We have recently bought one here and are pretty pleased with it so far.
We bought it mainly for fragment analysis, but are sequencing with it as 
well. The fragment analysis software is very good and enables us to 
accurately quantify PCR products, obviously we have to use a fluoroscein 
labelled primer for this. Soilid phase sequencing done recently works well
