Anyone using the Luna G3 apap?

Anyone using the Luna G3 apap?
After being diagnosed with moderate sleep apnea I was finally contacted by a DME that informed me they were shipping a Luna G3 apap machine with a nose mask.  Since my diagnosis I've been lurking on this forum and found a lot of helpful information including what to look for in a apap machine.  I informed the DME that I would prefer the ResMed Airsense 10 or 11 because of the OSCAR support and the reviews I found here.  They told me the backorder for those units are 3 to 4 months and it was my choice to wait or not.  

I've searched and cannot find many reviews on that model and was wondering if any members here are using that machine and can give any opinions. 3B Medical has great documentation and there is an Australian guy on YouTube that gives great demonstrations on setting the machine up.  The downside is it doesn't support OSCAR but it does have a proprietary software to use with an app. Thanks in advance for any replies.

Without Oscar there will not be much we will be able to help. Data from Oscar is used to give suggestions/options.

RE: Anyone using the Luna G3 apap?
A lot of people are working with their insurance when a back-order is encountered. There are machines available, but the Luna is cheaper, from China and your DME will make more money with it. My recommendation is to decline this equipment and ask for the Resmed Airsense 10/11 Autoset. Tell your DME that you will be calling your insurance to obtain permission to use an online provider who can fill the order faster. Normally, insurance only covers in-network reimbursement, but with the shortage, some insurers are covering machines from online suppliers like Supplier #1 and paying normal reimbursement. Anyway, call their bluff and see what happens. The BMC Luna is not a very impressive machine, and no data from Oscar.
