Conclusion: Final thoughts Only so much can be said about a notebook cooler, as it has one particular job to do and the Antec Notebook Cooler 200 does exactly that. It comes equipped with two fan speed settings to appeal to all users and is all encased in a stylish design that sits comfortably on a flat surface as well as your lap.
Pros: Prolongs the life of your notebook/laptop, Barely audible, Stylish, Blue LEDs, Comfortable to use, Keeps vital components cool
Cons: Could be considered expensive, Quite chunky, Not easily transported due to size
Excerpt: Gaming with a laptop computer is becoming more prevalent every day. I mean, if you want an i7 processor and a fast GPU, it seems there are many offerings out there built like this. The screens are getting bigger, the resolution higher, and with that and the demand of newer game titles, it can really work the laptop into a heated frenzy.
Excerpt: We are all used to the Antec name and the products we have all had in our own rigs over the years. I remember buying a Neo Power PSU, 500W if I remember correctly. Long story short, the PSU let the magic smoke escape, but Antec handled the situation quickly and within a few days I had a brand new power supply. When it came to choosing a chassis shortly after, I again went back to Antec; finding a version 2 Antec 900 at my local Best Buy.
Summary: The Antec Notebook Cooler Basic offers a simple, low-priced way to cut a few degrees off your temperatures while making no noise, though it should be noted that air-cooled solutions are available for a little more.
Summary: The Antec Designer is simple yet with a touch of style. It cooled the laptop a little bit but left some to be desired, it should be mentioned that most laptop coolers are just as ineffective. I can’t think of a laptop that would blow out the air from the bottom so it would be hard to find something that matches for optimum airflow. The wire guide and a little raise were nice things for this cooling pad that can be appreciated.
Conclusion: Antec did their research with this notebook cooler. They used all the important factors in convection cooling to get large cooling with minimal power. In all tests the power stayed well under the specified values. The degrees of cooling using this cooler was up to 60% more than other coolers reviewed on our site. A large front grill with hexagon holes brings attention immediately to the fan.
Pros: Very light, strong frame, Large attractive fan, Top-notch cooling, Fancy blue LED, Low power consumption, Quiet operation
Cons: No USB ports, No ergonomic adjustments, Pricey
Excerpt: At last, a notebook cooler that is actually practical. If anyone is in the market for a notebook cooling solution, your searching is over. This product is small, simple, ergonomic and actually useful. Finally someone realizes that you don't have to use a huge metal pad to cool a laptop accordingly.
Excerpt: In today's market, buying a laptop is no easier than picking out parts for a new PC, but generally there are two main categories: mobility and powerhouse. Fortunately highly mobile, lightweight, low power consumption notebooks are becoming more widely available with each passing day, but there's always going to be a bigger, better (albeit power hungry and heat guzzling) desktop replacement.
Pros: High quality design, Matches laptops well, Pass-through USB connector, Has on/off switch and LED for easy regulation, Lowers temperatures (obviously)
Cons: Thick USB connector, No convection, Fans need to blow air, Less cooling than expected, Moderate noise level, Can be pricey ($20-40 depending on vendor and color choice)
Excerpt: There two general names for the class of the typical portable computers you see everyday and they are laptop and notebook. An older name, laptop used to be much more common than the term notebook. As the term implies, laptop computers were able to be used while on a user's lap. But this isn't the case anymore. With further miniaturization of components, packing more powerful parts in denser packages generally results in heat issues.
