Summary: I just got my cooler and hooked it up. The fans didn't spin so I changed usb ports a couple times. Within a minute I started to smell electrical getting hot. I looked and found smoke coming from the switch. I unplugged it and the switch was almost to hot to hold. Will be taking it back tomorrow and see what I can get.
Summary: When buying this product I couldn't find which direction the fans blow the air, so I bought based on the reviews, that were great. When it came in, however, I found out that it doesn't cool my computer properly, since the fans blow the air up, and not down. And apparently I can change it with a Phillips Screw, but I wish I'd known this earlier.
Summary: I have a laptop that runs hot, figured this would help and had high hopes. Setup was easy, and then took some before/after hardware temperature recordings using HWMonitor. Came up with the exact same temperatures under the exact same conditions. At a closer look, the individual fans don't really put out too much mass-flow. Pretty dissapointed for $30.
Summary: Firstly, i've used this for only a few days but so far it slightly raises my Toshiba Satellite 875D-S7332's temperature instead of lowering it. Turning the fan to max speed does not help. Secondly, I don't know who thought it was a good idea to have a laptop sitting on it at an angle. The computer easily slides inches down and has to be repositioned. I knew it was angled, but I thought it would better grip the laptop to prevent sliding.
