We looked at many different so called "laptop coolers" before we seen this one, and they just didn't seem like they would do the job right. And then we found this one- the Cooler Master NotePal U3. We liked the fact that it is made of aluminum for quick heat dissipation and with 3 moveable fans so the cooling can be concentrated on the "hot spots". We placed the fans (easy to move around and sturdy) where they were needed, and within seconds the temperature on the laptop went from 156 degrees F. to 109 degrees F.!! Now THAT IS IMPRESSIVE! And the variable speed switch for the fans works great. Some of the reviews that we seen said that the construction seemed kind of "flimsy" and wouldn't hold up--this cooler is built like a tank, solid yet easy to handle. And as for moving the fans around, you just squeeze on the sides, pull off, reposition the fan in the holes that you want, and let go! What can be so hard at doing that??? They work great and are very well constructed. And the variable speed switch can be placed anywhere along the sides of the cooler on either side and it's out of the way. If I had to rate this on a scale of 1 to 10, I'd have to give it a firm 15!! And the price of this unit was very reasonable. I looked at coolers that cost between $50 and $150, and NONE of them compare to this one. So don't believe all you read from some of these people, this is one well made unit and we are going to buy another one for our other laptop. You won't be disappointed with this cooler. And the 17" laptop that we are using this on fits like a glove and the rubber on the bottom edge and rubber pads on the top edge really hold the laptop securely with just enough of a tilt on it to make it comfortable to use.
works great. not loud at all and love the speed control it clips on so u can put it on any side u want. and u can move the 3 fans were the hottest stops are. it mite be a little costly but its worth it
I went through 4 coolers before I got to this one. None of the others worked because I couldn't concentrate the airflow where I needed it. When the system is idle I didn't any difference in temperature at all. When I started encoding video is when I saw a big difference. An average of about 7 degrees which makes a lot of difference when it comes to computers. For someone who keeps their computer under a lot strain for hours at a time this is the product for you.
Works like I hoped. The movable fans were a plus because the hot spots on my laptop vary depending on where the laptop is sitting. The fans are very quiet, even on high. The the clip-on fan speed control can get in the way a bit when using the laptop on a sofa or bed. I was only able to find RPM info for cooler pad fans online and the variable speed was my main reason for purchasing this unit. Good buy with good results so far.
Good for regular use but average for gaming purposes. This cooler is big enough to handle my 18 in laptop and interchangeable placement of the fans is a very good feature as the heat sink is needed on the left top corner of the laptop. The fans are extremely quiet I can barely hear them even on maximum settings, however the fans are not that fast as advertised. When using for gaming these fans provide fair enough cooling so the graphics card does not reach dangerous temperature but it does heat up but that is part of gaming.
I bought this item because my laptop was getting to warm. It is above and beyond my expectations and I will be buying another for my partners computer.
I have been using this for less than a month. So far, the fan works like a charm, no noise and cools my 15.6" Dell 15R. I needed to move the fans around to get the optimal cooling effect. The clips are quite easy to use, once you figure out the method. There is no on/off switch. So I generally unplug the USB in the morning when I start the computer. By mid morning, I plug it in and leave it on until I turn off the system by late afternoon. I lift the computer several times a day to feel the bottom for heat (that's how I check for cooling spots). The bottom usually feels quite cool. My computer is slightly smaller than the pad, but it does not slip or budge at all. Just make sure the back sits on the two rubber clips on each side. They prevent slippage and movement. I think this product, if it holds up, is a good value. Especially you can move the clips around. I'm planning to treat the fans with WD40 once I start hearing noises, like some comments I read. Hope this helps!
worked when I bought it in March 2011 and quit working within 6 months so I rated the value poor if it still worked it would have been a good value
First I would like to say this product was sent to my home within 2 days of ordering standard shipping. My laptop was very hot, but after using this product I saw a 100% change in my laptop's temperature. I was amazed at the difference between this product and my last belkin fan. This product is QUIET, EASY TO USE, SIMPLE, AND THE FANS ARE ADJUSTABLE. I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT AND THE PRICING IS GREAT TOO.
This product is awesome... it's so quite you can't even hear it running... the adjustable fans are awesome... it's by far the best laptop cooler on the market... the price is worth every penny... i recomend it to anyone that needs a laptop cooler like i did... Cooler Master NotePal U3,
Woow! great product like that you can move the fans in any location of the pad,nice and quiet good pad material. Wish it had more external usb ports.
it works great but it's a little big for a laptop with a 15 1/2 inch screen. overall great product. movable fans let you put them where your laptops hot spots are.
WITH THREE FANS THAT CAN BE PLACED TO MATCH THE FANS IN YOUR LAP TOP, MAKE THIS VERY FLEXIBLE IN MEETING THE VARIOUS CONFIGURATIONS OF LAP TOPS.
I bought this for a new 17.3" computer. I bought it with the three fans instead of the two fan type because they are moveable quickly and where you need them to cool. It's very quiet and is USB plug and go. I think the 2 fan is okay for 15.6 or less, but I bought to fit the 17-19" laptops. Has a nice easy tilt to it so hands rest naturally. The large elastic 2" band that comes with it is placed across the bottom, and it really holds the computer securely in place. The only thing I found wrong with the one I bought was the USB connection was not as tight as it should have been. But it's just a fault on this one I bought. This shouldn't be a common issue as to the design of the item. It's a part of it that was faulty and that's why I gave it a 4 star. Now it's a pain to go back to the store and return it for such a dumb reason. Other than this one thing, I recommend it. It does great at keeping the laptop cool and is very quiet you almost don't know it's on.
Fan Goes Were You Need Them Not Were The Maker Puts It!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I use this everyday. It is extremely quiet. So much so that I forget to turn it off. I read a ton of reviews and decided on this one because I could customize where I place the fans for optimal coolness. I have very happy with it!
I like this fan pad a lot. It's the first one I have ever owned but compared to ones I have seen that friends have, I think it's worth the money. It comes with an extra usb port also. As for traveling with the fanpad, I imagine there are others that might be more travel friendly, but I don't haul my laptop with me anywhere, aside from around my house, so it's not a problem for me. It's perfect for the size of my laptop(my laptop is 17.3 inches diagonal), I haven't measured the temperature of my laptop before or after I got this, but I do know it helps out a ton. I also love how you can adjust the fans to wherever you want them and adjust the fan speed. It's also extremely quiet on all fan settings low-high, it's so quiet I forget to unplug the fan pad when I'm moving my laptop around the house. Overall I am incredibly happy with this purchase despite the fact it's more costly than other fan pads, other people I have known still have overheating issues with some of the cheaper fan pads, and I have never had that problem with this fan pad, it keeps it cool, and if I'm doing TONS of stuff on my laptop it gets warm, but never hot anymore. I love it.
Does what it says it will do. I would buy again.
I like this product. It works fine on my 17.3" laptop. I like the way the fans are adjustable to the hot spots on the computer.
This was a great deal because I have tried so many. Thanks.
