  Great cooling gadget!

| | See all LizLen's reviews (1)

Just got this & it's totally done the job. Really easy to use, powers away without any AC, just from the USB. It is working well and my old laptop is keeping very cool. Great value and free postage too. This has to be the cheapest one I have seen, saw same one in local major computer store for 3x more.

  Simple and effective

Does exactly what it is meant to do. Cools my 15" Macbook Pro quite a bit after checking before and after temperatures via a widget. It's nota bother it overhangs a bit. Even without the fan it is useful if I want to put it on my lap so now I don't have to feel an iron is burning my legs. The fan is noticeably loud but then stops the internal fan kicking off so probably only a little more than usual.

  You get what you pay for, but it works

Im a university student, I have bought three of these over the course of 2 years i think -because im on my laptop all the time!
Yes it does slow down and cut out every now and again but nothing a screwdriver and a quick clean of the fan won't fix if your careful.
Plus theres nothing stopping you from getting a refund or renewing if it breaks.
Compared to other cooling fans I have had and paid more for, this is adequate for cooling my laptop.

  Rubbish

This is crap.. broke in less than a week, worked fine at first cooled well and was quiet. But after a few uses the fan started jamming and a blade fell off.. then it work ... then it stopped again... frustrating as hell... avoid spend a little extra and get one that actually works for more than 5 minutes

  Reduced in price for a reason

It is not cooling my MacBook at all, now i've got to listen to 2 fans blaring out (i'm wearing headphones whilst writing this as the Belkin non-cooling platform is so loud). At best it's a 10-quid angled wrist rest. Seeking a refund.

I bought this laptop cooling stand for my 15.4" HP Laptop, and it fits just brilliantly! Even with a bigger laptop size, I reckon it would do the job (just maybe over-hang on the sides a bit!) :)

With only one fan, I was a bit worried that it wouldn't do the job, but I was so surprised. It keeps the laptop cooled throughout, and even has a gap so the air can circulate underneath too.

It's powered by just one USB port, and nothing else, brilliant! No silly wires or silly installations either!

Only one downside is, thestand for the Cooling Stand at the back doesn't lock into place. So for instance, if you have your laptop on the Cooling Stand on a table, if you jolted the stand with a slight movement backwards, it would collapse a little - but nothing too serious! :)

Grab a bargain!! :)

  Not at all durable

Worked really well for about a day at which point one of the blades kept getting caught, making an irritating sound, so I was forced to cut it off. After this though the same problem occured again with a different blade! A total waste of money

This product is brilliant. It makes a noticeable difference in my laptop as my processor is right were your forearm is when you are typing so I could notice that it was extremely hot and now..well I wouldn't say its like ice because lets face it its a processor but it is significantly cooler than it was. So overall this is a brilliant bit of kit but I do have one draw back from it...it interferes with my TV aerial :(

  Totally worth it!

I was really sceptical about buying this, I thought it would make minimal difference and my laptop constantly overheating was just a sign to buy a new one. But I am so pleased it got this, it has made a incredible difference. Previously my laptop would run with its fan on full speed and still overheat, now it is cool and much quieter, all you can really hear is the fan on the cooling platform which isnt bad at all. I am really surprised how effective this is, and if you use it on a desk it gives you a lovely typing position. I really recommend this to anyone who gets annoyed about overheating laptops!

  It worked... for about a week

When I first used this, I thought it was fantastic. But somewhere in the second week, it just decided to fail. But judging by everybody's positive reviews, it seems I may just be the unlucky one to receive a faulty item.
