4 out of 5 eggsWorks good for a low end weather station

This review is from: WD My Passport 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive WDBKXH5000ARD-NESN Red

Pros: Easy set-up with the help of google, you will need to look-up your elevation. Just search your town elevation. Does a good job at predicting rain/snow and the inside/outside temps are very accurate. The atomic clock is seamless to use. I like it.

Cons: Wish it had a back light and a wall plug in feature for the base unit. Hard to read unless it sits on the coffee table or end table with a light.

Other Thoughts: I like this one, Meade makes good equipment and even though this is a low-end amature unit, it really does the job for those of us who like to watch the weather. Overall, good job!

>Simple to use, don't have to download anything if you don't want to, just plug and use like a big USB

>Got it on sale for 50 bucks, that's only a US dime per GB, not bad.

Cons: >USB chord is meant for laptops, it is barely over 1 ft long

>Only 465GBs is available. Not sure what is taking up 35GBs of space on the seemingly empty hard drive.

Other Thoughts: I am basically using it as a 3rd hard drive for my PC since it was che
