I'm very happy with my PFC Z compounds. They dust very little and together with stainless lines and Motul fluid bite very nice. It's been about 2 years or more as well and the pads themselves are in great shape and last time I checked looked to have about 75% life left. Occasionally I get a tiny squeak here and there, but it comes and goes depending on what streaks I hit in the pads and how I drive.
Any ceramic should dust less, look into the Akebono's since they seem to have good reviews and are pretty affordable. It's all up to your preference.
