Does anyone use one of those home BP monitors ?

Does anyone use one of those home BP monitors (the digital ones)? My BP has been between 90 to 97/80 for a couple of times now and wonder if these machines are reliable. Also, do you think this is too low?

I have one for keeping a track of my BP as I suffer from hypertension and the doctors like me to keep a record of it at home. They are pretty reliable, but the best way of checking your particular one is take it into the doctors with you, and after they have checked your BP, check it with your own device, you'll then see how close your reading is to that of the doctors, and be able to adjust your readings accordingly. Hope this helps.
