I bought one but am very disappointed in the product. Although it claims to require only the same amount of blood as the AlphaTrak, that just isn't true. Twice now I have tried to use it and got an E-7 error meaning not enough blood. The directions say the entire marked area at the end of the test strip needs to be filled with blood and this is a pretty large area. Hairy just doesn't give up that much blood. So after spending $35 for the cheap meter and test strips, it looks like I'm going to have to spend another $50 getting more test strips for the AlphaTrak.
