I've heard great things about Omnipod. We didn't trial that one, so I dont have any personal insight.
We have a minimed/medtronic and I love it. It's easy to navigate, and is CGMS compatible (continuous glucose monitor). Insurance companies are beginning to cover CGMS. If this is something you'd be interested in getting to accompany your pump, maybe trial minimed.
Animas can deliver in .01 increments... this is especially useful for those who keep a very tight target range, and for little children, who take a much smaller dose of insulin. Animas also claims they're on the cusp of becoming waterproof.
They all have individual areas of expertise. So in the end, you need to zero in on what you look forward to the most in your pump.
