 I can't help with your decision, as so far the only pump I've used is my MM715.
I also don't have a CGMS. But, if you do decide to switch to another company,
Minimed might charge you for the loaner pump. Is your son's pump out of
warranty, or just dead? If it is out of warranty then I'm pretty sure they will
charge you for the loaner.

 Have you been happy with the Minimed pump? Are there features it lacks that
another pump has?
