Local Brake Options

Today, I noticed the first sign of some brake squeal from my pads.
With this in mind, I started looking to see what options are available locally.
Yes, with overnight shipping there is no need to purchase at a local shop, but I prefer to do so especially when a warranty is involved.

With this being said, here are my options
Carquest Wearever Platinum Professional Ceramic $52.99
Carquest Wearever Frontline........................................ $59.99
Wagner Thermoquiet Ceramic.................................... $59.00
Wagner OEX .................................................. ................ $71.99
Akebono Pro-Act Ultra Premium.................................. $86.70
Duralast Max Ceramic........................................... ...... .$48.99
Brakebest Select............................................ ............... $52.99
Napa Brake Pads - Front - Premium - OE Ceramic...... $29.99
Napa Brake Pads - Front - Ultra-Premium - Ceramic - $72.97
Napa Brake Pads - Front - Adaptive One Truck & SUV $81.79
Napa Brake Pads - Front - Ultra-Premium - OE Ceramic $87.10

In years past, I would have purchased the Wagner Thermoquiet pads, but I'm open to learning from your own experiences.

Ok, of these choices, what would you recommend?

Ok, let's limit the choices a bit and see if we can get a discussion on the below pads.

Wagner OEX (ceramic) apx $51 if my local parts store will price match Pepboys.
Raybestos EHT (ceramic/semimetallic hybrid) apx $54 online from Summit Racing .

The OEX is said to be a low dust, long wearing pad which brakes well and wears evenly on the rotor.
The EHT claims to brake very well, but may be more aggressive on the rotor due to its semimettalic components(share your own experiences).

Price is very similar, and I can get free shipping from summitracing.com.

Which would you choose?

Raybestos based on the choices I made after reading this thread.

I've been running Raysbestos SP1094TRH pads for a couple years now and they've been great, tons of stopping power. Downside is they are dusty.

I bought them from Rockauto, I know you prefer local but in my case their warranty program has been really easy to deal with. You just have to go on their site and click through the warranty claim options, order the replacement parts, mail the old ones back with the prepaid label in the same box. Then I file a return shipping with claim with Paypal (you have to pay with them) and in a few days they credit me the money for the shipping label and RA credits me the replacement part cost. And they don't really care what condition the parts show up in I've sent back everything covered in grease and broken in pieces before with no problem.

We're the Raybestos pads any more dusty than what came on the Xterra from the factory?
