Does anyone else use the newer USB meter? What do you think of it?

I have only had one for a couple months and I really like that I can convert my logs and trends into pdf files, and email them to my docs ahead of time or print them out..

WHat are teh pros and cons that you see in this meter versus a standard meter

I love the usb meter I've been using it for about a month and a half. It's actually helped me get some things set straight. Like a couple of nights I checked my blood every hour, then I used the usb meters comp program and it laid the info out in a chart, My doc was able to look at that and make a descision about what to sdo. My blood readings have leveled out since then.

Take them with you , just like your meds list . My Ins don't wants us the have them …
The only cons is it plug & play …

I've been thinking about the Bayer USB meter. Which test strips does it use?

There are different ones - you pick but you will have to pay out of pocket .

If you sign up at Bayer you can get a coupon via snail mail- my USB meter was free with teh coupon, and teh insurance covers a good portion of my strips. They were cheaper than the Precision Xtra ones that I was getting, and having trouble finding.. thats a big part of teh reason I switched… PLus I get coupons from Bayer for $20 bucks off a box of 100 strips. It helps a lot- I go through 2 boxes a month.
