Good idea, bad implementation
on April 9, 2007
I saw this item advertized and thought, "Wow, that's a great idea." So I ordered two, one for my laptop and one for my PC. The fan-blades are soft, and the thing puts out plenty of cooling air... when it works. The motor's sealed-in, however, so it overheats, and Kensington even included a temperature-switch to cut the fan off when it becomes too warm; unfortunately, this means that to restartn the fan, you apparently hyave to remove it from the USB port and set it aside for awhile. Also unfortunately, the fan overheated in *both* of mine after 5-10 minutes, every time. Now, after a grand total of 2 hours use of each, they're dead as doornails; the motors are toast. Basically... don't waste your money.
