Another solid product from LifeScan. This isn't the model with the most bells and whistles, but it does what is supposed to do and is not difficult to use. This machine allows testing from a couple of different sites so you can give the fingertips time to heal once in a while. There is also a feature that allows you to track your blood sugars. The screen is large and easy to read which is nice for those of us that have gotten a little bit older. The test strips do need to be coded. This is not a big deal though and most of us are very used to doing this already.
