    I had one and loved it. I had the r-com 20 and used it for almost a year. Then sold it to friend when I bought the sportsman. I liked that you set it and don't have to worry about it except to fill the water up ever 3 or 4 days. Only thing I didn't care for was the little music tune it played every hour. But I guess that is to let you know it's turning the eggs.

    Thanks I appreciate your feedback! Did you go larger then had to buy the sportsman - it is one of those cabinet ones right?

    I was hatching for a friend and was running out of room. So decided to go ahead and buy the sportsman 1502. Yes it's a cabinet incubator but I also have the pre-set hova bator genesis 1588 and I love it too.
    It's great if I don't want to start up the big bator and it's temps hold great all you do is add water. I bought mine with a turner but it's made of Styrofoam. You might want to get one of those instead the price is great and a bunch of people on here have them. They get great reviews.
