I want to get clarity related to pressure increase and behavior of Response as Standard and Soft in Autoset Mode and Autoset for Her Mode.

Can anyone give a detailed explanation about the pressure increase behavior. How to differentiate between response type as standard, soft and Autoset for Her in respect to pressure increase??

I believe the standard response is quicker to act and more aggressive in increasing pressure in response to events. The Soft mode responds more slowly. My wife has a For Her model and has been kept in Standard response mode. Not sure where the Soft response would be better. I recall one contributor here posted his OSCAR daily reports and you could see it was slow to respond which in his case was not helpful. I suggested he switch to Standard and it was quicker to respond to events and prevent more from happening. I will see if I can find that thread.

Edit: Here is a link to the thread. I believe it is the last or second last post on page 2 of this thread where I suggested switching the machine from Soft to Standard. You can look at the pressure response for charts posted in the Soft mode before this compared to in the Standard mode later. This mode only has an impact when the machine is in the AutoSet mode. Some of the early daily reports posted in page 1 was where the machine was in fixed pressure mode, so there would be no impact of the Soft setting. If you look to the left of the reports you can see (if there is enough showing) what mode the machine would be in.
