Pros: I found this computer easy to read, and a good source of information in a hurry. Cons: I was looking for a plastic one, but this is alright. I had a plastic one for years, but it is outdated Overall, a handy product.

Pros: It's a very well laid out quick weather reference guide. The best feature is that it includes a METAR decoder on the front and a quick surface chart weather model legend. Cons: Since this is a new purchase, I am not sure how durable and reliable the actual material it is printed on will last. It's a very thick, posterboard type material but the downside it does not have any plastic lamination. For student and non-instrument rated pilots, it's a useful tool to keep in the flight bag.
