comments on the mixed reviews of Peltier element thermal cyclers and then notes
changes MJ research did to improve the reliability of the
commercially-available elements when used in cyclers.  He then ask:

>How many people that don't like Peltier
>systems have their adverse experience on POST-July '90 MJ RESEARCH

Well, we got an early MJ cycler several years ago which eventually developed
problems and was "upgraded" with a new element (under warranty),  Since then we
have had ZERO problems; this on a cycler that we use every day (often several
times/day).  A very satisfied user.
