RE: [IP] BD Meter - opinions on strips



I have used the Dex and Dex2 for the last several years, basically since
it was first released here.  I only had a problem with one box of test
strips in that time.  I have 3 meters (home, work, purse) and I test on
average 9 times a day.  I tilt the meter 45 degrees and just touch the
drop of blood and it has basically always worked, expect with that one
box.  Of course, although Bayer replaced one meter that died (one of the
first ones), they only replaced one set of 10 out of the box of 10 sets
of 10.  I should have complained, but I did not.  

I love the dex because the strips are flat and I can place extra strips
in my shirt pocket, back pocket, or very thin purse/wallet.  Try that
with a little round canister.  Also I like the Dex PC software better
than the others I have tried.

 Yep, same thing happened to me identical.
