I know I sound like some TV pitchman when I say that I was skeptical about this device at first, because there are competing pill dispenser devices at four, five and even ten times the price of this that seem to do pretty much the same thing. I figured there must be some catch, or trade-off or some vital feature that this less expensive device didn't have. But I bought one anyway and lo and behold, for my non-commercial, private home application, it works great! I load it up once per week, and I'm done!
The set-up instructions could be clearer, but I followed them carefully and got it done in about 15 minutes or less, and there will be no reason to have to ever re-set it unless the doctor changes the regimen times, which is not likely. That it is battery powered is also good. The electricity shut off during a couple storms recently but this dispenser went right ahead and did what was needed, alerting and dispensing, one less thing, a very important thing, that I didn't have to worry about with the lights off.
I can't tell you how much this humble device has made life easier, less frustrating--and SAFER-- for myself and my friend. It does exactly what they say it does. I love it and highly recommend it.
(My gosh, I sure DO sound like some wild-eyed TV pitchman, but I guess it is that good ol' fashioned enthusiasm for this product that compelled me to bother to write this review, knowing that if it helps others like it helped me, the world will be a happier place. Classic win-win.)
The only real negative to report is that initial setup should probably be handled by someone fairly adept at figuring out new gadgets despite bad documentation. I nearly physically broke the device when the introductory documentation started off telling me to press a latch and open the lid. They had shipped it in a "locked" state, and the documentation doesn't mention how the lock/unlock mechanism works until much later on. One other thing that was poorly documented in the sales literature concerned the maximum number of days it can be pre-loaded for. It's good for 7 days if meds are dispensed four times a day, 14 days if meds are twice a day, and 28 days if they're once a day. (Three times a day is also possible, but slightly trickier to maintain than the other modes.)
Lastly, the pill trays are sort of narrow, and thus tipping over the unit to dispense the pills (and also reset/silence the alarm) may not completely empty the tray. One has to stick one's finger into the tray and "scoop" out any pills that are sticking in the tray--this can be a slight problem if one has thick fingers. I use my pinky to scrape out the pills.
