Kaplods: I've never had one of those ones. But there is the Reynolds Vacuum sealer and Glad has one now that has a pump. These both do great jobs at keeping food fresh in the freezer. The pumps cost about 7-10. The only thing are the bags have to be a specific bag. But I only use the bags for freezing certain things, like fruits, veggies and meat. And I reuse the bags, even though you're not really supposed to. They work just as good over and over. A box of them is about 2-3. You can also check out Ebay.
This summer I'm going to be freezing a bunch of fresh fruits and veggies. When I go to the farmers market and if I have my own garden, I'll be buying/picking extra to freeze. It's easy to do and they taste better than store frozen ones..
