    I've always used the Aviva, but was lucky enought to be sent the Nano by our own Stuboy because he didn't like it.

    I DO like it, and use it ALOT.

    Hi ShellyJ,
    I've had one since they were launched and I love it. It's about as easy to use as any meter can be, and it's not too big, so the ladies can get it in a handbag easily leaving room for the kitchen sink :wink:
    Accu-Chek have fantastic Customer Support here in the UK too, which I think is very important. ANY problems they are only a phone call/email away 24/7. :)

    Hi I got a Nano from the advert on this forum(the first 50 free ad) and - it turned up last week -well the finger pricker is the least painful I have used (devote coward here -6'2" and scared of a little needle !!) and easy to use as well. The meter is great - quick, easy, clear digits and small. I'm very happy with it - do wish the case was a bit bigger to keep an extra tub in for used strips etc.

    But over my old trusty meter -a one touch ultra easy (if I got the name right ) I'm totally converted - meter good; the finger pricker - outstanding - and the alternative site testing is much less painful (again) than the finger (if suitable for you / time etc)

    All told GREAT !!
