Question Brake pads. Regular vs. Ceramic?

I'm due for new brake pads, just wondering if any body had any experience with those ceramic pads?
In terms of brakeing performance, durability, quietness and especially that nasty black dust from the regular pads, all things considered, which kind/brand of pads you guys recommend? Price is NOT an issue!

Thank you,

Nasty black stuff is a combination of pads but more so the cheap metal used in rotors. I have had both a not noticed a difference in brakeing performance, I put on a really good set of Brembo rotors and the black issue is all but gone (apperantly the metal is very hard) 200% better than the China crap.
