I have a Medtronic miniMed which I think is the best one because…
It's small and fits in any pocket and clips onto your clothes almost unnoticed
It's very simple to use and tells you the steps it's self
You don't have to work out your insulin dosage because the pump does it for you
Easy to change the cannula because it comes with a devise that basically puts it in for you
There are lots of different things you can get to customise it to suit your style
There are different ways to give the insulin, over a short amount of time or over a few hours
You can chose which colour you want
You can as alarms to remind you about insulin
Quite strong wear and tear (I've dropped it a few times and its fine)

I would recommend asking about it
