Winner on Accuracy and Price
Did a quick comparison with my old meter sampling large single blood drops for a few days. The average difference was about 3.5 on each set and the averages for the test only differed by about 2.6. My decade or so of experience tells me readings even on a single meter vary by those amounts in tests on separate blood drops (checking meter consistency). Conclusion is same accuracy for about one third the cost, a winner. The worst problem I have found is that the strip is slightly harder to insert into the channel on the meter.

Not good enough
I switched over to these new test strips for the very low price. We are tired of getting ripped off by the drug companies gouging us for up to 50 cents per strip and Walmart has come up with an alternative. Unfortunately these have too many flaws to be viable at this time. First like all strip changes you have to buy a new meter. The new meter is a bit more bulky than my old Relion meter. It also has No audio prompts and No back light to see your results in dim light. Come on Walmart would it have been that hard to build that in? Those are just basics that Every meter should have and my old Ultra Relion meter had. The other big flaw is I continue to get too frequent E13 errors which indicate not enough blood on the strip. Even though I am putting a large dose of blood on. I've found the way around this is to hold the finger with blood drop on the strip until the results are calculated. Walmart needs to work with the producer of this meter and strips to resolve these basic problems. It's a great price but I cannot recommend this meter or strips until these basic flaws are fixed.

About a month ago I saw a Relion Prime glucometer at WM for a low price so I purchased it with a vial of Relion Prime test strips. I tested it against my One Touch Ultra 2 over 12 tests and found that both meters, using their respective strips, gave me exactly the same results +/- 3mg/Dl. I test 5 times a day. Cost: $9 Relion Prime 50ct, $68 One Touch 50ct. I switched immediately. I am also recommending this meter to my Diabetic Educator as a low cost alternative. This is important as I understand that medicare is cutting the test strips unless you are on insulin. Every Cookbook, every book about diabetes says "test your blood sugars and test them often!" These test strips give me back control so that I know when to eat and when to fast throughout the day. Thank You, coyboy

Economical Meter & Strips for No Insurance

My sister was recently diagnosed pre-diabetic. She is not covered under the Diabetes Mandate nor will her insurance cover it unless she was Type 2 (plus she earns a modest salary). She needs to monitor her blood glucose levels because of the way her pre-diabetes affects her acid reflux. When I found a meter and strips she could afford, she was ecstatic. I ordered it for her and she has been happily using it ever since. This diabetes supply is perfect for working class individuals.

Great value

The price of name brand glucose test strips makes it really hard to monitor blood sugar regularly. These test strips [as well as monitor] are priced so reasonably, I can test 4 times a day as I am told to and not have to think about spending a fortune on the other ones. I will not go back to the more expensive test strips.

Can't tell if it's correct without solution

These were by far the best deal on test strips. This is my first foray into glucose testing, so no comparisons, but they seem to work fine, and require very little blood to work. That said, accuracy is vital to saying if this is a good deal or not, and I have no idea if they're accurate, since you can't buy the testing solution online or in the stores for this meter. You HAVE to go to the Relion website, then give them ALL your personal info, before they will ship it to you free. (Just why do they need my phone and email info, to ship me a product by mail? Can they send it to me via email, or phone?) I really resent having this solution held hostage until I divulge my personal info to them, for what unknown purpose. Medical info should be kept private, and I shouldn't have to tell anyone my medical history, or private contact info to make sure a product I PURCHASED works properly. They should make the solution available anywhere the product is sold, rather than holding it hostage. Bad form Relion. Bad form.

1. The ReliOn test strips require much more blood than test strips from other meters.
by GeorgeK1
2. Ensure that when you poke your finger to get a sample of blood that there is enough blood to flow the whole length of the Prime test strip sampler. I have used these Prime test strips for months with no problems at all.
by tony8gj
3. YOU MUST USE A CERTAIN VOLUME OF BLOOD FOR THIS DEVICE - TRY USING A SLIGHTLY BIGGER DROP OF BLOOD - I TRY TO GET A DROP ABOUT A MM IN DIAMETER - THEN YOU TOUCH THE STRIP TO THE EDGE OF THE DROP ON YOUR FINGER - DO NOT SMEAR THE BLOOD OR THE METER WILL BE UNHAPPY.
by INMAKK
4. You need a thick drop of blood and let the strip suck up the amount of blood it needs.
by BOBBITY
5. I switched to Relion from OneTouch to save money on test strips, and I couldn't be happier. I initially had a VERY few "E13" errors, but quickly noted how to eliminate them. Very little blood is needed to fill the test reservoir at the end of the strip, but the trick is how you touch the strip to your blood sample. I hold the meter upside down, so that my finger/blood sample is ABOVE the end of the strip; gently place the hard plastic side of the strip against my skin at an angle (like a spatula), and then slide the end of the strip upward until it touches the bottom of the blood droplet. That way, you're using both gravity and a "scooping" action, e.g., to make sure the blood quickly and properly wicks into the test reservoir at the end of the strip. Using this technique, I've had zero "E13" errors.
by NotSoOldMan
6. First of all you need to follow the directions to make sure that you have a big enough blood drop. Use the correct lancet with the correct tip on the lancing device. If it is the ReliOn Lancet, the blue tip is for finger tips and the clear is for your forearm. Press the lancet firmly against the skin so that it makes a dent in your skin, and press the button. Carefully push and lift the end a few times to make the blood flow a little extra. Then take the tip of the meter and put it against your skin about a quarter inch from the drop and slowly slide it toward the drop. Let as much blood in as it will take. The strip needs to be solid red up almost to the meter,
by OldWolfLady
7. There are instructions online of how to use the strips. Until I read that I didn't understand why I'm getting an E13 on MOST of my tries. Now I understand that if TOO much or not enough blood is entered into the test area you'll get the error message. How to do it correctly (and it's hard) is to touch the blood with the end of the test strip only. That is designed to draw the blood into the test area. If you just flood the area by sticking it into a big drop of blood it's a wasted effort. Try only extracting a small amount of blood from your finger. When the blood does get absorbed into the test area PULL AWAY FAST when it reaches the end. If you let it stay there you'll always get too much blood absorbed. These are tricky to use without error messages but I'm sure once we learn properly the price is EXCELLENT.

1. nothing, other than the color.
by mochafusion
2. No difference, just a different color.
by TitanFanTN
3. No difference between the two, just different colors.
by AngMomOfTwo
4. The only difference is the color.
by JerseyGirl1956
5. What I saw in the store was that it was just color choice. They were both the same price in the store. Around $16 for the ReliOn Prime. There were other ReliOn models but the Blue and Red were the Prime model.
by CrankyMonkeyDude
6. The red meter and the blue meter are the same.
by OldWolfLady
7. There's no difference, but both my husband and I need to test, so having his be red and mine blue is a way to not mix our stored results. The meter keeps track of your readings and gives you a weekly average if you want that level of measuring, so having two with different colors helps us keep our results separate.
