I like them. Con is price. My mini does really well for me. I have heard bad things about the cabinets though.

I have the mini advance and the 20 with humidity pump and turning cradle. The mini does 7 chicken eggs. I like them both. The 20 is pretty much set them and forget them.

I agree with them being extremely expensive and small capacity. Temperature tends to be extremely stable but the one that borrowed to try was absolutely terrible when it came to humidity.

I'm a huge fan of GQF brand and have 3 of them. Much cheaper, higher capacity and once set up, very stable

Don't have one, or I'd never have bothered with the one I made out of an old storage tote. Just what I've gleaned from too many hours spent paging thru the notes, old threads, and Google.....
