    I vote for Medela

    I used medela, and I was very satisfied. I hope this opinion can help you!

    I also got my swing from Celki around HK$1,450 (can't recall the exact price). But I didn't get the discount as I didn't rent from them. Oh well.

    As to pumping with a single pump sometimes I do leak from the other side. I have seen on their leaflets that Medela have these cups that you put on the idle breast whist pumping the other breast to collect any leakage. Not seen this around tho' so not sure if it is available in HK.

    I have never used a dual pump but I guess it would be more efficient but also more expensive.

    I have heard better things about the Avent Isis because it can be both manual and electric - but does everyone prefer the Medela Swing more?

    I have been using the full set of Avent pumps for 7 months now, and find them to be very good.

    I use the double pump at home, and uses the single Uno pump with a hand pump in the office. Sometimes, if I travel to China for work in the day time, I just take a hand pump with me.

    I find that speed for using the Avent hand pump and the Uno pump is around the same, but it is more convenient. I can usually pump out around 3oz of milk in around 15 minutes from one side.

    When I use the duo pump, I can usually get around 10 oz total from both sides in 15 to 20 minutes.
