Summary: I have an HP Pavilion G6 and I live in Jamaica which is of a tropical climate. I tend to game a lot and at times it will make my laptop overheat. On one such day it got hot to the point where my laptop actually turned off itself. When I turned it back on a message came up saying that it was turned off due to overheating. So then I started to do a bit of research and found out about Laptop Coolers.
Summary: It has adjustable heights, cooling fan works great at keeping laptop cool and it has the tabs so the laptop doesn't slip down. The only downside is using it in your lap with shorts on doesn't work well. The tabs on the cooler tend to dig into your legs. It is not as noticeable with long pants. I am very pleased with this product.
Summary: My laptop has an extended battery which lifts it up a bit and that definitely helps airflow. Your results may not be as good with less airflow. I will say that without this cooler this laptop is basically unusable as an actually lap faring laptop as it burns your legs *and* your left wrist. It gets that rediculously hot and that's with very little CPU/GPU usage. Terrible design really. With this cooler (even with it bottomed out and on my lap) it's very pleasant to use.
Pros: Successfully cools what has to be the hottest (non-gaming) laptop ever made: The HP Envy 17 (first edition). Will work fine on your lap.
Cons: My 17" laptop hangs off both sides. This doesn't affect the cooling too bad though since the one big fan sends air out in all directions so it hits those edges quite well. Although this will work on your lap, it's not designed to so it does dig in a little bit. I'm going to put soft pads under it to fix it.
Summary: I have a 17 inch HP laptop that heats up pretty bad when playing graphic intense games. I love how the cooler lifts the back of the laptop up and allows more cold air for the giant fan to suck up.
Summary: If this had been quiet, I would have kept using it, but once I fixed my laptop fan I returned it. As usual, you get what you pay for, so if you really need a laptop cooler, spring for the more expensive ones that are mostly made of metal.
Pros: Cools adequately. My Samsung laptop got dropped and the fan stopped working. While waiting for a new fan, I bought one of these. It did the job, cooling the laptop back down to acceptable range.
Cons: It's mostly plastic and flimsy. The fan sometimes ticks against the case, sometimes it has an odd low hum. I tried various ways of keeping things quiet, but it's too noisy for such a nice big fan at low RPMs.
Summary: Great cooler for a laptop. The fan runs smoothly and quiet. My computer runs about 11 degrees cooler now. However it could have been a little bigger. Overall a perfect product that gets the job done.
Summary: this is the 1st cooling pad i've ever used/owned. it makes a little bit of noise, but other than that everything is great. i have a HP G62 (15.6"), it fits perfectly on the pad and keeps the computer much cooler. i paid around $30 for this, and i think it works great for what i do on a day-to-day basis.
