CLEAR BLUE not so clear?

There are two types of clear blue ov tests, which one is the best? There is the monitor which is very expensive (in my opp) and then there is the clear blue ov stick tests which are far, far cheaper. With the monitor you have to buy sticks too so please don't be confused with that. Why buy clear blues expensive digital monitor when you can buy there cheaper digital test sticks? So, my question/poll is...WHICH ONE IS BETTER?

I'm also curious about these. I used the cheaper digital ones this month and didn't get a + OPK, doesn't mean the test doesn't work lol probably be me.  I only think I found was it was better to use a cup because sometimes when you insert the new stick into the digital monitor you get the error sign that doesn't go away for 8 minutes. So if you go with these and like to test first thing in the morning it kinda makes you mad if you have to hold it because the test didn't work right the first time. Sometimes it doesn't work the second time either...I just wiggle the test a little and then it works. We'll see next month if they are better again.

If anything you can try the cheaper digital ones for a month and see if they work for you, if not then go from there.

Thanks both of you! I am a very head over heels person and if I get something in my head I just go out and buy the "best" thing there is...which some times is a waste and I could have gotten something better for less. I don't want to waist a month though. My first thought says to me... try the cheaper store brand ones for a month and then next month buy clear blue....but on second thought waiting another month might not be as easy as hoped. I will think about it for a little while. But knowing me...I will just buy the clear blue test sticks or even go full throttle and get the expensive monitor because so many other people do. I'm looking forward to hearing from others as well =D

I also love the clear blue digital and I order them  online from Amazon for about $25 for 20 tests. I looked into getting the monitor but felt it wasn't worth the $.
