    I have heard forced air is the way to go. But I dont have any experience with the LG.

    I just bought a still air for hatching. I hate it. It has so many holes in it, it's impossible to keep the humidity up. I lost at least twenty eggs to a lack of humidity. I like to think the forced air would be better. I use a forced air Hova-Bator for incubating. I should have sprung for another as a hatcher.

    I also have an LG still air. This is my first hatch so I dont have experience with the forced air. I do know that it is very hard to keep the humidity up with mine. I have put so many bowls and sponges in there and the humidity barely budged. If I try this again, I am definately buying a fan for it. Since you have not purchased yours yet, I would recommend the forced air.
