I purchased this item for my 17" Dell Studio laptop that has been shutting off due to high heat (usually during high end game play). This item did not yet have any reviews but looked promising. The price was right so I ordered it.

It fits my 17" laptop well, but the two fans are placed higher up on the stand. My laptop heat appears mostly low on the unit in the palm rest area. The unit has two USB port and a simple on/off button. The tray tilts, but I find the mechanism awkward, though it is functional. My biggest issue is that the unit did NOT come with a USB cable. No big deal right? Wrong. It only has two USB ports, which means in order to power the unit, you need a male to male USB cord, or an adapter to make the unit work, there is no other size USB connections on the unit. I tried just setting my laptop on the unit while I ordered the proper cord, but it heated up even faster and shut off again. I ended up putting my laptop on a wire cookie rack which actually allowed enough air flow for me to play my game, but certainly wasn't a long-term solution.

The USB cord arrived two days ago, and I put the unit through it's paces with a marathon game session. My laptop did not shut off and actually felt cooler than it normally would under regular use. However, after only two days, the fans are starting to make noticeable noise. There is also no way to turn off the blue LED lights without turning off the fans, but the laptop does cover the lights, so they don't really show or offend.

For cost and function I would give this unit 4 stars. However, for not coming with the proper USB cable, and requiring the user buy their own male to male cable, it loses 1.5 stars. For fan noise developing after only 2 days, it loses another .5 stars.

I will be sending this unit back and trying a different one.

The fan is very good at dissipating heat! I was playing a graphics intensive game on my laptop, Starcraft II. After I stopped playing, I noticed the laptop and the cooler was not hot at all. I was never afraid of the laptop falling off the cooler, an issue other laptop cooling products have. The blue lighting is a nice touch too. The cooler itself is very supportive and stable, I would imagine it will last me a very long time, a great buy.

7/29/2013- I really like this fan but the rubber stoppers that slide onto the stand are flimsy. One of them fell off already, with the other one being really loose. This laptop cooler isn't designed to be portable either, its a bit too big and the rubber pieces pull off quite easily. I would recommend keeping this fan stationary on a desk if you want to buy/use it. Laptop slides around if you aren't careful in positioning the rubber stoppers either.

1/10/2015: I had to leave the fan at home, but it does a better job of cooling my laptop than some other choices. It lacks portability and it doesn't secure a laptop, both make this product subpar.

It keeps my laptop cooler, but the angle it sits up at is too steep and my laptop slides off. I needed to put two stacks of post-it notes under each foot just to keep the front up high enough. Also, it is too small for my 17 inch laptop. It (at most) will hold a 15 inch.

My first product arrived with a fan that did not spin, however, upon returning the product and receiving a replacement, it operated perfectly.

Runs quiet, cools significantly. It isn't the best quality of parts, but it is more than sufficient for getting the job done. Has a neat little blue light that shines on the fans which was unexpected. My biggest gripe is the clips at the bottom, which only measure ~1.5cm. If you have a thicker laptop you might want to consider another fan as I could see it easily sliding off at the higher angles. Other than that, it has a wide array of height settings, and is a great deal for only 20 bucks. I'd recommend it. I'd also like to note that your laptop doesn't have to be quite 17" to fit it as mine measures 16.5" across and fits perfectly.

I bought this laptop cooler because it was the cheapest one that would fit my 17-inch laptop. Unfortunately, by "fit," I mean, "allow my laptop a place to rest while leaving a third of it hanging off the edge." When it arrived and I tried it out, I found that the power had been left on, so I assume this is not a brand new item. Within two weeks of receiving it, I saw a piece of plastic inexplicably separated from the product along with a giant crack made when it was kept in my laptop case; as it probably wasn't meant to be stored in such a place, I didn't count against that in my rating, but it should be noted. The price was good, and the cooling is great, and that's what really matters. Also, the lights are cool.

This works as advertised for our 17" laptop. I had to attach velcro strips to the frame & laptop, howerver to hold keep the laptop from slipping down. It would be better if they designed some type of tabs on the bottom to cure this problem. The fans are a little noisey unless there is ambient sound in the room to distract.

What is so bad is the USB cable is worthless, (doesn't work) and the metal bar that holds the cooler at different heights slides back and forth which makes it go into the fan blades stopping the fan from working. I need to take it back!

This is a total piece of garbage. After less than two months of use, it completely died. Now I am past my return period, so I am screwed.

Please do not waste your money on this garbage!!!

I gave it one star only because that's the lowest rank I can give it. It actually doesn't deserve any stars.

This product works perfectly and looks awesome. The only one thing I am concern is size. I have 17.3 inch Laptop, and I have a little problem to fix it on this stand.

This wasn't my best purchased this year, the cooling stand works perfect of you use it on a plain surface, but if you need to adjust it to use it on your legs while your in bed, it wont work, because the laptop will slip cause the retainers are too small. the vents works nice, the 17 inch fits well, the only issue is the little pins to hold it (on my Toshiba L875D-S7232 laptop cause the edges aren't square)
