Overall not bad. It provides some heat relief. Angle of cooler master takes a bit to get used to. When I'm not playing games I don't use the Coolermaster because the angle gets a bit annoying. Also never received my $10USD mail in rebate. I always fill them out correctly so still waiting.
I don't know much about notebook temperatures because every computer is different but I know that Powerbooks get pretty hot according to google. According to iStat, I've noticed that without the U2 the temp can get as high as 68 when its working hard - 60ish when just running one app. With the U2 the temp hangs around 54-60. These temp readings are for the CPU (top) - the warmest temp recorded. I have no idea if 6-10 degrees really makes a difference on the inside but all I know is that the outside is cool/warm to the touch rather than blistering hot. I've seen some other products cool as much as 20 degrees but they cost $100+...and as far as I know, notebooks run comfortably at around 60 degrees...again, according to google. All in all, I don't regret the purchase. Even if it didn't cool at all, it makes a wonderful prop and puts the notebook at a good angle. Me likey. The adjustable fans are what sold me in the first place and it really is an awesome feature. Also, the portability is awesome, as it works as a shield. Well worth the $25. The only addition I'd make is a fan that could blow across the top of the Macbook/Powerbook at the base of the screen where the vent is. If there was airflow over that then I'm positive the temp would drop at least another 5-10 degrees. I tried it with another USB fan and it seemed to help quite a bit - drop ping the temp to an average of 51.
Who doesn't love a product that serves two purposes?
I bought a smaller version of this (with only 1 fan) a year ago and the clips that hold the fan to the tray broke. They're plastic and I wish the material they had used was more robust (metal for example). Otherwise this is a fantastic design that does the job it needs to do. I loved it enough to buy another one, this time with two fans. Bonus is that this serves to protect my laptop when I travel with it.
Very good cooling pad, but I think I should have gotten the 3 fan one instead cause my laptop still gets a bit hot, because the bottom of my laptop the 2 fans have some spots it cannot reach.
Very good deal with MIR, even though the fan can be positioned underneath laptop heating zones, the air flow coming out from them is unnoticeable. But keep in mind that the laptop do benefit from the elevation of this cooler, it makes the laptops keyboard a little bit more ergonomic and it allow the laptop's vents to breath with the cooler's mesh surface.
it worked great I use it everyday and keep my laptop much much cooler. however ive only had it for a short time and one of the fans is dead and the other one is about to die. I haven't found anywhere that could replace the fans so i guess im just guna have to use it without the fans.
