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.
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.
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.
