Dust Collector question

I am outfitting a basement shop and need to do as good of a job controlling the dust as I can. I am planning on a cyclone style collector in the 2 Hp range. I have literature from Oneida, Grizzly and Penn State. They all seem similar in design. Does anyone have experience with these products that they would like to share?
Thanks in advance.

I have the Oneida Super Dust Gorilla (2 HP). Love it. I consider it the best investment I have ever made in my shop. I "shopped" Grizzly and Penn State as well but all things considered; price, fittings, service, shipping, reputation, *performance numbers*, construction, etc., I decided on Oneida.

google "Pentz". Bill has done a great deal of analysis and testing. His site has more than you probably want to know but worth going through.

Second that one--I'd take a Clearvue built to his design over any of the ones from Oneida, Grizzly, or Penn State and probably save money in the process.

Thanks. So there is a difference in design as well as differences in the materials. I'll take another look at the clearviews.

FWIW, I went to clean the filters on mine (not a Clearvue but an earlier iteration of Bill's design) the first time I emptied the collecting barrel and found that there wasn't anything in them to clean.

I have the Clearvue and could not be happier. It does a great job of collecting dust and the service Ed provides if you have questions or problems is amazing.
