Recommendations for a food dehydrator for a regular sized kitchen?

I've been reading lots of reviews, and they seem conflicting. Do you have a specific model of food dehydrator that you can recommend? What brands are good? I've been reading about the direction of the fans blowing, or whether convection heating is better, and that's been conflicting and confusing too. Any suggestions? I'd like to keep it under $100, or under $150 if there is a good enough reason to go more expensive.
I am looking to dry the usual - fruit, fruit leather, vegetables, jerky, bread, but it would also be awesome if it was usable to make yogurt or to rise bread (meaning, the trays come out but there is space to put something inside and turn the heat on).
It must have temperature control. Bonus points if there is a timer that automatically shuts off! My counterspace is sort of limited, so nothing too big.
