I like that it also raises the back of my laptop. The only problem I have is that you can't use it to store and carry your laptop as intended unless you remove the two fans, at least with my laptop. Much thinner ones may fare better. I just don't have the time to remove the fans, rearrange everything to put the laptop into the slot, and then put them into my backpack in such a way that the disconnected fans aren't damaged every time I need to move my laptop. Reassembling from there is also a pain. So I don't use that extra "protection and storage" feature and just keep the fans attached and my laptop on top of the frame, even in my backpack.
Aside from that, this laptop fan works great. I can barely hear it, it is made of sturdy material and doesn't slide, it fits great (about the same size as my 15.4" laptop), and the underside of my laptop feels only slightly warm after being on all day with the fan beneath it. Even without connecting the fans, it does a decent job cooling. I definitely recommend it.
I went with this Cooler Master Cooling Pad and now I understand why the other stand had such bad reviews. By comparison, there is no comparison. The Cooler Master is superior is all categories. The display angle is better suited for, well, everything. The fans are SILENT, and being able to place them anywhere below the laptop lets you target hot spots, like batteries and hard drives.
Buy the PERFECT laptop cooling stand the first time, but this one.
As many have said, good concept, poor execution.
1. This is advertised as capable of holding and cooling a laptop "up to 19 inches" - I don't know to what measurement they are referring, but there is no such thing, at least not yet, as a 19" laptop. The standard measure for laptop is in the diagonal screen-size, and the largest so far is 18.4 inches.
2. The Achilles Heel of this system is the fact that the fans are sleeve-bearing fans, which are designed to last a reasonably long time when mounted vertically, but as many reviewers indicated, tend to fail very early when mounted horizontally, as on this pad.
That said, it will work fine for many laptops (until the fans fail), didn't work at all for my behemoth HP-DV8T-1200 18.4" laptop. Movable fans are a good concept, but they are much too small, and there should be 4 of them, and should have a separate DC power source as an option.
The platform could be a bit thicker, as it buckles under the weight of my laptop -- either that, or don't advertise it as capable of holding a 19" laptop.
I've modified mine:
1. Removed the provided fans, USB connector (flimsy, weak) and potentiometer, set them aside.
2. Mounted 4 120mm fans oriented to blow air UP. Used Cooler Master fans available on Amazon as a 4-pack (search Amazon for "Cooler Master Super Fan 120 - Ball Bearing 120mm Silent Cooling Fan for Computer Cases, CPU Coolers, and Radiators (Value 4-Pack)").
3. Connected the fans to a high-quality 4-way PWM splitter (search Amazon for "PWM Female to 4 x PWM Male Computer Case Fan Splitter Power Connector Black Sleeved Adapter Cable").
4. Connected the Molex-end of the splitter to a separate DC power source (search Amazon for "Coolerguys 100-240v AC to 12 & 5v DC 4pin Molex 2A Power Adapter").
Now the pad has four 120mm fans, permanently mounted with screws (once you've determined the best locations for those fans, why do you need to move them?). The fans near the bottom of the pad force the pad to stand up a bit, it's ugly, but it works.
How well does it work? I wish I could say, but HP made this laptop with a shell entirely out of plastic, which makes it even more difficult to cool down (brilliant, HP), and provided zero sensors hardware, so I can't give any data other than how cool it feels when I put my hand on the keyboard (really, really brilliant, HP, you guys are healthcare.gov material). That said, the laptop does run a bit cooler, again, as measured by my completely inaccurate touch of the hand.
One advantage is, that with the 4 fans, it still lighter and does a better job cooling than my previous NZXT cooling platform, with its 3-80mm fixed-position fans.

The bearings on the fans went bad within 2 months... loud whirring and inconsistent fan speeds developed.Read more
