I have been using a Nemesis for about 4 years now and I love the machine.  The reason that I bought it was due to its large capacity (up to 84 slides); but I find that it is very flexible in terms of using multiple staining protocols and antibodies on the same run.  I work in a biotech research histology lab, so we rarely do the same stain from day to day; so flexibility is key in this environment.
The software is very similar to the DAKO machine and the machine itself is the same as the LabVision machine.  One thing I have to say is that BIocare is a very customer-oriented company, which is very important to me.  If I have a question about a stain (or the machine), they are very available to help me out.  Also, if there is a problem with the machine, the repair guy comes right away to fix it.  I can only say that about a few companies that I have dealt with.
If you have any specific questions, let me know.
