    You could go look at them at an online store like Cutler supply and read the descriptions.

    I did that and all I saw is that the 1588 is set to a special temp. and the 1583 in not. Does anyone know if that is true?

    My hova cirulated air 1583 has the wafers for the heating, a 1588 doesn't have the wafers. 1588 are suppose to be pre-set and digital but a 1583 does the same thing all you have to do is set your temps the first day, watch it and adjust if needed then set your eggs. I have never had a problem with mine.
