I have the Freestyle Mini. I'm not sure what it's called in the USA. I's quick, easy to use and neat in it's pouch. I also test on my forearm, which I can often do without feeling it at all. The nerve sensors are quite far apart there.
I take the meter with me on medical visits and keep a careful watch on the average. I make sure it stays below 6 (108).
I'm trying to keep my use of medication right down. I read on "Blood Sugar 101" that Starlix can cause back pain, which is something that's been troubling me a lot lately.

I love my Freestyle Flash. It is my favorite. It don't need much blood; it lights both on the screen and so I can see to apply blood in the dark whether in public or in bed.
I have used it for 5 years. have tried several others including the new Freestyle Lite. I like the Lite but the Flash will stay my favorite.

I will be using the Freestyle meter integrated with my OmniPod starting next week, when I receive training on the 'Pod. I am actually currently using the Ascensia Breeze 2, which I like, but don't want to have to manually input my BG readings for bolus calculations. Before I switched to the Breeze 2, I used the Freestyle Flash, but the test strips were removed from my insurance formulary. Fortunately, this time around, my endo got a formulary exception for me on the grounds that the OmniPod is only compatible with the Freestyle strips.

I'm an early adopter of the Freestyle Flash, upgraded from my original Freestyle. I have, I think it's the second incarnation of the Precision Xtra but didn't like the expensive strips or the long read time. I have on order a free version of the Freestyle Lite to see how the technology's advanced.

I have used the Free Style glucometers since Sept, 2006. I find them to be very accurate. My approves very highly of them.

Hey all. We currently use the Freestyle mini for our son. We were using the Precision Xtra but did not like it very much. The Mini requires much less blood to get a reading. We don't use the lancing device that comes with the meter though because our son says it hurts too much, well we tried it and it does. Instead we use the Accu-chek Multiclick lancing device as it is almost painless. We are very satisfied with the Mini so far.

I use Freestyle Flash and occasionally the Cozmonitor on the back of my pump. Anyone else use the Cozmonitor regularly? Is it your main meter?
