Default filters?

Was wondering if anyone ever used any type of filter, in specific a plate filter. I have been looking at maybe getting a plate filter for between kegs but was hoping to get some feedback on them first.

Does filtering only benefit the look of the beer or will if affect the taste also. Basically, is it worth the money to buy a plate filter?

I have a canister filter, but don't use it much. Doesn't seem to change the flavor. If absolute clarity is high on your list, then it is probably worth having one.
