Second hand beast pump?

DC2 is due at in less than a week and I've been looking at breast-pumps.

For DD I had a Tommee Tippee manual pump, which I did use but it wasn't the best. Pumping took a lot of time and energy and with a 2yo to look after as well I'd like something a bit more efficient. Been looking at the Medela electic pump. It looks good but I'm shock at the price!

Seen some going fairly cheaply on EBay, but it feels 'wrong' some how. Would use a second hand pump or is it unhygienic?

Some pumps (e.g Ardo calypso) are closed systems so milk never gets near the motor part (unlike Medela pumps). So you could get a second hand closed pump and a new kit of attachments and it would be hygienic.

My local children's centre/Sure Start centre hires out breast pumps. Really cheap. Might be worth a call to see if yours do the same? I had one for quite a few months and it wasn't a problem.
