Accu-Chek Aviva Meter

Meter in United States judged best in performance

Pros: I have found this an excellent choice of meter and it has been tested both in US and Europe as the most accurate meter available (in the United States) two years ago (I posted the study from ADA when it was published, don't have the URL to it at the moment)

Cons: As with all electronic devices, if you are choosing an insulin pump that "talks" to a meter, you are stuck with the one's your pump will "talk" to. Not all software will download this meter and it needs a specialty cable which one has to purchase in order to download it anywhere!

Overall: Fantastic meter Has survived a few years of my loving care (read abuse)
