consumer reports for thermal cyclers

We are in the throes of purchasing a new thermal cycler.
Our requirements are large capacity and preferably not
forced air heating because we are radiolabeling the product
in the reaction.  The models under consideration are:
 an MJR PTC-100-96
 a Techne  model unclear but 96 well format and
 a Hybaid OmniGene
I would greatly appreciate comments on these machines.
We are very concerned with the subject of reliability
since we have heard rumors that the MJR peltier device 
is prone to failure.
Is there an FAQ on this subject?

Thanks in advance
