Al. I currently have a 6" mirka ceros and vac. It is an awesome tool. The only compliant I have is that the transformer is made to just sit on or just hang from the vac. I think for a tool in this price range there should be some type of molded spot for it to park itself. I have also used the festool and will say that the two products are comparable. Both are well made and work great. Dust collection on both is awesome. I would guess in the 90%+ range. I went with the Mirka because at the time it was a better deal I got the sander and vac and over $300.00 in sandpaper for about $100.00 less than the festool. That was before their price increase this year too. The deciding factor for me would be wether or not you intend on owning other festool products. If you are I would say get the festool and vac, if not then I don't think you can go wrong either way.
