Thermaltake Massive23 LX Notebook Cooler CLN0015
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Decent Inexpensive Cooler 04/11/2014

This review is from: Thermaltake Massive23 LX Notebook Cooler CLN0015

Pros: - Two USB ports provided (so your laptop can power the cooler while still providing a replacement port)
- Nearly silent fan operation
- Decent air throughput
- Designed so you you can use it on nearly any surface or situation and not choke off airflow
- Blue LED option is tranquil and soothing
- Powered by USB, so it'll basically work with anything
- Side 'drawers' to store cables in
- Metal / plastic design (not super-rugged but it'll stand up to light abuse)

Cons: - No fan speed control
- No built-in mousepad / mouse surface

Other Thoughts: This is a great cooler if you have a 17" laptop or bigger - I find my temps are lowered by around 10-15C while this is in use, under a full load on an Asus G60JX Core i7 17" laptop. However, if you have a 15" laptop or smaller, this unit is probably a bit too bulky, and you'd be better served with a smaller cooler that offers a slide-out mousepad surface. This would have gotten a 5 from me if it had that and at least a couple of predefined settings for fan speed control.

This is designed for airflow more than comfort, so if you plan on putting this on your lap, you'll want a blanket or at least a thin lapdesk or something; the bottom isn't flat but has two plastic rails / legs that can dig into your legs after awhile. I find with just a thin blanket it's still comfortable even with a 17" 8lb laptop

Team 32GB microSDHC Flash Card Model TG032G0MC24A

4 out of 5 eggs Good Deal 12/18/2013

This review is from: Team 32GB microSDHC Flash Card Model TG032G0MC24A

Pros: Good deal for mid-grade 32GB SD memory for pretty much any use. Responsive, ubiquitous.

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: Still a performance issue if you're using this in laptops that tend to run hotter, and can damage the lifespan of the memory (though this isn't the memory's fault). It'd be nice if these were a little more resilient vs heat, but this isn't common. Best things you can really do would be replacing rotational drives with SSD, using better thermal paste / heatsink options if avail, and worst case, easing back your laptop's performance options. But noone should have to live like that :P

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model F2-5300CL4D-4GBSQ
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This was purchased to max out a Vostro 1500's ram, and so far, so good. Stable, easy to install.

Cons: Memory timing could be better, but this ram has decent timings for the price.

Other Thoughts: A little more pricey than expected, but given it's a few gens old tech at this point, still a good deal to keep machines of the 2000's running.
