We have a minimed, and I wouldn't trade it. Its navigation is very easy, and it's compatible to the Continuous glucose monitoring system, which we use to identify trends and tweak basal/bolus doses. The CGMS does my worrying for me at night, and allows us to cut back from 8-10 checks a day to 4-5. (Gina rides that "roller coaster" with BGs. She is very sensitive to both insulin and carbohydrates.) We're told that she may outgrow the extreme blood sugars over time but in the interim, we're grateful for the RT monitor.
