    I am thinking of getting it, but was wonderring if anyone has experience with it????? If so, please share...IS it any good? does it hold steady temps? how is the humidity? is it as easy to clean as they say it is? I realize you have to get your own hygrometer and I already have a very expensive accurate thermomitor so that wont be a problem. ANY INPUT IS APPRECIATED!!!!!!! Thanks! JEN

    I have the brinsea octagon 40. I think the 20 is like it but just smaller and maybe some more features. Ive had this one for about 8-9 years now, still holds temps as perfectly as it did the first day I used it. Brinsea really makes great incubators.

    I just got the Octagon Advance EX. While I am currently fighting back the urge to hatch anything I can find in it, I can only tell you my thoughts on the customer service and quality of construction. The peeps at Brinsea were fantastic in answering all of my questions, being available to me constantly, extremely helpful in tracking, and shipped out faster than the charge could post to my account online! The box arrived in perfect condition with all items intact. The plastics used are heavy and appear well formed, so I really feel that I got quality for the money. I have no doubt that the Eco 20 would be the exact same way. Good Luck!!!
