Shop-Vacs work OK for smaller dust-producers like sanders, but a planer might be pushing it, IMHO. The big drawback, for me, is the noise those things make. Unless you spring for one of the more expensive Feins or Festools, most shop-vacs are real screamers.
I have a Fein Turbo 2 that is real quiet, but use a real dust collector for my tablesaw, planer, and router.

Of course, that’s just my opinion…I could be wrong ;-)
