When I received my paradigm meter I ran a series of comparisons between it
and my trusty ULTRA.  The results were wildly different; about 30%

A call to BD tech support resulted in  a new set of test strips and a new
meter.  Testing both meters against my ULTRA then gave similar results., so
I put my original errors down to bad test strips.

Thinking about this afterwards, I am not happy about the original errors,
whatever the basic cause.

So I'm still using my ULTRA, and thinking about never using the BD meter.
