I've been installing these for years.
I just did a hole house with mini splits
I put them in shipping containers for offices.

How does the washable filter in the mini split deal with the welding smoke, dust and other air contaminants that occur in a busy shop?

You wash it more than the standard once a year. There are other filters that remove allergens and odors you'd need to replace sooner.
I don't weld that often. I do use the chop saw, torch, etc. as well as sanding and so on. They did suggest shutting it down when painting or heavy sanding with a whole lot of dust.
Much of my work is grinding, polishing and so on. Plating won't bother but the powder coating sure will!

I owned a house in Mexico several years ago, and these systems were common-place down there. At the time they weren't being sold in the U.S. and I always wondered why.   Finally they are gaining acceptance here.  

I put one in a commercial building I own two years ago and it's worked out fine.  We'd added a couple of offices to it and needed a way to heat and cool them without disrupting the HVAC in the rest of the building.

This might have changed now that they have become more popular, but previously I thought that most of the major U.S. manufacturers sourced their mini-splits from Mitsubishi (Japan) or China.  In any case, the one we installed is a Trane, and it has been trouble-free.

These are being installed by the thousands here in australia, but not for car storage due to the design of our sheds. My shed can get to 44 degrees centigrade in summer so nothing gets done.
I have an LG brand in my home office and it's great. Compressor ramps up and down on demand using the inverter.
I work in air cond and the most popular is Daikin and mitsubishi by far, but I got the lg on price and its been fine.
Where I am in adelaide its called the Athens of the South so you can work out our temperature range

I'm an HVAC guy by trade, and put ductless units in frequently. If you do some wood working in the shop, don't be stingy about cleaning the filters. Dirty filters are a good way to smash the valves in the compressor. A/C in the garage is mandatory as far as I'm concerned.
