Personally, I do not get bright beautiful beer unless I secondary, cold crash, and lager; or use a post-fermentation fining agent. And I find the flavor of too much suspended yeast to be unpleasant, especially in hoppy beers, which can be biting and needlessly bitter when I don't clear out the yeast. I also like to reuse my yeast several times, and so I don't like putting anything (dry hops or polyclar or gelatin) in my primary vessel. So I frequently do a secondary. When do I not do a secondary? When I am brewing a cloudy style like a witbier, or when I am brewing a low-gravity beer with an English yeast strain, or when I just don't have time.
This is not your problem, but is worth knowing . . . the CO2 tank valve is only sealed when the tank is all of the way closed or all of the way open. If you are going to leave pressure on your kegs, make sure you open the tank all of the way until it stops, otherwise it will be leaking. At least, this is what one welding gas supplier told me and another confirmed.
