Hi all,
the Evrogen MINT kit worked better than the SMART kit for me. The SMART kit produced strange concatenated primer/adaptor artefacts. Currently it is used without any polyT modifications producing ~75.000 good quality sequences of ~250nt from 1/4 plate GS FLX run.

Only problem: High amount of rRNA contamination ~50% in the best preparations.
Does anybody else have this problem using SMART or MINT kits?

I'm looking forward to get my first titanium runs...
