Great so far
Pros: First one came with lower than expected build quality. Newegg replaced super easy! Second one is cooking Chili right now. Good reviews on this one so we went for it. Seems to be a quality product. Newegg A+ Service.
Cons: with the digital timer, if the power goes out you're stuck. not much to do about that.

Best one I could find
Pros: We wanted a large oval slow cooker that could be programmed to cook for different times, and after a lot of research, this one looks to be the best of the bunch. You can program it to cook for up to 24 hours in 30 minute increments, and it has 3 heat settings to chose from (hi, lo and simmer). When the programmed time is up, it switches to warm so if you're not home in time, the food won't be so overcooked.
Cons: NONE of the programmable slow cookers will let you switch from hi to low after a certain cooking time, for example, or hi to simmer. Not really sure if this is a matter of expense or just trying to keep the programming simple, but some company should jump on this.
Other Thoughts: I saw some folks complain that no cookers had a delayed start time. While this might be nice for non refrigerated things, most meals have ingredients that need to reach temps of 125 then 160 within a certain time frame to avoid food poisoning. If you're not sure if your slow cooker cooked your food properly, or if the power went out and you're not sure exactly when, throw that food out!
