I've been using the Fiberseal version with both a pole and a hand sander. Works great, just as your vid shows. Biggest problem, particularly with larger skims and a sheen paint, is getting no sander screen marks. And then you do end up needing a sponge sander where you can't get the big foot of a hand/pole sander in. But basically, these kind of devises have changed my life.
 For large skims, have really dramatically reduced the set up/clean up.
And if you use the waterbucket idea to collect the dust ( needs heavy tweeking) it saves your vac.

Kool, I have been looking them over a few different ones. I do some serious patch work at times and was looking at something bigger but then it really starts getting expensive, a power sander was what i really wanted  with suction ;D OH YEAH

My experience is that if you're looking to control dust, these are the bomb. But they don't make the work any easier.

What a nifty gadget, I am going to get one of these things as I have been doing a lot of drywall repair lately (thanks to Hurricane Fay). The dust is not only aggravating but time consuming to clean up. Thanks for the vid!

I've used them, and though yes, they do what they're advertised, they clog up the vac's filters frequently, enough that on anything more than simple repairs it's not worth the time every 20 minutes to spend at least that much getting the dust clogs out.

Now if someone could come up with a wet/dry vac design that isolated the filter from direct assault from the micro-nized dust, then we might be in bidnezz...

I've talked about that repeatedly- the water bucket system that catches it before it ever gets to the vac.  Works really well, just need to deal with a quarter bucket of mud sludge. I am also playing with a intermediate bucket with a paper filter in it before the vac ( which has another paper filter in it.)

Lots of options - filter only, water and cyclone; buy or make your own.
A cyclone separator doesn't use water and is very easy to clean. Take a look at the mini CV06.

Here's a review of a different brand cyclonic separator -

Here's two plastic lid low-tech versions - mount on a 5 gallon pail.

This is a review of a "water bucket" available at Amazon. Should be easy enough to mount one long tube (in the3 water) and one short tube to the lid of a bucket and make a serviceable version of your own.
