We are using the Ingeny system in our lab mainly for DGGEs. The major advantages over the biorad kit are the potential to run a huge number of samples per gel (up to 48) and more convenient design of the heating element (and general beter temperature stability). On the other hand most protocols/published work have been optimised for the Biorad kit and reoptimisation is necessary. A good site for comparison is:

I have not tried running any SSCPs on the Ingeny system. I would be interested to hear about it as well.
