What can I say, I think the Medela is the pump to have - it is after all one that is used quite frequently by hospitals. The two modes are great and compliemnt each other. The stimulation mode worked really well for me as it helped with my let down. The suction power was great as it gave me control with how strong I needed to pump. The parts are easy to clean and to assemble. I had borrowed the pump before I caved to buy one. The Medela is pricy so I ended up buying the Medela.
How does it compare? it's like learning to drive on a Cadillac and then using a Lada - I was spoiled by the Medela. The Ameda for one had too many parts to assemble and clean, the stimulation mode was not as effective as the Medela and the suction mode, although can be adjusted, just didn't extract as much milk from me as the Medela. It took me longer to pump milk with the Ameda than with the Medela.
However, the Ameda was 1/2 the price. If you plan to pump a lot, then the Medela is probably worth buying, but if you only plan to pump on occasion than the Ameda would probably suffice.
