Cooler

  • Excerpt: All Gearhead cooling pads work well, as intended. They are not 'whisper' quiet but are not at all noisy. They circulate a lot of air and will cool any problem laptop that is prone to overheating. The firm also has a Lifetime Warranty on this and most of their PC accessories! This one beats all their larger competitors like T..... and B..... with a lower price as well.

GOOD NEWS/BAD NEWS

  • Excerpt: I am on oxygen 24/7 and spend the majority of my day in bed thus need to use laptop and not my desktop computer. I spend a lot of time playing Facebook games like bejewl and word. have to stop after a 1/2 hour or so because of overheating problem -- the cooling pad has helped somewhat. At least it keeps me from overheating!
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Keeps my lap cool, Quiet
  • Cons: Laptop Still Overheats, Unreliable, Weak

Half and Half

  • Excerpt: I just got mine today, and immediately I noticed it worked, but one fan was working REALLY nice, but the other was only about half as effective. Probably just my bad luck, after all If my luck was good, I wouldn't need it.
  • Pros: WORKS REAL WELL
  • Cons: Only half Worked

Gear Head CF3300BLK Dual-Cool II Notebook Cooling Stand

dlk4, Overstock
15 June 2012
  • Summary: I have a laptop with a cooling issue...Saw this product advertised,"fits up to 17 inch". My laptop is 16" wide, and must be supported with spacers to use this cooling stand, or it slides around and off of the cooling stand. IT DOES NOT "FIT". It works, to cool the computer, but I must sit the computer up on four wooden block or books, carefully align the fans of the stand and the laptop.

Gear Head CF3300BLK Dual-Cool II Notebook Cooling Stand

jlfunk, Overstock

  • Summary: This cooling stand greatly reduces the heat of the laptop and the areas underand around the laptop, I am sure it would extend the life of the computer and batteries by reducing heat build up. I also like the lift to the back of the computer. I would recommend one to anyone with a laptop, there were other sizes available.
