That DID should serve you well as long as you keep it clean and lubed. I personally have not had the best of luck with the DID chains. maybe i just got a defective chain, but i kept getting kinks and ALL the time. (even with religious cleaning/lubing)

wd40 works great too. karasene is just cheaper.
i think it was like $5 for several gallons and i just pour it into a container and dip the brush in, scrub chain, repeat until chain is nice and clean, then apply motul chain wax. used to use pj1 before motul but i would never go back. motul is WAY less messy.

On the last bike that laid down about 185@ the wheel and was a daily driver/fun bike/saw track a few times, I religiously cleaned/lubed the chain and only adjusted it ONCE within 8k miles, the chain looked new, sprockets looked great, I figure it would have lasted 10-12k miles, but we will never know.
Its all in the brand of chain/maintenence/riding style/etc as to how long the chain will last.
pj1 is black i believe, and every time i used that stuff it slung all over the place.

Yea, that PJ1 is messy and sticky, seems to attract every piece of dirt around. Almost need kerosene to get it off your back wheel, been there done that.
