to say about these?

Your bike came w/ NGK's, why not put them back in? .60 cents more.

Yes i do know that. I'm going through the whole bike doing all the maintenance items since I bought the bike used with 30k miles i'm not sure when the last time everything was done. So i'm trying to get it all done as cost effectively as i can. I'm not going to sweat spending a little more for better things but i'm not going to go out and get the most expensive replacement parts and fluids if it's not going to make much difference.
