Generally, roller transport processors are the worst for everything. They're 
kept at the maximum
in control development temps for minimum time span runs (if indeed they are 
kept "in control" at
all). They are often "one shot" chemistry feed, rather than replinishment 
method, and the final
drying section is simply too hot. And of course they are dirty, prone to junk 
embedded in
emulsion and scratching.

If you can find a place that does "dip and dunk" processing you'll be much 
happier. With E-6,
they are also the best for tight processing controls, assuming the place keeps 
a close finger on
the pulse (which most do, as the machines are generally $50K and up).
