They both look like very nice pumps. I have been using a pump for over just 10 years now, you will love it! The pump I have now is the Minimed Paradigm 722, using for over 5 years. Either way I don't think you can go wrong. Things to consider, reservoir size bigger is better, infusion set see what types are availabel for each and what may fit you lifestyle best, CGMs continuous glucose monitors are not that great they do not give you real time glucose levels, they test the glucose levels of the interstital fluid not blood glucose, CGM lag about 1-2 hours behind blood glucose levels...but try it...I thought it would be a substitute for testing my blood glucose but due to the lag I did't find it very helpful. Other things to research...warrenty minimed will not touch a pump after 5 years, they want to sell you a new one but while under warrenty they are great, I cracked mine I called them and they had me a new pump in less then 24hrs, also check with your insurence company, will they pay a higher precent for supplies(infusion sets and reservoirs) for one or the other also test strips, you will be checking you blood sugars more often with a pump. Things to consider with a pump, it will be with you 24/7, you will need t-shirts with a pocket to sleep in. The best part of pumping you only have to eat when you want to not when your insulin is peaking, it may take a little time to get your basal rate tuned just right you will love it and you will learn how to adjust it when you exercise or play sports or sex...things like that. Good luck and happy pumping!
