A1c blood meters: recommendations? Accuracy?

Was the lab test higher or lower than the CVS test? I was thinking of buying some, since the home tests I used to buy at Walmart aren’t available any more. Maybe not worth the trouble.

CVS brand was .4 higher than the lab draw. 5.7 and 5.3. I’ve only recently started using the cvs brand since CVS has stopped carrying any other tests. I have used the A1c Now tests for many years and have never seen more than a .1 difference. I plan on ordering a couple and testing them against labs again.
