Very decent Laptop Cooler that really does run pretty quietly. 6/4/2020 10:26:04 PM

Pros: Very quiet operation.
Excellent heat dissipation.
Also provides proper viewing angle as advertised.

Cons: Rubber feet have a tendency to pop off due to the cheap method used to secure them to the underside of the cooler. Obviously cheap adhesive is the only method the manufacturer decided to use to attach the rubber feet.

Some may wonder why the rubber feet should really matter. They are definitely an important feature to have on this type of product, generally speaking, because when you place your laptop on the cooler itself, the rubber feet provide traction, helping the unit to stay in place without sliding around.

Overall Review: Overall, this is a very nice laptop cooler and had it not been for the seemingly cheap adhesive the manufacturer uses to secure the rubber feet on the front underside of it, I might have given it five stars.

What I would have done, was design the rubber feet to be attached with screws so that they stay in place and will last much longer. Adhesives are often toxic and don't last. Well made products using good old fashion elbow-grease and ingenuity do!

Recommendation to the manufacturer: When you make something this good, you shouldn't cheap out on any aspect of it's design no matter how insignificant it may seem. Really, how costly might it really have been for you to find a more secure way to add rubber feet to this cooler, than the obviously cheap and ineffective adhesive that's currently being used to hold them on-------That's about the only thing on this product that's not cool---Pun intended!

Pros: -Blows extremely cool air (keeps laptop cool even while gaming on a nongaming laptop)
-Very quiet even on max (and cold enough to allow me to keep my internal laptop fan off which is a lot louder)
-Perfect amount of tilt for ease of access (personal preference)
-My Inspiron 1564 stays put reasonably well with rubber stoppers
-Detachable metal vents for easy cleaning
-Lasted me 4 years and counting and performance has not deteriorated
-Sturdy USB cable capable of being bent without wear and tear

Cons: -Short 2.0 USB cable just barely fits
-USB port is only on the back which makes the short cable an even greater flaw
-No convenient way to clean out the fans themselves because they are located in the back and are not detachable as far as I can tell

Overall Review: Overall a long-lasting high performance cooler. Would buy again if I had to make the choice.

Keeps my MacBook Pro cool 5/30/2013 9:52:13 AM

Pros: Keeps my MacBook Pro temps. below 50 degrees on most all levels unless I'm doing some intense apps, like PS and other programs opened up and being consumed at the same time.

Very quiet. Stays quiet without weird noises which I've experienced with other cooling pads.

Cons: None that I can think of except I wish the USB cord that comes with this cooling pad was longer to fit in my USB hub.

Overall Review: None at this time

not properly working 8/2/2012 11:45:11 AM

Pros: it worked for 6 months.

Cons: After 6 months, USB port - power supply port - got loose. I needed to tweak the port with a screw driver every once a while... now it is nearly dead.

Overall Review: i won't buy zalman...

Pros: It cooled well, had an equal distribution of air, and was built well. It worked for almost a year and a half. I game and play media on my laptop (Toshiba Satellite L505) pretty often. The laptop's built-in fans turn on when the Laptop is overheating. With this cooler, the internal laptop fans rarely turned on, only a few sparse times during the summer (which was 100+ degrees where I live and we had no working A/C). My Laptop's temperatures were relatively stable throughout the time it worked. I took good care of this product btw. Never dropped it and always packed it away in my laptop bag during non-use.

Cons: Well not so much a con, but just the result It finally gave out on me at the 17-month mark. The fans would no longer work and my laptop's built-in fans started having to work recently. Time to get a new one!

Overall Review: I feel it was worth the money, but I believe everyone has a different perception on the real value of an item and expected working lifetime for a product.

Good Deal 7/16/2010 1:11:13 PM

Pros: keeps my laptop very cool
good price
provides another usb port
looks nice
adjustable speed
grips laptop well, so it doesn't slip down

Cons: light on back is really bright
mostly plastic, just an aluminum plate where laptop sits
legs aren't retractable, so not fun for use on lap

Overall Review: plastic frame seems sturdy
i think probably the only better cooler on the market is the zalman 2000

Pros: Keeps laptop cool
Extra USB port
Cable Included

Cons: Annoying red light when turned on
Only Cools Bottom

Overall Review: I paired this with my new Asus Ul80vt and It works well. The laptops usb ports turn off in sleep mode, so I dont waste power when the laptop can cool itself. On high setting (which isn't too loud if you use sound) I can keep my laptop cool even when playing games. I should note that the top of my laptop will (keyboard area) still gets very warm after continued use. The feet on the bottom make lap-using uncomfortable but u can position the cooler in between your legs to help a bit.

Nice and cold 6/1/2010 12:37:44 PM

Pros: It does what is says and has a quality feel to it to boot. It actually keeps my laptop so cool it blows onto my hands and keeps me cool as well, not such a bad thing with summer coming up

Cons: The fans may annoy some, but I work with headphones on all day so it's not a big deal. Honestly, even with the headphones off I don't really notice it more than once a day.

Overall Review: Would buy again and recommend to friends
