    I've decided to upgrade to a better incubabor. I've been looking at both of these high tech ones, and wonder which one would be best.

    I have an r-com suro 20. I love the ease of it thus far. Today is lock down day on my first hatch with this new incubator.

    Brinsea for me too, mine's been great (and I've owned an Rcom before)

    I am thinking about buying one of those R-coms too to try it out since they are a great deal for what you get. I have had several Brinseas and they have always done great. If you don't want or need auto turning and humidity, you can't hardly beat the $99 Brinsea. It just depends on what you need.

    No, I was wanting the fully automated models. With humidity and auto turning. I was about the order the RCom 20, now you all have me rethinking.

    I wouldn't necessarily change your mind if you really wanted to try the R-com. I think that you probably are getting more responses about Brinsea simply because they are much better known. They have been around for years. Actually, one of the main reasons I wanted to try the R-com myself is because of that really cool humidity controller they come with. That is one thing I have always disliked about my Brinseas- I don't like the way the little humidity control works (but I live in a place that is very dry, so adequately controlling humidity is paramount).

    I am guessing you are looking at trying the units like what Kemps has on sale for $249? I say, go for it. I am seriously thinking I might order one myself.

    I love my Brinsea - It has been totally dependable.
