Honestly, though, most people recommend replacing the Borg shield as soon as you can get the MACO shield. The best gear you could put together pre-S7 was the Borg deflector/engines/console and the MACO shield, and a lot of people still hold to this even when the Borg set was downsized.
I am sticking with my Omegas though although I do use Maco on Cruisers.

Nothing but Omega on my escorts.
