Customer Reviews of Cooler Master R9-NBS-4UAK Notepal Ergostand Notebook Cooler with 4-Port USB Hub
Great cooling stand7/24/2013
This stand is great: it elevates the laptop for my wife to eye level, keeps the system cool, and provides a USB hub for other devices. Thinking about buying a couple more for the kids' laptops.
too much for a fan cooler6/20/2012
it's a fan cooler but with added height setting?! i don't think i want to bring it so i can bring my keyboard along too and weight me down. i don't like the price for it either. i would go for something lighter and cheaper.
Great design, quality and functionality6/19/2012
Extremely quiet -- virtually silent in a quiet room -- yet powerful enough to keep air circulating over the bottom of the laptop. I've tried many other coolers, and this one's the best. Very sturdy construction . . . I am able to elevate my laptop at a high angle and use an external, full-sized keyboard with no worry that the computer will slip and fall.
I knew from the start that if I ever wanted a cooling accessory for a computer that the best is Cooler Master. And there is no exception here. Though it uses one of my three USB ports, it has four USB jacks built in. So by using this fan, I gain USB ports. Also, you can change the speed of fan from very slow to very fast. It also has an on/off button and an indicator light to show it is on. Lastly, the aluminum/hard plastic design is a perfect combination.
So far so good6/9/2012
This cooling pad is very effective - the fan is super powerful. We love that it has a power switch so that you can turn it off manually instead of unplugging it if you just want to hibernate instead of shutting down the laptop completely.
For a product of this nature, the noise level of the fan, even at full blast, is more than acceptable. More importantly, as long as this product aligns well with the exhaust elements of your laptop, and helps to bring temps down, there might not be a more important product in terms of extending the life of your laptop, and especially your laptop's battery. Heat is one of the biggest killers of electronics and batteries, and the Cooler Master gets very high marks in that regard. So putting up with a little extra fan noise is really a small price to pay.
Quiet operation and does a good job of keeping my laptop cool when I am taxing the graphics card. Push button to turn the fan on/off is handy.
This cooling board fits my 17.3" size laptop, it's over the edges, but it does fit. It also fits on my lap easy & comfortably.

Not the best looking laptop stand, but it's essentially well designed, with plenty of useful extras. The ErgoStand is designed to lift your laptop's display to nearer eye level
Like it !6/1/2012
Adjustable to allow more airflow or better angle. It really does make the laptop on it cooler, with the fan set on medium to high. It's not too loud, I don't notice it much.
The Cooler Master Notepal ErgoStand is a great product. The fans is so quiet you really don t notice that it s on.
This product is great, especially for its price, with a strong and convenient build that cools my laptop efficiently while still remaining very quiet. The product is durable as I use my laptop almost all day for anything from watching movies to hardcore gaming and it has stood strong. Recommended.
This is an extremely convenient feature: It has 5 angles you can set it at for your comfort.
After a long search for a cooling stand...6/19/2011
The Cooler Master Notepal ErgoStand is a great product. The fans is so quiet you really don't notice that it's on. I bought this stand/cooler for my MacBook Pro fully knowing that the ErgoStand wasn't going to be a major part of my laptop cooling system. It does seam to bring the temp down a bit and I don't have adjust the fan control much unless under a heavy load. I love the stand. I use a 32" monitor for the main screen and my laptop as the secondary. The ErgoStand really does a nice job of pulling my work space together. If you are looking at this Cooler Master Notepal I would highly recommend buying a 5V DC +/- 5%, 2A : ID: 1.35mm OD 3.5mm power adapter.(Sold Separately!) Without it you cannot run any external usb hard disks. Haven't tried any flash drives yet. If this product is for a MacBook Pro you may want to consider the usb hub is on the right side (not correct side) of the stand and Cooler Master gives you a cord that is way too short. Come on Cooler Master, you can do better than that. With all that being said I would definitely buy the ErgoStand again gearing it towards the stand and not the cooling aspect(for a Mac). smcFanControl or a similar fan control software is a must. My 15.4 MacBook couldn't fit any better on the ErgoStand. The cooler/stand is made of good quality materials and is very sturdy as well as functional. If you are planning on having the stand in one of the higher upright positions I would also recommend getting bluetooth or usb keyboard, but then again I am always looking for an excuse to get a new computer gadget or peripheral. Good luck finding the stand that fits your needs, I did
