I have been using Freestyle Libre for about 6 months now. I find it inconsistent - sometimes it runs as much as 60 lower than numbers on my meter, sometimes as much as 30 lower than my meter. It seems to depend on where I place the sensor on the back of my arm! I had better results/more accurate numbers using the Dexcom but it would start beeping at bad times

Read about it here: https://www.freestylelibre.us/

I have used one for two weeks. It is 15-20 minutes prior to your meter readings, but is very helpful for seeing what happened overnight, or between meter testing. I really like it, but I won't be able to afford the sensors all the time. it's about $75 every two weeks.
