    (I would choose RCOM just because it is computedr-automated...)

    so R com is more idiot proof [​IMG] - i need one i can just leave and anything will do itself, i'll add water though when needed

    Well, noooo... R-Com is less expensive, but Brinsea has equally "computer controlled" incubators. I know because I have seven Brinseas and 1 R-Com.

    2 Brinsea MiniAdvance
    2 Brinsea MiniAdvance EX (these are STUPID proof - have humidity pumps)
    3 Brinsea Octagon 20 Advance EX - has humidity pump
    1 R-Com 3-egg

    I wouldn't get the Octagon ECO unless you love to turn eggs... get the Advance of any model - with the auto turner. The EX models have the humidity pumps. They are MUCH more expensive.
