Better than I had expected. I hope this lasts forever.
on December 31, 2013
As always, there are plenty of the reviews that are some of the good, the bad, and the ugly. I try to trust the reviews that seem to be composed by intelligent people... I was uncertain who makes the best cooling station that works for my needs. This was my risk choice compared to others online, that cost more and less than this one, and this is Better than I had expected. I have been using this for 4 months and I don't even notice the blue light inside by the fan while I'm working. Also, I don't need to hide on my PC as some reviewers have seemed to need. Yes, it will shine a small blue light that can be seen from a distance, if this is an issue for you or if you want a perfect dark room for video watching or anything else. It is really not that bright of a light. My main use for this is on an HP 15.6" laptop, which fits perfect like it was meant to be. I would not recommend this for a bigger screen PC or with additional cell battery accessory on the back. I mean the big performance batteries that lift up the back end may unbalance the stance and damage metal mesh surface. I maybe wrong. I'm also using a slightly smaller HP note laptop for managing personal music and movies that are on torrent with ease. I'm using the fan right now and it's so comfortable.
The important features that I have experienced:
-Multiple angles are well placed to compliment your sitting position.
-Sturdy and solid for resting your wrists and typing on your lap or a flat surface. Comfortable for lap use in jeans but, not padded for bare skin on the bottom. I wouldn't say it hurts or is uncomfortable still.
-Blows air at your wrists as my hands get warm when typing a lot. You can rest your hands and cool them off as well.
-Lower angles do not need the cleats that are supplied and you are free to lay your wrists. I recommend using them at the steeper angles where the laptop is almost standing and they are out of the way already so, they are optional.
-Cleat width and positioning is adjustable if you use them.
-They SUPPLIED a 12" male Usb to male Usb CORD!!! I read that other brands did not supply one by reviewers and I was unsure if this one actually would.
- Incredible how much faster my PC maintains after long use on a wood desk. I was experiencing some slow downloading and sending if I'm multi-tasking and when my PC was heating up.
-I can't imagine a fan that moves this much air that could be quieter. A tiny, tiny hum for a good a mount of air movement. Well worth the dead silence sacrifice but, pretty damn close to silent. At least this one that I have received.
-WHAT A MAJOR DIFFERENCE IN SURFACE TEMPERATURE THROUGHOUT THE LAPTOP, DESPITE ONLY HAVE ONE FAN.
I couldn't be any happier with this. No more pausing when everything was hot or even turning off. Streaming to my big screen makes uninterrupted theater experiences and my laptop never gets too warm. Great buy for those with temperature issues, extended usage fatigue or people who just want a better angle to work on a flat desk.
I HIGHLY Recommend this option for the price that is a bit below the other brand with the 3 fan options and I would do it again right now if I needed one. This is a decent design and it feels like quality to the touch. I really hope this lasts a while because, it is really doing well so far. If this fails me I'll make a comment ASAP. Hope this helps your search.
