The 96 well Tm gradient version is great. I wouldn't touch a non gradient 
machine for love or money at this point.  The gradient allows you to optimise 
primer sets in amazingly short times.  This is especially good if you are 
optimising primers designed on one species to another species, i.e. mouse or 
human to sheep.
