    I use the One Touch Ultrasmart as well!!! I love it for the logbook and everything too. I use Ultramini's sometimes. I have used the freestyle flash in the past though.

    My son likes the freestyle mini. Really portable, and the strip light at the end means you can test in the pitch dark and still see what you're doing. Good for movies, concerts, sleepovers...

    You can take away Jacob's AccuCheck Aviva when you pry it from my cold dead fingers.

    I don't like OneTouch Meters I am a FreeStyle girl.
    I have the FreeStyle Lite (no codeing) with a cute puppy face plate :) in purple. Aviva read to low for my liking and I'll never touch a Ultra mini again :)

    oh, i also have a limegreen mini but i never use it.
    the ONE thing that i don't like about the ultrasmart is that if you're checking in the dark, there's no backlight or anything.

    I use the Precision Xtra, but I'm going to start using the One Touch UltraMini because it matches my pump, and I like how the strips are small and unlike the Precision, they don't come wrapped up in foil... I'll probably only use the Xtra as an extra, lol. Or to check ketones on sick days and when the ketostick says I'm moderate or large.. ;)

    Mody Jess Pony, why don't you like the ultra mini??

    And there's a backlight on the Ultra 2 as well, just not on the mini.

    I used the freestyle flash for years and loved it. I use the ultra link now because it talks to my pump but I don't like it much. Mostly cause it's HUGE and it has no backlight.

    I had a one touch ultra smart and my insurance stop paying for the strips. I really it the one touch ultra smart but now i use Accu-Check Aviva, and I like the different skins you can get for it. If you finger pricks hurt, try the accu-check multiclix it doesn't hurt as bad as the others!
