I have the Weston and I have had items lost in the back of the freezer almost 2 years old and they are still vac-sealed as tight as they were when they came off the vac-sealer. The food is fresh, has no freezer-burn, and no off flavors.

Even when boiling food in the food safe microwaveable/boilable bags they retain their vac-seal with no air inside..

Maybe the unit others were using wasn't making a proper seal or maybe were not sealed correctly. Something wasn't properly sealed if it is no longer air-tight as you described.

The foodsaver can use any standard micro-channel bag. Even the inexpensive Vac-Master bags and rolls.
