Breast pumps

Hey there - its about time to start thinking about getting a new breast pump. I'm going to see about getting one for free from my insurance company. I've pumped for over a year with each of my four kids - and since I work outside the home, the pump will be getting a great deal of use. I previously had Medela Pump in Style pumps, but I heard about Hygeia from some mamas in a local mothering group. I still have the Medela pump but I gave away all the shields, tubing, bottles, etc (thinking that I wouldn't need them any more!) Tried to give away the pump too - but that person didn't need it.
Does anyone have opinions about breast pumps?

My opinion barely counts because I've only ever used one kind, but with my preemie I used a Medela around the clock and have no complaints about it at all. It seems like a great pump, very comfortable.

I've always used Medela since that's what I started out with when I rented a hospital pump and what I ended up getting as manual pumps/electric hand-me-downs. I have an almost new Medela PISA and I've been very happy with it. It's what we'll use with this babe too.
