+ Fits my 17" MSI GS75 Stealth which is closer to a 15" older laptop size with just a small overhang.
+ Cooling is decent. My Laptop runs quieter while gaming by about 3 to 10 degrees depending on the game and what I am doing. Any cooling is significant because it ultimately means lower fan speeds which is quieter. My Laptop being a Thin and Light runs high fan speeds to make up for lack of cooling space while on GPU and CPU high loads.
+ Seperate buttons for Fan and Lights. great if you don't want the gaudy blue lights on which are actually pretty dim.
+ Built in Storage for USB cords
+Fan is quiet. It is not silent, but being so large, it has a great sound as a whoosh. I forget to turn it off a lot even when I fall asleep right next to it, so it isnt annoying at all and is usually quieter than my laptop.
+ Angle with the legs down is more comfortable to type with than my laptop flat.
- pricey for what it is
- quality is ok. feels kind of cheapy plastic but its light which is good and bad.
- bulky - i use this for home use only, it is too bulky for me to use on the road.
-well some things i have noticed in the past week, the first think is the serial number sticker came right off, the rubber feet on the bottom of the laptop are unsticking and are somewhat fallng apart, and now when i have it on full with my laptop on it makes a weird sound... im sure it is fine but the sound scares me
-well i have noticed that the fan is actually supposed to make that sound when it is on full blast so that's fine, also the rubber feet aren't glued on the bottom they are actually clipped on in some way so that's why it looked like it was unsticking, i have moved it around a lot and it still works great, but another thing thing bad that i noticed was that it makes a nasty burning plastic smell, i don't know if its just because it blowing the hot air and it just smells like it or not, but whatever, also the metal top on it is actually getting quite slippery, when it is at the normal angle it is fine, but when you raise it with the pegs it slips very slowly down it, which is quite dangerous, overall i'm happy with this product, Definitely the best laptop cooler i have used
i would also like to add how well the fan works so here are the temperature of my CPU's 4 cores (in Fahrenheit)
W/O Fan (Regular Use)
Core 1- 100-110
Core 2- 93-109
Core 3- 97-109
Core 4- 104-112
W/ Fan (Regular Use)
Core 1- 93-102
Core 2- 84-100
Core 3- 90-102
Core 4- 93-106
as you can see in terms of everyday regular use like watching videos on youtube or just surfing the web it did keep the laptop about an average of 8 degrees cooler
W/O Fan (Gaming Use)
Core 1- 156-176
Core 2- 154-174
Core 3- 153-174
Core 4- 151-180
W/ Fan (Gaming Use)
Core 1- 140-163
Core 2- 135-158
Core 3- 140-165
Core 4- 140-172
As you can see the fan does help when you are hardcore gaming, keeping it around an average of 10 degrees cooler, which is significant
I would also like to add that this is not very comfortable on the lap with the back pegs sticking out, but with its regular position it feels okay, overall i lowered the rating to a 4 because this basically cools a little better thn the u2 that i had bought for 12 bucks, the only difference is that this cooler looks very cool and works when its on the lap, i will update this review next week as well if there are any other problems that arise
UPDATE: May 4, 2014
Still using this laptop cooler after a year and a half, still works and looks awesome! I don't just use it as a cooler but as a lap stand too!
edit/ i have done some more tests on how well the fan works, i have updated the above information
First and foremost, this really isn't a "portable" cooling pad; it's too bulky & thick to carry around a college campus, but light enough that it can be moved around the house or to an occasional LAN party. The base has 2 different wrapping points for wires, as well as cable channels. Wire management is a breeze, and, although I don't use the included (and branded!) USB to Micro USB cable, it's made fairly well and should last a few years of use. The bottom also sports 2 thick feet, which elevate the back far end of the pad. The manual recommends that these are always out to allow more air to enter the fan base. The micro USB (power in) and USB (power/hub out) are on the front left corner of the unit, as is the fan speed knob, and the 2 buttons which power the 4 blue LEDs surrounding the fan as the fan motor itself. The too of the unit is black steel mesh (as pictured) and is surprisingly well finished. My laptop rarely slides on the surface, but keep in mind that when a laptop is on the base, no hint of the LEDs are visible. It's best to keep them off when anything is using the fan; they draw a noticeable amount of power from the source.
I personally don't plug the fan into my laptop as a power source, I use a 4-port USB wall-powered hub. I see no difference in fan speed when plugged into either a 2.4 ampere or 1 amp outlet, but a significant decrease when powered by my laptop. As mentioned, the fan is also a bit slower when the blue LEDs are on.
As the product was shipping, I didn't even know that it was a "silent" unit; it produces a solid flow of chilled air across the base and into the intakes of your PC, while maintaining a relatively low speed and making nearly no noise at all. It can only be heard when your laptop is off and there is no other source of sound in the room. The Logitech cooling pad was much louder and, while the speed of the air it pumped felt greater, it was at room temperature and was very noisy. What's more is that due to the size of this fan, you don't need to position your computer over it so that more air is directed to your PCs intake. The front of the unit also has a few slats which exhaust cool air over where your wrists would be if you were typing on your laptop's keyboard, a nice added touch.
-Pumps truly "cooled" air
-Massive fan diameter
-USB out hub
-LEDs & Fan activated separately
-Easy wire management
-Large enough for 17' laptops
-It really isn't that portable
-I think that the fan could be faster
-LEDs take noticeable amount of power
-Fan speed control changes close to nothing
-Sharp angles on front and tall, if you plan to use your laptop's integrated keyboard & touchpad
-included USB cable is short
Overall, if your laptop is just a little too warm for your liking or comfort, or if you are a gamer who has a laptop with a dedicated setup (desk, keyboard, mouse or trackball), I would totally reccomend this cooling base for you. It may not be as "powerful" as you think it would be, but it will bathe your PC with the cold air it needs to run over it's proccessors and drives.

Recomend to all for a good price
I was thermal throttling in games due to a bad cooling system in laptop. Bought a 144hz monitor and couldn't get Overwatch to reach 144 FPS, bought this pad to bring my computer's temperature down from 92 degrees Celsius to mid 70s (while also undervolting). I tried a no name brand cooling pad, but it didn't make anywhere near an impact this Cooler Master one did. Your mileage will definitely vary depending on your laptop's cooling system. Worse cooling systems will more likely to see a lower temperatures as a result of this pad, but your mileage may vary still.
****THE FULL REVIEW****
***MY LAPTOP'S HEAT ISSUE***
I have a laptop with a GTX 1060 6 GB and i7-7700 HQ. For the longest of time, my computer struggled to run Overwatch at a smooth 100 FPS on the lowest of settings which should not be the case.
I eventually realized my laptop was hitting insanely high temperatures while gaming (92 degrees Celsius...) which not only forced the computer to thermal throttle (run slower to prevent the heat from rising, thus I experienced frame drops in games), but I'm sure it put the laptop components at great risk for permanent damage.
I've tried undervolting, which only slightly reduced the temperature. I've tried applying new thermal paste, which didn't change anything as the old paste was still working fine. I even bought a no name branded laptop pad from eBay, which did lower temperatures by 1-2 degrees. Tried all these solutions from the internet and it only reduced to my temperatures to about 88 degrees Celsius, which is still too high. I gave up and just accepted that my laptop has a really bad cooling system.
***DECIDING FACTOR FOR MY PURCHASE***
Recent to the purchase of this cooling pad, I purchased a 144hz monitor, and realized I couldn't push 144 FPS in the games I wanted to if I were being heavily thermal throttled. Of course, I wanted to build a new PC, but that wasn't in the budget at the time. So I checked online to see what people do if their laptop has a bad cooling system - and some recommended getting a cooling pad. Well, I already did that (with a cheap eBay pad), but I was desperate now that the only thing holding me back from 144 FPS was the heat. I did some quick research on recommended cooling pads, and settled for this Cooler Master one.
When I first took the pad out of the box, it felt light and plasticky. It almost felt like it would break if I dropped it. However, the build itself feels compact and solid. The buttons and wheel on the side aren't loose and the cable is a snug fit. I'm really glad the cable is removable because these things are usually the first to die on products such as these. However, it still uses a Mini-B connector type, which is pretty outdated and these cables break especially easily from my past experiences. I heavily believe this product should see a revision with a Micro USB cable instead.
***SET UP AND USE***
Set up is an easy plug and play. The fan starts up immediately and you can adjust its speed with the wheel (great addition) or turn it off completely with one of the buttons which isn't the case with some of the other cooling pads that need to be unplugged completely to turn off.
The other button controls the LED lights and to be honest this is probably the most useless feature. I haven't noticed it at all in a decently lit room. Moreover, the laptop covers the entire cooling pad, so to be honest I haven't even seen the lights at all so far.
Wow. Just wow. I honestly didn't expect this cooling pad to make a difference at all, but now my temperature hovers in the mid 70s (C) in combination with undervolting (previously 88-89 with just undervolting). I no longer thermal throttle in Overwatch and have been running near 130-140s consistently.
Not only does the fan work great, but the legs on the bottom of the pad also provide some great additional space for air flow. I do think I saw a heavy improvement because my laptop's internal cooling system is just garbage, but an improvement is an improvement nonetheless. I've found the best way to disperse heat from my laptop is to place the top of the laptop closer to the center of the pad, since that's where my laptop's heatpipes are located.
Been using this every day since it arrived, and it works great. I really didn't expect the temperature drop I got. Mid 70s is still pretty high, but it gives me much more peace of mind than low 90s and it has also eliminated my thermal throttling issue.
I do think your mileage may vary depending on your laptop's cooling system, but for those who are experience extreme temperatures like I have and have tried other solutions to no avail, I do think this cooling pad is worth a good try.
Desde como viene empaquetado, con almohadillas contra golpes, y con la garantía y su instructivo en varios idiomas, no es pesado y el material se siente de muy buena calidad, es muy silencioso aún en su modo más potente y la computadora no se resbala, las luces LED le dan un buen detalle y es agradable que se puedan prender y apagar a gusto propio, mi laptop ya no se calienta tanto al usarla(Overwatch).
El único inconveniente es que mi computadora es de 15.6" y se siente justo, el producto marca hasta 17" pero sería de comprobar.
Buy it if you need one
Per quanto riguarda il lato estetico la base si presentava abbastanza bene, piccola compatta ed elegante.
