Rated 4 out of 5 by MamaMarina Very Gentle!
I have been using this pump for about 4 months now. Though I haven't needed to pump more than a 2oz serving at a time, I am able to pump at least that much (if not 3-4 oz) in about 5 minutes and achieve letdown within a minute. The pump is extremely gentle. The silicone cups are very comfortable. - I have not experienced any pain whatsoever. In fact, the pump feels very, very similar to my son nursing. The info that comes with the pump warns that if you are accustomed to using a typical electric pump, it may take a week of adjustment to switch to this entirely different pumping mechanism. I've never used another brand, so I can't compare, but I'm really very satisfied. My only wish is that the storage bottles came with nipples! I highly recommend it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by whitnie Would not recommend
I bought this pump and am very unhappy. I wish I would have chosen the Medela. I tried it for two days, and got very little milk, which decreased my supply, so I had to go out and rent a high-grade pump to get my supply back up---contrary to what a pump should do! The suction was weak, milk leaked out the breast cones, the pump was loud and after 10 minutes of pumping, got louder. I would not recommend this pump.
