    I use the Brinsea Mini Advance and the Brinsea Eco Octagon 20 with auto turner. As far as the LG and Hova Bator from all I've read you should go with the Hova Bator. There is a new version on the Hova Bator that has electronic controls and it's getting good reviews. Good luck and have fun.

    I've got both the Little Giant and the Hova Bator 1588 and there is no comparison. I got the 1588 for about $128 shipped and the extra $75 is well worth it, no worrying about temp regulating etc. If you go with the LG you should plan on making at least a knob modification by screwing a milk jug lid onto the factory knob and putting a line on it so you can see how much you are turning - you cannot make precise adjustments without it IMO.
