This is all you need
Nice little glucometer. I have only used it two days but its perfect for a quick check of sugar results in five seconds. Uses small drop of blood. Came with everything needed to get started. Monitoring blood sugars. Would definitely recommend. The price is right. You don't need any bells or whistles when this gets the job done. I love that itscso small and not cumbersome likevsomevother models. I even accidentally droppedbit on the floor a couple times and nothing broke. Still works.

I had to watch a few videos on YouTube to figure out how to use this. I did figure it out. I also found videos on YouTube about how to control blood sugar through diet so with the help of my dietician I have changed my diet. Everyone is different so you just have to figure out what is best for you as far as an eating plan. I believe our health care system in this country is sad so I just research things on my own and do whatever works to make me feel better

Switched the wife from her more expensive tester. We checked the readings against her other unit several times. Not off by more than 2%. Rounding error. No big deal. It's been working great. My only criticism is the case sucks.

Low life batteries
I purchased this in order to monitor my ketogenic nutrition program. It works as expected but the batteries it cane with are junk. They are in need of replacing and I've only tested my levels twice.

My mother is a diabetic, and her Contour Meter was a few years old. So I decided to buy her one from AlumiGogo. I was surprised at how cheap this meter was, as at my local drug store, this item was selling in the $30 range. I was concerned that it might be a bootlegged product or some off brand being sold as a Contour. But when it arrived, it was the real deal. We tested it and compared it to the meter she already had...and the point range of both meters was a three point difference. Everything works like it should, and I have no complaints. In fact, I consider myself lucky for getting such a good deal.

Ok for the price
When compared with One touch ultra-2, this meter uses almost half the blood sample, that's it.
The ultra-2 has the very nice option of logging pre-defined comments with the test results (e.g. illness, vacation etc) which tells somewhat about the results.
The carrying case for Contour is poor quality and design and makes testing difficult. The meter has to be removed from the case were you to use the middle or next finger for testing.
Its ok for the price but if you can afford, go for the Ultra-2.

Contour Blood Monitor
Compared the new contour to the old one relative to the readings. Readings matched pretty close. We are very happy with Contour and the way it functions. The item was shipped quickly and as advertised.

Husband uses the same system. reliable readings, compared to X-brand that Kaiser hands out to my sister, which I tried several times.

Despite following instructions exactly, this monitoring system gave an inconclusive result with almost every reading. Out of 10 test strips, only one worked. Not sure if it is a problem with the unit or the strips themselves, but I wouldn't recommend this.

Not as advertised - Received a "Not for Resale" version with no lancets or sample test strips. Unless. Have initiated return/refund process. Very disappointed.
