The mask I have been using for about 3 years is wearing out and I'm looking for a new one. Currently use a full-face mask - ResMed Mirage Quattro. Works pretty well. I'm looking to see if there's something better out there -lighter, less leakage, doesn't leave red marks on face, less mask movement, less noise.. I am mostly a slide sleeper but it's hard to accomplish with the mask. I've narrowed down my choices to the ResMed Airfit F20 for Her or the Fisher and Paykel Simplus. Any experience/recommendations with these masks? Thanks.

Do you have a pacemaker, implanted defibrillator or any other implanted electronic device? If so you cannot use the AirFit F20. It has magnets in the clips that can interfere with the operation of such devices with some very bad results.

I have used the Simplus many times and like it a lot. It is gentler on the face than you current Quattro, especially round the nose and tops of the cheeks.

Have you considered the Amara View? It has been very popular since its release and may address some of the problems you mention. Google it to get some idea what it's like.
