I used the deluxe plus for about a year and a half with new rotors. Very rotor friendly the dust was minimal and it took about a week of driving to get the pads dirty and even then it was minimal and easy to clean with a dry rag
I just put on the deluxe pads with new rotors again. Right of the bat they are smoother and do have less dust. I think they are softer. My guess is they would probably not be as good with repeated heavy braking but I have only had them on a week so I don't know.
