I have been using the AccuCheck Compact plus for years and the AccuCheck Compact before that. I know it's bigger, bulkier and heavier than lots of other meters but I particulaly like the drum system and the fact that the lancet is mounted on the meter. Taking a BG reading is a simple quick process and I have found good agreement with both my Dr's meters and the blood analysis. I bring my meter to the doctor's office and perform a test at the same time as the nurse draws blood and my BG is checked with their meter.

I tried the Aviva recently and was thinking. WHAT WERE THEY THINKING....
Was using a OneTouch Ultra2 and an Ultrasmart (to store my insulin requirements in)....
The last time i tried an AccuChek meter was the Compact..(original).. I liked it but it had a nasty problem where the trap door holding the strip barrel would pop and youd lose a strip on reload, and there are other ways you could lose a strip...

The things I liked about the Aviva was the strip size, speed of use, and MULTICLIX ROCKS!!!

The thumbs down was the LACK OF BACKLIGHTING on the display, no place to tag before/after a meal or a short health note, or enter your insulin dose (if using MDI)....

Accucheck, wheres a modern replacement for the Complete....

I have the 360 software. You need a USB port. The directions for it were creepy and I called them and said they need better install and operating instructions. I slugged my way through it and got it to work. Wish they would do their software for MAC too, I am a MAC guy. I do have to say though Roche is very good in listening to your concerns, answering questions and sending control solution. I have even gotten free strips at times from them. As far as the Accu Check Compact I love its operation and ease of use. I just wish it was a little smaller for pocket size. Then they would really have a meter.

I started using the Accucheck Compact, which seemed huge after the One Touch mini. I like the drums instead of sticking strips in. It sounds like some kind of robot--lady gave me the strangest look after I used one in the handicapped stall. RAHHHHHHH RAHHHHHHHH

New to using Accu-Check Compact Plus. Does anyone use the Accu-Check 360 software to track their results? Do you need the USB cable? My laptop has an IR port so can I configure that to work with the software? Any recommendations on free software that uses the laptop IR port?

Thanks for the link, Shannon. I couldn't agree with you more. Incidentally, my profile pic here was taken with my personal, rogue, black, dual core MacBook.
Have a great weekend.
