Choosing a new pump?

Hi - I used to be on this board a lot 5 years ago as an EPer with my dd. We are just about to have a new one and I'll be EPing again due to chronic pain issues of mine. (I did it for a year last time, and hope to this time as well). I used to have the Medela PIS, but the outside got mildew-y so my hubby insists we get a new pump. I do remember that one tugging and pulling so much that I bled, although the olive oil and varying sheild sizes were helpful. So, these are the four I'm considering - any support for or against these? I will need to be hands free and would prefer to be portable so I can chase my dd. All and any advice would be appreciated! Thank you so much!
* Dr. Brown's/Simplisse Double Electric (I really like that so many reviews on Amazon & BabiesRUs say it is gentle, but I'm concerned about being able to get parts)
* Lansinoh Affinity (may be gentler? Certainly cheaper)
* Medela PISA (what I am used to, although I had an older model)
* Medela Freestyle (expensive, but still cheaper per month than renting since I hope to go at least a year)
