From the Manufacturer
The Fein Turbo II 9-gallon dust extractor has been redesigned with an optimized shape and 6 wheels instead of 4 for added stability. It an average of 60 decibels, it is far quieter than most other popular vacuums. The Fein Turbo II comes with a variable suction control, the suction can be controlled via a simple and durable switch. Variable suction control saves energy and reduces noise level to an absolute minimum. The Turbo II also has an integrated drain plug. All models can be used wet or dry, by first taking out the cloth filter bag and adding an optional foam filter. Fein also has accessory filters available that capture particles down to 0.3 micron (HEPA).

I have owned several ShopVacs over the years, including a small model and a big 16 gallon beast, but always felt the sound was too high, high enough that hearing protection was always needed for use (and the motors eventually burned out with a wisp of ozone). Several years ago I stepped up to a 12 gallon Ridgid combination vac/blower, which still works fine (save for a shorting out switch which gave a nice wet finger safety reminder one day -- a replacement switch was promptly sent from Ridgid well after the warranty expired -- which was easily swapped out). Unfortunately, the Ridgid still requires hearing protection, and is an oddball that only accepts cartridge filters, at least that my feeble brain can figure. The Gore filters are a great semi-HEPA alternative for the Ridgid models, but I wish it accepted the paper bag filters, as the Gore filter is a bit of a pain to clean and dry, leaving the vacuum more or less unusable until it dries completely (have read that old stocking hose makes a great pre-filter, but never tried it).
The Fein takes both paper filters and a cartridge filter, like the Gore CleanStream, as others have noted, giving me a cheaper semi-HEPA unit (definitely not EPA/OSHA approved, but acceptable for home use). The Fein will also take ShopVac and Ridgid bags in a pinch, but I now recommend (June 2013) the Fein bags, Fein 913036K01 Vacuum Bags for 9-55-13 & 9-55-13PE, 3-Pack, which are now less expensive than the locally sourced Ridgid and ShopVac bags. The bags work great for capturing small fines like drywall dust, leaving the Gore CleanStream free of caked on dust like the bagless Ridgid so painfully accumulates. I know others cut the bags open, toss the contents, and reseal with tape, but I find the bags inexpensive enough to toss, especially as I don't have to breathe the mess from reuse.
The Fein is very quiet. I admit I was skeptical about the sound claims of the Fein, but it really is low enough to run without hearing protection. Of course, if you have it attached to a tool you probably want hearing and lung protection in place for the tool alone. The powered outlet switch seemed a bit lazy to me at first, but after using it I appreciate it even more, as it forces me to use the vacuum with tools attached (the carrier deck sound of the Ridgid often left me less than enthusiastic for "short" use of an attached tool). Just have to power up the tool and the vacuum starts right up, with a slight delay in starting and ending the vacuum. This translates into a healthier work environment.
The adjustable speed switch is also great, especially for attachment to something like a sander, as too strong a vacuum would often lead to the sander being sucked down hard onto the surface being sanded. Now I can match the vacuum to the tool and task. Fein makes a a relatively inexpensive accessory adapter for tool ports, which I also recommend and linked below.
The minor quibbles I had were over the seemingly loose motor to canister clamps, but quickly realized the vacuum pulls the top down firmly onto the canister, with a strong seal. I can undo the Ridgid clamps while it is running and the motor and canister will separate. Not so with the Fein. The other negatives to the Fein are the high cost of accessories ($100 for a top mount storage basket!) and filters (thus the less expensive bag and filter suggestions). The Ridgid and ShopVac brands include more than the high quality feeling hose of the Fein, so come on toss in a simple nozzle or crevice tool, Fein!
The negatives are far outweighed by the positives, however, so I give it five stars overall. Once you get past the slight sticker shock you learn it is an excellent tool, and recommended for DIYs.
To properly kit out your new toy, order one with the Gore CleanStream for Ridgid Shop-Vac Craftsman/Ridgid High Efficiency Cleanstream Filter #SV-9036100 filters, some paper bags (see link above), and the reasonably priced Fein reducer fitting Fein 921072K13 Step Adaptor and you are good to go. I did not need the nut and bolt modification for the Gore filter noted in another review from 2009 (thanks!). Maybe the filter or motor changed slightly, as the filter easily friction fit on the Fein motor unit.
If you still have a carrier deck sounding model, don't give it up, as I still use the Ridgid for the messy stuff, saving the orange Fein for extended pinkie tool use. The Ridgid blower is very useful too, from inflating toys to blowing out drain lines, something the Fein does not offer.
Why would anyone pay Fein this much for a shop vacuum? Two reasons: quiet operation and the onboard power outlet that turns on the vacuum when you turn on a power tool plugged into the outlet.
Quieter operation may not seem important until you hear the difference. As another reviewer says, a big old Sears shop vacuum sounds like the deck of an aircraft carrier during takeoff operations. You need hearing protection if you're going to run it for more than a minute or two. The Fein sounds like quiet household vacuum, but it has enough suction and capacity for a workshop. The advantage of the auxiliary power outlet is obvious if you use a vacuum to extract dust when you're using a sander or a miter saw. The vacuum turns on just when you need it and shuts off on its own when you turn off the power tool.
The Fein comes with a cloth filter that will capture particles down to 5 microns, which is probably marginally OK for dust generated by a miter saw, but not for handling fine dust from orbital sanding or if you vacuum up after sanding wallboard seams. Fein will sell you a cartridge filter for 1 micron particles or a HEPA cartridge filter that gets down to 0.3 microns. You can buy a Gore Clearstream HEPA filter - the "Ridgid-Sears Red" version -- at Amazon or at a home center for less than a third what Fein charges for theirs. Gore does not list the Fein as one of the vacuums its filters will fit. But it does. Just buy a 2-1/2" x 3/8 fully threaded carriage bolt, a 3/8" wing nut and a 3/8" nylon washer and screw the filter down snugly. You don't need a bag if you use a cartridge filter unless ou're vacuuming hazardous materials.
Barely five stars considering that Fein ought to include vacuum tools in the box, but this thing really delivers on "quiet," on power and on convenience.
