RE: Tried the F20. Which Mask Next?
I've tried a bunch of different masks -- pillow, nasal, and full face. I've tried F20 (memory foam), N20, Wisp, P30i, and I'm not sure what else.

I didn't care for the F20 but do like the F30. It is the mask I use most often.

Sometimes I will use a P10. That works for a while until I start getting mouth leaks. Then it's back to the F30. Using the F30 for a while seems to help train me to keep my mouth closed so I can use the P10 again for a while. But I use the F30 probably 90% of the time. I've kept the N20 as a backup but haven't used it in a year.

There are some leaks but not enough to be a problem. 7-day average leak was 5 l/m. There may be a few minutes with large leaks each night, causing by the mask getting skewed after rolling over. I seem to adjust the mask in my sleep when that happens.
The current version of OSCAR is 1.2.0.  We recommend upgrading from any earlier version.
