$3000 for a single lane of a HiSeq2000 run seems a little expensive to me (although if you're really only running a single sample like that, a service provider/core lab might have to charge more on a per lane basis). If you put your project up on BlueSEQ's exchange, several service providers will bid on it and you might end up getting a better price.

Good luck!
