Excerpt: I bought this cooling pad 3/10/14 it quit working on 4/16 I plugged it on the other USB ports as well as the outlet, anyways trying to return this item will cost in shipping charges both ways Belkin will ask for credit card to charge for shipping. I personally think they should pay for all shipping charges since the product is defective esp.
Excerpt: I used one of these Belkin coolers with a laptop for a couple of years. Over the past 6 months, the fan blades began breaking off one at a time (like losing teeth). I didn't realize what was happening until I noticed how HOT my laptop was. I discovered one of the broken blades was wedged in such a way as to stop the fan from rotating. Last week it was down to just 4 blades so I tossed it ... to be replaced with an Antec.
Excerpt: We ordered this laptop cooling pad to replace the last one that died (Antec brand). It worked great for a few months and suddenly stopped working. It was only used at the office, on the same desk. Guess we just have bad luck with cooling pads.
Excerpt: Had two of these fans. First one got very, very noisy when I cleaned it. Called Belkin, they sent me a new one and once again when I gave it a shot of canned air to get all the dust out of the fan and plugged it back into my computer, it was just as noisy as the first one.
Excerpt: Also good to use with a DVR, mine is kept under the TV in a cubby that doesn't get enough air circulation, which causes it to freeze up and needs to be reset at least once every other week. I haven't had to reset the DVR once since I hooked up the cooling pad. Not just for laptops . . . .
