We can highly recommend the RCOM-20 we have 2 and are so easy to use.

I have a fully automatic Corti,  the instructions are badly translated & recommend too high humidity levels.... but value for money from the Incubator shop its great!

We have a brinsea octogon 20 with an autoturn cradle. We regularly get hatches of 20 out of 24 hen eggs with it. We've never had that high a success rate with the still air ones we've owned.

I too would say the R Com king Suro, great little inci, but make sure you get one that hatches the number of eggs you need, I had to upgrade  ;)

I'll add my vote for the RCom King - I've got the 20 size, but never seem to get more than 16 in it at a time, but it's very reliable & easy to use - can be pretty much left to it's own devices once set-up, until the last few days.
