    Quote:That is the chance you'd have to take....
    1) do you want to ever hatch more then 64 eggs?
    2) would you be willing to buy replacement parts and install if a part was broken or died?

    It is all based on your needs/wants. Me personally would go sportsman but only cuz I know I could replace a part etc if something broke or was broken.

    That said, inspect it very well before buying, have them plug it in check the fan and heat source. bring a thermometer of your own and check the temp etc. spend some time now to check it and you will be happier in the end with either buying or not buying.
