I'm still kind of new to the whole diabetes thing. I was diagnosed with type 2 in Oct 2012 and I've been through three meters already. This one is my favorite overall. I love how it gives you an average reading, I used to test three times a day and doing it at night it can be really hard to see. This is the only meter that I know of with the backlight that helps you see. I also like how it stores the readings so you can go back and compare or keep a log for the next follow-up appt. The whole sticking myself thing took a while to get used to. For each reading I had to mentally prepare myself because if I didn't I would have a panic attack. The Delica lancing device can be adjusted so that you're not sticking too deep but are still able to get enough blood for your reading without it hurting too much. They don't give you many test strips in the kit and to buy them with no insurance it's just too expensive. You can buy them brand new and sealed on eBay if u can't afford to buy in the stores. I haven't really had too many errors with using the meter or the test strips. Maybe only a couple of times from the test strip sitting in the meter for too long while I'm trying to get blood. Compared to my meter now, TrueResult, I wish I could go back to using my One Touch but it's too expensive to replenish the supplies I need.
