Comments: Does a good job of filtering out sediment. Might do a better job for me, but it doesn't really fit the Spectrapure MPDI-25 unit. The center bore of the filter isn't wide enough to fit around the outer ring at the top and bottom of the housing ... I have to press the filter down so the ring is forced into the fibers of the filter, which may affect the filtering, and also causes the filter to be tilted within the housing (it's basically too high).

Comments: i have been using these sediment filters for a while now. Although this isn't the "best" you can get, these perform more than adequately, and the price is a huge plus. With my 4-stage RO/DI setup, and taking into account the cost of carbon filters (I use .5 micron), I have found these allow for more gallons/$, when compared to the more expensive models of sediment filters you can buy. The finer sediment filters get clogged quickly are are pricey to replace often, whereas these are inexpensive enough to replace on a regular basis.
