    In that price range I would look at at Brinsea Eco 20 and a GQF Genesis. Both have autoturners available for an additional sum. The main advantage (in my mind) of the Brinsea is it is much easier to clean. The Genesis wins on all other counts. I line my Genesis with paper towels when I remove the turner and get setup for "lockdown" and that has made cleanup much easier.

    My "go to" store for the Genesis is Cutlers Supply. I bought my Brinsea from Amazon, got a discounted one that was "open box".

    Overall, I recommend buying a Genesis with autoturner from Cutler. It's a little less than $200 and you will be happy with it for anything up to turkey-sized eggs.

    Brinsea all the way pricey but worth it. It's almost set it and forget it.
