Pros: Keeps my MacBook Pro temps. below 50 degrees on most all levels unless I'm doing some intense apps, like PS and other programs opened up and being consumed at the same time. Very quiet. Stays quiet without weird noises which I've experienced with other cooling pads.
Cons: None that I can think of except I wish the USB cord that comes with this cooling pad was longer to fit in my USB hub.
Summary: I feel it was worth the money, but I believe everyone has a different perception on the real value of an item and expected working lifetime for a product.
Pros: It cooled well, had an equal distribution of air, and was built well. It worked for almost a year and a half. I game and play media on my laptop (Toshiba Satellite L505) pretty often. The laptop's built-in fans turn on when the Laptop is overheating. With this cooler, the internal laptop fans rar...
Cons: Well not so much a con, but just the result It finally gave out on me at the 17-month mark. The fans would no longer work and my laptop's built-in fans started having to work recently. Time to get a new one!
Summary: I paired this with my new Asus Ul80vt and It works well. The laptops usb ports turn off in sleep mode, so I dont waste power when the laptop can cool itself. On high setting (which isn't too loud if you use sound) I can keep my laptop cool even when playing games.
Pros: Keeps laptop cool Extra USB port Cable Included Quiet
Cons: Annoying red light when turned on Only Cools Bottom Feet
Summary: Wish there were some sort of pegs or stopper strip that would keep the laptop from sliding down a bit. There are a couple of rubber strips but they're a little too shallow/thin so they aren't super effective.
Pros: Works, uses USB power, looks nice, quiet.
Cons: Only 1 USB port on back, but I guess you can't put too many as it would exceed output, so a trade off from separate power supply versus USB powered. Laptop tends to slide down a bit.
Cons: The cooler sits at an angle, say 20 degrees or so. with nothing to prevent the laptop from sliding right off of it. since it's at an angle, gravity is of course in the mix, no lip to keep the laptop sitting still when you walk away from it. So i knocked one egg off.
