Are Pex shutoff valves ok?

Are Pex shutoff valves ok, or is it best to stay with the copper shutoffs? I'm doing a complete replumb on the water system and have never used the plastic shutoffs. I have good access so I can go either way.

I bought brass ball valves with PEX fittings on them. Home Depot and Menard's both carry them.

I've plumbed a number of house and a couple of Airstreams with Pex, no problems
