TRD Air Filters: yay or nay?

I have been using a TRD air filter for several years, but I am not a big fan of cleaning them. Is it even worth it to use the re-usable TRD air filter (or K&N equivalent)? I am wondering if I should just throw it out and use disposable toyota oem air filters.

I stay away from k&n because i'hate to clean and r oil it and then wait for it to dry etc but if they work fine for you then stick with them.

Concept of disposing dirty filter and replacing with a new fresh OEM one is convenient and satisfying. I would not want to deal with washing, oiling and reusing multi-use filter elements.

The negative reports on the K&N regarding amount of dirt they allow to pass versus OEM combined with stock filter flowing just as much air caused me to go back to OEM.

OEM over TRD/K&N

I much prefer my disposable paper filters.
