Magicmark work well.... one my colleagues uses it routinely and will
swear by it. However, my understanding is that the way they(magicmark)
work is different, I think, from the Biorad biotinylated markers,
since they are designed to contain an IgG binding site.
If you use streptavidin, the Biorad should work as well, I suppose (I
don't have personal experience with it); however, I'd imagine that
Magicmark would serve a more general western blot purpose even when
you do not use streptavidin.

hope that helps
