My ds uses one touch meters. We have tried the freestyle lite and loved the light on the meter. We have also tried the Accuheck but the strips see to come in a larger container than one touch. My son likes things that can go in his pockets when he is out....so he prefers a one touch mini and delica poker for those times. I like that one touch strips work with all their meters. Even though I hate the ultralink meter with no back light - my son prefers to use it because he doesn't have to enter his bg so that is what he uses at school and home. FYI - While one touch does have coding - it is the same code for all strips now so that is not an issue.
