Have you ever used one of the non ATL units?  I used a CPE2 for a while then
got a CPP-2 and loved them both. The results are very consistent. I used
mine for B&W and E6. Using the 1500 series drums, I can process up to 8
rolls of 35mm at a time. I shoot much less film now than I used to, so I was
thinking of selling the Jobo to finance a Epson/Cone set up for B&W
printing. As a test, I developed the last 2 batches of film by hand. I don't
think I am going to sell the Jobo. Yes, you have to dump the chemicals in
and out, but you don't have to agitate. I can be doing other things in the
darkroom while the processor does the work.  
Just my opinion.

I would have regretted getting one of the non-ATL ones (where all it does is
temper the still have to pour in the chemicals at the right time,
and empty them) I'd like to offer an won't regret
getting a Jobo automated processor ;-)
