I have Pagid pads front and back now and i have no problem with them and no brake squeal at all.
Brake squeal has less to do with which pads you choose, Instead it is more often than not, that the Copper grease used to lubricate the the sliding action between the disc and pads. intially all will be fine, then after a while the squeal will come back.

The solution is using a High Quality Lithium based grease about 5 a tub.

Also Copper grease makes rubber perish.
