To get real cyclone benefits you’ll need about a 5hp blower and a real
cyclone. Everything else is a less effective variant that still will separate
out heavier chips, but won’t be able to capture fine dust as well.

In a basement shop with no door to the outside you may want to
consider the real cyclone. I have an above ground shop with a 1.5hp
cyclone and it’s a convenience but it misses a lot. I have another,
2 bag dust collector I use for my sanders and planer.
