    I used a unimom... they are good but unfortunately my was faulty and broke. ..I don't think that's common. Also their customer service is quite awful unfortunately because the pumps are good.
    I used a medela hospital grade which is a closed system but they are very expensive. ..I hired one.
    I've never used spectra but they are apparently good.

    I have the unimom and love it. In my experience their customer service has been great!

    Wow - had never heard of Spectra, but they look great.

    One of the few non hospital grade (ie cheaper) closed system pumps is the Ameda Purely Yours, which I was happy with and you can find on sale for under $250.

    You've gotten great suggestions here for closed system pumps - I'd highly recommend reading up on the difference between open and closed systems before buying an open system pump.

    I bought a second-hand Medela swing on ebay for $100. I already had my own "collection kit" from when I hired the Medela hospital grade one. (had a prem) I loved it. I found it as good as the hospital grade Medela. If I'd known this in advance I'd never have arranged hire. I would have just bought the second hand one and saved myself a heap of $$$.

    Loved my Unimom Allegro, and I got it when it was on special too
