The reviews are temperamental, the FoodSaver is solid and dependable.

Does exactly what its says it will do. I read several reviews before buying about how it was temperamental when sealing, wasteful with bag making, etc. I've found none of this to be true in my case.
What I have noticed (after watching others use it) was it's very temperamental when the bag is made incorrectly, aligned for sealing incorrectly or upside down, or when there is too little space between the food and the sealer.
When they said three inches, they meant three inches.
Basically, if you read and follow the instructions it should work for you as well as it does for me (and the others I showed the correct way)
