Didn't last long

Dong L., Newegg
20 June 2014
  • Summary: I should've kept the original packaging. After two weeks, I thought I wouldn't have to return it. I bought a Zalman processor fan 10 years ago and that still works, but now, I will think twice about buying another fan from them.
  • Pros: Did what it's suppose to, it cooled my laptop which has overheating problems leading to shutdowns.
  • Cons: Broke within 2 weeks. The usb was receiving power when I plugged something else on top of the fan's usb plug, but the fan wasn't spinning.

Nice cooler.

Jarrod O., Newegg
22 May 2014
  • Summary: Unlike most other units this one is closed on the bottom as far as the case is concerned. This means you can sit it on your lap without any sharp plastic edges digging into your legs. I bought this mainly so I can work and game with my laptop without burning my legs up.
  • Pros: Lightweight, durable, easy to use, USB pass-through plug, nice color.
  • Cons: Feet fall off after a few days, cheap adhesive used in construction. Easily fixed with hot glue or just left off, does not impede functionality.

Zalman Technology for Laptops

WarEagle, Newegg
4 April 2014
  • Summary: This is quite the good buy and the price is a little higher than what I paid for it. It is quiet and will offer excellent cooling for your laptop.
  • Pros: All aluminum and very light laptop cooler. The fan works very well and it is constructed in a quality manner. This actually helps with my wife's
  • Cons: No ability to change the angle to offer better comfort and control. The rubber non slip grips on the cooler came off and never really gave much grab. Try adding extra rubber anti slip material if able because you will want to.

Great Cooler

Mark from MI, Newegg
2 February 2014
  • Summary: I really like this laptop cooler. I have never really "heard" it. My laptop fan is way louder than the whisper of noise this fan puts out. The fan is slow, quiet, and puts out enough cool air that I have NEVER had a shut down with it on.
  • Pros: Fully covers the entire bottom of my 17"
  • Cons: Skinny power wire from the USB power connector to the fan.

User Review

Tracie B., Newegg
11 December 2013
  • Summary: Wasn't a bad deal when I bought this for my 17" laptop. Works like I had hoped, but the USB plug for fan power sticks out quite a bit. Wouldn't recommend plugging another device into that female port for chances of breaking the port.
  • Pros: Keeps everything fairly cooler. Functions well. Not noisey.
  • Cons: could use some USB ports on the device.

Good buy! 4/5

Seth C., Newegg
26 September 2013
  • Pros: Pushes a good amount of air and stays near silent at the same time and not losing a usb port is a big plus.
  • Cons: Not too much of a con but it doesn't have a fan speed adjuster it doesn't NEED one but it would be a great touch.

Love it

Tyler F., Newegg
9 July 2013
  • Summary: The fan does an awesome job of pulling the hot air down and away from from ancient laptop. The exhaust does get blocked if I use it on my lap, but on a hard surface it's excellent.
  • Pros: Great fan, nice aluminum contruction, solid build, and priced well.
  • Cons: None.

Its ok, Not Good, Not Bad

Don D., Newegg
21 May 2013
  • Pros: Good Build Quality, Solid Construction, Great Design, Not too heavy, Pass through USB cord, Feel good in lap too.
  • Cons: Fan speed is quite low. I can blow harder than this large fan. Everything else goes in vain, if it doesn't serve its primary purpose i.e. to cool down the laptop. Not sure if it will be any helpful with such a slow fan speed.
