No experience, just uneducated opinion, well maybe semi educated... The 1588 advanced with turner from incubatorwarehouse.com cost more, but I've had many people tell me they swear by it. $184, about $200 with shipping. I asked around about TSC farm innovators pro incubator with built in fan and turner. One said it worked good for them, many said NOO!! They bought it, fought it, ended buying a Hova 1588 later and wished they did to begin with.
The 1602 might be fine, just most I've discussed incubators with either say build your own (incubator warehouse sells a kit for that also, I'll wait until I have a need for a cabinet incu) or get a 1588.
A lot of people like the Brinsea, but the mini is a joke, the 20 costs twice as much as the Hova 1588 and holds half the amount of eggs.
Just my humble opinion, I've never hatched with a incubator before, won't be trying mine until May, wife thinks we need to go on vacation end of April, messing up hatching and gardening plans.
