greatJust received it today and I'm pleasantly surprised. As soon as I turned it on my computers CPU temp went down to 44 45 at idle and only 60 at its hottest. Given that my laptop before this would go right up to 67 at full load this is a huge improvement. I also recently undervolted my laptop which in itself helped with lowering the temperature but I'm extremely pleased with how this notebook cooler performs.
The air stream that comes out is extremely cool and circulates very nicely. For the price you pay for this I would say its worth every penny.
Before the notebook cooler my temps were
CPU 50
HDD 33
TEMP1 33
With the notebook cooler
CPU 44
HDD 32
TEMP1 29

Hoped for betterI bought this to bring the temperatures on my Dell XPS 15z to an acceptable level as well as quieting down the standard fan.
While it does a good job of the cooling side, it isn't very quiet. I can accept the sound of the air moving but there is an annoying buzzing sound which accompanies this device. A friend has a cheapo £5 Belkin one and while not as well constructed, offers similar cooling and it's much quieter.
I did contact OcUK and they informed me that it's normal for the cooler.
I personally wouldn't recommend this product

    Very goodI'd highly recommend it. Bought it a while ago for an overheating acer laptop that was turning itself off. To buy a replacement fan was actually more money than this cooler, so I opted for this and it works very well. It's not a happy laptop, but at least now it's not overheating massively.250 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes

    Greatery sleek design, 2 tiny fans, very quiet. At first didn't seem like the fans where moving much air, but when I put my laptop on top I can feel the air flow. Fits my Asus G1 lappy perfectly. Excellent product!246 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes

    Excellent ProductI bought this because my XPS M1530 kept overheating when playing games. Tried this today and even after an hour of playing Grid, it hasn't yet turned off. Before, playing grid caused overheat. My CPU and graphics temperatures are now both around 20 degrees cooler. I'd highly recommend this product.

    Order process was brilliant - this was my first order with Overclockers and I'll defiantly be back.246 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes

    First Notebook CoolerI chose this cooler because it's well priced, it looks well crafted and because of the light weight.

    The fans are positioned near the back of the cooler at an angle. This allows for the airflow to travel along the bottom of the laptop and access any ventilation openings.

    After 30 mins usage at idle, I've noticed a 5 degree drop in HDD temperature and a 4-6 degree drop in CPU core temp.

    The noise from the fans is audiable - no louder than the cooling provided in laptops and would only be noticed in a quiet environment. The fans can be turned off using a switch at the back if need be.

    Overall, very happy with this purchase and would strongly recommend for gamers or users with high demand applications.238 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes
