This is another great meter that I have tried. First of all, it is very easy to load the disc. Second, you get 10 test strips, instead of having to handle or reload little teeny strips. My other family members have also tried this, and they love it. Plus no coding is required, which is awesome. I find it best to buy the discs online, though, since I usually find it cheaper to purchase them over the internet than in a store. All in all, this is definitely one of the better meters out there. Great buy- you get what you pay for!
