Good intentions, but not the best design
on July 23, 2012
I bought this product at Best Buy and decided to help other consumers on Amazon. The laptop stand did not work for me, however others might enjoy it. I own a MacBook Pro and with its stainless steel shell, the stand did not hold on to my laptop enough or get enough friction on it when I had it raised, ending in a horrible slide and drop to the floor. The fans in the product were not strong enough for how hot MBPs get but were quiet. I really enjoyed having the USB hub in the back of the item so that I could have a sort of dock effect without buying an actual dock. The stand is Not made of too flimsy of a plastic; it felt durable in my hands.
Pros: Quiet fans, USB hub works great, option to tilt
Cons: Low powered fans, SLIPPERY HOLD ON THE FRONT OF LAPTOP
All in all, if your laptop has good rubber feet and you don't always want to have it fully tilted, it may suit you, but for me it wasn't the best option. Just be prepared for lightweight fans.
