I was really happy with the paper quality of my squared and blank Leuchtturm, but had some pretty bad feathering and bleeding issues with this dot grid one. I think newer Leuchtturm versions have 2 ribbons, so I hope that while they were at it, they got their dot grid paper up to the level of the blank/lined paper. Or maybe their quality is just inconsistent, time (and more testing) will tell!
I really like that there is an index at the front, and that all pages are numbered. The Leuchtturm notebooks also come with several handy stickers to label the front and spine with.
