I see some sellers still selling an older model of the Hovabator Genesis 1588 Incubator, which does not have the digital thermometer/hygrometer readout that the new model has. If you want to see what I'm talking about, here's the new one:
Here's the readout from the newer model:
And here's the older model:
The older model just has a series of screws and plugs on top.
My question is, what are the differences in these models? I see an up and down arrow on the readout of the newer model. Is that the way the temperature is adjusted (if necessary)? It would seem like a handy feature to have (being able to set the specific temperature digitally), but maybe I'm not understanding how it works. Is that just a thermometer reading, or is it an adjustable thermostat? It says "temperature set", so I imagine it MUST be an adjustable thermostat. The older model had a series of switches on the inside that had to be adjusted in order to change the temperature. If anybody has experience with both of these, I'd appreciate any reviews you might have about the differences between the two. Many sellers are still selling the older model, and the newer model is usually a bit more expensive. Should I spring for the digital display one?
Thanks for any help.
