In our lab we have a Licor (long read version) and an ABI 373 with stretch
upgrade. We routinely get around 600 bases per sample with the licor (16
samples per gel) and around 300 bases per sample with the ABI (36 samples
per gel).

So, in our experience, the licor is best for long reads of a few samples
(eg sequencing a large insert) and the ABI is best for lots of short
sequences (eg EST sequencing).
