RE: Scan with Filter
The API shows one row per next() call but the number of rows fetched per RPC can be configured much higher with Scan.setCaching().

Filters are basically just server-side predicates that will dictate which rows/columns/values will be returned to the client.  This does not relate to the number of rows sent per RPC.  See http://hbase.apache.org/docs/current/api/org/apache/hadoop/hbase/filter/package-summary.html for more information about filters.
