Summary: I have used laptop fans in the past and they have broken within weeks. I use this one 24 hours a day, and it is still kicking and going on strong. My only thing is the light on the side, it is really bright especially at night, besides that it is a great fan.
Summary: One of the better notebook cooler I have had. The zalman NC2000 provides great air flow to the laptop with a reasonable amount of noise coming from it. It is very light in weight and the quality of the product is excellent. I would recommend anyone who plans to game should consider this cooler.
Summary: If you need a laptop cooler, this is definitely one of the better ones to get. However at 50 bucks, it's quite costly.
Pros: It keeps my laptop 10°C cooler under load and also has an extra usb port in the back to make up for the one you lose. The aluminum on this cooler is the reason why the laptop stays so cool. There is no reason to increase the fan speed on this cooler, leaving it at the minimum RPM will do an excellent job. I didn't notice any chance when I set the fan speed to a higher RPM
Cons: -Not the "quiet" I was expecting, but its hardly noticeable., -50 bucks + shipping?!
Excerpt: The Zalman ZM-NC2000 Notebook Cooler is a very important laptop accessory. The purpose is pretty simple actually. This notebook cooler is designed to get rid of heat built up in my laptop. I have a laptop that gets fairly hot after an hour of usage. To me, it would be nice to be able to remove the heat. In this case, the Zalman notebook cooler gets the job done. This notebook cooler actually fits most laptops.
Summary: All in all this is a great cooler. The aluminum body provides a sturdy stand and also stays very cool. I've been able to run games on my laptop (Deus Ex: HR and Assassin's Creed II )without exceeding 70*C on a Dell 1640.
