On the other hand give Mini-Med a little slack. By calling the 800 number
and speaking with them, you can get a pump in 24 hours. Also, I have been
speaking with some MM users who were using their 506's for 8 years or more. I
think overall, both pumps are very reliable and your selection shouldn't be
based on this factor.
