It’s a great question, Tom. I wish that I lived in a climate where ducting outside was an option. Unfortunately that isn’t practical in Minnesota.

I think the big questions are real world airflow performance and filtration. The test results that I’ve seen in the past would lead me to an Onieda cyclone. Personally, I think they are probably worth the extra cost. That’s easy for me to say though because I am not currently in the market for a new dc.
