"There isn't a huge difference between the two. It comes down to tiny details and features. I pumped with a Minimed for a little over 2 years. I've been using an Animas for almost a year. I switched because I was having major issues with my…"

"No, they don't. It doesn't matter to them which size you get. It is important that you get the size that is right for you."

"I like hearing good things about the Revel, since I think that will be the next pump if I can manage to get one. They dont try to talk you into the smaller one if you want the 300 unit do they?"

"I agree with solo79, it is a personal preference. So far, my personal preference is the Animas. I havent gotten a pump yet, but thats what appeals to me. Hope this helps!"

"You'll need to decide which pump is best for you. I've used both Animas & Medtronic pumps. Both are excellent pumps with outstanding customer service & support. I had an Animas 2020/Ping for 4 years then switched back to Medtronic.…"

"I think its a personal preference. I am on a Animas Ping. Ask the Dr. to set up appts with both reps to let you decide. They should have a pump they will show you and you can look at and feel and play around with. Personally, I am thankful the PING…"
