Do you know if these will prevent the user from using a faulty outlet?

The German PRCD-S does that, won't stay on if the outlet/installation is iffy. :)
Hefty price though (~170€), compared to a non-S one (~30€). Is it worth it?

To me, yes, absolutely.

My power box, when I built it I installed a hospital grade plug but like the idea of built in GFI.  Not sure why I built the box as I only use it in the shop, it would have been really useful in the 80s, 90s on sites where I might have had 3-4 tools plugged.  I don't even carry corded tools in my van excepting my vac sys.  Since I bought Milwaukee's rotary hammer, even my Milwaukee hammerdrill that carried me for the last 38 years has been retired.  Even the vac isn't used that often as I have the Milwaukee 18v.  The only other corded tool  I use regularly is my 80's Hilti TE-72 for busting up mortar filled steel jambs on replacement jobs.
