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.
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.

This review is about the Cooler Master NotePal U-LITE - Laptop Cooling Pad with Movable Fan and I will occasionally reference the other product to help clarify some qualitative statements.
EXPECTATIONS - Bad news, folks!
The product description here reads "High performance 100 mm fan". Yes, it's 100 mm, but it's certainly not anything like "high performance". The air flow is barely noticeable. I have not yet found how many cubic feet per minute this fan is supposed to move, but it's low, VERY low. By comparison, the Thermaltake fan I also purchased has a variable speed control. At the LOWEST setting, it feels like more air moves with the little 25mm Thermaltake than with the 100mm Cooler Master fan. At the highest setting, the Thermaltake is rated for an air flow 47.28 CFM. The impressive air blow of the Thermaltake gives me a lot of confidence and the dismal performance (certainly NOT high performance) of the Cooler Master first gave me pause to return it.
The only reason I am willing to keep it a little longer to try is the stand design, which attracted me in the first place. The stand give a lot more clearance under the laptop to allow air to circulate. I have the stand itself 4.5 STARS for look, feel and fit under my 15" laptop and the design allows the USB cord out the side or out the back of the stand.
However, I am disappointed that the stylishness interferes with functionally. I cannot mount the fan in the far top right. If you look carefully at the pictures, the design curves, which means not all the holes are available to mount this big fan. So, positioning it directly under my Toshiba Ultrabook fan is not an optimal fit. Nor can you just tilt the fan, as the holes will not line up. So, the design limits where you can position the fan on one side vs. the other. This is where it would really be appropriate to have better air flow on this fan! Too bad, it's POOR PERFORMANCE.
Still, despite the low performance of the 100mm fan, the raised stand allows enough cool air to come in to reduce my average CPU temperature by a full three (3) degrees Celsius. Success. But how good is that? Again, for comparison, I switched to the little 25mm Thermaltake fan on it's LOWEST airflow setting, which resulted in a drop of ten (10) degrees Celsius. That makes the 25mm Thermaltake better than three times (3x) more effective than the 100mm Cooler Master.
The Cooler Master is quiet. You can hear it, but it's not annoying. Comparison? The Cooler Master comparable to the Thermaltake at the lowest to mid-range settings. Past about 1/2 to 2/3 of Thermaltake's variable speed capacity, it starts to get noisy, but air flow is also impressive too.
I'm glad to have the Cooler Master stand, but the 100mm fan performance is POOR at best. At twice the cost of the Thermaltake 25mm fan, I am very disappointed. If anything goes wrong with the fan in this next 30 days, as described in many of the 1 star reviews, I will be sure to update my review and take appropriate warranty actions. Otherwise, you have my observations. Good luck.
