Summary: i got this after getting my first red ring of death. once i got it back i immediately bought this. and its great, although it can get a little loud at first. but, this works great in tandem with a fan in the back as well. plugs into the wall which is what I wanted to help w/ power.
Summary: The green LED diffused through plastic panels on either side look neat. But the fans barely move any air when they're working perfectly; therefore they do not do very much, if any, cooling. And because this is cheap junk, the fans soon won't work perfectly, but will only work very noisily, or not at all. Don't waste your money on this.
Summary: The Cooling station does the job, I can feel the heat moving when I am really hitting the XBOX hard. There are a few cons: The power supply is separate so you have to walk over and turn it on and off every time. The switch is very small and on the back making it a pain if you are using it racked etc. If you can live with that, then get it, it works.
Summary: Have you ever had a game slow down in the middle of some intense action? Get this cooling station, and that will minimize the slowdowns. Heat is the worst enemy of electronics, next to moisture. For the price, it's well worth it. The lighted plates on the sides are nice; they look cool, and let you know the cooling station is on.
Summary: i recieved my item on 4/18/11 two days faster than i expected. the packaging wasn't damaged at all. The stand itself was very clean and ready to go. I placed it under my xbox, plugged it in, and Boom. theres the epic. It glows very brightly. the temperature of my unit stay a few degrees cooler to the touch and I just couldn't be happier. I recommend this to Anyone with an XBOX 360 that plays like its a religion. this will keep your unit cold and ready to go.
A word of advice to help keep your xbox running cool

Summary: I am in the process of purchasing this cooler, so this is not a review of this particular cooler itself. This just seemed like a better choice than attaching other kinds of coolers that install over the top of the internal fans, to me that seems to defeat the purpose of what we are all trying to do. I have had my Xbox360 for 3 years now, and just a month ago I got the 'RROD'; of course this conveniently happens well outside Microsoft's warranty period.
