I’m sure these have been discussed before, but I’m gonna do it again just to cause trouble
I’ve been using the UltraLink with my Minimed 722 for 10 days now, and here are the things that aggravate me about it
Test will start without enough blood on strip
Sometimes it is hard to get strip “lined up” with sample, esp if sugar is low
Once I test, I have to pull out pump to save results. Need to be able to hit “OK” on meter to save result on pump, an “auto save” feature in setup would be ideal.
Meter wirelessly talks to pump, pump wirelessly talks to computer. But I have to buy a separate kit that hooks the SERIAL port on the BACK of my computer for the meter and computer to be able to communicate? Come on guys, at least get close to the 21st century, Why won’t you let the meter talk to the Carelink USB dongle? Or at least, put a dang USB port on it. Oh yea, gotta sell those serial kits, soon they’ll be a collector’s item, you’ll find them on eBay in the Everything Else category
This nylon case is pretty damn cheesy looking, even if black does accessorize everything…
All in all, the meter isn’t bad, it could do more though with a little more work between Lifescan and Medtronics on the usability, just my humble, but always correct, opinion
