manual versus electric

Hello. I'm headed back to work in about three weeks, and currently the only pump I own is a manual Avent Isis pump. I used this pump with my second son while I was in college, because there was 1) no place to privately plug in an electric on campus. I've rented a Medela pump before, but it was HARSH on my breasts. I've heard recently from two other moms that the Avent isn't strong enough to keep your supply up. With my second son, I did loose my supply, but I attributed it to the fact that I didn't pump often enough because it was so hard to find a private place that wasn't a bathroom stall.
Now I'll have a private place to pump (my office), but I'm wondering if the Isis will be enough to keep my supply up. Should I invest in an electric pump? If so, what would you recommend? I'm looking for something that is primarily comfortable. I'm thinking about the WhisperWear - has anyone tried it?
