I was looking for a more economical solution than paying $1 apiece for the control strips for the "free" meter I got from my doctor.(strips are $48 for 51 strips). So I bought this meter. I compared it to me original meter and found it to read 20 points higher than the one I had. I called customer service and after a brief discussion the rep told me she would send me a control solution for free. I continued to test for the next few days with both meters while I waited for the control solution to arrive. It arrived today and I ran a control test and found that the meter is accurate. I did find that it is critical that you pull your blood away from the test strip just as it starts counting down. If you overfill the strip it is not as accurate. I am overall very satisfied with the meter. It is easy to use and is much smaller than my old meter. I was able to buy this meter and a pack of 50 strips for $30. That saved me $18 over just the strips for my old meter and I will save $27 each time I buy my strips from here on out.

I was skeptical about this unit due to the low price, but I decided to try it anyway. I was very surprised with this compact device. The display is large and easy to read and the steps are easy as well. It even has a backlight! The battery lasts for 1000 tests, not like the pricey monitor's that die after 50- 100 tests. It has a large memory of (450) test results. You can get after market software and a cable so you can upload your test info to your computer and cerate personalized charts and results so you and your doctor can better track your glucose, it also comes with a one-year warrant. The strips are affordable and wrapped individually, and have a long shelf life. The ReliOn meter is a super value, very easy to use, and since the device and test strips are so affordable, you can test more often without worrying about going bust. I definitely recommend this meter to anyone that is in the market for an updated and or new meter. I now have 2 of them! Just an F Y I My old, expensive, meter was 2 weeks old when I donated it!

This is not the best meter I've owned, I don't mean its inaccurate, it just doesn't have all the features of the more expensive competition. There are many meters available for low prices, sometimes free after rebates, but I'm paying for supplies out of my own pocket, so the cost per test is important. If you look at test strip prices, you'll find most meters cost nearly $1.00 per test; the ReliOn ULTIMA costs about 45 cents per test. The sample size is tiny, it gives results in 5 seconds, shows 7, 14, and 30 day averages, has big numbers on the display, and everything fits correctly into the carry case. "Coding" the meter is as easy as sugar-free pie. Every box of test strips comes with a calibration strip that you simply insert into the meter, like any test strip, and in a few seconds the meter flashes the lot number of the strips and is ready to go. As another reviewer said, the lancing device doesn't seem that well made, but if you call ReliOn, they'll send a new one out to you at no charge. Their customer service representatives are patient and understand our needs.

When my old tester's testing strips price went to $65 for 50 I went on the hunt for something more affordable. Thank you to RELI-ON for making their family of products for diabetics so affordable! This monitor works simply and draws up the blood sample very quickly every time. It keeps a record of your readings and you can set it to give you an average of your readings for up to a 30 day average. The strips are affordable, at about $20 for $50 and $35 for 100. The 100 strip package is a 73% reduction in my costs from my old brand!! I compared this monitor to my old one for several readings, and it was comparable. I am very happy with it. I also highly recommend their A1C test for under $10. You do it at home, mail in your sample and you have the results within 10 days. It's an excellent way to help manage your diabetes and make sure you are on track in between doctor visits. I find it very motivating to keep me on track.

i had seen the reviews on here and decided to purchase this monitor. but i was really suprised when i got it.. it is so super small.. i thought it would be huge like the older monitors are. it is very small and works great. I am currently pregnant with fears of gestational diabetes so am just checking my BS peroticaly but it seems so far to be a great machine. and for $8 you can't beat that. and the strips are very resonable as well. most monitor strips cost upwards of $50. but for only $20 that is a great deal, also they are sealed so they last you longer which is great for me since i am not using it as much as a diabetic would. anyway great buy. try it.

I recommend this meter alot, and would like to know how I can get the software for downloading results for my patients- many do not have their own computer. Do you need a special cable, or just a regular USB cable?

  • A. go online and go to abbott diabetes care and get the usb data cable and down load the copilot health mag software. it will work for ultima glucometer because it is the same as the abbott Precision Xtra meter. i just use the cable and the software to download my meter.
