Question Which oil filter is better and why?

Just coming into the fold...So, which is best, to use the stock type canister filter or an adapter /filter combo like: LN ENgineering Oil Filter Adapter - 10601 with (eg.) Bosch Oil Filter's - 3332
...and of course...why?
Thanks!

LN Spin-on Oil filter adapter

Regarding the spin-on oil filter method and NAPA 1348, refer to Jake Raby's comments at 12:35 on this video:

NAPA Gold 1348 is recommended when your car is equipped with the oil fed IMS Solution. LN engineering recommends NAPA Gold 1042 for standard spin-on oil adapters.
