I agree, it was one of the best things I ever bought for DS! I had one called Diaper Nanny which apparently you can't buy the cartridges for anymore My only recommendation is that you check reviews and make sure that they aren't heavy on the plastic consumption.
Some like the Tommee Tippee ones put a couple of twists in between each nappy. To me that seems just as wasteful as tying a knot in the bag (using extra plastic). And apparently some brands don't hold many at all, although that didn't concern me as I always emptied it at the end of the day. My Diaper Nanny was just a brilliant smell enclosing system that was hygienic and easy to use. I would definitely get one again if I could.

I thought they would be great, until I went to my SIL house and although it wasn't a strong smell in the nursery, I could still get a hint of it. As far as I was concerned a hint was too much for a babies room. Having said that, I have no idea what brand or quality it was, or if she used it correctly, so it's not much help to you.
I use nappy bags, and have one of those small bright colored wheelie bins that you buy from cheap shops just outside my laundry door. DH empties it every week into the big bin. Works great for us.

I can smell a nappy through a scented nappy bag, so it'd have to go straight into the big bin for me otherwise everything'd just smell.

I have a nappy bin that takes normal bin bags. We put wet nappies on straight, but wrap smelly ones in scented bags first. Very convenient.

It's like most things I think - what works best for you? My brother and SIL swear theirs is the best thing ever. I was in the "poo in the bedroom is not nice" club, so I used the individual bags and threw them straight into the big bin outside. On cold nights (which is most nights here! ) I'd drop the bag just outside my back door (no pets, so it's okay) and put them all in the bin in the morning.

I've never had one, but have been happy enough with nappy sacks. I don't even use them for wet nappies, they just go straight into the kitchen bin. Only poopie nappies are bagged up and I pop them in the laundry until I can be bothered to go outside and put them in the wheelie bin.
