Turbo oven vs countertop convection oven??

First of all, HELLO - newb here -

I have gotten a lot of great info about Turbo ovens here (like NuWave, Flavorwave, JetStream, etc) and it seems that if you want a good convection oven that also makes good crispy PIZZA, then the JetStream seems the way to go.

Then I came across a few "countertop" convection ovens at Walmart, etc. I was wondering how they would compare to the JetStream. There is one by Hamilton Beach that gets good reviews, and costs less than the JetStream, plus it seems more durable (can be viewed at Walmart's website). It looks like a big toaster oven with rotisserie plus convection.

Does anyone have experience with this type of oven? How would it compare to the JetStream (or NuWave)?

Does it cook as quickly since it has convection? Does it cook similarly to the turbo ovens?

Any info is appreciated.

Since I am not familiar with any of the appliances you are talking about, I hope someone else on the board can answer.
