3 out of 5 eggsDecent Cooler

This review is from: CM Storm SF-19 - Large Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with Dual 140 mm Turbine Fans and Multicolor LED Lighting

Pros: Very large
Huge fans
High RPMs
Lots of airflow
Independently wall powered
Variable RPM control
LEDs
Cable routing
Carrying handle

Cons: Power cable housing prone to failure

Other Thoughts: I bought this to cool my HP ENVY-DV6-7214nr laptop that has serious heat issues. It worked very, very well for a long time, 2 years I think. It keeps the laptop much cooler than otherwise, and is plenty large for my little 15.6" laptop. The LEDs are a nice touch, and it being independently powered was the biggest plus for me.

However, after 2 years of ownership, the end of the power cable started getting very, very wiggly inside of the cooler. Eventually it got to where I had to wiggle it myself to make the fans start spinning. Then, towards the end of the ordeal, I noticed one time, while playing a game, that the cooler was making a very high pitched squealing noise. I unplugged it and it immediately stopped. I tried again, it happened again, and that time, I noticed a burning smell. My assumption is that the cable was causing problems and varying power supply to the cooler and it was causing one of the internal pieces to overheat/overload and was going to "pop." Contacted Cooler Master support, and my product was still under warranty, and they proceeded to RMA me a new one once I shipped the old one back. Not a terrible experience, but be wary of the power cable.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Accessory, worth the price.

This review is from: CM Storm SF-19 - Large Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with Dual 140 mm Turbine Fans and Multicolor LED Lighting

Pros: absolutely the best thing about it is: THE UNIT'S FANS ARE REPLACEABLE!!!!!!
below are a list of the other pros:
1) Quiet, literally nearly silent when set on low speed. when set at low speeds, it provides sufficient cooling unless i am gaming and the computer is under high graphic and CPU loads. then you turn the dial to high speed.
2) when i turn it on high, it cools this laptop down as though it was a mini air conditioner.
3) The led lights can be turned completely off
4) the rubber bumpers that stop the computer from sliding ACTUALLY WORK O_O
5) the uniit has its own usb hub built in and it works for more than just allowing devices to charge. i run my mouse through the hub as well as my Ipod when i need to sync it.
6) the unit's fans are REPLACABLE!!!!!!
7) The fans are also configurable; so you can move them where you need to. i have one fan under the CPU and one under the GPU vents.
8) you can replace the fans with 3 or 4 pin fans.
9) the thing looks cool and its color scheme goes with my G75
10) controls are easy to reach and simple to use
11) has its own dedicated power supply so it doesnt drain off your laptop.
12) the unit has a cord organizer discreetly built into both the front AND the rear of the housing that cleans up the loose cables quite nicely.
13) it is so easy to move and remove and replace the fans. i did it right when i purchased it, just to make sure the system worked and was actually capable of what the description said. it was. took me all of 5 min to disassemble the fans, move them to where they would be most effective, and reassemble.
14) cool led colors; they are bright and are controllable if you have a later model graphics card like the geforce 780 and later, with that GPU you can actually have the led's set to come on with different programs, and shift between what activity you are engaging in.
15) the unit really will fit a 19 inch laptop without any issues.
16) the last thing, but not the least, is that the unit is built solidly and looks as though it would be able to take a beating traveling between lan parties and anywhere else. ive only packed it 4 or 5 times now, but its still in the perfect condition it started in. a solid unit for sure

Cons: now for the not so good, but there really isn't much i don't like about it.

1) Price. it was far more expensive than many others; but the price can be justified as you are really getting what you pay for.

2) the led lights are a little bright for my eyes; i am light sensitive. however, the ability to turn them off remedies that problem in my eyes.

3) My wife said she thinks it is kinda bulky; but it would have to be so that it could fit a 17.3 in laptop. it could actually fit a 19 inch laptop on it without any issue. it really is big enough for that--both deep enough and wide enough.

Other Thoughts: i purchased this unit from another seller, however, i LOVE THIS THING. i have a 2 year old ASUS G75 laptop that had been running a little warmer than i like. i went through 3 other cooling pads in the last 2 years; they kept burning out, the fans that is. and all the others were loud.
The CM Storm's fans are also rated to last for nearly 3 years of CONSTANT RUNNING, if you calculate the time based on the life expectancy listed for the fans. these fans are amazing. silent and powerful. i love the built in usb hub as well as the unit's dedicated power supply.

i would recommend this unit to anyone who uses a laptop for gaming and wants a cooling pad that actually does what it is supposed to.
truly, this one is perfect.

4 out of 5 eggsCools as it is suppose to

This review is from: CM Storm SF-19 - Large Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with Dual 140 mm Turbine Fans and Multicolor LED Lighting

Pros: -Variable Fan Speed
-On/Off Lights
-Extra USB Ports
-Ability to turn the fan(s) to either blow on to or off of your computer(I did not realize this was an option when I ordered)
It does what it's suppose to do. My laptop has cooled down by around 5-10 degrees using this cooler.

Cons: It can be a little loud with the fans on full speed. Bigger than I expected it to be.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my 15.6" size laptop and the cooler is wider than my laptop is. This would easily fit a 17" laptop. It would be nice if they had split the extra usb so that 2 were 2.0 and 2 were 3.0 or all 3.0.

4 out of 5 eggsHmmm

This review is from: CM Storm SF-19 - Large Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with Dual 140 mm Turbine Fans and Multicolor LED Lighting

Pros: Big enough for my 17.3

Cons: It arrived broken, with the fan assembly clips broken off.

Other Thoughts: Newegg made it right within the same week, and I got another model ordered. The different model was mostly based on a good sale that didn't exist when I ordered this CM Storm. Giving 4 eggs because even though I was disappointed it arrive broken, I walked away feeling taken care of and was ready to buy from Newegg again quickly after.

4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: CM Storm SF-19 - Large Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with Dual 140 mm Turbine Fans and Multicolor LED Lighting

Pros: - Cools really well
- Very lightweight, and comfortable on lap.
- LED lights are neat

Cons: - Gets noisy at higher speeds (usually don't need them anyway)

Other Thoughts: A fan blade broke within a few days of my obtaining it. It still runs, but now the fans are unbalanced, and vibrate a lot more, even on the lowest speed possible. (vibration increases with the fan speed)

Unsure how to gain a replacement fan (if that's even a possibility).

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Well except the power cord

This review is from: CM Storm SF-19 - Large Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with Dual 140 mm Turbine Fans and Multicolor LED Lighting

Pros: Fans are positioned well and push a good amount of air. It's comfortable to place on your lap but a bit large to move around. The extra USB slots can be useful, but i haven't tried them.

Cons: The Power chord, if this thing has 1 issue it's the power cord, it's short and i mean like 3 feet shorter than it should be. It also goes bad after about 7 months if you move your laptop around. I have to move the wire around just to get it working.

Other Thoughts: I would really have liked a USB to power the cooler. It's nice to be able to power it when it's at a desk, but I move my laptop around a lot and having tons of wires makes life annoying, maybe a 1 foot USB plug and 6 foot power chord.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: CM Storm SF-19 - Large Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with Dual 140 mm Turbine Fans and Multicolor LED Lighting

Pros: Cools laptop as intended. Both fans are great and interchangeable should it break down.
Keeps thighs cool too!

Cons: Fans are a little loud, but that is fine if it keeps my laptop from frying up. With headphones on you won't even notice a thing.
The power cord is rather short and I need to be close to a plug in order to operate it. Wish it had a longer cord.

Other Thoughts: All in all a great buy.

4 out of 5 eggsCM Storm SF-19

This review is from: CM Storm SF-19 - Large Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with Dual 140 mm Turbine Fans and Multicolor LED Lighting

Pros: adjustable fan speed lets u strike a nice balance between noise and cooling
works well in your lap
using it with a new ASUS G750 and it definitely helps

Cons: Cavitates (and is really noisy) at higher fan speeds. Can be fixed by increasing elevation

Other Thoughts: a right angle power plug would be easier/safer to manage
