Default Pippin vs. Egel

Hi all,
We are looking for opinions on whether you prefer the Pippin or E gel for size selection when doing NGS libraries. Has anyone compared them side by side? We are a low throughput lab with the opportunity to become high throughput in the near future. We are working on quite a few protocols with one being a custom protocol that needs 3 separate gel extractions. Currently those are being done on agarose gels, with only 1 sample/gel each time this step is needed. We need something more high throughput than that and would also like to avoid the cleanup step after agarose gel extraction. Any opinions, pros or cons on either machine would be greatly appreciated.

The egel is more hands on. The pippin prep takes longer but you can set it to do what you need it to and walk away.
