    Has anyone bought the new Brinsea Ovation 56 EX? I'm ready to buy but can't find any reviews or videos on how to use it.

    Thanks. I've watched that video but it's very vague.

    As these new models are so new I'm sure it will take a bit of time until people start posting some reviews and vids on how they work.

    Finally received my Brinsea Ovation 56 EX!! The day I ordered it, I called and Brinsea said it would go out within 2 days. I got an email 2 days later saying it wouldn't ship until the 19th. Argh! I ordered it thinking it would be here before my shipped eggs, but no such luck.

    I made a quick video and posted to YouTube. Give it a look and let me know what y'all think. I'm going to let it run a couple days and test it out. Then, I might post more videos once I set eggs, if there's interest.

    Thanks in advance!

    I actually had some set so I transferred them to the Ovation. I love it!! The auto humidity is great. Using this thing requires little attention. I don't babysit it nearly as much as I do my styrofoam bators.

    The lid is heavy so I just slid a tray out when I candle. Makes me nervous because I don't want to break any. Just have to be careful. Another downside is, if the tray isn't full, the eggs will roll to their side. Not a big deal, but some of my shipped eggs must stay vertical. I have some fake eggs I can use as place holders so that's a fairly easy fix. :)

    Good luck with yours!! I'm excited to see how you like it. Is this your first Brinsea?
