I'm just suspicous enough to suspect that stat was put out by the Original filter manufacturer.

In you opinion what makes a CHEAP filter loose water pressure?
or why did they say a cheap filter looses pressure?

I'm not sure actually. Something about the material they're made of, but like VTX Al said, it could all be marketing ploy. Link:

Has anyone (who doesn't drink the TT water) ever tried not using one, and had a chance to compare?
when you buy a water filter - look at the Microns - the lower the number the more it filters and the less water pressure you are going to have.
Also if you look at the existing filter and then pick up say a 5 or 1 micron filter you will notice that the center hole is considerably smaller -
I actually run two filters - one inside and one outside - both the same as the standard filter that came with the trailer and do not have an issue with water pressure.
