The design isn't too bad other than reminding me of one of those hamster wheels, but I think it could be modified to change that and add a few more details such as a tryer and temp probe. It would be tough to choose between this and a Hottop if the prices aren't much different. Not sure what kind of support you'd get with the M3.
