i have read some threads on the A10 with issues like noise, off on button, water tanks, etc. but then I hear others who say they love it!

Would you buy the A10 For Her again if you had the chance to buy new again? Which would you pick?

Thanks

I have the Air Sense 10 auto set for her and love it. I would buy it again without thought to any other machine out there. I have had mine for nearly 6 months and have not had one problem with it. It is almost silent and the female algorithm is really gentle. It has no trouble keeping time with my natural breathing. The only thing I don't like is the display lights can't be programmed to stay on longer. This is my opinion about it.

I had my Air sense 10 autoset for her for one night and despite the fact that it had damage (circuit board) it was dead silent. I've been using a loaner Resprionics 560 and it is also silent. I WAS using a used Resmed S9 (and hopefully finding a replacement as my backup). Another quiet machine.

Possibly because RERA is my primary problem, the Resprionics auto algorithm has not been as helpful to me as the Resmed one. I went in assuming it would be similar (both machines track RERA) but after a week and a half, I gave it up and switched to straight cpap mode on my loaner. I have vision problems and find the Resmed products way easier for reading the display.

For Resprionics, the hose port is on the top with a swivel. Less likely to tip the machine. I really like this feature. This machine also has a mask off alert, which may be useful. Most of all, if you want cheap battery backup in case of power failure or camping, the Resprionics has less costly solutions.

Neither of the products are handicap friendly if you have severe arthritis in your hands, your hands shake, fingertips lack feeling or if you can't bend easily. I also think if you have very large hands/fingers, you will have trouble with the Respironics humidifier. My brother is unable to get the basin out of the humidifier so I have to do it for him. I had to mark my brother's machine with a Sharpie because I could not see the line to fill. I'll have to do the same when I get my replacement Airsense for Her.

If you don't have the RERA issue (and the 560 does track them), then I think you would be happy with either machine. It's frustrating that you can't try both machines to make a decision. Get the heated hose feature on the humidifier for the Resprionics. It doesn't come standard.

Thanks for your response. I know, I wish I could try the A10...i am going to ask again so fingers crossed. I don't mind the PR System One except I find the screen hard to read unless I stand up, cant just see it from my bed....and its kinda bulky..takes up half my night stand, and I need room for other things too.
Good to hear some positive things about the A10. Lots of not so great things have been in threads.

Have a good day!Smile
