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 meter hit 34%. (The best performers hit 90% of machines were accurate to within 5%).
I have used following glucose meters:
1. One Touch Ultra
2. One Touch Ultra 2
3. Bayer’s Contour
Here is my experience with all three.
One Touch Ultra.
Takes too much blood. Strip errors or not sufficient blood is common.
One Touch Ultra 2.
1. It is designed by a some “Moron” trying to be artistic:
a. It is very slow.
b. Dark (smoky screen) is hard to read particularly for older people.
c. Too many strip errors – “Strip Error or Insufficient Blood.”
d. Takes too big a sample of blood.
e. DO NOT BUY.
1. It is the best meter I have ever used.
2. It takes the smallest blood sample.
3. It has a bright screen and is fast.
4. Best of all:
a. It beeps when you insert the strip, telling you that the strip is properly seated.
b. It’s blood suction is very fast and efficient.
c. It beeps to confirm proper blood suction.
d. NEVER HAD A SINGLE PROBLEM.

although a vial which have 10 testing strips is included, you`ll probably need an extra vial of testing strips.
this meter uses so much more blood then the other and if you do not get a big enough drop of blood on the strip you have to use another strip WHAT A WASTE
the other system I was using you just had to add more blood
I am not happy with this system at all
Glucometers are required to give readings within plus or minus 15 mg/dl or 15%, whichever is greater most (but not all) of the time, an accuracy comparable to hitting the side of a barn from eight feet away. The customer rep did at least offer to send me their special control solution (mixed by a crack team of Nobel chemists, no doubt), but not until *after* I had agreed to tell him whether my readings were high or low and by how much.
I like the meter very much (four or five stars worth), but getting an obviously defective one replaced is something else again. I am still diet-control and test mainly to keep my NP off my back, but I pity anyone who really needs to test and who gets one of these that is defective. Caveat Emptor.
This meter runs close to the Doctors tests with a 30 day average of 113, and a 14 day of 109. The A1C test taken 12-12-2012 came back at 103 and 5.6 while the Ultra2 gave me a reading just before I left for the doctor of 107. The other meter 14 and 30 day averages for the same period was 121 and 122. So if I go by their readings I should continue to take medicine even though the tests done at the doctors and the Ultra2 say I do not have to.
