Question ?Brands of insulin syringes, and source?

I'm new to all this stuff, and need to buy 100u insulin syringes, 5/16" needle, 31 gauge, 1cc. I started looking online, and wonder about all the different brands. Generally, you get what you pay for....right? Or not right? Names like comfort and ease sure sound good....lol.....
I need them probably by Saturday---any thoughts?
Thanks!

I like Walmart's ReliOn brand, ... $12.58 / 100 and they work great for us! We use the 29 gauge, 1/2" syringes.




Syringes
ReliOn® offers three needle gauge options: 29 gauge, 30 gauge and 31 gauge.

I like the Walmart brand for seeing the 1/2 unit markers the best. BD second. I bought some other brand online and they are impossible to see. It uses circles around the entire syringe for each half unit

The Wal Mart ones are really good - I wouldn't overpay for syringes.
