Pros: In addition to this model, I have purchased several Intel's SSDs which are all running incredibly reliable and the data transfer was a breeze. So far so good.
Cons: The plastic SSD plate (?) should be preinstalled. Data migration tool is only available to Intel SSDs. Really?READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: USB cable socket was destroyed after few months of use. Soldering was poorly done and the wiring disintegrated.
The mount was dangling and the phone was facing downwards.
Other Thoughts: You get what you paid for. If you are going to use a feature for a long time, invest on something that will last.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN High Performance Notebook Cooler NC11
Pros: - Very quiet. Difficult to hear the fan spinning.
- Cools down my Mac Book Pro by 2-3C under full load
- Cools down my ancient DELL laptop by 5-6C under full load
- Can't beat the price!
- Can feel the cold air blowing around my hands - always a nice feeling when the keyboard is getting warm.
Cons: - Fan does not cover larger laptops with 17" screens or larger. Surely they must be a way to cover the whole pad.
- Only two USB ports available.
Other Thoughts: It seems like I have a very different experience with others so I will like to point out several things that some people are not aware of:
1. Per USB specification, laptop coolers powered by laptops uses no more than 6W (5V@0.4-0.9A). Expecting any laptop coolers to have a bone freezing super incredible cooling performance is an ambitious idea (Zalman or otherwise).
2. Thanks to Intel and AMD's engineers, mobile CPUs/GPUs will no longer generate scorching heat in contrast to 5-6 years ago. Laptop coolers nowadays are for peace of mind; not a necessity.
3. Big and slow fans are better than small and fast. What matters is the total airflow (CFM).
4. This cooler doesn't suck out heat as some stated (it's the opposite). It is far more efficient to blow cold air to a hot surface.
