    OK, so let's discard all the possible negatives about this product. The description should say that this cooler is for laptops ranging in size from 15" and lower. I have a 15" computer and anything larger I would expect would be too close to the fans. A small space between laptop and fan is needed. Usually placing the "feet" of the computer does the trick, but larger coputers might end up having their "feet" too far out to place all four on the fan.

    A second issue adressed by other review-ees is that the USB plug gets loose after use. I haven't used it long enough for that to occur, but I can imagine that if you try to use this fan on non-flat surfaces then it is possible for any USB-fitted cable to loose it's tightness.

    It's extreamly quiet and I'm running it on the higher setting. This fan is so good that it has saved my computer! My built in computer fan died recently which meant that the heat would cause the computer to crash every 5 minutes. The cooler is compensating completely! This is impressive as I'm a student in the progress of writing my dissertation which means that my computer is switchen on for up to 14hours straight.

    And finally let us not forget the dimensions, it only raises the computer about an inch = 2.5cm. And the design is stunning. It is also very light, so I doubt it would add much weight if you choose to travel with it.

    To reiterate, as long as it is kept on a flat surface and used with a 15" or smaller laptop, it's a great investment.

    I read all the rave reviews about this notebook cooler and thought that it was the one for me - my Dell inspiron 5150 is getting on a bit and I do a lot of Dreamweaver work and it was often shutting down it got so hot. However when I got this wonderous device I found that it sucked air in through the top and blew it out of the bottom - but and the laptop fan sucks air in through the bottom and blows it out the sides. So the two of them are fighting against each other and it actually made the over heating worse!

    Have just turned it upside down and put the rear out vent under the in fan of my laptop and it works much better - keeps my legs cool too!

    Stupid design flaw - can't even open the cooler up to turn fans over as its a sealed unit. They should make the fans reversable.

    Smaller,lighter and far more attractive than I expected it to be, this notebook cooler really does the job. It's surprisingly quiet, too. In fact the only reason you'll know it's there at all is that your laptop doesn't crash any more. I bought one because my laptop (just out of guarantee, of course) had started routinely dying on me after only a few hours. Now it doesn't. Simple as that.

    When I bought the cooler I was initially encourage by the other reviews. However, upon setting up the cooler I was not as impressed as I thought I might be. The fans are quieter than the laptops own, but are still a bit loud when watching a dvd. Indeed, the laptops own fan still kicks in when using demanding applications (Read: Football Manager 2005) and with both operating in tandem it creates quite a racket.
    The laptop does feel much cooler to touch though, and I do believe the cooler is lessening the strain my laptop was previously under. I would thus still recommend it to anyone interested in a laptop cooler.

    This may or may not be a good laptop cooler. The reason I don't know is that this cooler draws air in to the top and pushes it out of the side but my laptop (Acer Aspire) draws in air from underneath and pushes it out of the side. This means that the cooler and the laptop CPU fan are fighting against each other for the same air resulting in the cooler making virtually no difference to to the laptop temperatures.

    Due to the design of the cooler it is not possible to reverse the airflow so don't bother trying.

    If you're considering buying this cooler make sure your laptop draws air in from the sides or back and pushes it out of the underneath otherwise you are probably wasting your money and at £24 it's not the cheapest cooler around.

    Build quality is ok and the 4 rubber spacers provided can be popped into holes in the top of the cooler for laptops that are a little bit too large for the unit (my Acer is 15.4" and only just fits without the laptop feet falling off the sides of the cooler).

    On low speed the fans are quiet enough to not be noticeable but turn them up to high speed and they are a little too noisy for me.

    As the direction of airflow for a cooler is a vital piece of information when deciding which cooler suits your laptop I do think that Amazon should include this information on its website for all coolers.

    Firstly the reason this doesnt get 5 stars is because of its size, the usuable surface area is only 250x200mm meaning that if you want to rest your laptop fully on it (with the laptops feet) you'll have to be using a small size screen laptop. The problem with this is that if you dont have some sort of space between the cooler and the base of your l/t, you'll lose some of the cooling effect, this also means the cooler will have to work harder, making it louder.(Unfortunately im using a 17" screen l/t, but ive placed 4 peelable-back rubber rectangles on the cooler, this allows me the spacing)
    Other than that, its useful, the volume of the thing depends on (the above) and also the quality of your l/t speakers, if you've got the typical (lets be honest:crap) laptop speakers with no bass,not enough volume and too much distortion, then it'll sound loud, if you've got decent internal speakers, or you've purchased external, then you've nothing to worry about, as at the same sort of volumes the quality of sound, and the bass, makes the cooler noise that much less intrusive.
    The item feels sturdy, but light enough to be taken with you in a carry bag along with your l/t (this is where the limited size helps), the USB cable sits neatly in an underneath compartment, much like a battery compartment, and it just plugs in the side and a green light shows if its on, dead easy.
    You can use the same USB port when you're using the cooler as it has a splitter, but be careful of the power usage the other item has, as the cooler uses exactly half of the available power from the port, lastly, for £20, you can't go wrong, lets face it, you can't buy much for that nowadays for your pc, and this is gonna last a long time isnt it. Hope this helps.
