"I am opposite to you. I have the animas ping and the rep came over with the minimed with CGM. I love the Animas Ping with stand alone Dexcom. The only reason I am shopping around for another CGM is that my son is allergic to the DexCom glue. My son…"

"User Input - that's why I so loved my Cozmore pump. John Walsh was involved in the design and features. As a CDE and pumper himself his input really made that pump something that worked for PWD's rather than engineers and/or MD's"

"Laddie - I like your traffic light test because it illustrates well the real world settings that we PWD face ecery day. Instead of a traffic light, it could be trying to finish your pump settings as the bus or rapid transit vehicle pulls up to your…"

"The Vibe, even with the single-press bolus population, would also fail the "traffic light test" miserably. There is still a lot of faffing around scrolling up and down, particularly if you are giving a combo bolus! Also, with the MM, when…"

"I like that "traffic light" test. I guess I will never be satisfied with any pump unless it is my Cozmore 1800. That pump had so many wonderful and useful features. I especially like the hypo manager that helped me to know exactly how many…"

"New Pumpers who start with Animas and have never used another pump seem to be happier with Animas than those of is who previously used other pumps. I call it the "traffic light test". With Medtronic I could test my BG when stopped at a…"

"I switched from MM to a Vibe in November 2013, basically so that I could use it with the Dexcom G4 sensors. I would agree with most of the points by other posters. The Animas menu system is a significant PITA. Bolusing takes about three times as…"

"I know that a lot of people complain about more button pushing on the Animas, but I hardly even notice it. Also, the Medtronic delivers insulin so S-L-O-W-L-Y..... and the Animas delivers it quickly....so honestly the amount of time it takes to push…"
