My wife and I have used the product for months. We are happy with it. We have regularly scheduled medical checkups. The readings have been consistent with those at the doctors' office. It's very easy to use and read. Operating instructions are clearly written on the device, including graphic display. Device displays an error signal when improperly operated. Repositioning the arm during use can result in an error signal.

I thought their Deluxe would give me great results, but not even close. Would you believe 170 over 90, but doctor's office always says its in the 120/80 range. Sometimes, if I use it 4 times in a row, it will vary from 150 to 120 to 160 to 140. I really don't know what to expect.
