RE: [IP] Paradigm 512 vs. 712



Matt:

I have the 712 and the difference between the 712 and the 512 is the 712 has
the 300-unit reservoir.  I heard about the battery deal but I have never
seen it on the website and as a matter of fact, when I got the 712 at my
home, it used the same manual as the 512.  I had the 512 first so I am
pretty familiar with the features.  If you use larger amount of insulin, you
probably need the 712.

Good Luck, Mark

Subject: [IP] Paradigm 512 vs. 712

I just got my "amazing offer" in the mail for the Paradigm upgrade for the
512
for $300.  It's a low enough price that I thought I would take a closer look
at the new 512.  I've been reading about the new Paradigms, but haven't kept
up with the new features.  It seems that compared to the 511, the 512 offers
that Bolus Wizard, the remote meter, and the lower basal rate delivery,
customized alarms.  The 712 is the model which allows you to install a less
than perfect battery and I know it has some other neat options, but I can't
remember which one has which.

The MiniMed website makes it so hard to find info on the specific models.  I
clicked around for 10 minutes before I finally found the 712!  Sorry to be
so
dense, but can anyone give me a quick update on the 712 vs. the 512?  I
think
I want all the goodies on the 712, but for the 512 price!

Thanks!  Yessi Palmer
