I got this meter from my doctor, so it was essentially chosen for me. That aside, I was expecting this difficult to use device with a poorly written instruction manual. My prior experience with glucose meters was limited to one my father had, and setting it up was quite the ordeal, so I was pleasantly surprised that getting the Freestyle Lite meter operational was a quick two minute process.

Also, the lancets for it are very thin and really don't hurt much at all, particularly if you use alternate site testing. The lancing device is very small and discrete, unlike the usual pen-shaped lancing devices.

The included case is compact and has room for a good supply of lancets, a bottle of test trips, the lancing device, the control solution and the meter, of course, so it is very good for taking with you to the office, travel and so on.

The meter itself is very solid and is well built, so I don't expect to have any problems with it any time soon. If I had to buy a meter, this would definitely be it.

My son was recently diagnosed with diabetes. It was a nightmare finding a meter that worked. The hospital gave us a One Touch Verio IQ. Every 3rd strip failed. The nurses said that they're very sensitive to being touched. They're so small that it's impossible not to touch them. Also, they're really hard to get out of the little container. Meters are fairly inexpensive on Amazon (very expensive in a pharmacy) but the strips cost a fortune. The Verio had really expensive strips and as I say, many of them wouldn't work. Next we got a Bayer Contour USB. This worked for awhile then started giving errors saying that we were using the wrong kind of strips. We weren't. Bayer sent us another one and the strips also failed frequently. Part of the problem is that my son has sweaty hands and they'd get even sweatier when he was nervous about sticking himself. Next we bought an Accucheck compacs plus and we were sure we had the answer since it uses a drum of test strips. Nope. The device is so stupidly designed that the strip ejects out only about 1/4 inch beyond the body of the clunky device so you can't see where you're trying to get the blood. Next we tried the True Test meter. This has very inexpensive strips and it worked better than all the others but needed quite a bit of blood. At least it was somewhat workable but still frustrating. Finally we found the Freestyle. It's absolutely incredible how little blood you need for this and how easy it is to use. We were really getting scared because nothing would work reliably and my son was sticking himself 3 times just to do one test and going through so many strips. The Freestyle saved us. It's a wonderful device. Thank goodness!

While I'm at writing, the whole issue of the lancet device was difficult too.

I love love love this meter. It is small and easy to hold. The lancing device is small and easy to use. I test on palm of my hand and there is little or no pain.

When you hold the test strip to the blood, it beeps to tell you it has enough and this has kept me from having to relance multiple times like I did with the Accu-Chek Compact. See my review of that one. ACCU-CHEK Compact Plus Meter Kit

I have arthritis in my hands and the Accu-Chek is hard to hold and hard to use. Opening the vial of Accu-Chek test strips is nearly impossible. In contrast, the Freestyle Lite strips are a breeze to open and use.

This requires very little blood. Test results are very fast.

The carrying case is small: 4.5" by 3.5" by 1.75". I tuck a pencil into the outside pocket. My log is in the inside pocket.

Conclusion: I don't dread testing any more.

YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS BEFORE YOU BUY
The chances you get an inaccurate unit are HIGH, and there is a lot of variation between units. What percentage of a particular blood glucose meter made are accurate? (See photo for the actual data from the referenced journal.)
A Sep 2012 Journal of Diabetes Science and Technology article evaluated most of the common home monitors in preparation for trying to update the standard of measurement from 20% error to 15% error acceptable for these units. (Right now your glucose could be 200 and you can get a reading of 240 as accurate.) You are going to poke yourself and draw blood. You want that reading to be accurate, right? OK - so when you look at how many of the units tested (out of a large sample) were accurate to within 5% of the actual blood glucose level - the percent of machines that were accurate might be a useful bit of information before you buy? Think of this as "If I buy this machine, what's my chance of getting one that is accurate?" This unit hit 86%. That's your chance of getting a good glucose meter with this manufacturer and model. (The best performers hit 90% of machines were accurate to within 5%).

My doctor gave me this meter, and because of that I decided to give it a better try than the free ones I had gotten in the mail from other companies. I tried them all, and I will stay with this one! I also recommend it to my family and friends. There is little, or no pain when I stick my finger, and the amount of blood needed is small compared to the need of the other meters I have. The only problem I have had, is when trying to be thrifty, I tried to use a strip twice (They have a test site on each side, I guess for right and left handed people, so I thought I'd try to save money!), and got the error message. I installed a new strip, and had a good reading.
It is real easy to read with the back light, quick, and has a great memory for past reading when I forget to write them down, or forget my pen at work.
