Most Drs. and Endos do not know that much about pumps, rather you 
should make up your own mind as to which is best for you.  Do not buy 
ANY pump until you've worn it for a few days getting an idea of how 
it operates.  I do not mean to test it with using insulin, only to 
get an idea of how the menu system and physical requirements feel to 
you.  And as far as the reps go, believe half of what they say about 
their pump and nothing of what they tell you about the competitions.
