LSR II vs. Cyan flow cytometer

I am considering getting a second flow cytometer.  We have a Beckman  
Coulter FC500, but I am considering getting either an LSR II or Cyan  
flow cytometer. Does anyone have experience with these flow cytometers?

We will use the new flow cytometer solely for research. I understand  
that the LSR II is more flexible in the number of lasers as well as  
up to 19 colors, whereas the Cyan can do 9 colors. Both do more than  
our current flow cytometer.

Are there other flow cytometers that we should consider instead of  
these two?
