American Century 'One Choice Portfolio?

Does anyone have any comments about Amercian Century Investments. I chose to roll over my IRA into 'One Choice Portfolio very aggressive':

I am still young and will eventually move to a more diversified fund.

The expense ratio is about 500% greater than the comparable Vanguard funds (and probably much greater than the Fidelity equivalent, too). At your age that can be very important in the long run. Just something to keep in mind.

Chase Bank owns a majority interest in American Century. Keep in mind banks generally don't invest in things that DON'T make a ton of money for them..........

Fido has good Spartan funds but the ER on the Freedom funds are a bit high, but it would a good place to start and also T Rowe Price.

Fidelity and T. Rowe Price are often mentioned. TIAA-CREF are good, too, if you have access.
