Automating special stains

Has anyone done any digging into the companies that offer automation of 
special stains?  I've heard the sales pitch from Ventanna, Cytologix, and 
Dako.  I was most excited by Cytologix at first...until I saw the stained 
slides.  (They simply weren't as good as human hands.  The sales rep tells me 
they can fine tune the stains to our liking.)  Dako is still developing many 
stains, and quite frankly don't offer much variety.  (I'm looking at a demo 
for Iron and PAS stains at the end of this month)  Any thoughts? Experiences?
