All-in-all the Zalman was worth it.

My laptop that once couldn't run an HD video without lagging terribly now plays them perfectly smooth.
Nani
Aside from the really annoyingly bright led light that is way too bright, this unit cools very well.

Okay so I bought this notebook cooler, and while searching for reviews for this product used with alienware, i havent seen any and thought I should give my piece on the product. I have a very power hungry Alienware M15x

processor: quad core i7 720 QM 1.6ghz (2.8ghz turbo mode)
video card: 1 GB nvidia GTX 260m
display: 15.6-inch WideFHD 1920x1080 (1080p) WLED
memory: 3gb ddr @ 1066Mhz
hard drive: 500gb sata II 7200rpm

all of this, packed into a 15 inch laptop... not good. Although alienware has improved this model's bios and venting system over its predecessor, still it packs on a lot of heat. It has on times shut down itself due to extreme heat. So i look for a notebook to suffice my cooling needs, I have been choosing amongst 3, NC2000, NC1500 and antec200. I decided to go with this one considering the budget I have for the notebook cooler. One thing I would like to say is before you buy a notebook cooler, make sure you measure the dimensions of the base of your notebook. Mine is a 15.6" screen, but i did not bother to measure the base, thinking that the NC1500 would be enough for the base. It has slipped my mind that alienware makes their bases a little bit bigger because of the hardware, and i'm sure this varies between notebook manufacturers. The NC1500 covers 75% of the base, which I am okay with. Also, check the venting system, and the hot parts of your laptop when choosing a notebook cooler. Different notebooks have different specialties. My venting system is at the far end of my laptop, which is completely missed by the design of this notebook cooler. I am listing my mistakes as a consumer so you don't have to make the same mistakes I did.

I have an Inspiron 1525 and they have a reputation for spontaneously shutting down due to overheating. I went through two cheap plastic fans, the first one died early and the second one didn't keep it cool enough. I've had this baby for 4 months now with my computer on it non-stop and it hasn't overheated once. Although the fans aren't as strong as I expected them to be, they are definitely quiet. It looks nice, fits my computer well, and I like the angle it sets my keyboard at. All-in-all the Zalman was worth it.

I have a 5-year old Macbook Pro 17" that would display RANDOM BLACK LINES on the screen after about 20 minutes of use. I assumed it was old age, video card was going bad, etc. and even considered buying a new laptop. I also thought that maybe one of the internal fans was dead because it was always hotter than usual. Figured it wouldn't hurt to try one of these laptop coolers, so after reading all the reviews I bought the NC1500.

To make a long story short, I've been running my Macbook Pro for about 11 hours straight now (since I bought the cooler this morning) and those black lines are GONE! Just to be 100% sure, I worked for a few hours in Photoshop, played some World of Warcraft, and other CPU/GPU intensive task. Same results - no more black lines and it's running as good as ever.

HELPFUL TIP:
I don't like plugging things into my USB ports if I don't have to, so I tried plugging this into my cellphone power adapter and it worked just fine. My old Motorola cellphone's power plug is simply a 5v output with a female USB port. I plug the NC1500 into that instead of my laptop and now I can use it to cool other things like my AppleTV.

This mat does cool my notebook PC well enough. But the rubber pads on the surface weren't glued on very securely, so they kept sliding off and now they're gone. It would be better if it had a ridge at the bottom of the deck to hold the laptop in place. Now that the rubber pads are gone, the laptop slides down past the bottom edge all the time and I have to keep moving it back in place. This is annoying, but at least the mat works otherwise.

A good cooler should extend the life of your laptop. Zalman makes superior coolers that are worth the price premium over the cheap brands. The pros you probably already read.. great airflow and whisper quiet. I have been using the NC-2000 for almost a year and no issues but I prefer the NC-1500; it feels just as solid but is lighter(more plastic parts), I like the USB plug and speed control location(back center rather than right side) and air flow seems slightly better at same sound level. The only negative is it cannot be stored flat so is not very portable.
UPDATE February 14, 2013: WOW, no issues from either my NC-2000 or my NC-1500. Not even an increase in noise. Didn't even need to clean them (but I did anyway, something dropped through the grill).

*** UPDATE (April 2013): Less than 5 months in, 1 of the 2 fans is pretty much shot (rattling very loudly), and there's no way to replace it (or unplug it). This has been a waste of money. I do not recommend it!! ***

---

This is my second Zalman cooler (the first being an NC2000-NT). My previous cooler lasted about 16-18 months before one of the fans started rattling, making it unsuitable for regular use without noise-blocking headphones. I opted to try this one as it was considerably cheaper and, like the other, purported to be "ultra quiet."

First and foremost, this product *does* help cool laptop. I'm running a mid-2009 15" MBP with both the internal LCD and an external display. This is my primary work platform, and I put it under fairly heavy use during the day. Streaming video tends to spike the heat generation, and subsequently the internal fans, on the device. The Zalman cooler helps more effectively dissipate the heat, resulting in the internal fan speed being greatly decreased.

Second, this unit is *not* "ultra quiet." If anything, I would say it's even a little louder than the NC2000 was (suggesting that the fans may not be of the same quality). The noise is especially prevalent when the fans are dialed up to full speed. Perhaps this is indicative of the fan technologies in general, but don't expect this to be whisper quiet by any means; at least, not on full speed.

Third, it's a bit a small. My 15" MBP overhangs the cooler by about 3/4" on both sides. The description claims that this is for laptops up to 17", but I would definitely not use it on anything larger than 15".

Fourth, it is very lightweight; much lighter than the NC2000.
