Cons: I had 2 of these. Both broke w/in 1 month. USB port on cooler became loose and device stopped turning on. I called RMA, got the run-around (I have to email someone after calling RMA for some reason?). Said I would have to pay for shipping for returns, even manufacturer defect. No reply from email...
Summary: My laptop is keeping the temperature cooler than before. I haven't used NC2000 so I can't compare NC3000S with NC2000, but I'm fully satisfied by NC3000S.
Pros: First, it has very stylish appearance!!! Many of my friends also like this sleek black notebook's appearance. And I'm satisfied by this big size. I have 17" Laptop; usually I have used a small size notebook cooler which is easy to get hot. But this NC3000S is big enough to cover my laptop as well...
Cons: It's kind of heavy. It's hard to take a cooler outside. And It leaves finger print on the plastic surface. I have to swap that every time. I love it. It makes my desk brilliant. : ) Performance is also cool.
Summary: Ive personally used the 2000 series and it is constructed 10x better. Did not yeild the results even near to the 2000 series I have tested on other laptops.
Pros: Stylish Large fan Fits 17.3" nicely
Cons: Cheap plastic, I can feel it separate from the metal surface as I move the laptop from one place to another. USB port just broke on me after less than 2 weeks of use. Difficult to take anywhere because of its awkward size. Sending it back as it does not work now. Cooled my HP dv7 core i7 maybe 7*...
Summary: I am quite dissapointed with this cooler. I did alot of research - matching fan with vents, size, power, etc. I would have expected this cooler to do a much better job considering the fact that this cooler is marketed for up to 17" laptops & my laptop is only a 14.5" laptop.
Pros: -Looks - it is very stylish with the mix of frosted aluminium & glossy plastic. - The aluminum is cool to the touch even while the fan is off - BIG quiet fan - Build quality - very sturdy, has rubber feet for gripping the laptop
Cons: Does NOT cool my laptop adequately. I have used several programs to track temperatures and often times I see no difference in temeratures whether the laptop is on the cooler (full blast) vs when my laptop is sitting on a desk.
Summary: Performance wise, I can't compare this to previous generation NC-2000 but it sure is nice to fan directly under the holes rather than from sides like the previous ones It actually lowered my northbridge and hdd temp a lot due to the vents without fans are now being circulated with cold air.
Pros: +Light compared to the size and thickness of the aluminum +gloss finish on the edges bevel look nice under +extra propping up available +++BIG FAN: very quiet (hard to hear difference between max and min speeds) ++Design that doesn't collect dust in the fans just attracts little dusts to hang ont...
Cons: --makes the notebook fans seem louder (compared to just propping up the laptop in the back) (the fans themselves don't speed up, but the sound is reflected by aluminum panel right under the fan) -cooler is a bit high and steep for me palm rest area +0.7 in keyboard area +1.4 in back end +1.9 in -...

Excerpt: Купил подставку охлаждающую, в связи с поломкой предыдущей. Думал заменит её- прогадал. Совсем не понравилась. Работает шумно очень. Хоть и есть регулятор мощности охлаждения, но даже выставив на самый минимум очень шумит. Не советую покупать простые подставки с охлаждением.
Cons: громкая даже при минимальной мощности, тяжелая
Excerpt: Этой охлаждающей подставкой, я пользуюсь около года. Она отлично справляется со своей задачей. Подставка работает бесшумно, включается и выключается вместе с ноутбуком. Есть реле-колесико, которым можно добавить либо убавить скорость вращения моторчика.
Pros: отлично охлаждает,дополнительные USB входы,хороший дизайн,
Excerpt: На протяжении года я мучилась с проблемой - перегрев ноутбука. Притом он перегревался за пол часа работы на нем и выключался. И вот мне посоветовали купить охлаждающую подставку для ноутбука. Продавцы посоветовали эту.
