Personally, I'm using the Ameritron ADL2500, which is 4 hefty resistors 
in a case with a fan. I modified it so it automatically switches the fab 
to reduce the noise.

No leakage, no corrosion, no mess if I drop it or I kick it. Much 
lighter. No dangerous oils, and my shack doesn't smell like a chip shop 
when I'm doing some testing.
