A lot depends on the volume you expect to process. Back when I was
doing a lot of black and white film work I made the investment in a
Jobo ATL-1000. That was more than ten years ago and it is still going
strong, although used less today than in the past. It produces
absolutely consistent negatives with minimal hassle. I used to have a
CPA-2, but I sold it because I just found it too much hassle to run.
