3.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but there are better products for the same money., 20 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Solid construction with three pretty quiet fans. Since using the product, my laptop fans tend to spin up to full speed less often, so the cooling pad seems to be working.

I'm not a big fan of the blue LED's, they are rather bright and slightly garish for my taste; there is no way of turning them off which is a shame. This makes the product pretty bad for watching movies in bed, unless you find that the rather eerie blue glow sets the mood.
The fans also seem to be in the wrong position, with two at the bottom (nearer to you) and only one at the centre on top. Most laptops have a heat sink next to the processor which is commonly located towards the top left of a laptop. This area is where the ventilation from the cooler is needed most, and yet it receives very little.

The effectiveness of the product will likely vary on how ‘open’ the underside of your laptop is. If the ventilation grills are quite small then this product will just blow air onto the plastic case, doing nothing to cool the electronics at all.

Just to be clear, I have seen some reviews claiming this product sucks air away from your laptop. This is NOT the case as it would cause conflict with the majority of laptop fans which suck air in through the bottom and expel it through the sides. If your device does the opposite DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT, it will cause hot air to become trapped inside your device as your laptops fans and the cooler fans simply blow air back and forth.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS, 31 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's unbelievable just how low quality this product was. Take the hat for example, it was squashed flat and has no structure. It had also clearly been painted over, you could see the M for a Mario hat right underneath it. Avoid at all cost, a right waste of money!

3.0 out of 5 stars not too bad, 21 Sept. 2012
This is a good book if your brand new to python, however if you are looking for quick reference coding then this is not the book for you. There is a considerable about of text in each chapter which is mainly aimed at people whom are new to python, people who have used python before should buy a quick reference handbook.
