oil filter?

with all the debats on engine oil brands, and when to change the oil, no one really talks much about the oil filter. i feel it is just as important as the oil that you run. i used the ac delco filter on my s-10 with mobil 1. i just wanted to get some opinions from some of you guys on what you run,(k&n, moble 1, ac delco) or what ever else. thanks

I like Mobil 1 filters-they have a finer mesh and catch more material.

I use the factory original filter. Bought a case of them. Use Mobil 1 as directed also.

Oil filters are all the same, just get the cheapest one. (joking)
The Mobil 1 and K&N have almost identical specs, however the K&N is supposed to have a higher flow rate.
Hastings makes good oil filters also. They can be hard to find, though.
