[IPk] Which pump and infusion set?

Dear all,

 I'm going to give you all an opportunity to wax lyrical on probably your
favourite subject.

 After several weeks on lantus my Diabetes Sepcialist Nurse has agreed that it
is not suitable and we need to look at pump therapy. We will be preparing a case
for funding from the Trust. I am arranging meetings with pump representatives
but, before I do that, I'd like some input from all you experts. I'm new to all
this, so I really need your help regarding what questions to ask and the pros
and cons of different pumps and infusion sets. I've thought about some questions
(see below) but any and all coments and help will be greatly appreciated.

 Which pump do you use, and what do you like or dislike about it? What is your
experience in dealing with the pump companies? If you have used Disetronic and
Minimed pumps, how do you rate the different pumps? Is there anything you wish
you had known or had asked about before deciding which pump to get? In the light
of your experience, is there any feature/features on another pump which you
would like on yours?

 What about cannulas and infusion sets - what are your good and bad experiences
with them, and which would you recommend?

 I would appreciate as many replies as possible, so that I can make a fully
informed decision.

Looking forward to your contributions,
