    Some people have had some very good success with these. There are a couple of threads on them. If you search for reptipro you will get some results with good feedback. For now, here is one that I was subscribed to. Its closed now but only because the OP requested its closure.

    I have also heard that some people have had success with these. I have a older Sportsman cabinet that we converted to digital and it works great.

    i like the fact that it's digital so it's more exact then guessing if its at a good temp or not. i also want a cabinet now instead of getting a little one then a cabinet later. to me that's a waste of money lol. and at the price i cant go wrong with it

    I. personally would be a little cautious with this seller. Look at his negative feed back here. http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=reptipro&iid=120741910163&de=off&items=25&which=negative&interval=365&_trkparms=negative_365

    He
    seemed to be doing great until the last 6 months and is now starting to get a lot of negs and it seems as if one buyer paid and never received their item. I never buy from a seller unless the have a 99% or higher feedback.
    On the flip side "oh Lordy, help me. I want one too!"

    Do a search on the web.
    Amazon is a good place to start!

    If a seller has less than 100% I look into why... And not receiving item is a serious negative!
    There's no guarantee you'll get your $$ back when shopping with ebay and it's a huge hassle with pay pal and time consuming.

    ETA~
    I personally would not buy from someone with this type of feedback. There's a lot of neutrals too. :-(

    Do a search by the product name, also do a search for Reptile Incubators.

    I don't know anything about that incubator but I definitely second other's concerns about this seller's feedback. That's a whole lot of people with the same complaint (slow or no shipping) to look past. Does it list who the seller is on Amazon? Make sure it isn't the same person just listing on several different sites. I don't know if the eBay seller is the only carrier of this brand, or if it's widely distributed. It's unfortunate people have to be so careful now days with purchases. It would be nice if everyone had a good set of morals, values and decent character.
