    Been using the Jazz as it was issued by surgery, but was sent NextUSB free so decided to give it a test. Results always seem slightly higher on NextUSB than on Jazz, which leaves me wondering which is correct?

    I'm guessing, maybe should side with NextUSB as their test strips have smaller margin of error shown on side of tin, Jazz is 3.0, where Next is 1.6. What I think is also happening, is NextUSB does not give such a wide difference if I re-test, where the Jazz can.

    Just posting on here to ask if any others have noted the NextUSB to read higher than their Jazz or other current machine, and maybe the more important question, does it matter?

    As type 2 I'm told to look for pattern over time, I guess should see that with any meter no mater if it reads low or high. Only thought on this is I tend to moderate my intake to the meter readings!

    Thanks
    Dave
