If true then why do others run (or replace these) with far more expensive systems

Noise, heat, and motor life.

While all vacuum pumps make noise, and generate heat, big expensive pumps produce less than a black box. And they can last 10-20 years, running all day, every day, with minimal maintenance.
And a pump like a 10HP rotary vane pump should easily outperform a black box.

I went with the Hurricane because of price. I was pretty shocked at the cost of a bigger vac system. I felt like I was already spending enough.

I have to say though it works well. I did buy a big box of 3m foam earplugs......
