I actually bought this machine for my mother who was having trouble reading hte display on her old one and she loves it. The display is big enough to read for people whose eyes aren't quite what they used to be and it couldn't be easier to use. There is only one button on the SureStep so it is nearly impossible to get confused as to how to use it. It does take a few seconds longer than some machines but not enough to makea huge difference. The machine also allows the blood to be smeared onto the test strips which is also helpful to people getting a bit older. Overall my mother and I couldn't be happier with this machine.
