Inexpensive and does the Job

Timothy R., Newegg
10 June 2013
  • Pros: Bought this laptop cooler for an old laptop that the CPU fan had failed on. This is an inexpensive way to get a lot of cooling to the laptop. It is not the best cooler on the market, but a good value for the amount of cooling.
  • Cons: None

Great Product

Brent M., Newegg
28 May 2013
  • Summary: Am going to buy another one after I finish sending this review.
  • Pros: I bought one of these in 2003 and it worked great for 7 years. It had different packaging back then and a different model name but it was the very same design as this model. I thought the airflow from the 4 internal fans was great and enjoyed the variable speed wheel which permitted me to increas...

Good by to Overheating

Mikell T., Newegg
6 August 2011
  • Summary: I purchase the Star Tech notebook cooler for my dish network satellite receiver VIP622. The VIP622 has a severe problem with overheating. I pulled the Notebook cooler out of the box, plugged in the USB cable to the back of the receiver, turned on the cooler, and placed the satellite receiver on top.
  • Pros: 4 fans, USB connection, from box to working product - 30 seconds
  • Cons: Could not find in local stores. S&H made product a little pricy.

Sleek design, but that's about it

Tyler C., Newegg
9 July 2011
  • Pros: It's slender and has nice ventilation (both sides have air intake) and the top is mostly vents so that the air flow isn't being blocked or concentrated on a single spot. 4 fans is nice. Quiet, even on the highest settings.
  • Cons: Even on the highest setting there is barely any airflow; the specs says 40CFMs but I find that to be stretching it. It's more like a very gentle breeze than something substantial. I already have this product: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834998314&cm_re=belkin_laptop_cool...

Broke after a year

Timothy L., Newegg
14 June 2011
  • Pros: Sleek, quiet and keeps the laptop cool and prevents thermal shut downs. Great price.
  • Cons: The cord wore out after a year so now it doesn't turn on. Need to find another USB -- coaxial power adapter. I'll probably just buy another one.

Very Happy!!!

Malak J., Newegg
27 September 2010
  • Summary: Overall can't complain definitely the best bang for your buck... Overall very satisfied and hopefully will last me a long time :-)
  • Pros: -Lightweight -Even keeps laptop cool at low speeds -Cheap Price -The humming fan is lower than more expensive coolers. I've used in the past. -Toggle switch for Speed -Toggle switch for on/off -The wire from the cooler to the USB is long
  • Cons: -Not really a con... a little bit smaller than expected, but my fault for not reading the dimensions of the product first. -Maybe a little flimsy, hopefully more durable than it looks

  • Summary: It's not worth the money if it's going to go toes up after less than 6mos. it did a good job keeping my laptop cool. It still works, sometimes. It's not my computer it's definitely the cooler its self because depending on what position it's in it will work or not work and cuts in and out all the...
