3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, 23 July 2008

This review is from: Belkin Cooling Stand for Laptops up to 17-inch - White (Accessory)
I bought this stand on a whim as my macbook was getting rather hot from overuse. It does exactly what it says, it keeps the laptop cooler, the fan appears to be very effective, blowing air onto the bottom of the laptop rather than trying to suck air away like many other coolers. All good thus far, however i will now be buying an ilap stand i think. The problem for me was that the fan was a bit too noisy, its not awful, but macbooks make no real noise so its very noticeable. In addition to this the stand, though not badly made, feels a little cheap and i know that given a bit of travelling i would have knocked it to pieces before too long. Finally the battery drain with the fan running is a little frustrating. If the noise isn't a problem and if your laptop is just going to sit on your desk all the time this is a great stand, otherwise look elsewhere.

I've traveled with it twice a week for the last 6 months and nothing has broken. I think it's actually rather neat that the usb cable and the feet fit into the body; the fan itself is well protected by a grid. I'dd argue it's the best stand for travel!
It is indeed a little lowder than I expected.
(excuse my broken english)
