You mean, besides robustness? I am fairly new, but I would be wary of
anything where the company sends you two pumps (does some company really
do that?) -- it smacks of an expectation that the pump will break

Felix the fossil :).
Since you are "new" by your own admission just thought you should be set 
 straight on the supplying of two pumps by disetronic. The company is a swiss
one -
swiss law requires a back up for a medical device. It's not that they think 
their product is not good - it is just what the law required - and those of us 
lucky enough to be Disetronic users have always had piece of mind and have 
 never been sitting up giving ourselves boluses every 4 hours or (ugh) putting a
 long acting insulin in our systems while we wait for a new pump to be delivered
to our door. And gee - neither of my two trusty h-trons EVER have given me a 
bit of trouble where i had to send one back and switch to the other (not that 
it doesn't happen). And now that they both passed their tech inspection dates 
- i have two new pumps...

As for me and bells and whistles - I too caluculate whatever i need to in my 
head and enjoy my easy to use trusy htron.

And just for s&*( & grins - when I am considering the purchase of a new 
 product I ask the sales person what is RIGHT about theirs...those who can only
me what is wrong with the competition I walk away from.
