Re: [IPk] Veo reliability?

As with anything, I think some people are just unlucky. I've had Minimed 
pumps for 12 years (on my 3rd one now) and only had one problem (where I 
had to take out and reinsert the battery every time I wanted to bolus) - 
which was resolved by them sending me a temporary replacement pump the 
next day and then fixing my broken pump and sending it back to me. I 
don't think any make or model of pump is more or less reliable than any 
other, to be honest.
