    The best for me is the one that the insurance company will pay for the test strips. Had been using the One Touch Ultra Mini and switched this year to the Bayer Contour Next. It does not matter as long as you are consistent to look for trends.

    All meters have to be within 20% of the acual BG number, and I believe most are more accurate than that, esp when BG is in or close to non-diabetic ranges.
    If you want to compare it (any meter) to lab tests, take the meter with you next time you go to have blood drawn and test with your meter immediately before or after your blood is drawn. Make a note of the number and a reminder to check that number against lab results; then when you get the lab results, you can compare the two numbers and see how close they are. When I've done this, I've always been satisfied 'cause the numbers were very close (sometimes identical).
    I don't know that there's any one that's "the best" but, like Nita said, the one that insurance will cover (esp for your test strips, which is where the real expense comes in) is probably the best option.
    There are some differences, mainly re: things like size and bells and whistles (like, can you download info from the meter to your computer, what kind of notification/sound do you get when the test is done, does the meter talk), but otherwise, I don't think there are huge differences between them--the main difference, it seems, is in how the display looks (at least, that's true of the meters I've used).
