Yeah that one of the most common way due the dead front GFCI is cheaper than GFCI breaker { 15 for dead front GFCI Vs 45 for GFCI breaker } and there are few locations that I will use the deadfront GFCI device no question asked.

I have see early verison by time I got in France they came out with improved verison so I haven't try it yet due I am still in France but I did check couple websites for it and seems look not too bad but I will give a try when I get back.

Costwise they should be right on the par with TR GFCI receptales.
