I'm after a Double breast pump. At the moment I'm exclusively pumping up to 8 times a day using the Medela Symphony. This is a rented unit & it looks like I'm going to need to pump longer than I thought, so wanting to purchase my own.
I'm considering a Medela Freestyle @ $510. I like that its portable, so I can take it with me when I'm out rather than having to use the manual pump.
I have also heard if Unimom but I don't know anything about it.
Does anyone have any feedback in the Freestyle, good or bad?
Does it stand up to long term frequent use?

I second the Unimom pumps. You can get the Forte, which is a hospital grade pump, or the Allegro, which is portable. They're much cheaper than the other brands so I ended up getting both! I use the Forte at home and take the Allegro to work with me. They're both great and you can double pump with both of them, though I think you have to buy a second breast shield to double pump with the Allegro (I just used the second shield from the Forte kit because they're interchangeable).

They are selling the Allegro# with a bonus extra shield at the moment.
If reviews all say its good, I think ill get one.
