To set off my bad reviewing to an new low. I was given this Nova Max BG monitor and if I thought the Delica was bad this Nova Max is straight out of the 80's. Now I was not reviewing the Max since it is dead in the water and they are moving their products to another line. This monitor was more of a gift, and a bad gift at that. The screen was hard to read, it felt cheap, and was just wrong all the way around.
Back to this Delica lancing device, I think the most dissapointing part was just how cheap the thing felt. That is the first thing I love about the Accu-Check Multiclix, it is as sturdy as an ox and it shoots very accurate. The Delica does not fit in anybodies hand, it has wierd buttons, and feels like the quality of a Mcdonalds toy. The front of the box says "More comfortable testing," who, what, where and how is this piece of Walmart rejected product more comfortable? Don't get me started on the wheel of death on the end that adjusts the depth. I have to check the depth level everytime because it rolls to another number constantly. Then I don't even want to discuss the double button slide things. How big do you need to make the cocker? Then changing the needle I stab myself everytime because the cap has this crazy twist and pull system and it causes me to drag this thing up and down my arm everytime. Just make the cap pull off!
The final result of this lacing device on my patented syringe scale of one to five syringes and five being the best, I give the Delica 1 syringe out of 5. I hate being negative and wish there was something good to say about this device but there is nothing. The engineers that designed this device need to find work in another field, maybe working on mideval torture devices. They are not fit to design diabetic devices. To make this even worse my mail order pharmacy called and said I could get 900 lancets and 2 more free Delica's for 20 bucks. I took them on that supposed "Deal." I might just use a rusty nail for the next three months.
