By pads i pressume you mean V's?
No V-brake is better than a properly functioning Hydraulic disc (exception made for Hayes Sole)
However, you can get Mechanical disc brakes for not much more than V's. That area is a little grey really. Some are better, others are not.
What bike do you have and what riding do you intend on doing?

In the nicest possible way, it is probably not worth spending money on Disc Brakes for your bike.
These will be perfectly fine. ... delID=1237
