Best cooler I’ve found for my MacBook Pro 15"
You name it, Zalman, Belkin, Antec, Notepal Infinite, I’ve almost tried them all, some even triple the price. The U2 is by far better. Its light weight, simple design, and super super quiet. What I like most is the movable / positionable fans allowing you pin point where the hot spots are which is unique to different brands/model of laptops. In most cases, I don’t even turn on the fan. The vented holes allow good air circulation. My 15″ MBP typically stays below 50C and it fits on top of it perfectly. The large rubber pads keep itself from sliding. For the price you can’t find a better gig than this – at least I haven’t. I give it a 5-stars.
Quiet, sturdy, really cools where it’s needed
This cooler is pretty amazing. I repositioned the two fans right over my laptop hard drive and CPU where my laptop is the hottest and they actually keep them pretty cool. All other laptop fans that I have seen have a central fan, leaving the right side of my laptop where my hard drive is really hot. My hard drive died recently and I think the overheating (I use my laptop over 8h/day) was a major factor. Now, instead of it being about 53 degrees Celsius (127 F) without a fan, it stays around 36 degrees Celsius (97 F)! Much better.
I like that it also raises the back of my laptop. The only problem I have is that you can’t use it to store and carry your laptop as intended unless you remove the two fans, at least with my laptop. Much thinner ones may fare better. I just don’t have the time to remove the fans, rearrange everything to put the laptop into the slot, and then put them into my backpack in such a way that the disconnected fans aren’t damaged every time I need to move my laptop. Reassembling from there is also a pain. So I don’t use that extra “protection and storage” feature and just keep the fans attached and my laptop on top of the frame, even in my backpack.
Aside from that, this laptop fan works great. I can barely hear it, it is made of sturdy material and doesn’t slide, it fits great (about the same size as my 15.4″ laptop), and the underside of my laptop feels only slightly warm after being on all day with the fan beneath it. Even without connecting the fans, it does a decent job cooling. I definitely recommend it.
I love it’s styling and design, I am very happy with it. I especially like that its made of lightweight aluminum, and the fact that you can place the fans where its need most, is what convinced me to buy it. When you place your notebook on it, it gives it the perfect angle to work on and the rubber corners keep your computer from slipping and it also doubles as a carrier to help prevent any scratches on your notebook. The cooling? It does quite well, it lowers my computers’ temp on average of 8 degrees. I added the Thermaltake Mobile Fan 12 External USB Cooling Fan 12CM AF0007
and the combination works far better than I could ever have hoped for. I would have preferred that the fans had a little more “umpf” (more air flow) or the option to purchase additional fans like the ones that come with the Notepal U2. The bottom line is that the Notepal U2 is the best cooler I have used, mixed with the aluminum construction, design, and PRICE, you can’t go wrong.
Finally a cooler that works.
After much research I bought this unit with a few reservations, but after putting it to the test I don’t regret it. I own a 15.4 Alienware gaming laptop which was shutting off due to heat when pushed really hard. Naturally I turned to laptop coolers for a solution, my first 2 tries were disappointing. Small fans, cheap designs either did not cool enough or finally broke down in less than 30 days. For nearly a year I simply put a thick hardcover book on the back of my desk to lift the laptop, eventually I opened the laptop and cleaned the insides while replacing the thermal paste, lowering the temperature a few degrees. Still, when I really needed to set ‘high performance’ and do some serious processor intensive work, the temperature would rocket to above 90C and I had to turn on a table fan, or the laptop would shutdown. So I watched videos, looked at pictures and reviews and finally settled on this device for 5 reasons.
1. The aluminum surface is both elevated and perforated to allow a natural airflow.
2. Heat on the Aluminum would conduct and dissipate.
3. Configurable fans to target you problem areas.
4. No annoying colored LED lights.
5. Stylish, in case the fans didn’t work, I’d replace the hardcover with a real stand.
After unboxing my initial impression was that the fans were to quiet and didn’t generate a strong enough air current. But I am glad to say the device works perfectly and my laptop is running at 73C on ‘High Performance’ with several tasks running.
Cooler Master Notepal U2 – Is the one for macbook pro 15′
Construction: 5 stars.
solid enough to support the weight of the MBP plus some.
Finish: 5 stars.
Doesn’t look cheap.
Fans: 4 stars for the fan. 5 stars for the removable feature.
Not noisy, but i can hear them when the room is really quite. It doesn’t bother me a bit. The removable feature is extremely useful for MBP.
Functions: 5 stars.
Before, watching youtube always brought the temp to 70C. Now, 50-57C depending on how many applications, etc… open.
Package: 5 stars.
The product package is simple. Amazon shipped the package with a gigantic box, which protected it very well during shipping.
Buy buy buy.
Finally a SILENT fan that really works!
First let me say I’ve owned over six different lap top coolers in my life. This is BY FAR the best. First of all, it is SILENT. The only way I can tell it’s working is to put my hand near one of the fans. Secondly, it does it’s job exactly as promised. . .it doesn’t blow air into the computer, it pulls the heat away. It does have an approximately 3 inch high slant to it, I suppose it has to, to accommodate the fans, and I don’t really care for that, but that’s a minor quibble for an otherwise perfect product.
