1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy. Stopped working after 2 weeks

This review is from: ZALMAN Notebook Cooler ZM-NC2000 Black

Pros: none. it worked well for the first two weeks and it kept my laptop cool while it worked, which was for about two weeks of non-consecutive use. During that time, my laptop stopped freezing due to overheating that was happening to my DELL XPS 17 inch 1730 Laptop equipped with a separate graphics card.

It was silent when it worked, which was nice... during the two weeks of life of this expensive, and useless product.

Cons: Horrible durability. Do not buy this. With no further notice, after barely a couple weeks of use, the fan speeds dropped dramatically, and the cooler stopped working properly to the point that it will not cool off anything and my laptop is back to freezing and shutting down unexpectedly due to overheating.

Fanning the laptop with your own hand would be more efficient than this, since the air flow produced by the Zalman ZM-NC2000 won't even lift a paper off the cooler, and I can lower the temperature of my laptop more with a paper fan or blowing air straight from my lungs than what the ZM-NC2000 will do.

After it went bad in just a few days of use, I got angry with it, shelved it, and decided to never buy again these expensive, useless Zalman products. This was a complete waste of my $59.99. Stay Away.

Other Thoughts: buy anything else.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent!

This review is from: ZALMAN Notebook Cooler ZM-NC2000 Black

Pros: Nice, pure aluminum flat surface. Still works even after over a couple years of almost daily use! Light weight and i slide it into my PC case after use.

Cons: None I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I bought because I drive truck and my laptop vents happen to be on the bottom of the PC, and lying in the bunk with it on the blankets it would get really hot while playing games.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

This review is from: ZALMAN Notebook Cooler ZM-NC2000 Black

Pros: I have used this thing for several years now. I originally bought it for my mother but she stopped using it and I dumped my cooler master and snagged it from her. I have been heavily using this thing for several years now, gaming and doing animation/music production on my 15in macbook pro. The fans arent exactly in the right place for a macbook but the aluminum draws the heat out very well and the little cord holder on the underside of this thing is very useful when traveling.

Cons: Very large and will not fit in my backpack/laptop bag, but I guess thats not a bad con if your on a 17in laptop, then you probably need all the space.

Other Thoughts: I like to bring my laptop places and use this, but its a little large. I mean thats what laptops are for right, bringing different places?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cooler

This review is from: ZALMAN Notebook Cooler ZM-NC2000 Black

Pros: Had this cooler for nearly two years. Used it for my Dell 17" Gaming Laptop. Had my ATI Mobility Radeon 3650 overclocked to 550 Core GPU as well as memory overclocked. Noticed that with this laptop cooler temperature dropped 5-10 degrees celsius. During Gaming session prior, laptop would shutdown when it reached a certain temperature. But with this cooler with the fans set to max on the cooler this hasn't happened once as far as I can recall. Also, it fits 17" Gaming laptops fine. Had a KINAMAX President Notebook Cooler Pad w/3 Built-in 60mm Fans and it sucked bad. Hardly cooled the laptop, fans stopped working, was a waste of $20 dollars. This laptop cooler is a night and day difference. It goes to show, you get what you pay for.

Cons: It would be nice if one can increase the fan speed even more. Was a bit more expensive when I brought it ($59.99), would have been nice if I could have gotten it at the price it is now.

Other Thoughts: Would highly recommend it to people who regularly game on their laptops.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat (sealed) cooler

This review is from: ZALMAN Notebook Cooler ZM-NC2000 Black

Pros: -Has worked for over 5 years
-Kept laptop cool
-Produced breathing for my Asus laptop's under-side intake by elevating it at an angle. Consequently this made using the keyboard easier as well.
-Not too expensive (several years ago I purchased for ~$60). It was worth it for piece of mind.

Cons: -Minus one egg because on my unit, the fans cannot be changed. This was a big con because after several years of use (5+ @ almost 24/7 operation) just about anyone could use some new fan in there. All fans have a limit to their useful life before they start to break down/make NOISE.
- The side blue LED is really bright. I covered this up with black electrical tape. Not really worth one less egg, but be aware of this.

Other Thoughts: I've convinced that this cooler played a role in keeping my laptop in good shape for over five years -- a pretty big deal since I was in college and had limited budget.
This unit used to faithfully service my Asus laptop through all sorts of abuse, but now that laptop has been re-purposed into a wireless HTPC (obviously, it can handle 1080p still, but I also now own a Macbook Retina 13" and a mITX rig now).

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of Junk

This review is from: ZALMAN Notebook Cooler ZM-NC2000 Black

Pros: Buyer beware! If you have 50 bucks to throw away, then this is the way to go.This cooler worked up to 32 days and then just died on me! I used to buy Zalman products to build my computers, but NO MORE! I am upset by the bad quality of their products as they are cheaply made for high prices. I will buy from a company that has better Quality Control!

Cons: Cheaply made!

Other Thoughts: There are other reputable companies where I will continue to buy from.

4 out of 5 eggsCooling by the numbers...

This review is from: ZALMAN Notebook Cooler ZM-NC2000 Black

Pros: Seems that this does, in fact, cool my laptop!
CPU temps seem to drop about 13-15C (see stats below)
I am running a Dell Latitude E6500 Dual Core 2.4Ghz, 4G Mem, Win7 x64
The entire platform is cool to the touch, and it keeps my keyboard cooler when under load as well as my legs.
The extra USB port is nice, as well as the power light and USB cord storage. Nothing has broken yet, unlike previous coolers.
I will add the cooling stats below.

Cons: The platform IS plastic (I would've preferred a metal surface).
If it matters to you, and you keep this running under a laptop in your bedroom, the power light is quite bright, and the fan noise is noticeable.
The fold-able foot pegs are easily collapsible, sometimes irritating.
Last, I would've preferred larger fans, as i always keep the cooler on HIGH.

Other Thoughts: - Light-Med Load (Outlook, 2 Word docs, Skype, Firefox (2 windows, 13 tabs), CPUID HWMonitor)
CPU usage 30%-50%,
Memory usage 65%
-- Cooler On (full)
CPU 45C 113F
DIMM 41C 105F
Chipset 46C 114F

-- Cooler Off
CPU 58C 135F
DIMM 47C 116F
Chipset 56C 133F


- Heavy Load (all above + running Virtual machine & streaming Hulu)
CPU usage 85%-100%,
Memory usage 88%
-- Cooler On (full)
CPU 50C 121F
DIMM 42C 107F
Chipset 47C 116F

-- Cooler Off
CPU 64C 144F
DIMM 51C 123F
Chipset 58C 136F
