I have never heard anything positive about the canister filters. Plate filters can be a PITA. I have totally eschewed filtering. I have single walled bright tanks that are held around 36-38 degrees. I use a product called Biofine Clear A3 (it's vegan, if that means anything to you) and add it to the bright tanks after a yeast dump.
I'll second all of this advice. I used the Biofine in the fermenter after cold-crashing and dumping yeast and that also works very very well. I didn't have standpipes in the bright tanks, so dropping sediment in the brights would have been a Bad Thing.
