Comment:
Unfortunately, this glucometer did not work well for me. After acquiring results which were inaccurate between 30-40 points with this meter, I have decided to continue using a more reliable test kit. I can not chance getting a reading of 97, when my level is actually 137. (and yes, I did make sure that the readings were inaccurate with the True Test, via comparison with my physician's results, AND my secondary glucometer Contour Next EZ results). It may very well work for others, but my personal experience with this meter is unsatisfactory.

Comment:
Have used this meter 2 yrs. Egonomically the meter is easy to use. Running 2 tests immediately after one another shows less than a 6% variance. PC software provides great graphic reports so you can detect patterns based on days of week and time of day, % of readings above,at,below target ranges. Large degree of customization.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
This meter is accurate and precise, and the company has the studies to prove it. Meters cannot be tested against one another, they can all be withing +/- 15mg if your readings are under 75mg, or +/- 20% if your readings are over 75. They should be compared to a blood glucose lab test done by your doctor, drawn at the same time from the same arm. If the meter is within 20% of the lab test, it is accurate. This meter is great, I can see my average reading and print or email my log book to my MD using their software. (which is free)
