Medela Lactina?

Any thoughts on this pump? Or, maybe, do you know where I can get a refurbished Symphony? I can get a Lactina refurb for a decent price, but not the Symphony.

Quick background. I'm expecting a late pre-term baby, and I have always had problems with just barely having enough supply. #3 was diagnosed FTT, the others just barely didn't meet criteria for the diagnosis. I have always has a PISA, and could never get any milk out of it at all. Well, enough to cover the bottom of the little collection things, but just barely. I'm a terrible pumper. I know from experience that late pre-term babies have difficulty breastfeeding, so I really need a pump that will actually work for me.

Tricare will not cover a pump unless the baby is actually in the NICU, and when it goes home the pump goes back to the NICU. I prefer not to rent cause I'm a scatterbrain and will forgot to return it.

I did all the stuff to increase supply BTW, so I really specifically want reviews on pumps right now. TIA!
