Hawk HPS Pads vs. Centric Posi Quiet Ceramic Pads

Anyone have input or personal experience here? I do not track or auto-x the car, but I am looking for similar stopping power to OEM. Also low-dust and low-noise.

Thanks....

Cool Carbon performance FTW—better overall stopping power than OE-low noise/Dust-Very Linear and with a friction level that increases with heat-- always our first recommendation and what we run here

I have the Hawks HPS pads. Better than OEM in my opinion on perofrmance/dust fronts. I get little to no dust and have to clean my wheels far less. The stopping power is just as good as OEM and yet they don't seem to get the feeling of fading after driving around the mountain roads here. If I had to have a complaint, I would say they are a bit louder when cold than OEM, but once the car has been driven for a few miles the noise quiets down.
