    I don't think you can go wrong with either. I have a Dickey and it works well. I have friends with sportsmans (1202s) and they're really happy with them. One has had his for years with no issues. I don't think one is better than the other, it all comes down to personal preference.

    They are both of a good quality and both will hatch birds like crazy. I went for the Dickey myself.

    If you go with a sportsman, upgrate to the 1502, it's a better unit. Don't buy it from Surehatch.com, they have a great price but you'll quickly find that the customer service is the worst you'll ever find. I have a 1502 and love it, I've heard great things about the dickey also but have never used one.
