Too small and no power switch1/20/2009
This laptop cooler is ok if you have a smaller laptop. I have a 15.4 in. and this is much too small. It would fit nicely under a 14.1 in. laptop. It does work, but my main beef with it is that they did not put a power switch on the thing. If it were not such a hassle I would have sent it back over this blunder. If you are attaching it directly to your notebooks usb port it will continue running unless you completely power down your notebook. I prefer to either use Standby or Hibernate most of the time so I have to unplug the cooling pad each time. I am now using it with a powered usb hub since it has no power switch. My advice is don't buy this laptop cooler unless you power down your laptop after each use and you have a 14.1 in. laptop.
Works just great9/2/2008
Fits my Powerbook G4 perfectly. The Powerbook was running hot and this cooling pad is doing its job. I like that it's USB powered.
Quiet and light weight8/6/2008
I've found the cooling pad to be very quiet and light weight. I wasn't sure what to expect when I purchased the item but have been pleased. The construction is light weight plastic. It dosen't seem very durable but all it does is sit on my deck. This item is not good for mobile use.
Piece of Cake5/30/2008
Open the box and plug it into your USB port, warm laptop disappears. Very satisfied.
It's simple and basic, but most importantly the fans get the job done.
Works as advertised8/6/2007
I have a small program on my Pentium 4 laptop that measures processor temperature. Using this cooling pad dropped the temperature by a full 8 degrees, which in turn reduced my laptop's built in fan (and its noise) by a lot. Great product.
Cool your laptop6/12/2007
My Toshiba laptop's temp has dropped 10 degrees since I started using the fan. A few bucks to protect a $3000 investment. No brainer. Buy it.
