Great vacs, just not very ergonomic as far as tool or hose storage goes. Those don't have the HEPA filter with them though, so the price is pretty normal. If you want the HEPA version, it is probably 100-150 more. I love mine with the HEPA. Even for regular clean-up as there is no dust and virtually no funky odors when I use it in peoples homes. My old vac used to throw as much dust as I was picking up.
I only use mine for tool dust collection in the shop. Throw a Bosch hose on it and I think they are a little better than the festool vacs for tool dust. I do agree that the cord/hose storage is terrible.
