I put a blog together with links to a bunch of the good DC sites.

My set up is similar to what you are describing. I use a garbage can separator when using the planer. The rest of the time I just use the Laguna C-Flux which has a cyclone. The thein baffle is nice but it has a really high pressure drop and smaller DC systems lose a lot of pressure with one. You want to keep flow and vacuum high as close to the tool as possible. There are a lot of little tricks that can help with that, from 5” PVC rather than 4” hose to limiting the number of elbows, to having one line that you switch between equipment.

I’d also look at the amount of floor space the DC setup will occupy.
