5.0 out of 5 stars Fan broken after first installation, 18 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I set up the laptop cooler with the laptop on top and the first think I hear is this mechanical noise from the left fan, most probably unbalanced. Not a good first impression. Although, the short time I used it the SpeedFan software showed a 10 C less temperature. I take it as bad luck and will give a second chance.

Update 21/01/2015. I got a swift reply and reaction from bot Amazon UK and Avantek. Avantek sent me a replacement cooler which arrived earlier than expected. This one works fine and I have no problems. Tested the result with SpeedFan software and it seems to do its job. There was a drop of at least average 5-10 degrees C after a few minutes. Will see how it works when gaming. Product is light and fans quite. Guess that is one advantage of having two big fans instead of three smaller on higher rpm. I took the two fan version because most of the heating problem of my laptop is on the left side and this one covers that area better.

Recommendation when choosing any cooler: Feel with your hand which part(s) of your laptop is overheating and choose a cooler with fans that covers those areas.

I have no problems my laptop sliding as some mention here as it has rubber feet.

So five stars for very good service from both Amazon and Avantek and that first impressions of the product are positive.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stay a way from it, 8 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The feel and and quality of this thing is like Chinese cars crashed in Euro NCAP before Qoros came around. I had my Microsoft wired mouse for years, being bashed, dropping to the floor xxx times and the only reason I replaced it with this one was that I lost one button on the side (but of no function to daily computing use). This one didn't even survive 10 drops. This is clearly one of those rules that it is cheaper to pay more ... I just picked my Microsoft mouse of the bag in the garage that was destined for recycling. Just plugged it in and it still works!

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality and smells of cheep plastic, 17 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite the good reviews the blanket was a major disappointment. It was damaged when it arrived even if the package and the the protective plastic bag it was in was not damaged. The fabric was damaged on several places where it has been folded and had a very cheep feel and smell to it. Amazon resolved it very smooth and swift and I give them five star for service.AA Car Essentials Picnic and Travel Blanket
