5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

This review is from: ZALMAN Ultra Quiet Notebook Cooler ZM-NC1000 Black

Pros: Metal and durable. Very large and able to accommodate most any laptop. Metal surface helps greatly with cooling.

Cons: Slightly heavier than other chill trays. Cooling air works fine, but I feel as though it could blow a little stronger.

Other Thoughts: Ordered this nearly five years ago and it's still working great. Has been dropped and stepped on multiple times and is unphased.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cooler!

This review is from: ZALMAN Ultra Quiet Notebook Cooler ZM-NC1000 Black

Pros: Very solid and sturdy. Very quiet, no louder than my laptop fan. Seems to always keep my laptop cool. Extra USB slot so you won't be losing any USB ports. On/Off button (many coolers have to be unplugged to turn off). Adjustable fan speed (again, many coolers are not controlled).

Cons: None that I can think of. The price has not gone down much since I bought mine 5 years ago.

Other Thoughts: I have had this cooler for over 5 years and it has kept my laptop cool for the whole time. Yes my laptop is over 5 years old and I'm sure using this cooler on a regular basis helped the longevity of my laptop. I don't have any complaints about it. I did not do a whole lot of gaming so I'm not sure if it is really designed for that but it did fine for me (I do a lot of software/firmware development). In fact I've just ordered a new laptop and I'm debating whether to keep using this notebook cooler or get the new more thin versions. Zalman seems a little on the expensive side but I think the quality is worth it.

3 out of 5 eggsabout a year

This review is from: ZALMAN Ultra Quiet Notebook Cooler ZM-NC1000 Black

Pros: it's metal, works as intended.

Cons: not designed with gaming laptops in mind .

Other Thoughts: had to buy a second USB cord because the one they supplied became useless after a couple of months. i use this with an alienware M11x laptop, my machine gets up to 170 F when being used in a gaming setting, which makes playing uncomfortable. when i use it in a normal web browsing setting or watching movies it can keep it cool, around 120 F.

for what the object provides the price should be 20$ less than what they're asking. or figure out how to get a stronger fan inside so you can at least use it as an air conditioner...

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Amazing and for A Great Price

This review is from: ZALMAN Ultra Quiet Notebook Cooler ZM-NC1000 Black

Pros: I bought this Cooling Mat around 6-8 months ago and it hasn't failed me yet. Some of the reviews might say it doesn't help but it really does. Before I bought this my Toshiba Satellite 15.6" Screen Laptop would not stay on more than 45 minutes at a time without overheating. I'm an avid gamer and that really messed with my ability to play games. But since purchasing this laptop cooler I have experienced no overheating and the computer usually runs at a very comfortable temperature.

It's quiet even on it's highest setting and the USB extension is definitely a very nice add-on. The extended USB port works perfectly.

The construction is very sturdy and durable.

Cons: The position of the USB Extensions is odd for some but not all USB devices. There's a small inlet from the top of the cooler and the USB sits inside of it, but that's not much of a con considering how well the ports work.

Other Thoughts: Overall I have no real complaints about this laptop cooling mat. It's worked extremely well for the last 8 months and shows no sign of slowing down any time soon. From a gamer who was having trouble with an overheating laptop every 35-45 minutes this cooler has been an absolutely amazing piece of equipment and I couldn't be happier with the $50 I spent on it.

I would highly recommend this to anyone who is in the market for a cost effective and reliable cooling mat.

1 out of 5 eggsRebate Discrepancy

This review is from: ZALMAN Ultra Quiet Notebook Cooler ZM-NC1000 Black

Pros: The $10 rebate is a huge hassle to even file for, let alone receive in the form of a card. Besides there being a lot of hoops & paperwork, though Newegg lists the ZM-NC1000 as qualifying for the rebate, that specific model isn't listed on Zalman's rebate site as qualifying for a rebate...it only lists the 'B' model. So hopefully I'll receive the rebate, but who knows.

The cooler seems pricey to me with the rebate, but I've never bought a Zalman & the reviews are so good, so went with it. It's pretty large. Side to side it fits my 17" laptop well, but it sticks out almost 3 inches in the back, which is a lot & too much for my small coffee table. I like the adjustable fan option. Low is quiet; so far after owning just over a month high is not annoying. However, I'm not convince yet that high is highly effective. It doesn't prevent my laptop's fan from having to kick on even with easier tasks, & it doesn't seem to help it a lot, but some I'm sure.

The other big problem is all the telemarketing calls I now receive 2 days after buying this. I was getting none, then bam I'm getting 3 or more a day that I know of...They say "hello, hello, hello, hello"... Spare me the hassle.

Cons: Rebate discrepancy, so far a hassle dealing with company for the rebate, not so effective cooling, sticks out a lot in the back, LOTS of telemarketing calls all of a sudden.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully I'll be able to come back in the future & give rave reviews on this. So far it feels like a mistake.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb cooling airflow. Must have product.

This review is from: ZALMAN Ultra Quiet Notebook Cooler ZM-NC1000 Black

Pros: Living in Florida heat is a real problem. After moving here i saw a slow down in my laptops performance I soon realized it was heat related since it was fine first thing in the morning. Some benchmarking proved high heat numbers. I suspect there are thousands of people with slow laptops in Florida not realizing its a heat issue. On first testing with this product on a Dell Latitude E6400 I didn't think this was going to be up to the job as the fans don't seem that powerful/impressive. However after a month of use I realized it is not the blowing that is important. What this product is doing is creating a smooth cold airflow across the base of the laptop which works perfectly in terms of cooling. Having owned this product now for 3 years I really couldn't live without it. It really is a must have product if you own a laptop no matter where you live.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Reliable Cooler

This review is from: ZALMAN Ultra Quiet Notebook Cooler ZM-NC1000 Black

Pros: Fairly quiet
Adjustable fan speed
Spare USB port
Made it 5 years for me so far

Cons: Cleaning the dust out of it.
I don't like to have to peal off the rubber grip strips to get at the screws but nothing a little glue can't handle to hold em back down again.

Other Thoughts: Owned this cooler for 5 years used almost every day. Either the cooler is showing its age or the USB port I power it has issues. It definitely doesn't spin the fans as fast as it did when new. Just started acting up early April 2013. It's May 2013 now and still going but really starting to slow down.

It still cools sufficient and I won't get another one until this one is unable to keep up anymore.

Will probably end up getting this cooler again.

5 out of 5 eggsVery solid product

This review is from: ZALMAN Ultra Quiet Notebook Cooler ZM-NC1000 Black

Pros: As the owner of a laptop that has had 2 hardware replacements due to overheating, this has been a very good buy since I bought it 2 months ago. The aluminum design in this one is brilliant, as it keeps the pad itself cool to the touch, as opposed to plastic pads that seem to heat up along with the laptop.

The variable fan speed is a huge plus for me, too. When I fire up World of Warcraft, I can crank the fan speed and keep it cool, but I can bring it down to stream TV or movies. Not to mention, there's an On/Off button, so you can have the pad plugged in and still have it off, a feature I haven't seen in too many other pads.

Overall, definitely worth whatever price they decide to throw on this one. If you're going to drop over $500 on a laptop, getting a good cooling pad along with it is as good of an investment as you can make.

Cons: Forgetting to turn it on. I can definitely notice when I don't have the fans running, as my laptop just pumps out hot air. Its more of a mental lapse on my part than any sort of con of the product.

Other Thoughts: I've seen comments about the fans being loud at full speed, but they honestly aren't an issue for me. For one, my laptop fan is louder than the pad's at full speed when playing World of Warcraft or when carrying out demanding processes. And secondly, I'd prefer to know my fans are working hard than to not be able to hear them. It's settling to know they can work that hard.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh

This review is from: ZALMAN Ultra Quiet Notebook Cooler ZM-NC1000 Black

Pros: Does work okay to cool your laptop

Cons: Some Newegg reviews are misleading about it's true cooling power

Other Thoughts: I bought this cooler based on Newegg user reviews like "almost cools the entire room!" and "laptop nice and icy", but the reality is that it's an average cooler at best, and sub-standard at worst (especially whilst gaming). Feels like a lot of 5 star reviews aren't.. trustworthy (ie, from the manufacturer to artificially boost ratings).
