If you can take the time to set up the meter defaults and time blocks, then
it usually turns out to be just some pushes of the Next button. I use the
meter as my logbook, writing the info into my paper log at the end of the
day (or every 2-3 days when I'm lazy). I also download the info to my
computer. For one to whom timing is everything, I depend on the meter for
the date and time of all events. I don't keep that in my paper logbook. I
like the Complete a lot better than the OneTouch Profile in terms of the
data entry. While you could keep the same info on the Profile, there is no +
or - buttons and if you over-entered you had to go all the way to the upper
limit and then start over again.

I like this meter so much that I had to fight my insurance company (Aetna
Patriot V QPOS) when the wanted me to switch meters and refused to cover my
Comfor Curve strips. (This may have been resolved but I won't know for sure
until I refill my prescription.)
