It is well known that heat is the enemy of electronics. I recently bought a used 17" widescreen notebook computer that is notorious for running hot. With 3 fans, it is also pretty noisy and at close to 10 lb. it is hefty. Would a cooling stand help? After some research I decided on the Rocketfish.

This is a lightweight plastic item, yet rigid and strong. It has a slight tilt to raise the back of the keyboard and there are two flip-out feet to increase the angle even more. The fan runs off a USB port and the USB cable stows in a handy compartment on the stand.

The Rocketfish works just fine. It has no difficulty standing up to the weight of my "barely" portable notebook. At just under 13" wide I ws concerned if it would be stable under my 16" wide notebook. No problem at all. It is a "universal" product, so it won't fit all notebooks the same. For my notebook, I had to be careful to position it so that it didn't block any of the fans or cooling vents. The rear feet sit only partially on the stand, but even with this it is stable. The Rocketfish fan is very quiet and noise from the notebook is diminished. I'm not sure if this is because 1) the fans are running less, 2) the space under the notebook changes how the fan noise is reflected off the desktop or 3) the space under the fans decreases the air turbulence they produce. I think turbulence may be the big issue but whichever it is, the computer is definitely quieter.

I ran a vacuum cleaner over the notebook's cooling vents, set it up on the stand, and connected the Rocketfish's fan to a USB port. Final results were that it runs about 15 degrees cooler. Success!

One comment on portability. This unit is about as small as it can be.

When we bought our 17 inch Compaq, this is the cooling stand we bought along with it, simply because it was relatively cheap and seemed like it would get the job done. In retrospect, we should've just forked out a little extra for a higher quality stand. The stand failed to keep our laptop cool enough which eventually started creating charging problems. The laptop would be plugged in and maintain current battery percentage, but show "Not Charging," or even worse be plugged in and not even show that it was plugged in at all, thus losing power. At first we thought it was a charger problem so we replaced that, but the same issues started happening again. Not only that but the stand itself would get so hot that the rubber feet you see on each corner started coming loose, and eventually 3 of the 4 came off completely. We ended up replacing this thing with a Connectland stand which was actually even cheaper than this Rocketfish, and we've had absolutely no charging issues since then. I've also noticed that the laptop now stays much cooler, and seems to hold it's charge longer. Bottom line: stay away from this product!

This cooling stand is awesome. It's quiet, it looks nice, and it cools relatively well. My laptop use to over heat so much that I could feel the heat through the bottom of my desk...Now not only can I not feel the heat through my desk but there's barely any heat from my laptop at all. It produces minimal sound and it actually cuts my computer's sound in half.

The only thing about it is that if you need it to be portable, it might take up a lot of space. It's about as big as my laptop. I don't mind because I only use it at home but if you needed to take it somewhere it might take up a lot of space. It has a neat little compartment for the cord though, so if you did take it someplace, it wouldn't get in the way.

Hope this helped.
