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.
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.
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.
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.
I pluged this in and it not crashed in the 12 months I have had it.
Cannot say how great this unit it.
After putting the cooler underneath the effect is immediate and as the title says amazing. My computer is running cool, the kind of cool that was only at start up or a few hours after shut down before. The fans are quiet as the other reviews have said and make no odds when it comes to general noise levels even on the higher fan setting.
I have a larger laptop and the cooler seems to accomodate it with no problems, there's storage for the lead for when I'm on the move and all in all this is a sweet little product. So much so that my husband has asked me to order him one too. I'd heartily recommend it. And have.
