I use this pump to pump mostly at home, every once in a while at work (in a single, private bathroom). I use it mostly once a day, sometimes two times. I have really like it, and haven't had a single problem with it. It does not seem too loud to me - you can hear it, but it never seems distracting. I find the pieces easy to clean - we wash them with the dishes with hot soapy water. It pumps plenty of breastmilk - very efficient, doesn't hurt (once you are used to it), comfortable to use, etc. I do only one side at a time because it was too much to manage holding both at the same time. I also breastfeed and use this to provide him milk when I am away, so I can't speak to how good this pump is if you are providing milk exclusively by pumping. In short, for daily, but not intense use, this has worked really well for us for the last six months. I would recommend it to someone in a similar situation.
