5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Three Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: It has a completely open design so the fans can pull air. Really keeps my laptop cool. The angle is perfect for typing on keyboard. I paid the extra $6 to get the 3rd fan and am very happy with it. I've had junk coolers in the past. They had kickstands which constantly fell. Another bad cooler had a solid base so it had a hard time pulling air. Love this solid metal mesh design. You can move the fans wherever ur laptop needs them. Even works on ur bed/comforter. And the USB plug has a piggyback so you it doesn't take up a port. Just plug another USB on top of it. Great product.

Cons: Could be cheaper? but I don't mind paying $38 to protect my laptop.

4 out of 5 eggsQuality cooler

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Three Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: Quality build
Configurable fans
Beautiful design
Can be used as a carry case
Descent cooling

Cons: Expected better airflow
A little pricey

Other Thoughts: Bought this for 17 inch laptop and was really satisfied with the design and build quality. So far the best laptop cooler I ever had. Strong aluminum frame, which looks good on any table. The only downside is the airflow provided by fans is not that powerful, but is enough to decrease temps by 10-15 C. I would recommend this cooler to anyone. I owed notepal X3 and this is much better looking and better build cooler.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks adequately

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Three Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: movable fans
adjustable fan speed
holds my 17.3" laptop perfectly
almost inaudible fans

Cons: holds my 17.3" laptop perfectly, would be too small for a 19" laptop.
the wire is connected to the side of the usb so i have to plug it into the outer usb in order to be able to use both.
fan speed adjuster clip is loose, so any movement and it will practically fall off.
not enough traction, laptop can easily slip off

Other Thoughts: I have only had it for a few hours and this is just a preliminary review and i will update it in a few weeks.

First off I would like to say that the packaging is sloppy. I received a huge box and thought it would be well protected, but the cooling pad box itself is not well packaged. The fans are in a separate white box that is allowed to move throughout the box, crashing into the walls- i hope it doesn't cause any long term damage. Even though the box was well cushioned the cooling pad box was still dinged up.

Ive been using it for about an hour and it is working well, i hoped it have a faster fan speed but it gets the job done. When i started, my laptop was so hot that i was unable to touch the keyboard because it would practically burn my fingers, but now it is still warm but significantly cooler.

I have an issue with the rubber pads as they are not adequate to keep my laptop from slipping off so i have to push it up after a while. However, when i have it on the table the bottom rubber pads are good and do not allow any movement.

3 out of 5 eggsSlightly Less than Satisfied

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Three Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: Just a quick point to make. I just received this today. I have yet to collect any real world data or thoughts about its performance. I hope to eventually update this post with more quantitative and qualitative evidence.

Cons: Initial Thoughts:
-Lightweight (also a slight con)
-3 Fans
-Decent Price
-Free Shipping
-Fits my 15" widescreen laptop
(more to come)

Other Thoughts: The only current negative reaction I have to this product is its flimsiness. Apparently receiving it in 24 hours and choosing free shipping requires the packaging to be somewhat thoughtless. The person who packed this decided it best to not put packaging all around the product. The device’s box was found at the bottom of the shipping box with no cushioning below it, but there was definitely room in the box. I already know that UPS will be rough with items not marked fragile. UPS is not my complaint. Considering how many reviews state this product lacks rigidity, I would expect a bit more care with packing. Sure enough the bottom right corner was bent about 45 degrees and both support legs were bent in. I've decided not to send it back since I corrected it by bending it back. It's sort of depressing though to receive a much anticipated item to only see it bent to heck. It's too bad Newegg doesn't have a quality control system in place to hold their packers accountable for either their lack of intelligence or negligence. I would like to offer an honest suggestion. What if packers were simply assigned a number? Then they are given a sheet of paper with multiple stickers of that number. They place this in every box they package, so when something goes wrong then customers can reference the packers number for accountability purposes. Otherwise, this will continue to be a problem for future customers.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat but not really worth $40

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Three Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: Cools my laptop great, probably about 12+ degrees at full speed. Looks nice, decent airflow, fan controller works fine.

Cons: The metal is pretty flimsy. It wiggles a bit when you type fast. Also the fan control clamp isn't very strong and tends to slide off easily. The rubber parts aren't as grippe as I would like. Isn't very comfortable using in lap.

Other Thoughts: The intake vents on the bottom of my laptop are directly where my GPU and both heat pipes are so that probably explains why my cooling temps are so good. I really wish that the thickness of the metal was like 2x thicker, the wiggling is pretty bad... well horrible actually, but it's kinda bearable I guess. I got the U3 for my 15.6in laptop and it fits fine, but I should have gotten the U2 just so it fits better with my laptop.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome cool pad!

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Three Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: Very nice cool pad, keeps my laptop cool under multi-hour gaming sessions.

Cons: The feet that hold the fans to the housing break easily. I fixed this with a couple zip ties and have not had any issues since then.

Other Thoughts: I game with a gaming keyboard/mouse and headset. The design of this unit is perfect for cable management. I mounted a small USB hub to the cool pad as well as all excess wires. This makes moving around the house extremely easy. I would definitely recommend this item.

5 out of 5 eggsworks exactly as it should

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Three Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: -build quality
-aluminum
-user moveable fans-can be placed exactly where you need them
-adjustable fan speeds
-very quiet fan operation even on highest setting its barely audible

Cons: none at this time

Other Thoughts: i use this on a asus k55n-ds81 15.6 inch laptop. i was using a single fan belkin laptop cooling pad made of plastic. when i would play counter strike source my laptop would heat so badly it would auto shut down within 5 minutes. After getting the CoolerMaster NotePal U3 plus I seen immediate results.
While gaming my temps stay in the mid 50c to low 60's c and when not gaming they stay in the low to mid 40's c.
I beleive the aluminum grill/pad is a big help since aluminum is good at dispersing heat. The moveable fans are great as well because you can place them exactly where you need them. I've read where some say the fans could be more powerful but since my laptop is staying within the temps listed above I am more than satisfied. I usually keep the fan speed on low while not gaming and set to high speed when gaming and even on high the fans can barely be heard. At first I was somewhat skeptical about the fan speed adjustmant control since its not housed on the cooler, instead its a clip on unit thing, but it stays in place and it being clip on allows you to place it anywhere on the cooler pad you need it.

5 out of 5 eggsdoes what its supposed to

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Three Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: -aluminum
-adjustable fan speeds
-very easy to move/place fans where you need them
-very quiet
-well built and sturdy unit, not at all flimsy like some have mentioned.

Cons: none as of yet

Other Thoughts: i bought this cooling pad because my asus k55n ds81/15.6 inch would auto shut down when playing counter strike source on ubuntu 14.04. after using this cooling pad my laptop has not shut off any and i am seeing my temps stay in the low 60's c while playing the game. i feel the aluminum plays a big part of dispersing the heat and the 3 moveable fans keep the air flowing. with fans on fastest setting i can barely hear them.
as mentioned earlier while gaming my temps stay in the mid 50 to low 60's c and if not gaming they stay in the low to mid 40's.
at first i wasn't very fond of the fan speed adjuster switch being a "clip on" type thing but it stays in place and makes it so you can pretty much place it on whatever side you need.

5 out of 5 eggsUnbelievable Cooking

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Three Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: Received my cooling pad this morning. Turned my computer over so I could make sure I lined up the 3 cooling fans with the hot spots. The CPU was so hot it was hard to even keep my hand on the computer case.

Two hours later and I can hardly hear the fan running on my computer. For all I know the fan that I hear is on the cooling pad, but it is actual hard to hear. The back of my computer is absolutely cool to the touch, I can't feel any heat at all.

Success.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well with some help

This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal U3 PLUS - Laptop Cooling Pad with Three Configurable High Performance Fans - Black

Pros: I am using this with a Dell Precision M6600. Set to the Balanced preset I would normally see a mean CPU temp 57C. With the cooler under it I have manged to get the mean CPU temp down to 43C.

My GPU has had lesser results though I think that is mostly due to a bad fan controller. Without the cooler i see a mean temp of 65C. With the cooler that has dropped to about 59C.

The device itself is well constructed and the fans are easily moved. I've been toying with their locations quite a bit and they don't stick or fall off.

Cons: The fans don't seem to do much when the laptop is sitting on them normally. The rubber spaces help but ultimately i have a 1 inch thick piece of Styrofoam propping the front end of the laptop off the cooler. This little wedge produces a marked difference.

I took one egg off because I feel like the cooler should be able to get results without assistance.

Also I wish the fans could spin a little faster but I'm not going to knock an egg off for that.

Other Thoughts: Dell M6600 from 2012
CPU: i7 2760QM
GPU: Quadro 4000M

All in all its a $40 product that will do well to protect my $4000 laptop.

It might take a bit of fooling around to find the best layout for the fans but if you don't mind playing with it for an hour or two you should get great results.
