Summary: This is a decent cooling pad, the noise was higher than I was expecting (but still lower than my Lenovo 510p on when the fans are on full blast). It is huge! I like that I can turn the LEDs off since there is no point to them (you can't see them when the laptop is on the pad).
Pros: Cools well, hand cooler works ok, cable management, can disable LEDs
Cons: huge! Not as quiet as I would like, doesn't cool as well as I would like.
Summary: This provides adequate cooling to my laptop. One of the lights didn't work but since it is covered most of the time, it didn't really matter to me. The fans are really loud, and occasionally it sounds as if the fan is hitting up against the sides, making a scraping noise.
Pros: Great cooling, Ergonomic tilt, Extra USB port to compensate for the one used, Fan control
Cons: One light didn't work, Loud fans, Occasional unusual fan noise
Summary: I own a 17 inch laptop, HP DV7 series. Had a few issues with overheating during gaming and bought this to disperse heat around the video card - Works like a dream quiet dependable and the laptop will not slip off the platform, Barely fits my laptop but is not top heavy.
Summary: Worth the extra $$. Have tried a cheaper cooler master & another. This is very quiet and effective, also nice tilt angle for typing. More sturdy than others and has better USB connection - - does not interfere with bottom of fan and the extra USB slot is on unit, also more sturdy than others.
Summary: The fan moves enough air to cool my notebook, but not enough to be ridiculously loud. The blue glow is nice, but I find it's mostly covered so it doesn't really show up that well. The fan controller could be good, however I didn't notice much of a difference between lowest and highest settings.
Summary: its bulky... the fan does really works in lowering the laptops temp (Dell XPS 1502) with an larger battery.. the larger battery make it a lil easier to see the blue glowing fan from the side. if your gonna put in your backpack.. its large..
