This meter comes with a a five year warrenty, which is quite long. I don't like the fact that it does not do averaging because looking for trends in testing sugar levels is the whole point of testing blood. Also, I don't like that the memory cannot be cleared. This may be a good introductory product, for someone newly diagnosed with diabetes, but it's not -- in my opinion -- designed for the long term.
