I use the OEM paper ones.
The Scott stainless filters are supposedly better. There are several threads in here that review them.

Eddie seems to like them:

They are worth the money. Take em out and clean em. Mine paid for itself in about a year in the bike I had before my YZ.

I have used nothing but Scotts filters in my last 4 bikes since '03. That means I have bought a total of 4 oil filters since then.

I believe they are a better filter than "paper", but the comparison is not as cut and dried as you might think. Here's some reading on the matter:

been using them for a long time without adverse effects - saves you a lot of money in the long run - I switch between two for faster oil changes, while I leave the cleaning to a later time.
