We are also about buying a thermal cycler, at this moment my 
personal favourite is MJ researchs "DNA-engine", because it claims 
to cool/heat 3° per second !!! Further more it features two 
independent blocks for 0.2 or 0.5ml vials or slides .

On the other hand i have not yet tested it (but I soon will).

if anyone out there has, let me know
