This is just my 2nd system using CPAP; the first was an Aloha. I'm a side/stomach sleeper and the Aloha kept getting pushed off/out of my nose. I also prefer top tube routing as opposed to front of face. So with the Aloha it was always making sure I was moving the tube w/my hands whenever I rolled over, after the top mount velcro wore out. The velcro lasted about 4 months or so.
The DreamWear is much more comfortable. Again, I can only compare it to the Aloha and I didn't dislike the Aloha. Used it for almost 2 years. The DreamWear does have a few things you should know about though. First, it comes in 3 sizes, S, M, L. That's not really stated anywhere when ordering and after 2 nights with the medium it was obvious I needed the large. Bestcpapprice.com sent me a large frame no problem but I know I have a larger head and if I was given the option upon ordering I would have selected large to begin with. This didn't even occur to me because the Aloha is totally self adjusting but the DreamWear is only tension adjusting, not size adjusting. I do wish the back elastic strap on the DreamWear was a bit lower to better grip. It can scoot up the back or your head during the night but the mask has yet to come off or disengage.
The DreamWear system is not as quiet as the Aloha but it doesn't bother me or my wife.
The really nice and comfortable part of the DreamWear cushion is that it's kind of a triangular cup of very soft silicone or something that fits under your nose, not in it. That's VERY comfortable. But.. when you're going to sleep each inhale makes a small silicone flap bounce against your nostril giving me the sensation, and I hate to be graphic but, like I've got runny snot on the end of my nose and I'm trying to breathe it back in. Every night I'll pop the cushion off just to make sure my nose really is dry, and it is, and then I'll fall asleep and once you're asleep this is not an issue at all.
I would highly recommend this system over the Aloha or any system that has a cushion go into your nostril. I'm about month into the DreamWear and like it so far.
