We have a Bond Max in my lab and love it!  It has been very dependable and easy to use . We also have three Ventana Ultras and two Lab Visions.  We originally got the Bond for EBV and Kappa/Lambda in-situ but also do our hormone receptors and a few other immunos on it.  Our pathologists felt the signal obtained with the DAB on the in-situ slides was superior to the NBT of the Ventana slides.  The one draw back that Ventana will talk about is that you have three racks of ten slides - each rack is independent of the others, but not the continual load of the Ultras.  You also cannot mix pretreatments on each rack because of timing/heating issues.  But we have not found either of these two issues to be a problem for us.  The Bond III is supposed to be even faster than the Bond Max but haven't looked at that.
