    Love my Genesis 1588. I have not had the Brinsea.

    Works great, holds temp well. Holds 41 eggs with turner.

    Never tried the Brinsea yet, but I've been using my 1588 for quite a while, never had any complaints with it, in fact I bought another one just a few months ago. [​IMG]

    I have 2 brinsea 20 incubators, they are great. I set the temp when I bought them and have not touched them since. I have hatched over 200 chicks out of them.

    Did you end up getting the 1588 and would you recommend it?
