4 out of 5 eggs It is what it is 09/22/2012

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


I've owned this thing for a good 6 months. I tried the cooler master 1st, and that was old trusty for about a years and a half, but then it started making this funny noise. I actually fixed the cooler master after buying this, so I guess it's still fine, but this thing is much better. 1st, the fans are adjustable. 2nd, the fan blades are concealed, so having this on your lap won't mess with the cooling fan's blades. It's quiet, it's sexy, and it's at a far better price than the one I bought it at. I was a little worried that it being closed off the way it is would make it dusty and subject to break, but I have yet to experience any such problems, and enough people on here claim they've had it for a long time and it hasn't failed them yet, so I have to trust that.


My cooler master came with a little strap that basically fastens the laptop to the cooling pad. This cooler does not come with this. I hate to deduct an egg over something so petty, especially since I already have the strap, BUT this strap IS NECESSARY. If you've ever tried to pull your laptop open with one hand, and accidentally started tipping it off the back of your cooling pad, you probably understand where I'm coming from. Now I'm sure that if these little straps were sold separately, they would only be a dollar or two, in which case this pad would get 5 eggs, because everything I needed would be readily affordable and available. However, I can't find these straps for the life of me, and after having used one for so long, I can't stand using laptops on cooling pads that lack them.
