DME tech says the S9 has problems with the humidifier/software. Can anyone give us any input on this? I don't see many users listing the Intellipap as their machine, but I do see lots of people praising & using the S9. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
DME should have offered you a wider range of equipment (Resmed, Respironics, F & P, DeVilbiss etc etc).
Haven't heard any adverse reports on the S9.........it has a lot more comfort features than the IntelliPAP (Climate Hose, visible data)......it is also smaller than the intelliPAP. It is the very latest offering from ResMed.
Respionics equipment is also very good, as is F & P.
I don't like the idea of pushing one particular brand while 'finding fault' with, what is probably' the rolls royce of machine.
BTW, I use the DeVilbiss machine (we call it the Cube).........it is very quiet and easy to carry.........BUT mine is the basic model.
