I look for things that aren't too pricey as well but I realized that spending a little more on something that won't break actually saves you money than buying more than one thing then having to replace it and go through that hassle. I've heard Medela is the best and that's what I plan to use, I think it costs too much as well but its worth it. I think by getting the Medela double electric pump I will be saving money, plus think of all the money you are already saving in formula. It's all in how you perceive it.
I'm assuming it is the same over there but in the UK all products are subject to a 12 month warranty. So if it breaks, you get a refund or replacement. You need to keep the receipt when you buy it. Just because something is cheaper, it should still work. I buy cheap and just get it replaced if there is a problem. If you don't have x amount to spare then it would be silly to spend it anyway.
