Needed a good cooling product, as my Lenovo does reach some nasty temps when playing games like Dead Island and DE:HR. I had already read that it was quite small, but decided to get it anyway as the price was too good to pass up, so I am not rating it down due to it being a little on the wee side.
It is an attractive little thing, and when plugged in to the USB port, lights up a pretty blue colour, making your laptop look like a sweet modded ride. This really impressed all the ladies who witnessed me rollin' and gave me ample opportunities for some sweet lovin' action. All that is 100% true and not made up in the slightest.
The fans are really quiet, silent almost, but their output of cooling air is almost negligible. They do have good placement though - 1 either side and 1 in the middle - so overall good design. I am giving it 3 stars as I do not think it has done much of a job cooling my laptop and I have had to order a more expensive model, but at the same time is only a few quid and may make a difference for some people not playing modern games on it.
It's not really a case of "you get what you pay for" as it is a lovely looking piece of kit that does raise the laptop up off a surface, but it's minimal fan output hardly touched my temps overall. At the very least, your laptop will get you admiring glances from the blue underglow if you go LAN'ing. I don't do that sort of thing, as big crowds of gaming nerds scares the bejesus out of me as they tend to smell of sweat a lot and say things like "leet" and "I've weed myself."
