Decent cooler with SATAII bay

Timothy H., Newegg
10 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this for my Lenovo Y510P with dual GT750M cards and it keeps those and the most of the whole bottom cool. The USB2 and SATAII are a buzzkill. I'm tempted to "upgrade" them to USB3 and SATAIII but don't want to void my warranty just yet.
  • Pros: Very quiet, excellent cooling, Only cooler I found on Newegg with a built in 2.5" HDD/SSD bay, 3 USB2 ports on back, rear facing fans, cools the entire bottom of the Notebook, Adjustable fan speed control but very quiet on highest setting, sucks air in from back and out through the top, comes wit...
  • Cons: Bulky, USB2, SATAII, Y USB input connectors are fat and won't fit side by side in my Lenovo Y510P, heavy. So I just use one in a USB3 port which provides plenty of power.

Great for backups and use on carpet/blankets

CURTIS H., Newegg
22 June 2011
  • Summary: Like I said, consider a rear air intake if you're going to use any cooler on thicker carpeting, blanketing, etc. The cooler also makes a stable platform if you have to work on top of a pile of clothes -- what? no, not me personally - but you know, in case the laundry backs up... in theory.
  • Pros: I upgraded the HDD on my 15" Vaio after cloning to the new drive (Acronis True Image), I stuck the old one in the cooler's drive bay use it for backup purposes. I also needed something that had a rear air intake so I could use the cooler/notebook combo on thicker carpeting, couch cushions or quil...
  • Cons: Unit does not come with an AC-to-DC power adapter. Although these are readily available (or get a universal adapter and set to 5V DC/200 mA), and not necessary for out-of-the-box usage, it would be a convenient accessory to include. Also, without the independent 5V power feed, I had trouble using...

good options, if they work

Anonymous, Newegg
14 January 2011
  • Summary: looks good on outside, pcb quality could have been better. especially for the price. looked on forums and saw others saying that the sata controller pcb has really bad soldering and this is what caused the laptop to power off. at least i am not the only one with this problem.
  • Pros: actually cools notebook. I use it on the asus g73jh(BB model)and keeps system 10c cooler then without under load. really for cooling hd and ram as this notebook cools cpu/gpu through top vents and out the back.
  • Cons: power cable that comes with unit does not work or cooler is faulty. when i plug it into the laptop it shorts out my laptop as if there was no power to it. luckily i have a 5v supply on my card reader on my desktop so i ran the fans off that. no clue if hd bay works as i am afraid to plug in the usb.

works well for me!

Carolyn D., Newegg
7 November 2010
  • Summary: The other reviewer mentioned that the plastic was cheap. It is lightweight, so I do not know how it would travel. But it is sturdy and works perfectly fine sitting on a desk.
  • Pros: Works like a docking station... I can plug all my peripherals into the cooler via USB and then have one USB from my laptop to the cooler. I just installed a SATA hard drive; works GREAT for making backups and it doesn't add more "stuff" to my desk. Large enough for my 17.3" laptop. I can adjust t...
  • Cons: I recently purchased a power adapter, since I was going to use the hard drive bay and I thought it would perform better with more power. It works great, but there is no easy way to turn it off after I power down my laptop, except for unplugging it.

  • Summary: Do not buy this- I have my RMA already
  • Pros: Usb 2.0 ports in the back, right size for a 17"
  • Cons: Horrible air movement- even at highest speed cant feel anything move. Laptop was not cooling down at all. Has a port for a electric connector- but no power brick. Really cheap plastic. Had to light matches to even be sure it was displacing air.

- Ottimo supporto

alessandroilgrande, Ciao
25 January 2015
  • Summary: Buona sera a tutti e buona domenica. Quanti di voi si collegano a Ciao utilizzando un notebook (Pc portatile)? Immagino molti, forse la gran parte. Come lo utilizzate? Lo posizionate semplicemente sul tavolo o scrivania? Lo tenete sulle gambe seduti comodamente sul divano?
  • Pros: Ergonomico, funzione HUB
  • Cons: Prezzo

Подставка для ноутбука Zalman Plus Black (ZM-NC2500 Plus)

RU, elmir
8 February 2014
  • Summary: Очень, очень... ОЧЕНЬ меня порадовал сей девайс. Приятно удивило поддержка 2.5" S-ATA HDD (Готов к использованию Hot-swap)и дополнительное подключение питания на коммутаторе. Единственным недостатком было отсутствие оригинального Zalman USB адаптора в вашем магазине.
