Summary: Zalman is well known for its cooling products and the NC2000 does work quite well. The design ensures that as much area is actively cooled as possible. The sleek design certainly looks great and the ability to adjust fan speed is a welcome addition. The Macbook Pro is a tough notebook to cool, as it does not have any airvents on the underside, but the NC2000 works quite well. The only downside is in fact the unit's bottom.
Pros: Great performance, Can be used actively and passively, USB powered fans included, Power switch for fans, Fan speed can be adjusted, Increases comfort when typing due to tilt, Holds well on desk, Choice between two sizes and colors, Well packaged
Cons: Cannot be transported easily, Price may not be for everyone, Plastic underside in contrast to high quality aluminum top, USB cable compartement does not hold well, Small notebooks will not hold well, if impossible to place on top of anti-skid strips
