BLUF(bottom line up front): These are good filters at a good price

FPR is made up by HOME DEPOT.
MERV is what counts. Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, commonly known as MERV rating, is a measurement scale designed in 1987 by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers to rate the effectiveness of air filters
MERV Rating is the primary rating system used in the industry, both domestically and internationally. MERV rates a filter’s ability to capture and hold particles and pollutants.

MPR (Micro-Particle Performance Rating) is a rating system developed by 3M. It rates the manufacturer’s filters and their ability to capture airborne particles smaller than 1 micron

FPR (Filter Performance Rating) is a rating system developed by The Home Depot for brands sold through their stores, including Honeywell. It utilizes a color and number scale from 4 to 10 that closely resembles MERV rating.

The below chart will help you understand which of the ratings are comparable to each other:

MERV 6 = MPR 300 = FPR n/a = Efficiency = Captures lint,household dust and pollen = Change Frequency =30 Days
MERV 8 = MPR 600 = FPR 5/Green = Efficiency = MERV 6 + dust mites & mold spores = Change Frequency=90 Days
MERV 11 = MPR 1000–1200 = FPR 7/ Red = Efficiency = MERV 8 + smoke, smog, cough/sneeze & pet dander = Change Frequency=90 Days (filters being sold in this deal)
MERV 13 = MPR 1500-1900 = FPR 10/Blue = Efficiency = MERV 11 + virus carries, odors & bacteria. = Change Frequency=90 Days

omg the system stress comments are ridiculous.

I've done HVAC since 92, and have serviced everything from 5k window units to several hundred ton rooftop chiller units on 30 story condo units.
Ive never replaced a system because they used filters that were too good...

People with no filter or filters that are never changed are the biggest problems. (smokers inside the house are next, shit is nasty on a coil)
Older central air units were designed to come apart and provide easy access to coils for cleaning. Newer units not so much. You can get to coil but they dont make it easy. If you use good filters and change them regularly you don't really need to get to them anymore.

if you are worried enough to care about merv ratings, you probably pay attention and change your filters as required and will cause no harm to your system using the highest merv rating available. If it whistles, it's because air is getting around the edges of your filter. Sure the restriction is going to be higher but that's what a filter does is clean the air, and amp draw on a PSC (permanent split capacitor, on 90% of home systems) fan motor is negligible. There was a study done and it was proven.
If you have an ECM (electronically commutated motors) motor, the amp draw can increase, because an ECM motor adjusts to maintain CFM and if the airflow is restricted, then it ramps up power to maintain airflow.
ECM motors are on high end units. Not your run of the mill household unit. If you spent the money for a system with ECM motors, then you probably won't be putting crappy filters in it to save money.

Those old blue fiberglass filters do a fair job of protecting equipment but do little to enhance indoor air quality. The higher merv is good to control pollen and dander and dust. If you dust your house you will see a difference the higher merv you use.

last time they have me an FPR 10 when they mistakenly ran out of the 4th FPR 7 for my store pickup... sold that for 20 bucks... so it's like I paid a dollar each for the other three

need single month ones, so I can mix them with 3 months ones. otherwise it's a waste for 3 months ones when the season changes and you never use it

These stress out your unit. Get the cheap blue ones and replace them every 2 months.

These are not to bad but are as high is I would go on filters. FPR7 and lower will not cause issues for most system that do not have other problems.
