I've been using the new WalMart meter and I am very happy. To be honest I think it is more accurate than my One Touch. Or maybe when I get that WTF reading It doesn't bother me as much to retest.
I read something where one of the meter companies was trying to explain why strips cost so much(oh..come to find out they are made with Gold...give me a break). I think that is all smoke and mears. Has meter technology really change in the last 10-15 years to still justify 1.00 test strips. I don't think so.
