Pros: Easy install, solid, cheap
Cons: some configuration may be necessary
Recommended? YesI bought this screen for my cooler conversion. This was quite easy to install and clean. You may have to do a little configuration to make it fit in a 10 gallon cooler, but this is a solid screen.

Pros: Removes most of the trube from the wort after the boil.
Cons: can be a place for bacteria to hide so you need to clean and sanitize it well.
Recommended? YesI think the bazooka screen works better than a false bottom in my opinion. I have had both, and the smaller pathways in the screen seem to filter out more trube.

Pros: Clears wort very fast inside mash tun and all stainless steel.
Recommended? YesVery great product. I bought the 1/2" model and replaced my CPVC manifold with this and it clears the wort usually in one 2 qt pass.
Pros: incredibly sturdy, easy to attach/detach, barely pricier than homemade dishwasher hose constructions, excellent screening
Cons: available in 12" at most places, but can easily be rolled back to fit smaller coolers without damaging its structure or strength
Recommended? Yescan't imagine paying many times as much for a false bottom when these things work perfectly
