In my experience the Dexcom sensors blow Medtronic out of the water. Medtronics never worked for more than 3 days and were horribly inaccurate and the fasting programing was a royal pain. Dexcom's sensors were right on target after 7 days, when my trial was up and could be programmed at any time. One of the major reasons I chose the PING was the future upgrade to the new system w/ integrated Dexcom CGMs.
Animas has an early upgrade program where you don't need to wait until your warranty is up to upgrade. This depends a lot on your insurance but I know with mine that I can pay $399 (US), trade in my PING and get the new one when it comes out as long its still under warranty. You can do the same thing for the PING right now if you're using an older ANIMAS pump model, I don't know about the warranty constraints on that. If you wait until the new model comes out the trade-in pre-warranty upgrade costs more, similar to older model upgrading to the PING.
