Check out:

Mertz and Rashtchian,  Anal. Biochem., 221, p160-165, 1994

If I recall conrrectly using a cold dNTP concentration about twice that of the 
hot dNTP concentration gave the best amplification and labeling.  The trick is 
that the hot dNTP concentration from places like Amersham or DuPont is really 
low.
