Having just recently been diagnosed as Type II, the first thing I knew to do was seek out a glucose meter I would use and keep on using. I first sent away for an older model that was free but required the use of key-coding chips and whatnot, and testing quickly became something akin to a kid with a chemistry set-- strips, codes, lancets, etc. What I love about the Accu-Check is the way it's all contained into one unit.

Having the strips preloaded in a drum is wonderful-- you don't have to fumble getting them out of a vial or avoid touching either the electrode end or the blood uptake end. This also means they have a longer shelf life than just the "use within 3 months of opening" rule of regular strips. I imagine this would especially be a boon to anyone with arthritis in their hands or who have limited range of motion in their fingers-- press the lil' button and it spits out a strip. Done.

The lancing device, which is removable or can be used still attached to the meter itself, really DOESN'T hurt much at all compared to the one I got w/my free meter, so when they say it's less painful, they're serious. Apparently it has something to do with vibration-- other lancets hit the skin and wiggle which causes more pain, whereas the Accu-Chek doens't-- in and out and that's it. The device also works like a ballpoint pen: click to load, click to fire the lancet, click again to eject the needle. Again, no doubt a boon to people with arthritis who may not have the fine motor control to pull a teeny lil' lancet out of the device.

I just started using the Compact Plus a few weeks ago, and I absolutely love it. Nothing beats Accu-Chek products to begin with, in my opinion. The ability to have the lancet device, pre-loaded test strips, and the BG meter all in one system is just unbeatable. Middle of the night testing is a breeze now (even while half-asleep). No need to fumble for test strips or grab the lancet device. It is all right there, and all in one hand. I have found the meter to be very accurate, and comparable to the Aviva (which I believe to be the most accurate meter on the market). The screen is very easy to read(however, read note below). As another poster said, you can recall a 7 day, 14 day, and a 30 day BG average (press M once to turn the meter on, then hold M and S together to get a 7 day average hold them down again for a 14 day average and so on). I have not ordered the USB cord yet, but it does have the ability to download the last 500 readings .Which is great. I very much wanted to give this system a 5 star rating, but I also wanted the rating to be completely honest. There are a few negatives that I do think are important to note. The bright screen is great inside, but is a bit hard to read outside. The meter does make sound when pulling out a test strip (not too loud, but it may bother those who want an ultra quiet meter), and it does require a bit more blood then the Aviva. It would be nice if the drums held more then 17 strips too(I test on average 10 times or so a day). The pros 100% outweigh these few negatives. As an active, busy Type 1 diabetic I can't say enough about this meter. It is a great device, bravo Accu-Chek.

I had been using the older Accu-chek compact plus, but recently replaced it with this revised version. So far no regrets - it's the same terrific meter I've grown accustomed to, just in some new packaging.

Among the many features I like:

- Painless lancet...notably better than most of the competitors thanks to the thinner lancets and the teflon coating
- Highly accurate...agrees exactly with my doctor's unit and with the lab
- Convenient and easy to use, one piece design
- Large, legible display
- Drum design holds supplies for 17 tests so there's less to carry around or fumble with
- Good memory functions built-in
- Long battery last one was three years old and I never once needed to replace the batteries with daily testing

Something not mentioned on the Amazon product description is the wonderful interface to the Accu-chek software package called SmartPix, which you can order from the manufacturer. This software talks to the meter using an IR (infrared) signal like your TV remote control, and it lets you create all sorts of useful data on your PC. The product generates all sorts of charts and graphs, which you can share with your doctor to give him a much more detailed view of how you've been doing. I'm a big believer in data collection on the PC, and I routinely monitor blood pressure, exercise (via my pedometer) and blood sugar levels this way.

About the only complaint I have is that the supplies for this meter are somewhat hard to find locally, and when I can find them, they tend to be 2-3 times as expensive. I just order through Amazon way in advance and that seems to work for me. I also liked the older style case better, but luckily the meter fits in my old case.
