    I bought one, got it Monday, and its been running a couple days, waiting on some quail eggs.

    Despite my room's major temperature swings, it hasn't BUDGED a bit.

    I will never ever buy another styrofoam incubator. Ever.

    Does yours have the auto turn?

    About how much space does it take up?

    Why, hello there friend! [​IMG]

    I do not have the autoturn, simply because turning the eggs is SO easy. All I do it roll it very gently three times a day. No need to open. I may invest in the auto turner later on, but really, I don't go out often enough to bother. [​IMG]

    It takes up VERY little space, its a very small incubator; I took some pictures for ya'll.

    As for how its going, its going great! The temps hold stable and I haven't had an issue with it yet. It does make a slight humming noise from the fan, but its certainly not loud enough to even be noticeable once you learn to put it in the background.
