I have used the Techne Cyclogene for several years now.  I had to replace all three of the 96-well blocks I use but the replacements (which are upgraded blocks) heat and cool faster than the old ones.  The nice feature of this instrument is the ease in programing and switching blocks (from 96-well format to tube block).  These instruments get used everyday.
