Re: [IP] Any good stories about the Paradigm??

As I've seen others say (in this thread, or others), most users are
particular to the pump that they are using. I (over the past 22 years have
worn pumps from several manufacturers. I beleive that my experience with
each was good and can honestly say that the service and support from each
vendor was good.

I am currently using the DTRON+. Although I'm reading that they are bulky or
conspicuous, I looked at both the DTRON and HTRON side by side, and the
DTRON (separately) looks muct larger, it in fact is only about 1/2" longer
than the HTRON.

Wth that said, they are a far cry smaller the pumps I've used in the past.
My first pump was roughly the size (Length & Width) the size if a brick
(much thinner though). As far as it being conspicuous, all pumps have that
potential. If you want to hide it, there are ways to hide any pump.

I've found that the features that sold me far outweighed any of the
"pitfalls" of this device.
