Summary: This is a great product at a great price. I'm the secretary for the United Methodist Men at my church. It is light weight and cools great. I pack up my laptop and cooling desk and take it to my meetings. The angle is perfect for typing and it cools great.
Summary: Overall not bad. It provides some heat relief. Angle of cooler master takes a bit to get used to. When I'm not playing games I don't use the Coolermaster because the angle gets a bit annoying. Also never received my $10USD mail in rebate. I always fill them out correctly so still waiting.
Pros: Helps reduce some heat on my laptop
Cons: Could be better at cooling. I notice a slight difference in temperature of laptop exhaust fan. Never received my Mail in Rebate for $10USD. Still waiting.
Summary: It's nice that you can move the fans where you want them. The design is good - the construction is good - but, although it purportedly holds a 17 inch laptop - it really is undersized. The 17 inch laptop hangs over the edges, so it's easy to tip it off the stand. You need to use it with a wireless keyboard, otherwise it tips.
Summary: I haven't used the fans yet as it wasn't really necessary I just needed something to tilt my laptop up so it doesn't do any unnecessary cooling. The stand itself is very useful and sturdy. It fits my 17" MSI GE70 but not perfectly. If the made a bigger one I'd invest in one.
Summary: I don't know much about notebook temperatures because every computer is different but I know that Powerbooks get pretty hot according to google. According to iStat, I've noticed that without the U2 the temp can get as high as 68 when its working hard - 60ish when just running one app. With the U2 the temp hangs around 54-60. These temp readings are for the CPU (top) - the warmest temp recorded.
Pros: Inexpensive, VERY portable, adjustable fans, actually cools, great hight for typing
