4 out of 5 eggsLow Quality Fans **Review Update**

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U2 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Two Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: Cooler Master contacted me in response to my review of their product on NewEgg. Both of my fans failed within the time frame of the warranty, but I failed to contact CM before the warranty had expired. Despite this, they still honored the warranty and replaced my broken fans absolutely free. In addition, the replacement fans were of a higher quality. They are heavier, contain metal wire frame guards instead of the metal mesh type that came with my cooling pad, and the wiring was shorter thus making it the perfect length when plugged into my USB port whereas before, there was too much length and the wires would bunch, kink, and overall a general nuisance.It's been two months and the fans are still working great. Thanks, Cooler Master!

Cons: I still don't like that the front edge of the cooling pad/stand can't rest flush on the surface the pad/stand is sitting on if you mount a fan on the extreme lower right corner which is where I need the fan to be in order to keep my GPU cool. Otherwise the laptop overheats and shuts down while gaming.

Other Thoughts: This review is an update to the previous review I gave of this product here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/SingleProductReview.aspx?ReviewID=4091251

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing product

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U2 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Two Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: Keeps my HP Pavilion g6 very cool (which had very bad overheating problems, to the point where the computer's fans were so loud it was disrupting class almost) Now it's nice and quiet and never overheats with this simple accessory.

Cons: Only con I see is the need to remove the fans every time you use it as a carrying case, or if you simply need to save space in your backpack, but if you use some type of marker to remember where exactly you had the fans (or just eventually memorize it) it's not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: If you are buying this buy the U2 NOT the U3 unless if you absolutely need air in 3 locations. The U2 has a 33% higher total CFM (31*2) vs the U3 (~15*3). So if you only have two vents on the bottom, or two large ones and various smaller ones, just stick with the U2, cheaper and works better.

1 out of 5 eggsHas Potential..

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U2 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Two Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: Adjustability and aluminum body.

Cons: The wiring is amateur at best. Most days I had to jiggle the wiring around to make them kick on. The fans died less than two months after receiving the pad. The USB connector sticks out excessively. I can deal with losing a port if this thing didn't stick out so far. The fans really didn't push out much air, but it was better than nothing I suppose.

Other Thoughts: This pad has some serious potential if these shortcomings are fixed. Being able to place individual fans where needed is an awesome concept, but it is overshadowed by the quality of the most important components.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Leo,

We are sorry to hear you had trouble with our cooler. We can definitely help by replacing those fans under warranty. Would you be able to contact us so we can rectify the situation?

Respectfully,

3 out of 5 eggsLow quality fans

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U2 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Two Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: - Lightweight
- Aluminum
- Quiet
- Customizeable fan placement

Cons: The biggest problem with this model is the most important, the fans. I've had this thing for only 8 months and the fans have already started to fail. One of them won't spin unless I "give it a nudge" manually or with compressed air. The other fan has begun to slow down and I'm sure will soon be in the same state as the other.

No speed control. I want the fans to spin much faster, similar to the average desktop fan.

If you place a fan at the extreme bottom of the grid, it will prevent the frame from resting on the surface you are using and the entire laptop cooler will be held up by the fan. This prevents the fan from pulling in enough air to spin at full speed. I have had to prop the lower section up to give the fan enough space to operate properly. I need the fan to be in the lower right of the grid because that is where my GPU is located.

Other Thoughts: After trying three different cooling pads, I think I will have to design and build my own, as none of the laptop coolers I have tried, or looked at, have all of the features I am looking for, or they are poorly designed and fail quickly.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsWhat you need, no more

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U2 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Two Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: Cools well and quietly. The metal frame is minimalist, without the excess plastic and aluminum which burden fully enclosed coolers. Wraps around my 15" laptop for traveling, taking up very little extra space. Works well in bed or on sofa as well as lap or table. USB pass-thru.

Cons: USB plug sticks out excessively, could damage laptop port if struck.

Other Thoughts: I'll never buy another big plastic cooler. This cooler takes up little additional room in laptop case. My 15" Asus Q550LF overhangs about 3/4" on both sides. Turned out this laptop runs very cool, so I only use the fans when a game causes its Nvidia video card to kick in. Cooler keeps laptop vents free when used on bed or pillow. Fans are not silent but very quiet. Hopefully this is the future of laptop cooler design.

2 out of 5 eggsWas really happy until...

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U2 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Two Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: It worked excellent, did exactly what I needed it to. But then after 6 months that stopped.

Cons: For the first 6 months there were zero cons. Then last week one of the two fans just died, I can get it to spin for a few seconds but it pushes no air flow and then stops. The other one is still working for now but I'm not confident it will stay that way. This has already caused multiple blue screens due to overheating since this cooling pad was meant to keep my laptop in healthy temperatures in certain components.

I really don't want to give this a bad review because it did work so well but with one fan dying for seemingly no reason (no travel, almost no movement, just standard daily use on a desk) I can't recommend the product if a fan is just going to die on you too.

Other Thoughts: I would love if the company offered replacement fans to purchase, since those are likely to die eventually even after the warranty is up and would bring the price down of getting the product back up and working right.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

1 out of 5 eggsComplete junk.

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U2 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Two Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: Well when I first reviewed this I was quite impressed, but as my cons list, that has since changed.

Cons: After a couple months of light use, one of the fans has crapped out on me. Mind you, this thing never leaves my desk, and is only run periodically throughout the day.

Other Thoughts: I would not suggest this product to a friend, or even an enemy for that matter.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Gary,

We sincerely sorry to hear you one of the fans failed. We would like to help out by sending out a replacement set of fans under warranty coverage. Would it be possible if you could contact us so we can help make this right and get replacement fans sent?

Respectfully,

4 out of 5 eggsLightweight and compact.

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U2 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Two Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: Compact and seems to be effective. I love the angle on this, although it is quite extreme (for me) it's still very usable.

Cons: I ordered a silver one and received a black one but I won't dock an egg for a simple mistake. With no fan speed control I wish the fan speed was a little higher, although it is effective. I noticed when first putting it together that you can't clip either of the fans in the lower 5 rows of holes because it causes the stand to rest ON the fan and rock back and forth, which was a little disappointing and unfortunately for me, worth an egg, as the fan can't be centered exactly where it needs to be.

3 out of 5 eggsAwesome -- if it works...

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U2 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Two Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: I love the design of this thing. Simple, minimalistic, and it lets you put the fans exactly where they are most needed.

Cons: Well, the quality of the fans could be better. Out of the two fans, one of them sounds like a jet taking off due to bad bearings when it is first turned on. Typically, is makes a LOT of noise for about a minute or two. After that it quiets down.

Other Thoughts: Great product when it works properly.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Kevin
