Lab workers: With which brand of pipette driver / pipettor should we stock our lab?

My current lab is a mess of pipettors that won't hold a charge, stop mid-use and need shaking to restart, or simply don't work but haven't been discraded because someone might fix them one day. Inevitably, the two reliably working pipettors seem to have powerful migratory and nesting instincts; put one down for ten minutes and it'll find its way into another lab, possibly even into someone's drawer.
We have some money to buy some new pipettors. Huzzah. If you have some rock solid, reliable pipettors that have lasted for a few years (possibly with minor repair or replacing the battery), what brand/model are they?
