    I am pretty new, but have been reading a lot! I have a question about an incubator. Can you tell me what incubator the Brinsea Octagon 20 Dx And 40DxDigitalHihg Incubator is? I found it online. If you could explain it a little better then the listing did I would appreciate it, perhaps the link to what incubator it is on the Brinsea website? Also how much would you pay for it used?

    Thanks!

    I don't know if this will help you but I have this site copied. I just bought a used Brinsea 40, have yet to receive it and know little about them.

    I *tried* to ask them but it seems they are unclear on what they have. She says it is one incubator with 2 options?? I am guessing the turner is what she is talking about. It is 2 years old and she said she has used it once. I'm thinking it is the same one that people have posted about being $99, and then whatever the price of the turner.

    I went back and they have added another picture, it is the 20 with the turner. Not sure where they got 40DX?

    It is possible they mean bator and the turner (autocraddle).

    Any way some people are so sloppy expressing themselves and simple communication....

    To mi this deal raises red flag already.

    [​IMG] I was getting the same feeling. I asked a couple point blank questions and they were ingnored, she, he, whoever even added my question, that was not fully answered to their listing.

    Ugh I can't stand dealing with people like that. . Personally I would avoid placing a bid; if she's that incompetent before the sale, chances are she won't be much help if you experience issues with the transaction or the item afterward. Although I just scrolled down, looks like she doesn't accept returns anyway...
