Help me buy a CPAP machine.

I have insurance, but I don't want them to get involved since they will want me to do a sleep study, which I did a couple of years ago with negative results. I think that was mostly because I barely slept. (Hospital bed with railings, wires all over my body, noisy nurses trundling past in the hall all night --- I don't know how they expect to get a good sample under those conditions...) For a few hundred bucks, I'll just spring for my own, thanks.
So, who out there has one? I am looking for very specific advice, down to specific models and websites where I can purchase one. Would this be something I could return if I didn't like?
Also, can someone explain what the nasal pillows are? Is there a general consensus on what percentage of people find relief using CPAPs? Any info at all would be appreciated.
