I havent had any problems with it n it has a nice design n quality build to it. The fan is very quiet at the lowest speed and at the highest speed isnt excessive in noise. Just a tad expensive but the quality is there n i dont think it will be breaking any time soon.
ZM-NC1000 is the cooler of choice!10/17/2008
Zalman has a winner in its ZM-NC1000 notebook cooler. It's well made, looks great and cools my laptop (and docking station)! It's one of the few cooling stations that have enough room to accommodate my laptop while in its docking station. That's why I bought it. It is large enough, but not too large, it's quiet, it keeps my laptop nice and cool and fits well into my office/desk scheme.
