After carefully driving and gently applying breaks for a couple of hundred miles, I can now give a fair assetment of these pads. At first stopping power seemed weak, and there was an audible squeal. Now that they are more "seated", or whatever the appropriate term is, I could'nt be happier. Stops very well with no noise whatsoever. Dust was never a problem anyway and there is'nt any now either. I used new Centric rotors with these pads and that seems to be a good combination. I would recommend these pads to anyone who's shopping for brakes. Great price, good performance, and being ceramic they should provide many miles of dependable service.
