Conclusion: This is a very nice laptop cooler, although I wish they would have put some more effort into the bottom part. I love the feature of moving fans it really makes the unit more usable than traditional laptop coolers.
Summary: Testing & Conclusion
The NZXT Cyro E-40 Laptop Cooler is a top notch product. Not only is it a 100% portable laptop cooler, it is light weight and has a solid build construction. The fans are very quiet and the ability to move them on the metal grid to any position under the laptop is an amazing way to optimize cooling.
All that being said I think you need to understand that this is a $30 cooler and might not be optimized for your specific needs.
Summary: The $27.99 NZXT Cryo E40 has an innovative design, but unfortunately falls flat in delivery. The magnets, while safe for electronics, are too weak to properly hold the cooler together and the fan locations are limited due to a cord that's short. This device was also the least effective in actually cooling a notebook.
Pros: Movable fans
Cons: Weak magnets, Poor design, Short cables, Heavy
Conclusion: NZXT are a company targeted more at gamers and enthusiasts than just your average notebook user. That’s why when we received the Cryo E40 from NZXT and had a look at it, we could see straight away it was designed from the ground up with advanced cooling performance in mind.
Summary: The NZXT Cryo E40 Notebook Cooler fits 15" laptops and has a very innovative design. it comes with two USB powered 80mm fans, lots of ventilation, rubber supports and feet. The fans and top panel are held into place with magnets. Fans can be repositioned anywhere to accommodate the laptops intake fan(s).
Excerpt: With the availability of iPads, netbooks, tablets, and smartphones nowadays, it doesn’t leave much room for our older laptops. Everything has become smaller, thinner, lighter, has better battery life and virtually no heat output. However, if you are like me and still have an older laptop or notebook in your arsenal of electronics then you should know that the older laptops have a tendency to generate that unwelcoming bottom heat.
Pros: Lightweight., Configurable fan placement., Sturdy.
Conclusion: Ob das E40 ein lohnenswerter Kauf ist, hängt vom Notebook ab. Trotz durchwegs ausgezeichneter Verarbeitung, Vielseitigkeit und ausgezeichnetem Design des NZXT Kühlers, kann er je nach Notebook unterschiedlich effektiv sein. Mit unserem Samsung Testmodell beispielsweise funktioniert er sehr gut, da die zusätzlichen Lüfter des E40 Kühlers die internen Systemlüfter und den Prozessor via direktem Luftstrom erreichen können.
