I think more depends on the sander than the collector. I agree on filters clogging. . Exhausting outside with or without a cyclone is your best option.

I am using a 1.5HP Jet blower on a Super DD, exhausted outside. On a Supermax sander there is zero dust, that said with the dust control built into the sander I am confident even a 1HP collector would do the job.

My suggestion is a single drum a sander b/c a dual drum is harder to collect. if you don’t have a big need for a collector, a 1 HP wall mount shoukdl do the job and can be repurposed later for miter saw collecting or even a garage vac.
