Overall, if you're looking for portability and durability, I can see these outlasting the mesh filters, as it's a plate of metal. If I had to bring one filter with me as I go away from civilization, with the expectation that I'd have to have it last 10 years, then this would be it.
The main downsides are that you pretty much abandon the AeroPress' wonderful cleanup feature of popping out the grinds with ease -- now you get to clean up a disc full of grinds, and worst of all, even on a medium to coarse grind, you still end up with grinds in the hole, and it takes some effort and a decent amount of water to rinse it out.
Ultimately, I've found that you can rub away at the grinds in a large mug, but at this point, you're using more water to clean up than you're consuming, which is perhaps fine if you're at home, but if you're camping and water is limited due to access, weight, and filtration speeds, it seems silly, so for lightweight trips, you might be better off with the paper filter.
The disk is very thin, and of good quality. I very much doubt I will ever need another. If the tiny holes get clogged with grind bits, a gently applied toothbrush and rinse will keep it sparkling. For seasoned coffee aficionados, this is a nice filter to have handy with your Aeropress. For newcomers to artisan coffee, purchasing this filter may not yield the results you were expecting, but it ultimately boils down to personal taste. As a few people have already pointed out, this disk is not noticeably more "eco-friendly" than the paper filters, but it is a reusable alternative.
I got this thinking that I won't have to use paper filter again.
I feel like paper filter still tastes a little bit better.
So I eventually went back to paper filter.
But this one gives a bit of oil during extraction.
This makes the coffee tastes different, and I like that difference for the bean I used it on.
It's up to you if you like the added flavor.
Nonetheless, a great tool if you're looking for tweaking your coffee making process.
BTW, this one is much more solid in construction.
Had a meshed one before, it broke about 1 year in.
