Jenny, they have totaly reworked the electronics. I've tested my compact
plus with my lab results, other meters ( I own about 3 different ones) and
they accu-check has shined.
I guess we all have our bad exeperiences with meters through, mine was the
Freestyle, but maybe the new Freestyle is more accurate and reliable.
I've had more trouble with accu chek meters than all others combined.
Advantage - reads about 20 points higher. Accu Chek has replaced the
meter twice with the same results.
Compact - A power up problem. This is not unique to me. A lot of
people have bitched to accu chek about this problem. They just
refused to fix it. The problem is the design of the battery
terminals. There is nothing to hold the batteries firmly in place.
You tend to lose good contact surface with the batteries. Sometimes,
the sipper on the stick will not suck up the blood sample. Wasted
stick. Accu chek has replaced the meter several times and the battery
problem exists still.
Complete - A very good and accurate meter. Except it eats batteries
monthly. They replaced it a couple weeks ago. Not sure if it solved
the problem. I just don't like the meter since it is so big and
Active - Can't find sticks on ebay for it.
Aviva - A good and accurate meter, but sticks on ebay are expensive.
All but the Aviva you mentioned are old technology. Call them and ask to trade in your old compact for the new Compact Plus. You will love it!
