  • Summary: It's a great product for its price, solid and great for someone like me who just needed to elevate his laptop to match a secondary monitor setup.
  • Pros: Hosts adequate features for its pricing range, durable cabling, easy to adjust and highly resistant to shaking.
  • Cons: Only useful for input devices such as mouse, keyboard, graphics tablet or powering your phone. Did not work with any data transmission devices (usb HDD's, Thumbdrivers or smart phones (data transfer mode). Also, the fan slows down considerably when more than 2~ usb devices are plugged in. This isn't that much of a problem since I have the fan turned off because my laptop has the air intakes positioned at the very

  • Summary: Got this for 28 - 8 mir. Have never owned a laptop cooler before so no point of comparison, but otherwise this has drop ped my crappy dell laptop's temperature by at least 10 degrees. Before this the laptop would overheat under a slightly heavier load and the cpu would drop  down to a much lower speed. The only complaint is the placement of the power button makes it a little hard to reach.
  • Pros: Dropped temperature by 10-20 degrees
  • Cons: Have to reach below the laptop for the power button and usb ports

  • Summary: Overall, I am quite satisfied with this product. A USB port on my Macbook died, so being able to add 4 USB ports was certainly helpful. However, to really maximize the usefulness of this item, it's best to buy an AC adapter to power the USB hub. Without the adapter I can sync my iPod (but not charge), use my keyboard, mouse and multi-function printer. Adding the AC adapter allows me to attach my external HD for the Time Machine back-ups, which is quite handy!
  • Pros: - USB hub, - Good cooling performance
  • Cons: - Difficult to get at the power button, fan speed dial + USB ports

  • Summary: If you are using your laptop like a desktop hooked up to a monitor (my Dell Studio 14") and your laptop heats up sitting on the desk (especially a wooden desk) - INVEST IN THIS UNIT ! Here's more details. I use my laptop like a desktop with a monitor and occasionally take it out with me. I have a few USB devices connected (Keyboard/Mouse, Graphics Tablet, USB Storage).
  • Pros: It works (Internal temp cooler by around 10C). Cable Management. Great price $30. Height Adjustments. Super Quiet. Manual Speed Control. Excellent Build. Fits most laptops. 4 USB Hub
  • Cons: Doesn't come with a power adapter or a USB Y Cable. Bulky and not really usable on lap. Controls and USB hub not exactly easy to reach. Lack of automated speed based on temperature.

  • Summary: Works very nicely with my 11.6" netbook and my 15.6" Laptop. Very happy with my purchase and definitely a product to recommend for laptop users!
  • Pros: + Nice Price-point of $29.99, + Wanted something like this for cheap for a longtime!, + Love the adjustable heights, + Fairly light
  • Cons: - the rubber stops at the bottom are removable and hence fall out easily, I can see them getting lost easily

  • Summary: I've been very satisfied with this laptop dock, it keeps my computer cool even during CPU demanding tasks. One turn down is the lack of an AC adapter by default. Using the fan at its maximum will cause a MacBook to throttle (not enough power?). My ThinkPad X220 has burned in the same context, not sure this is because of the dock, but it doesn't look very good. Be careful if you're going to plug a small low-power laptop and run the fan full speed without the adapter.
  • Pros: Looks good, Robust enough, Integrated fan and USB Hub
  • Cons: No stock adapter, drains juice like mad from your USB

  • Summary: I purchased this Notebook/netbook cooler for my Wife, she's got a 15.6" Sony Notebook that she wanted to prolong the life of by having it constantly cooled. This was recommended by various sources as one of the best Notebook/Netbook coolers around. Time was on my side as at the time of my initial purchase it was $25.99 with MIR of $10 to make it $15.99, I didn't even do the MIR as $25.99 was still a good deal.
  • Pros: Support for Notebook/Netbook computers of various size., Huge 140MM fan for cooling integral parts of Notebook/Netbook computers.
  • Cons: The rubber feet that hold the Notebook/Netbook computer in place are cheaply made, they slide and fall out way too easily., A locking mechanism of some sort would have sufficed for the rubber feet.
