Ill keep this quick,

Can you pay the creds for the net damage multiple times to prevent more than 1 Net Damage in the run? or can the effect only be used once? Or do I just need to stick to my Deus X + Test Run combo?

No restrictions exist on the card, so there's no reason to not use it more than once.

Meant to also ask the comparison worth wise?

Feedback Filter seems lackluster to me. 3 credits to prevent 1 net damage is generally a losing proposition. Unless that net damage would kill you, it will only take one click to recoup that card, and you're pretty much never going to be able to gain 3 credits instead for that click.

The only times it is very useful is when you want to stop yourself from taking lethal net damage. In such a situation, you generally only need to prevent 1 net damage to survive, so Net Shield is better. If you're hitting what could be a huge Junebug, the amount of credits Filter will take to save you are going to be impossible to afford, and Deus X is what you really want here. Shield and Deus also have the advantage of being tutorable by Test Run and Self-Modifying Code, which is a big advantage.

Trashing a copy of Deus Ex then running with an installed Clone Chip and 3 spare credits is a handy little backup if you're feeling paranoid.

I'd stick with Deus X if you're running Test Run and/or Self Modifying Code

If you are scared of damage Deus X is the better option. It can break an AP ice, which can be very handy for face checking in the early game. There are lots of AP ice.

The only case I can see for taking Feedback Filter is you are afraid of the brain damage assets. Expose cards would have more utility in that case.

You seem to forget that Feedback Filter can be trashed to prevent up to 2 brain damage. Especially now that HB has more brain damage tricks, like Cerebral Overwriter, this could be pretty useful.
