I use both a dust collector and dust extractor. If I could only have one, it would be a dust collector because I think they are more versatile.

The DC unit you have pictured has some positives and some negatives. A pleated HEPA filter is certainly a good thing, and the filter cleaning handle is a plus. The filter is a little small, but if you keep it clean it would probably work fine.
The lower bag will be a pain to change compared to larger bins on cyclone units.

With units less than 1-1/2 h.p. users typically complain of inadequate power.
