    Anyone have one? I saw it on the hatching thread but no one with geese said anything. Just wondering if anyone used it.

    I have one and I am replacing the heating unit on my old Top Hatch with the electronic heater/fan unit that the IncuView has. I have no issues with the way the temp and humidity is measured so far, turning (rolling) works well, quiet. I like that the unit regulates the heat well and recovers quickly if you have to remove the top. I have lost no eggs this year due to incubator issues. Easy easy easy to clean. Just watch the turner connections and if they come loose remove the little rubber cap if you can't see to lay back in place. Mine stay fine and instead of stopping the tuner I just move the connections off for the last 3 days...they don't have to be soldered in place. I've checked the readings on the control panel with my digital temp/hygrometer and everything is fine.

    I purchased one a couple months ago to try my hand at incubating, and I like it very much. I had originally purchased the HumidiKit for it as well, but it was defective...had another one sent, and it too was defective, so I returned both humidiKits, and now just use the IncuView by itself, monitoring the humidity myself, which is working out just fine.

    I just ordered my second Incuview over the weekend. So I now have 1 for incubating, and 1 for the final 3 days...I hatch out peafowl eggs, so for me, I don't have the luxury of setting all of the eggs at once :)

    I love the open window concept, however, I wish there were more of an instruction manual on using the features. Thankfully, it's basically just a plug in and go! They boast a built in countdown, but I can't figure out how to use it, but for me, having scattered hatch dates, I really couldn't use that feature anyway lol.

    The kids have absolutely loved being able to watch everything that happens from pip to hatch!
