Summary: The rebate is a complete scam. You end up spending a bunch of time going through the rebate process and the possibility of getting the rebate card is slim to none. I am done with rebates. I will no longer purchase products that have rebates attached to them. If you want to truly save money purchase these products used. To add insult to injury, the product completely fails to deliver on it's promise to cool anything.
Pros: Surface to put your computer on
Cons: Fails to do any cooling to the laptop The two USB plugs that power the cooler have needlessly wide body plugs which makes it difficult to plug them into sockets that are next to each other (typical arrangement on a laptop) There is not enough space between the fan and the surface on the table so you don't get plenty of cool air for the fan to blow on the bottom of the laptop
Cons: Zalman does not honor rebates. I have purchased this product on 10/16/2014 and five days later I have submitted the rebate, along with the rebate form, UPC code, and the Invoice/Order from newegg. Six days later I recieved denial. claiming I have not submitted the Invoixe/Order. Of course that is not true since I had to fold the rebate form inside the Invoice so that UPC code can fit nicely, which I remember very weill. I will turn this company to the Attorny General ...
Summary: Great device...exactly what I was looking for. I'd recommend it if overheating laptop is an issue.
Pros: - Keeps laptop cool or within desired range by adjusting fan speed - Nice angle for typing - Uses 2 USB outlets from laptop to power cooling pad, but provides 4 additional USB outlets for use with other accessories. Net gain of two USB jacks - Using on 17" laptop with high temp HDD, pad cools drive very effectively
Pros: Big fan, variable fan speed control, optional DC in (sold separately),
Cons: The fan isn't as quiet as I had hoped. Has a ticking sound when running on any speed. Not normally audible over my headsetsand playing a game which is when I have the fan on. The USB hub is only v2.0 (but this is in the specs so no real points off for that). The worst part, but not a killer, is that the plastic molding around the 2 USB plugs (the ones that plug into your laptop, one for USB data, one for extra power) are rather thick horizontally. I had to trim the ex...
Summary: The fan is good at moving air, though I am considering disassembling it and reversing the fan's orientation to blow air upward (and into the laptop's intake) rather than downward as it currently does - I doubt that this will be too difficult as the screws are easy enough to find. Hopefully that change will help improve its cooling further (plus, cool hands - neat?!) though your mileage may vary depending on how your laptop exhausts.
Pros: Moves air, keeping temps down Large fan keeps noise level acceptable - no whiny 80mms!
Cons: Minor considerations: Fan exhausts at bottom, but heated air is less dense than cold (lol physics); What does that button on the side actually do beside change the light from blue to red? See Other Thoughts for potentially forthcoming modding
Summary: Не разделяю восторгов, единственное достоинство - бесшумная работа.. о качестве же работы: охлаждение даже на самой высокой скорости минимальное! и разницы в мин и мах режимах не заметила вовсе! Ноут остаётся горячим((( Да и расположение USB портов очень непродуманное и потому весьма неудобное! Недовольна его работой!
Pros: бесшумная работа
Cons: охлаждения практически не происходит, расположение USB портов очень непродуманное и потому весьма неудобное
Подставка для ноутбука Zalman ZM-NC3500 Plus Black
11 February 2014
Conclusion: Дополнительные встроенные динамики очень даже кстати, особенно когда родные на ноутбуке уже похрипывают.
Pros: Достоинства:, Свое прямое назначение выполняет отлично. Дизайн даже лучше чем на картинке. Работу кулера на повышенных оборотах, если у вас не слишком острый слух, то практически не слышно. Дополнительные USB это очень удобно.
