Like Monsta said, they are only hard on the knees the first few times-your joints are getting used to the stress and actually getting stronger! Just make sure you stick your butt out throughout the lift. That, and if you do more than you can handle-your legs start bending inwards as you lift-then you're doing more than you can handle. Have you tried hacksquats? They're pretty interesting, and somewhat close to a Oly squat.

That, and lower the reps, and increase the weights to gain more strength. Most of us keep it around 5 sets, each of 5 reps.

Deadlifts and squats rule!!!!!

A bench at 1.5BW is doing really well considering most of the people I see working out have a hard time just doing their own BW (bodyweight). Doing well and keep it up.

^^^^Well the next step is double your bodyweight. And I'll be honest, I don't think there are many, really, who are capable of ever doing that. People are starting to judge strength by some whacked standards for sure.

At this point looking to get 405 on bench with your current style of training while having "legs" thrown in as an afterthought...is a recipe for shoulder disfunction. Big time.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Aww, man, Capone, deadlifts are freakin awesome!!! I love them, do 'em every workout, and then some!!! I got funny looks from my friend's dad when I deadlifted the axle/tires to her trailer! Just keep your back straight.
Here's a good instructional vid. from Mark Rippetoe.
