Best cryostorage tank

Our lab is looking at purchasing a new cryostorage tank. We've narrowed it
down to Thermolyne's Locator 4 Plus or Forma's #8030. They are comparable in
terms of capacity and both have level monitors. The Thermolyne seems more
well-known (around here, anyway) but the Forma is slightly less expensive.
Anyone have any thoughts on which to choose? Any experiences, good or bad,
would be appreciated.

Thanks for your help!
