Excerpt: The ZM-NC1000 is a very well built piece of notebook cooling hardware. But what it gains in performance, it loses in bulk and weight. If you are in the market for a cooling option for the road, then just keep on searching. This big boy weighs in at over 2.5lbs an when you add that kind of weight to an already loaded laptop bag, then expect a chore when you are lugging this around an airport.
Summary: The ZM-NC1000 has a thick aluminum top plate that is sloped at a nice angle to prevent undue wrist strain. The cooler feels moderately heavy and shows good build quality. The notebook platform has a long, soft rubber strip that helps your laptop grip and stay in place. At the top back of the unit you can see another couple rubber pads to help your notebook remain in place.
Pros: Solid aluminum construction of the notebook platform., Centrifugal fans provide quiet and even air distribution., USB powered with an extra USB2.0 port., Adjustable fan control with on/off switch.
Cons: High Speed makes more noise than the laptop without a cooler.
