[IP] RE:Does anyone have a Precision QID or Precision Xtra?

My insurance co. only covers Precision meters. I've been using a precision
QID for 1 year & I hate it. It's downloadable, but you need to get the cable
and software separately or get insur to cover it.  easy to use, only has one
button and recalls the last 10 tests but without time/date stamp.  and it
requires a *big* drop of blood. if it doesn't have enough it will error out
or actually give an incorrect reading. The meter is cheap, I've seen it on
sale for $9.99 at Walgreens, but the strips are comparable to other meters
and a little more expensive. They're individually foil wrapped and sometimes
annoying to open esp during a low or high when coordination is not the best.
I usually test around 6x a day so after a while my fingers couldn't take it
anymore and I just bought a Freestyle. It's finally on sale at walgreens:
free with the purchase of 2 boxes of 50pk strips. and they only cost me
$37.99 each pack.

prescription) that I had to switch to one of
