Agree with you on the Auto Zone pads. But don't get the standard pads, get the "Gold" ones. I believe you will notice brake dust with the standard pads, but the gold lineup of Auto Zone products are better quality "ceramic" I think. I used to put the standard pads on my old Camaro, saw brake dust, but put the Gold on my wife's 02 Mustang and there's little to no brake dust.

Example:

Duralast Gold Cmax / Brake Pads - Front - Notes: Premium ceramic Ultra Quiet - Premium ceramic pad with a patented nitrile rubber shim, includes disc-brake hardware kit
Friction Material Type: Ceramic

BUT it looks like Auto Zone isn't quite up to speed on aftermarket parts like anyone else right now. You can only get Oil Filters and Cabin Filters...
