We have a Reichert-Jung 820 manual (old old old) and a fully automated Microm HM 355. Both of us who cut prefer the manual.
The manual is more compact, easier to clean, cheaper.
The Microm HM 355 is twice as big and the blade holder - adjustment screw set-up is neither convenient or easy to optimize.
Bottom line, the fewer moving parts the better.

Subject: [Histonet] your opinion on microtome
I am planning to buy a microtome for my lab ....i already have Leica
manual one which is working perfectly.
Now I wish to introduce a fully motorized one.
Short listed items are: Leica RM2255, Microm 355S, Shandon Finess ME.
Let me know your frank review on
1. manual versus automated option
2. Above all three items.in terms of their performance, maintenance and
breakdown etc. or due you suggest any more better option
Thanks in advance for your feed back. In past also histonetters helped me
to solve many problems, looking forward this time also.
