The issue I have with this pump I'd it's harder to clean than the Medela Freestyle attachments. The attachment that screws onto the bottle has this little rubber piece that covers very small holes that you have to take off just to clean the inside. Even then you can't get all the way in. This also makes it hard to dry and since I have to pump every 2 hours it basically never gets completely dry (and therefore leads to the tubing condensation.
I was also hoping the hospital grade pump would perform better than the Freestyle I usually use. My work has the Symphony to share as long as we own our own attachments. It has a different and a little better feeling and much quieter but I seem to get the same amount of milk as I would've using the other pump. Knowing that I probably would've saved my money and not bought this tubing.
It comes with the 24mm flange size that seems to be standard for all Medela all pump parts. The great part about the flange connector is that not only is the flange interchangeable (unlike some replacement parts I purchased at Wal-Mart), but they work with other types of medela pumps as well, including the Pump In Style Advanced (Which I have), as well as the hand pump (which was not the case for the flange connectors that I received with my Pump In Style Advanced).
My only complaint is really more of a slight annoyance, but does not affect functionality. The bottles included have volume measurement markings along the side that are simply indentations into the plastic, making the measurements extremely hard to see. However, to be fair, this was the case with the bottles that were provided with my other pump.
All in all this is a great value!
Most of the other Medela pumps have little nubs that you attach the tubing to, and that's how the pumping action works. The air is sucked through the tubes, into the shield, and there you go.
The Symphony is a "hospital grade" breast pump, but what's more, it's also safe for sharing, which is why some workplaces have them. Instead of having air sucked directly through the machine, it has these two pistons at the top, and those pistons, as they go up and down, are responsible for the suction. But to convert an up and down piston motion into sucking, you need a special attachment. THAT's what's specific to this kit vs the other medela kits that might include tubing and shields and bottles. If you don't have those attachments, you cannot connect to the symphony, end of story.
So this is a good kit. But you only need one like this since the Symphony specific parts do not get dirty and don't need to be washed really. Once you have this, if you want more shields and bottles, you can buy one of many other medela kits that don't include the extra symphony parts.
That said, this kit includes everything you need to pump with the symphony. You don't need anything else. But as an aside it does not include nipples for the bottles. Not that it needs to - just saying if you are buying this kit to grab and go somewhere and then want to give the bottles for feeding, you need nipples for the bottles or you need other bottles. Aside from that, this includes everything you need and you don't need anything more.
If you are buying this to pump at work, I would highly recommend the medela quick clean wipes, which lets you clean all the pumping parts without a sink - just a quick wipe down, so you can toss them back into your bag and be good to go. http://www.amazon.com/Quick-Clean-Breastpump-Accessory-Wipes/dp/B000CCXLNE

You can attach your own flange/pump set once you have the tubing included in this kit as it comes with the standard 24mm.
More importantly, the condensation on the tubes is an issue. When pumping at work, I am already pressed for time, I do not need to pump air in the tubes to clear condensation for another 10 minutes! I have never had this issue with the Pump in Style gear. Could be that the accessories for the Symphony are poorly engineered?
Very disappointing Medela.
I'm not a fan of the placement for the hose - seems to always get condensation in it during pumping and it's impossible to clean. I just hang them up to dry and hope for the best.
