Akebono Euro vs. Centric Posi Quiet Ceramic Brake Pads

Anybody have experience with these two?

My priorities are mainly:

1. Very low dust/non-corrosive dust
2. OEM braking feel/performance

...Ceramic is pretty much low dust and noise, but they will never come close to OEM bite, feel, and performance of the semi metallic pads. I recently bought some Stoptech Streetech Pads and will install them with new Centric High Carbon Rotors in about another week or so. I'll post up the results when I have them. If you're not tracking and do occasional hard driving then you should be fine with Ceramic pads.
