Summary: I purchased this because I have a Sony Vaio laptop that gets extremely hot very quickly. This unit with it's 230mm fan runs extremely quiet and I have not had a heat related issue since I started using this. I recommend them very highly to my customers for their laptops as well.
Summary: The initial product I received was defective and caused my system to power down, but crib death happens. They replaced it easily and the next one has worked well. It is quiet and draws air well. It has brought my core temps down from the low to mid 60C to an acceptable 50C. It has allowed me to keep working safely!
Summary: Good Cooler Works Great - Had a rattle out of the box - Small chip of plastic loose inside the area around the fan - can not get into the fan itself - Seems to work well for the price - I would purchase another.
Summary: I've owned a number of laptop coolers over the years including Thermal take product, which is now 3 years old and still works fine. This cooler I purchased as a present for my friend and so far it has been great. Great design that actually works.
Summary: I got this on Oct.20 2011 and it has worked good till the last few months. The usb ports have worn out so now have to work with it to get the fan on. But it is a good fan and I am ordering another one. I just wish that the usb cord had a 90 on them so that they don't stick out so far.
