Purchased the Pflux1 and assembled it without any issues, it did take a bit of time. The video on YouTube by Laguna on assembly is a bit dated (3 years old). The 3 cyclone parts that previously had to have a gasket applied and then assemble are already assembled. The top of the main case over the filter is also done. The screws in the chip container that had sharp points and only had rubber tips that seemed to fall off and then tear bags have been replaced with acorn nuts and small bolts. The sides are easy enough to install but the bottom have the acorn nuts on the outside. Easier to install. The chip container also uses negative pressure to hold the bag fully expanded and works well, no inside the bag cylinder needed to hold the bag open.
I had no problems with the instructions but I did watch the videos on YouTube before assembly.
After only a short time I am quite pleased with the operation. No dust on the floor behind the table saw. Sander dust is no longer in the air.
The Laguna is loud but not objectionable. I ordered a second remote to use with the unit. Laguna sent instructions on syncing a second remote.

I did upgrade from a Penn State Unit that was not adequate, therefore some of my observations are from comparing a very inexpensive 1 bag unit to a very good engineered HEPA filtered machine.

I am ashamed that I put this upgrade off for so long. Shop is a lot cleaner and so am I.
