America's Test Kitchen had a segment on food savers. Their conclusion the cheaper models were OK for short term storage. 3 to 6 months. After that the bags seemed to "leak" and let air in. Their conclusion was the higher end models were better because they sealed better for long term storage (6 months or longer).
We've gone through 2 of the cheap ones. The draw back for us is that we have to let it cool down after sealing several bags. We seal enough for 2 to 4 people in each bag. That way we aren't opening a 6 pound bag of meat for a meal for the 2 of us. We also double seal each bag.
