    Cons…..Unable to delete past test reading unless you have a computer and a USB connecting cord. I don’t need something that records 500 tests. If you can change the time and date, you should be able to delete tests.

    Thank you for this informative review! I have to replace the acuchek compact plus I have used for years (I love it) because my supplies are not covered as long as I use this meter. I love the all in one capability of the compact plus. I have a history of rooting around in my purse for supplies only to discover I don’t have any more strips or lancets, etc. (I don’t like the bulky cases that won’t fit in the purses that I use.) With the compact plus, it was never a problem. So I was considering this device or the Tru2go meter but they both seem to be crap! I guess I will shop bulky meters/cases now! :(
