1 out of 5 eggsNot noticeable.

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

Pros: It feels really sturdy and I don't doubt that it would last well.

Cons: It doesn't do it's job. With my laptop fan maxed and the cooling pads fan maxed my laptop still soars above 100 C. For the premium price I would have expected it to mitigate the extreme temps.

Other Thoughts: No noticeable difference in operating temperatures.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsWorks better than expected

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

Pros: Keeps the RAM in my notebook nice and cool.

Cons: Costly

Other Thoughts: I removed the cover panel from the RAM on my notebook so it wouldn't get so hot, but the RAM still got hot to the touch. Then I decided to try this product. On slow speed with the cover removed, the RAM stays cool to the touch. Amazing! With the cover in place, it still gets rather warm, but no longer gets hot.

Some people complain the fan isn't completely silent. Well of course not! Fans are never totally silent, but the ones they put in this unit are as quiet as they get.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

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

Pros: Just an update to add to my initial review:

Two and a half years of school use and still going strong! With 24 hours of school each week, and countless hours at home working on school work, I am amazed that this thing is still running!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: See my other review for how reliable the rubber feet and grips are.

1 out of 5 eggsNot enough fan power for adequate cooling

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

Pros: None really due to the cons.

Cons: We tried this with various Dell notebooks.

There is one major flaw in this product and that is fan power it is simply too weak. . It does not blow hard enough. When you put your hand on you should really be able to feel it blowing hard - you can't.

You can test the theory of this product yourself before buying. Get your notebook as hot as possible turn it on its side and blow a fan to bottom area (if you dont have a fan wave a magazine) you will see/feel it cool down quickly.
You would expect this product to do the above process but it simply can't. It simply does not have the fan power to provide the cooling air flow needed.

Other Thoughts: Our 'temporary' solution has been for our users to stand the notebooks on their sides at the moment to prevent the heat build up on their base.

4 out of 5 eggsSatisfied

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

Pros: Attractive shape and finish. Solid construction, (except for the fans). Does a great job of cooling. I very happy with it.

Cons: The fans make a rapid pulsing sound which makes them too noisy to run in a quiet room (even on the lowest speed). This flaw is dissapointing but I'm still very happy with the cooler.

Other Thoughts: Dell 1440z notebook, 14in.

5 out of 5 eggsNice cooler, good price

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

Pros: Bottom line is it lowers temps on your notebook. It works! If you have high temps and need to lower your notebook temps this is a good buy.

Works on 13in macbook or 15in macbook very well.

No power cables, plugs directly into a USB port.

Cons: semi awkward when sitting on a couch, but not too big of a deal. Bothers me more than my wife. Just takes a little getting used to I guess.

Other Thoughts: With this her macbook 13in temps are well under 60s at high load on her 13in macbook. They were around 75d. Plus your dont fry your lap.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat investment

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

Pros: This is a very well build, sturdy product...nice to see something not completely made of plastic. I have read good things about Zalman but this is my first purchase. The fans are powerful and operate very quietly as the product name, not so subtly alludes to. I have only maxed out the fans once to see how load they really are; other than that, the mid-range does quite well. The fan speed adjustment is very reactive and it’s very nice that Zalman gives you your USB back :)

Cons: Cord is a little long since my USBs are on the same side...I know this is just being picky.

Other Thoughts: The exit vent holes are only oriented twords the front. Since my notebook fan intake is twords the rear I have to pull my notebook down to get direct flow...again getting really picky.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb cooler

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

Pros: I've been using this cooler for over 2 years and it's still going strong. Keeps my laptop very cool (laptop fan never even comes on).
The angle of the cooler is also really nice for adding some comfort to typing.
Very durable design; this thing easily survived a 3 month journey of mine to Germany.
Not a very big cooler so it's easy to slip into a backpack along with the laptop.
Plugs straight into the laptop via usb to power it so you don't have to haul around an extra power source.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Another great product from Zalman.

5 out of 5 eggs

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

Pros: When I first got my HP dv5t about a year ago, the palmrests got so hot that it was really uncomfortable to use. It was especially bad when playing games, but even an hour or so of normal use caused problems.

This cooler fixed those problems. The palmrests are still a bit warm, but not even close to uncomfortable. I also like the slight tilt upwards that it gives the keyboard. It even has an extra USB port so that you don't lose one, which has worked fine for me. The speed adjustment wheel works nicely, but I've never really needed to turn it down; even at the highest setting, the noise is audible but very quiet.

Cons: If I turn the cooler off and forget to turn it on until my computer is already hot, it has a really hard time cooling it down. Also, it stays on when my computer goes to sleep, which is easy enough to fix but often causes the aforementioned problem.

Other Thoughts: My 15.4 inch widescreen is wider than the cooler, but the rubber feet on the computer's bottom are far enough in from the sides that it fits comfortably.
