Does anyone have experience with "the cyclone" and white vinegar for hive treatment?

If you do a search on vinegar, you will find a few posts where it has been discussed. 
Here is one to start with ->

I think you will come to the same frustrating conclusions that I did.

1.  There is no real data available, only people that love it and swear by it.  These are the same folks that have spend $600.  If I spent that much I would lean towards it working too,  right?

2.  If there is merit to acetic acid (which I have no bias either way to),  then why does it take a $600 piece of equipment to apply it,  when the other acids can be applied with methods that cost nearly nothing.  I've tried to understand the application method to see if I could build one, all those that tout it are very tight lipped......

i made some kind of a vapourator but...
well results were somewhat...hard to say, i'd say round' 50% mites fell off but that's not enough...
and since i don't know about the potential hazard towards bees..i quit.

There was an extensive thread on here with several people who used it responding.
