I picked one up tonight at CVS since they were $69.98 and have a rebate for up to $70. Not a bad meter, it has the best features of the Ultrasmart -- backlight and ability to make comments.
It is not smaller though, it's the same size as the old Ultra and not significantly smaller than the Ultra Smart. However, it is lighter.
Downloading data works fine, after I downloaded the software update. However, right now, I don't konw how to make it work with EzManager, I have an email out to EzManager support.
