4 out of 5 eggsGood product!

Pros: Durable, Light, Has Anti-Slip Pads, Logical Design, and Keeps Laptops Cool.

Cons: Somewhat noisy when the fan runs above half speed and it rattles when running at full speed, but you will not notice this if you're using headphones.

2 out of 5 eggsworked fine until....

Pros: Cooled adequately.

Cons: I had 2 of these.
Both broke w/in 1 month. USB port on cooler became loose and device stopped turning on.
I called RMA, got the run-around (I have to email someone after calling RMA for some reason?). Said I would have to pay for shipping for returns, even manufacturer defect.
No reply from emails sent to customer service.

5 out of 5 eggsI like it : ) It's enough cool for me.

Pros: First, it has very stylish appearance!!! Many of my friends also like
this sleek black notebook's appearance. And I'm satisfied by this big
size. I have 17" Laptop; usually I have used a small size notebook
cooler which is easy to get hot. But this NC3000S is big enough to
cover my laptop as well as keep the all part of laptop very evenly.
Second, cooling performance is really cool! It has a large big fan
inside and it really works well for my laptop! Even though I touched
the metal surface I could feel cool!!! While I was using my laptop
with NC3000S, it was getting cool and I could feel icy on my keyboard.
Last, cooling sound is Very quiet. I like Zalman because Zalman Cooler
has good performance without heavy noise. NC3000S also has quiet but
cool performance. When I was using my laptop at the night, I couldn’t
hear anything but my laptop noise.

Cons: It's kind of heavy. It's hard to take a cooler outside. And It leaves
finger print on the plastic surface. I have to swap that every time.
I love it. It makes my desk brilliant. : ) Performance is also cool.

Other Thoughts: My laptop is keeping the temperature cooler than before. I haven't
used NC2000 so I can't compare NC3000S with NC2000, but I'm fully
satisfied by NC3000S.

2 out of 5 eggsDissapointed

Pros: Stylish
Large fan
Fits 17.3" nicely

Cons: Cheap plastic, I can feel it separate from the metal surface as I move the laptop from one place to another. USB port just broke on me after less than 2 weeks of use. Difficult to take anywhere because of its awkward size. Sending it back as it does not work now. Cooled my HP dv7 core i7 maybe 7* under load, very poor results.

Other Thoughts: Ive personally used the 2000 series and it is constructed 10x better. Did not yeild the results even near to the 2000 series I have tested on other laptops.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear value customer,

We provide 1 year warranty service, please go to our website and submit a RMA. Thank you for your time and patience.

2 out of 5 eggsFirst Cooler, Very dissapointing.

Pros: -Looks - it is very stylish with the mix of frosted aluminium & glossy plastic.
- The aluminum is cool to the touch even while the fan is off
- BIG quiet fan
- Build quality - very sturdy, has rubber feet for gripping the laptop

Cons: Does NOT cool my laptop adequately. I have used several programs to track temperatures and often times I see no difference in temeratures whether the laptop is on the cooler (full blast) vs when my laptop is sitting on a desk.

Other Thoughts: I am quite dissapointed with this cooler. I did alot of research - matching fan with vents, size, power, etc. I would have expected this cooler to do a much better job considering the fact that this cooler is marketed for up to 17" laptops & my laptop is only a 14.5" laptop. I currently own an HP Envy 14 for anyone who wants to know. I will be returning this product shortly with the intent of purchasing an NZXT Cryo LX with higher hopes.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Zalman quality cooler

Pros: +Light compared to the size and thickness of the aluminum
+gloss finish on the edges bevel look nice under
+extra propping up available
+++BIG FAN: very quiet (hard to hear difference between max and min speeds)
++Design that doesn't collect dust in the fans
just attracts little dusts to hang onto the table
+easy to clean since wiping off the table takes care
of dust
*Also makes surrounding desk area VERY CHILLED
if you have metal or glass desk
this will chill your can of soda by sucking up cold air
(Air speed under the fan is not fast enough to vaccum
up the dusts due to large suction area, but pretty significant
speed on the top through little holes)

Cons: --makes the notebook fans seem louder
(compared to just propping up the laptop in the back)
(the fans themselves don't speed up, but the sound is
reflected by aluminum panel right under the fan)
-cooler is a bit high and steep for me
palm rest area +0.7 in
keyboard area +1.4 in
back end +1.9 in

-not intended to sit on top of your laps or bed
(back end is supported by rubber pads on sharp edges)
-the old model i think had a compartment under for keeping
the usb cable, but this one doesn't.

Other Thoughts: Performance wise, I can't compare this to
previous generation NC-2000
but it sure is nice to fan directly under the holes
rather than from sides like the previous ones
It actually lowered my northbridge and hdd temp a lot
due to the vents without fans are now being circulated
with cold air.

Overall, this might not go in your regular backpack
but does the job so nicely on your desk
If you have hot sweaty hands due to long gaming or
just heat of the keyboard
put it on the chilled desk :) instant cooling!

comparing to the U version,
this has no extra USB ports
(but who needs a power supply to power external hdd
hidden under the cooler?)
besides, SATA II speeds are cut down severely when you
roundtrip the usb connection two times
go eSATA For the win

btw, New egg, you did it this time
almost two day delivery with HUGE package
the box was bigger than most pc cases!
filled 2/3 with sponges
i bet 4 dozens of egg cartons will make the trip
without a single crack
