    There is no best brand. There may be a best brand in a price range.

    I too like the Genesis BUT; money is the factor....cheep best I would pick the Genesis about 200 w/turner, best for a higher dollar would be a Brinsea 40 DX with the turner and the humidity pump 499 list.

    I would love to have the Brinsea but had to settle for the Genesis.

    Just finished my very first time ever hatch with the Genesis 1588 and it was fool-proof...the only thing newbies MUST do is get themselves a very good, easy to read temp/hygrometer. The Genesis was fun to watch and you could easily see what was going on.
