What are your CAD/CAM suggestions for small labs?

I am looking to buy a scanner but not sure about the software yearly fee. I looked into the D500 3Shape and 7S Dental Wings. A friend just told me about Identica from Medit blue light.

    Hi there - we're a 6 person lab in Missouri - bought a 3shape last november.  The best thing we ever did!

    So many choices! For a newbie I thnik the level of support is really important. I'm sure you can negotiate a similar price with many vendors.
