OP you would probably be better off asking in /r/MMA or /r/boxing for some better answers.

It sounds like you will be fine with a regular free-standing punching bag like this. Your downstairs neighbors won't be too crazy about it, but unless youre planning to do full 30-60 min training sessions every day I wouldn't worry too much. Just don't decide to go beast on it at 3am.

Do you have a balcony? You might be able to buy a bag + stand and put it on your balcony if there is enough room. However, this can also be quite noisey, but again, if you just want it to just beat up for a few minutes out of the day I really wouldn't worry. Thing is, you might really get into it and want to start training, but cross that bridge when you get to it.

Be sure to have some wrist/hand protection. I've fucked up my wrists a good few time taking naked fury hailmakers into heavy bags.

If you want to actually throw power punches, I would recommend you both take boxing classes and get a heavy bag and at least some hand wraps. Otherwise, you're likely to mess up your hands and wrists. The downside with that solution is that it would cost money and time, both of which you've said that you don't want to invest in.

There are other alternatives like stand-up bags, but that's also costly and you would be able to easily knock them down unless you're a very small or weak puncher.

You could possibly wall mounted bag but that's inadvisable unless you have a strong brick/cement wall or you have a place where you don't mind shaking off pieces of the drywall.

Your original solution with hand-held pads might still work if you're willing to take a few boxing pointers, but most people don't know how to hold pads or punch properly.

I would have to say this punching bag would change my life the most. It is great for fitness and it would really help with getting some stress/anger out.

There are also free-standing bags

These guys are being flaming assholes. Some people vent through physical exertion. It is necessary to learn to control your anger to the point where you will not physically lash out at something or someone that doesn't deserve it. However, it seems to me that's exactly what you're trying to do here. If you aren't at a place yet where you can just suppress the destructive urge when you're angry, you're at least at a place where you can understand when you're calm that wrecking shit isn't okay.

To that end, a [http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0046XKIC2/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?qid=1462334102&sr=8-2&pi=SY200_QL40&keywords=Standing+punching+bag&dpPl=1&dpID=31ehvDXQAIL&ref=plSrch](standing punching bag) might be helpful to you. They can be a bit on the expensive side, though. Failing that, keep in mind your pillow could always use an aggressive fluffing.

All that said, this should ideally be a temporary measure until you get to the point where you can suppress your desire to destroy things even when you're angry. If your anger is bad enough that you're not able to stop yourself from doing things you'll regret later, sooner or later that's going to come back to bite you in a big way. There are classes for that kind of thing, and they're not the farce the memes and movies make them out to be.

Good luck on your journey of self-improvement. Don't listen to the obnoxious dicks that want to bring you down just because you're not finished yet.
