I've used a variety of meters over the years. The first few were some no-name brands I got because I didn't want to sink a lot of money into this new diagnosis just yet. They were awkward, ugly, gave weird results. I had to enter a code with each new can of strips. One I had to calibrate. I finally went to my pharmacist (non-big-box) and talked to him. He gave me a TRUEresult which I used for several years basically because the strips were so cheap. Then they came out with the True2Go meter that fit right on top the test strip can and I was happy. But I wanted the ability to track it more other than taking it from the meter and re-writing the data somewhere. After doing a lot of researching, I got the Bayer Contour Next USB. I love this thing. Small, plugs right into my computer, test strips aren't that expensive. Loved it so much I got two: one for my pack and one for my desk. My pharmacy gives me a discount on the strips because I pay cash (and they like me).
