Summary: I think the Thermaltake MIGHT be ok for a much smaller laptop, but it is definitely not for a 17" or larger laptop. I purchased it because the spec stated it was 16" wide... NO WAY POSSIBLE. I measured it at barely 14" and that is a stretch because I measured to absolute tip ends. My laptop hangs off at least two inches on both sides. It is also constantly slipping off the pad; I guess because it is far too small. It is also a bit noisy.
Summary: I purchased two, one for my laptop and another for my daughter. Both had issues with frequent overheating, and now neither do. My computer is a desktop replacement and had been running as high as 90 degrees C, now rarely goes over 75. Her computer has yet to have a thermal shutdown since we got the fan. Both units sit on docking stations, and it works well. Great item at a great price.
Summary: Pros: The cooler works really great and keeps the laptop cool. Cons: Unless you are constantly sitting at a table, this cooler will hurt when placed on your legs. It might not be that big of a deal for the winter time, but in the summer time [when this cooler is really needed] your soft pant/skirt fabrics will not protects you from the cooler's bottom all-around edges.
Summary: Yes, extend the life of your laptop by keeping the temperature managed to a lower lever. In electronics world, heat kills, so keeping your equipment cool is paramount. This piece took my Toshiba laptop from running at about 170 Deg F while watching video down to around 150 Deg F. That's significant. The ability to adjust the height to eye level is awesome. It's quieter than most anything else out there, and priced well below anything capable of meeting it's performance.
Summary: it only works with a laptop with a flat bottom, but its perfect for a 15 inch laptop. It will work fine with a 17 inch laptop, its just not wide enough. The fan on this this is great. My 17 inch pavillion has the back battery designed like a back stand to elevate it, so that hangs over the back, or if I sit it correctly on the stand the laptop covers the 2 arms that keep it from sliding off. I reccommend this for a smaller pc, or a pc with a flat bottom.
Summary: I wanted this product for months and it was out of stock. I had to settle for a cheaper one because I desperately needed a cooling fan. Of course, it didn't cool my laptop enough to keep it from powering itself off. Finally, I received an email stating this cooling fan was available so I rushed to return the one I had and ordered this model. Fantastic! It's large and cools wonderfully. I love that I can adjust the speed and that it has the extra USB ports.
