4 out of 5 eggsVery impressed!

Pros: This is an incredible piece of equipment. I was using a Logitech cooling pad which just doesn't even compare to this beaut! I like that the fans can be moved into place EXACTLY where you want them. PLUS they can be taken apart for easy cleaning. The USB plug has a space on the back to plug another USB in so you don't lose valuable ports. I am really impressed. My laptop (DELL Inspiron 17R) has known issues with over heating and was always hot even with the Logitech cooling pad. With this one, it is cool to the point of being too cold! Also I can take it all apart in 10 seconds, insert my laptop in the back and strap it for added protection when travelling. This is a genius product.

GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY!

Cons: Only thing I DON'T like is that the pad doesn't have enough rubber grip and my laptop tends to slide off if it's not EXACTLY in the right spot. Seems to be an issue with everyone that purchases it, but that outweighs the sheer genius of the design.

3 out of 5 eggsOK for the price

Pros: - Nice minimalistic design
- Perfect angle for typing
- Ideal size for my 17" Toshiba Qosmio X70

Cons: - Brushed aluminum is rather rough to the touch
- There isn't enough support to keep the laptop in place - my 7 lb laptop tends to slide down when I rest my hands on the keyboard
- According to my tests its fans aren't making any considerable difference no matter the speed; could be due to the way my laptop is designed internally
- The fans aren't detachable, you'd have to cut the cord to replace a broken fan

Other Thoughts: In regards to the brushed aluminum - given the price, don't expect it to be as well polished as Apple products, I would not be too surprised if I cut myself on it one day; overall the product feels like a giant cheese grater.

Dear Customer

I am sorry to hear that U3 has not met your requirements. We do have other models linked below that should fit your requirements. We also have a link to our CM Store site below where we over additional fans set for your U3 to add another three with a total of six fans on your cooler. Please feel free to contact us below if you have any questions or comments about our CM products.

Thank You

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: 17 inches across, exact length as my laptop.

Sturdy base, not worried about it breaking. 6.4lb laptop.

Fans work and you can arrange them in many but not all positions.

Inaudible if fans are low, not loud if the fans are maxed out.

Cons: I use the travel band to secure my laptop so it doesn't slide, however by doing this you are limited to placing the fans in a line. One side of my laptop gets really hot while running games so I wanted to put two fans there but then I was struggling to secure the band without covering a fan.

Other Thoughts: The travel band picture assumes you aren't bringing the fans.

Final thoughts: Great overall product that helps with cooling, though you shouldn't expect extreme temperature drops.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect Fit - good quality

Pros: Solid Construction
Light Weight
Silent Fans
Flexible Fans Placement
Good Heat Dissipation
Perfect Size for 17in Laptop - MSI G70 Series
Second use as transport protection a big +++

Cons: on the pricey side
had to smooth out some sharp edges with soft sandpaper - nothing major but given the premium price point this should have not been overlooked by the manufacturer.

4 out of 5 eggsCame with a headband!

Pros: Powerful fans, place fans where needed, 3 fans, quiet, adjust fan speed for use, light, portable

Cons: Flimsy cable connections

Other Thoughts: This stand was exactly what I need for my dv6 pavilion. Allowed me to run cpu/gpu taxing games and programs with little worry of overheating my system.
I wish they had made the cable connections to and from the speed adjustment box a little more sturdy. The cable pulled out of the box for the 4th time yesterday (I have fixed it 3 times now). After 2+ years of service I think it is time to look at something new. Highly considering buying another one after how well this one worked for me.

4 out of 5 eggsJust what I needed

Pros: Stury design, custom fan positions, USB passthrough, custom fan speed.

I found this product to be easy to set up, and feel is has lots of good options to fit the needs of different devices. Frame is made of medium thickness aluminum and feels like it could take a little roughness. Fans can be removed from their clips which gives the possibility of future replacement. It sits at a good angle as well.

Cons: Max fan speed could stand to be a little higher as there wasn't a great deal of air being pushed. Probably wouldn't dish out enough air for major gaming. Also my mention of replacing the fans would require the wires to be cut and spliced onto the replacement fans as there are no removable plugs.

Other Thoughts: I picked this up to give active cooling to my RT-N16 router which has beastly speed, but tends to run a tad hot. Placed two of the fans below the router and one below a cheap Zoom cable modem. Both remain very cool at medium fan speed and it produces very little noise. This product would be a perfect fit for my needs if the fans could be replaced without cutting wires.

2 out of 5 eggsCooler Master NotePal U3

Pros: N/A

Cons: Arrived damaged, 1 of 3 fans was inoperable. Output of the 2 functioning fans was very low even at the highest speed setting.
