Vinz: The MiSeq completes a PE100 run in 1 day compared to 8 on HiSeq and 12 on GAIIx. If you look at intensities and then error profiles for runs they drop off at the end. Much of this is due to the time the reagents sit on the instrument and Illumina only support ten days.
MiSeq runs fast, very fast. I am hoping that this has an impact on quality and would not be surprised to see users publishing 200, 300 and even higher read lengths. Lets wait and see when people get hold of them.
