3.0 out of 5 stars Great Cooler August 1, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This cooler does its job well. I avoid using the auto feature because the typical failure point on coolers is usually the thermal switch.

I conducted two different tests.
1. I left my xbox next to the TV in the open with the cooler turned on and set to high speed. After a 2.5 hour game session the xbox was warm to the touch but not even close to the temperature it was without the cooler and nothing that I am personally concerned about.
2. Moved the xbox to a cabinet in the entertainment center (where I initally wanted it but space restriction made it heat up too much). There is about 2 inches on each side and 5 inches above for room so its a relatively small space for the xbox to be in. Once again the cooler was turned on and set to high. After about 3 hours (lost track of time playing) it was barely warmer that in the open.

Pros:
-Does its job
-Has USB ports (I have no use for these and will never use them but they are there)
-Cooler for an upright stand
-Multiple settings are nice Auto/On and High/Low
-When done playing the auto setting runs for a while after the console is off (Might be a con if you don't like the noise, unplug it...)

Indifferent:
-USB powered, more draw on the xbox but one less item to plug into an outlet

Cons:
-Tad Expensive
-Switces are on the back. I have to squeeze my arm between the enclosure and xbox which 90% of the time causes my forearm to open the disc tray which then turns the xbox back on.

Update to prior Review
I've owned this for a while now but have had limited time to play the xbox. I came back to review this cooler because I have encountered a problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Made Cooler for xbox 360 slim July 6, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Seems to be a very good cooler(not much noise than builtin optical drive, even in high setting).
The fitment is snug(just wish the plastic frame extended a bit in the back to provide even better
support). The cooling fans are of sleeve bearing type, but should not be an issue for the intermittent
duty of gaming. The fans are located right on the spot where the intake vent is on xbox 360 slim(just-
after the hdd bay). The power save mode seems to depend on a thermistor that is on the grill facing
the xbox slim's single exhaust fan/vent. Was missing the usb cable to connect to xbox, but took that
as a blessing, and used one of those dual usb Y-cable meant for portable hdd's(thereby distributing the
power draw, preventing any future issues with usb ports). In general this is a very well made and
thought out high quality cooler, that should satisfy everyday cooling for xbox slim(Suggest to use
it in the full on(either low or high), esp. if the console is in a space restricted enclosed cabinet).
I still do not know the effectiveness of the auto power save mode, since I am fine with leaving the
fan on, when the console is on(the console's inactivity shutdown(set to 1 hr) will take care
of turning fan off).

5.0 out of 5 stars So glad October 15, 2011
Verified Purchase
When i read reviews for other coolers i was little skeptical that i needed this because other customers kept saying you dont need this on the slim xbox because it dosnt overheat. I just got the GOW3 Xbox and i noticed it got extremely hot and the built in fan didnt even work. I was very glad made this purchase because without it i would have waited another month just to play gears that i been already waiting close to a year for. I would definetly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!!!!!!!! and !!! September 30, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I honestly bought this thinking it would help the temps a little but WOW!!! Unexpected. Prior to this, I noticed that after about an hour of Tiger Woods The Masters, it would get a little choppy, any game in general but noticable on The Masters. Now, three solid hours and no more chop.

A friend of mine asked me what it was when he was over. After telling him about it, he wondered if it would help with the chopping that he would get in Madden. I loaned it to him to find out and he returned it the next day saying he ordered one. He said it stopped the choppiness in Madden.

I would say that is a success...Now for the disclaimer...Hopefully, your Xbox is not right next to you, because regardless of what some may say, it is just shy of an Apache Helicopter taking off. Well, that might be a bit of an exageration because the Apaches do drown out the sound when they are taking off, but this is a bit loud. However, if you are gaming, you can't tell me that you have your TV volume turned all the way down. If you do, then you are probably either listening to music or have headphones on so what does the noise matter anyway; and if you aren't doing either of those things and have the volume turned down, then you aren't a true gamer anyway and probably don't need this LOL.

I have it set on the automatic setting (where it turns on when it needs to). It kicks on within 10 minutes after I turn the Xbox on and it stays on for about 5 minutes after I turn the Xbox off.

The extra USB ports on the front are a handy feature. I have charged my ipod, camera and phone on them. To me that's a pretty nice addition.

Highly recommended. Hopefully, I won't have to buy another one, but if the situation arises, I will.
