Seriously, its worth the trouble, for those considering it but not yet trying it out.

I find it reads a little lower than the strips do, with the same meter, or with other meters, but it gives a great overall picture of whats going on. Some people find it reads the same as their other meters, or higher. each person is individual and has a variety of responses. Don't let me put you off, at all.

Its wonderful to be able to scan whenever you want or need to, if you are feeling a bit "off" then it gives a clue, and followup with a fingerprick test is then confirmation (or not). Love it.
