Mine came with the setup hose for the 5 gallon water bucket on top. I just need to go cut a hole in a 5 gallon bucket and I'm good to go.
You can keep the temperature fairly stable as long as you keep the room temperature stable. If you have big fluctuations in your room temperature, you will either have incubator temperature fluctuations or you will be constantly adjusting the temperature.
You can buy a replacement door with a window in it or if handy you can cut your own and install plexiglass for a window. A replacement door will have a single pane of plexiglass in it. I have a 1202 and put a pane of plexiglass on the inside of the door and one on the outside of the door making it a double pane window.
I replaced my original temperature controller with a Spyder controller. I set the temperature digitally and forget about it. As long as the room temperature stays within the heater's ability to keep up or doesn't get too hot, the Spyder controller keeps the temperature within 0.1°F of the set point.
Because I live where the humidity is less than 10% in the house in the winter, I have to add water to be able to get the incubator humidity high enough to do a dry hatch. The bucket reservoir is really wonderful for me.
