Does anybody have a particular brand/model of pump that they really liked or could recommend? Does more expensive equate to more success or will a less costly one perform the same. My in network home healthcare store can provide me one by Encore that my insurance will cover.
Thanks for any and all comments.

I would get the Encore even though it is more expensive. The over the counter ones (under $100) are vastly inferior. Although the Vitality Plus Battery OTC system is also a great VED.
