Omnipod vs. Medtronic?

Asking for my girlfriend, who will be checking and possibly replying to this post:
I'm looking into starting on an insulin pump and I'm pretty sure I've narrowed it down to the Omnipod and the Medtronic Minimed. Looking for any first hand experience with either. I'm also open to any other suggestions to other pumps to consider as well as which ones to avoid.

I did use the Minimed maybe about 10 years ago. But when I was put on the pump, it wasn't long after I was first diagnosed so it didn't really work out. So I am somewhat familiar with that device in particular. I'm also considering the Omipod because I do like the idea of not having to worry about the tube coming loose and getting caught on everything.
