    Anyone using one, can you tell me how you like it? I have a still air Hova-Bator w/ autoturner now, full of eggs but am seriously on the edge of getting another incubator. Thanks, Karen

    LOVE IT! No messing with the temps. It's worth every penny I didn't pay for it (it was a gift [​IMG])

    I like mine. I got it in December and have done two hatches with it and have never adjusted the temperature ever. I will never go back to the older dial type of thermostat incubator again. I'm thinking of a 2nd one for a hatcher even though I don't really need it, but I WANT it.

    I've got 2 of them plus a 1590 which is the older version. I like them a lot. I use them both as incubators and hatcher.

    I got one and never looked back...been going on for three years and only replaced the heating coil element last month. I would buy another one in a heartbeat!

    It is much better than the wafer kind!

    Be sure to get a Flukers therometer than the one comes with the incubator....throw that one out because it is not consistent.

    I bought the Genesis after giving up regulating my Little Giant. I've got eggs in it now on day 7 and can see veins ( candled tonight ). The temp has stayed consistant and all I do is check the humidity daily. I like the larger viewing window and better water tray for the humidity. I'll let you know in 14 more days how well I like it.

    Thanks for the feedback, I think I'm just going to go order me one. There are going to be several different batches of eggs coming and I don't want to try it with only one incubator. I'll probably get one on ebay since I have a $25. ebay giftcard to help defray cost. Karen

    I got mine off ebay from Cutler supply. It arrived in 3 days! Cutler is great and their feedback is excellent.

    Mine is on the fex-ex truck as we speak en-route to my house. I just checked. I have the R-Com 20 and I love it because its brainless! But I wanted a second and couldn't afford the second R-Com. Thanks for all the other feedback, Im glad every one loves thiers!
