Having lost my insurance due to work cutbacks (couldn't afford almost $600 for Cobra) I was looking for ways to cut costs for my diabetes supplies. My regular strips were almost $75 for 50 strips from my local pharmacy. While at Walmart I found the Reli-on monitor and strips. It was so much less expensive that I bought the monitor and a box of strips. I was very surprised at how easy it was to use. No coding etc. I love the look of the monitor, and it is easy to read and hold while testing. The strips are accurate (compared it with the last few of my old ones) and the price is very very reasonable. The only drawback is the case which comes with the monitor. It doesn't really have as much room as I am used to for extra supplies, but it is adequate for the monitor, strips, lancets and lancet pen. The strips themselves are also individually wrapped in foil, so that is definite plus, as they don't take up as much room, and stay sterile, with less break down than those in a vial. All in all, this is the best tester I have had, at a very low price!
