This review is from: Thermaltake Massive23 LX Notebook Cooler CLN0015
Pros: HUGE fan! My lap gets cold at first then warm with all the hot air it pulls from my laptop!
Blue LED light
Great angle (it's forward sloping)
extra USB slot for the one you lose
Cons: The USB cord. It works fine, but it is way too short. I mean 6 inches isn't realistically long enough. I didn't feel like sacrificing a 3.0 port just for the fan so I ended up buying a usb extension cable. If you read this review, do yourself a favor and buy a longer usb cable too.
Other Thoughts: Overall I'm pretty impressed with the fan. My laptop is a mid tier gaming laptop and get's hot after a while even with simple games like Terraria. This fan keeps the temps at a more tolerable level allowing me to extend my playing by a couple hours. I didn't mention the on/off switch in either pro or con because the fan and my laptop stay plugged in and on most of the time so I don't have a real need for it. I have messed around with it and it works. Not much more I can say about it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 6GB memory
Nvidia dedicated GPU
Intel i5 w/ boost up to 3.2 Ghz (haven't tried yet)
DVD super multi
Multi card reader
Runs games fairly well. So far I've played Terraria, Jagged Alliance Online, Vindictus, A.R.E.S, and plan on trying out many more. The ones I have played are actually running full graphics without a hiccup! (that may not be saying much though! :P)
A lot more that are listed in the specs!
Cons: Windows 8 - I'm getting used to it, but, I don't get why MS has to push an OS meant for touch sensitive hardware on something that doesn't utilize that tech. Win 7 works just fine. Oh well. What else can you expect from a company that monopolizes the OS for PC. Like I said. I'm slooooowly getting used to the feel of it.
5400 rpm HDD. We're in the 21st century. Let's act like it. 5400 is waaaay outdated. But hey, with all the other great tech they did put in, they had to cut a corner somewhere. Overall I'm not horribly upset, but that is the second thing I would have changed, the first being the OS. That and the laptop doesn't pay my bills (yet, muahahah)
Other Thoughts: Overall I'm happy with my selection, and I'm glad that it lived up to all the specs I read about. Sure this isn't the most extreme gaming laptop, but it works great for light or less graphic demanding new gen games. I would label this laptop as more of an all around entertainment laptop. You can do a little bit of everything on it. In MHO for what else is out there this laptop is the best bang for your buck. If you're deciding between this and a similarly priced laptop, just get this one. It isn't overloaded with bloatware and anything you get with a preinstalled OS is going to be Windows 8. If you hate it that much just install win 7 and be on your merry way.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AeroCool Shark 120mm Black Edition 120mm Case cooler
Pros: -Sweet fin design
-Really quiet and efficient if that's what you're looking for
*Awesome wire sleeves!
Cons: The lifespan wasn't quite what I expected. No wonder most of these companies make their warranties 1 year :(
Other Thoughts: This is an awesome fan! I had an intake/exhaust set up with a pair of these. One for the front of the case to pull and the other in the back of the case for exhaust. Well a little over two years the exhaust finally blew. Luckily I was cleaning my case pretty regularly so I know it wasn't from excessive dust. It started making a horrible rattling sound and the fan was hardly moving. I was hoping for a better lifespan, especially with this being a fluid bearing type fan. I'm currently debating weather to purchase another one or try a different brand.READ FULL REVIEW
