It is very easy to use.
Tila Kat
I was thrilled because it seemed to work properly but after a week this one is now garbage and the readings are way off.

Test strips for this product are as expensive as similar product.

I've been diabetic for over 10 years and used a variety of glucometers. This has been the best and easiest to use right out of the box. It requires a pindrop sample and gives an accurate result in only 5 seconds.

The display is quite large for those with eyesight difficulties. It comes with a carrying case to hold the meter, a lancet, and a vial of test strips. You don't even have to take the meter out of the case to use it...just unzip the case and pop in a test strip!

It's easy to track pre-and post-meal readings using the up/down arrow and "M" button to mark each result. It can even be set to remind you to re-test post-meal in 2.5 hours!

The meter can be connected to a PC for downloading data (my doctor does this for me to analyze my readings).

It only comes with a few test strips (this is how all glucometers are packaged), so be sure to get extras. If your insurance doens't cover the strips, LOOK AROUND AT AMAZON for boxes of strips. They can be found for almost 50% of the cost at your local Wal-Mart.

I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at the end of January 2012. I got this meter from my pharmacist who highly recommended it.

Despite cutting my carbs/sugar to 20 grams or less per day, my blood glucose readings were all over the place so I thought my meter was a dud.

The Metformin medication I was prescribed caused gastric distress so my physician put me on a clear liquid diet to clear it up. During the clear liquid diet which consisted of water, fat free, msg free chicken broth and sugar free jello, I had to go back in for an additional lab. I had been on the clear liquid diet for over a day and a half and yet my blood glucose readings would frequently shoot up to almost 200!

When I went to the lab to have the test done, I asked them if they could test my blood glucose as well and at the same time, I would use my meter to test.

I honestly thought the result would be that my meter was a lemon. I tested on my Bayer Contour using the same blood sample as the lab used. My meter reading said 183 and the lab test was 186. The head of the lab said that is very accurate for a home meter.

It ended up my blood glucose was so high because of a substance called "Maltodextrin" which was in the sugar free jello I was ingesting. Once I cut out all products with maltodextrin in them from my diet, my blood glucose quickly normalized and has been in the normal range ever since.

Things you should know about using this meter:

1. Wash your hands prior to handling your strips - using alcohol on the finger you will be poking to do your test is not enough.

The Ascensia(tm) Contour Blood Glucose Monitoring system has proven not as accurate as I would have expected. The unit came with 10 FREE Strips and I purchased an additional 100 strips. The first thing I did was the chemical strip test to determine its stability - I used 3 Strips and the output was within a few numbers . After getting out the Lancet I decided to test myself. My First reading was 91 (very good). I then proceeded to test another finger (just out of curiosity); and the reading was 110 (OH DEAR).. I proceeded to poke and bleed myself an additional 10 times and the readings went from 85 to 125... THE AVERAGE READING BEING 93 (which I assume is my true reading). I spoke with my doctor, he told me this is a known issue with the Ascensia(tm); The method used to draw blood is very critical. You cannot "MILK" your finger, this causes additional platelets to form screwing up the readings. Especially if you wait over 5 seconds before donating the sample to the STRIP.

I have been using this meter for at least three months now; quite frequent usage at that. While I certainly have not had the opportunity to test it over a long period, my experiences so far have all been quite positive.

This meter does have many very nice features; far more than I actually need, but it is nice to know they are there if I want them. Absolutely no coding is required and the results of each test are as advertized...within five seconds. The meter does have a 480 test result memory, which to be honest I don't use as I prefer to track on a written chart, and it does give you a 14 day average which I do use.

I have tested this meter against three others and the results are about the same. There are so many variables at any given time; you never really get an absolute reading on any monitor that I know of. Yes, I have had some minor fluctuations from time to time but nothing to ever get overly excited about.

I suppose the main attraction to this particular unit for me is the ease of use. It is extremely simple; simple to the point that you could almost use if for the first time without even reading the directions...something I am prone to do with putting together BBQ grills, but hesitate doing so with an instrument such as this, so I read them, understood them and was rewarded with knowing that I really did not have to read them if I had chosen not to; childish, I know, but I enjoyed it anyway. It is also extremely fast. I am not overly fond of the constant monitoring but you have to do what you have to do and it is nice to be able to the quick about it.

On the down side, the test strips for this machine are sort of on the high end so you had better check first with your insurance company to see if they will cover...
