Summary: You can put a piece of paper on the fan and it wouldnt move off if the fan wasn't at an angle. I would be seriously considering taking this thing apart to replace the fan if it didn't look so cool and taking it apart requires removing some of the rubbers.
Pros: its a great laptop platform, well made. The laptop wont slip, and the platform grips the table well. It also looks cool.
Cons: The fan is about as useless as anyone says. I was trying to get a cooler that would make my hand feel less hot on a HP dv6 2nd gen i7 and 6770m. dropped the temps on each about 7C. Still feels hot on my hand. cpu:60->53 idle, 83->77 , gpu: 70->65, 103->95C
Summary: Maybe I just got unlucky, but this lowers my opinion of the Thermaltake brand overall. I expected better.
Pros: Seems sturdy. The fan spins, and it's got a pretty light.
Cons: The metal grill is only part of the top surface, offering no structurual support. Mine came with a rattling piece that was probably part of the rear door's hinge assembly. It took a lot of prying and pulling to get that little thing out of the fan's working area. Shouldn't affect the stand's perf...
Pros: its really comfortable and convenient when having to move around
Cons: it barely fits my 15.6" msi g series laptop. there's no way it will fit a 17" laptop, so if you have a laptop bigger then 15.6" you need a bigger cooling station. the fan is slow and doesn't move as much air as id like.
Summary: Some of the reviews says it pushes air, and some doesn't. Some said it works for gaming laptops and some didn't. It was hard to get a solid answer in the reviews. I love the design of the cooler, but that fan sucks. I am going to take it apart and install a beefier fan in it.
Pros: I bought this for my LENOVO Y500 gaming laptop.Great design. Does it work? yes, i have had 6-7hr gaming sessions with little problems. A few times i had to Alt+tab to go to desktop and let the laptop cool down for a few minutes. As a everyday internet use laptop, this will do just fine.
Cons: It does not push enough air for a gaming laptop. The LENOVO Y500 has a huge air intake and enough stock cooling to handle itself. But any gamer would invest in a $30-$40 cooler for their $1000+ laptop for extra insurance.
Summary: So basically this laptop cooler works pretty well for most laptops but if you have the massive junk asus g73jh, then it will not cool it for whatever reason. I handed this cooler off to my sister and it seemed to work perfectly fine for her. It reduced the heating problem for her laptop. ps.
Pros: Nice for most laptops
Cons: Will NOT be very good for cooling the asus g73jh
Summary: I wonder if this can be hacked to move the fan faster?
Pros: It's *QUIET* when it's running. Appearance-wise, it's a cool looking cooler and fits my 15.6 laptop perfectly. Handles on the side are useful for moving the laptop and the cooler together. Sent in the rebate 10 days ago and today I got an email saying they received my submission.
Cons: Air. This thing needs to move more air considering the size of its fan. You can feel a slight breeze on the side of the cooler but little or hardly enough blowing on the surface to cool the laptop. I have a coolermaster x-slim with a 160mm fan that blows more air than this.
Pros: its solid and built well to a point "see cons" and does an ok job at cooling my notebook down by about 4-5 degrees but theres better out there
Cons: theres an annoying clicking sound coming from the fan when i put the notebook on it,it stops when i take it off,they should have put spacers on this thing too keep it from compressing down against the fan,thats what the problem is.
