    We did. Kyle said it hurt more than the quick sets though :( I liked them because they come with their own inserter which would be one less thing to drag along. I called minimed and told them to switch us back to the quicksets. Luckily our insurance had just changed us to 2 month supply instead of 4 so we only got 2 boxes. I'm going to send a cpl to school, keep a cpl in his D bag and save the rest for emergencies. Of course this was just our experience so yours might be very different :cwds:

    We started with them so it's all we've ever known but have no complaints. :) DH refers to them as "the easy button"when explaining how it works to friends and family

    We switched from Sure-Ts and Will loves them. They stick so much better and he says that they hurt less.

    I like them. However, they don't come in he 43" tubing so I use them for back up where I might not have a serter with me. I prefer the quick sets and sils just because of the longer tubing.

    We just switched to them from sure-ts about 1 1/2 months ago. She started by using some quick sets/some Mios but now she always asks for the mios. She likes the "pink" color and the fact it is all one piece. She thinks it will be the easiest one for her to learn to put in herself.

    We switched to Mios about 4 months ago and we love them. Connor says they hurt way less than the Quick-sets when we insert them. I love the all-in-one design so I don't have to carry a separate inserter everywhere with us. We have boxes of Quick-sets that are unopened because Connor refuses to use them now that he has tried the Mios.

    Thanks tey again to all your responses...find it invaluable. Sounds like they are worth a go. keira is obsessed with pink, so think that willo definately be a selling point!:)

    With our last order, I just got 1 box of mios and 3 boxes of quicksets so we could try them.

    We like them. Hunter switched as soon as they were available. He didn't like the quicksets at all.

    Both T and DH are using Mios and both have said they hurt less than the quicksets on insertion. I like that the site is smaller and it's an all-in-one system. And we found out a box of Mios cost us less than a box of quicksets. Good all around...
