    I don't have the auto turner... but I [​IMG] my Oct 20 Eco. Easy to use... plug in, set temperture, put eggs in, count down the days, change angle 3x's a day, check humidity every now and again, lockdown on day 18: add lotsa water and a cloth on the bottom, take dividers out. Watch hatch. Works every time! With 4 hatches down... Then an easy clean to make it ready for next time.
    Pros: easy, idiot proof
    Cons: works too well, gotta build more pens
