We use Applied Biosystems Synthesizers and are VERY happy with them. 
Applied Biosystems strives to maintain high quality in their synthesis.
 We have found this to be true. Synthesis time on our 394 model is 5
minutes per base which is a reasonable time. We looked a Beckman
instrument and decided against it because the oligos were not
synthesized on parallel cycles ie: it makes one oligo then another
etc.....ABI 394 makes 4 at a time.
