    Quote:First decide how many eggs.

    20 or so, then the best 2 are prolly the R-Com 20 or the new Brinsea Octagon 20 EX.

    Both are a similar price (kinda $400 ish)

    Both have auto-humidity control.

    More eggs .... then the Sportsman would be my choice .... needs some attention, but not much. The new one is $550.

    I'm sure there are others, but those three spring to mind.

    Oh, I'd take a close look at Lyon too, I think they have one with auto humidity control.
