What the hell I just linked that and didn't look at the price....
Best investment I've ever made that I'll never be able to sell!
Edit: Okay here's the same one I think that is way more reasonable.
I highly recommend the Able disk fine metal filter (they also have a not-fine version if you want something closer to French press). It lets more oils through and produces a more flavorful cup with more body without being nearly as muddy as a French press. It's also reusable and saves money in the long run (I personally hate anything resembling a financial subscription). I prefer Able's to the Kaffeologie S filter, which has a greater tendency to warp.
1) yes, a bit leaks out when you invert it. Just invert it over a cup so it's not wasted.
2) The pucks aren't as convenient as when you're using a paper filter, and some grounds will inevitably stick to the filter, but it's still easily rinsed off (takes just a few seconds).
3) Depends on how consistent your grinder is. Yes, you will have more sediment in your cup than with the paper filters.

A bit out of left field, but you could buy an Aeropress and give that a shot. Maybe pick up a metal filter if you find yourself liking it.
