    Hi therem

    i my self have not used an Octagon 10. How ever i use a mini adv. made by the same compay, i can not say enough good things about these incubators! If i am not mistaken, they do not have an electronic tempature display.

    Brinsea make great bators. I've got an Octagon 20 and I LOVE it. Only thing to check out is this - as far as I know they don't make the Octagon 10 any more and they haven't done for quite a while. If this is a second hand bator you're thinking of buying, it's probably a good few years old. Which might not be a problem as long as it's all in working order, but I'd maybe contact Brinsea to see if they still sell spares for it. Just in case anything was to go wrong in the future you'd want to know if you'd be able to get the bits to fix it!

    This incubator is on ebay for $10 right now! So it's not to much of a gamble.
