Really you just have to check them out and see what you like.  We have the Animas Ping.  We like the remote that was pretty handy for a spinning 3 year old or bolusing in the car.  However, we wont be getting another Ping when it's time for another pump.  I want an integrated CGMS and the MySentry and my son wants tubeless so we will be weighing pros and cons between the omnipod and medtronic in a few months.  If the Animas rep says that their pump will be integrated with a CGMS soon don't beleive them.  =)  When we were first looking at pumps they told me it was 6-8 months out...that was 4 years ago.  =p

We literally just started pumping with the ping yesterday. Since my dd is 3 we really liked the remote bolus option for her. And the screen its so much easier to see

I love the ping for us!! I would look into the omnipod. I hear sometimes it has issues with the adhesive but there are ways to fix that. With the pod he won't be attached to anything!!

 We love the Omnipod! It's gives her so much more freedom without that tube. She had a Minimed for 3 years and the tube kept getting ripped out.

 Thanks, we are leaning with the Omnipod.
