Resmed Benefits I prefer so far...
Waaaay more customizeable ramp options.
Waaaay more information reported in Sleepyhead?
Waaaay more 'on screen' info if you make the clinical menu changes
Water Storage - omfg.. how much easier to clean, use is the water chamber over the F&P one. Stupid plastic cross-braces get in the way etc on the F&P. Single most important aspect of the Resmed humidifer IMHO over the F&P.
Obviously doesn't really matter, but i prefer the long rectangle shape verses the larger bulkier looking F&P box shaped unit.
Dislikes \ gripes \ differences?
Noise levels - although 'on paper' its meant to be less noisy, the chamber and input filter do seem to 'seal' less reliably than the top mounted F&P champer with separate 'lid' - so if sometimes need some adjustment, press the tab etc to ensure some sucking noises are reduced.
SD Card, yes its fine.. and with a wifi card will be great, but out of the box - the F&P icon with a direct USB is far easier to just plug into a PC. Obviously not a big deal.
Aggressiveness of the algorithm etc. This is hard to describe, but the Resmed definitely seems more 'aggressive' or brutal over the F&Ps. Its not a question of ramp, pressure or EPR settings (I dont think) - airflow seems 'softer \ smoother' in the F&P - again hard to put into words- more of a feeling - but even at my high pressure I dont really mind it.
So ... the Resmed is a good $500 or more ontop of the F&P- and I think for its simplisticness of cleaning the water chamber (I have huge hands), the greater reporting detail, more customisable\easier to tune EPR\ramp settings - pretty sure I will go with purchasing the Resmed 10 after my 4 week trial ... however.. before I purchase a unit ... wondering if I should have another sleep trial or other review before a purchase - as it will be nearly 10 months since my assesment. Again, I am purchasing an Auto (but set to fixed as per script) - this can be modified down the track if required.
I have very little attachment storage here, but I have put up an imgur album of Sleepyhead screenshots via this link. SleepyHead F&P vs Resmed - comparison results
I have posted the album link as posting the individual pics would be quite large..
