We bought the Hoefer DyNA Quant 200 (I believe through Pharmacia) and 
are really happy with it--much less variable than the older version I 
used. (Or maybe I just got better at using it.) We use it for Arabidopsis,
tobacco, and plasmid DNA (calibrated with different standards). (No
affiliations with either company, etc.)

Hope this helps
