Lightweight Portable Metal Mesh Laptop Cooling Stand w/ Built-In 160mm Fan - Black

Keep your laptop cool with this Metal Mesh Laptop Cooling Stand from Monoprice!

This stand has a metal mesh surface, which combines with the large 160 mm cooling fan to help dissipate damaging heat away from your laptop or notebook computer. The mounting surface measures 12 9/16" wide by 11" deep.

A built-in 4-port USB hub is positioned on the back of the stand. The fan and hub are powered by USB power via the 23" USB A male to mini-B male cable that is included with the stand. A switch on the hub turns the fan on or off and a blue LED indicates when USB power is applied.

Not what I was expecting...

Pros: Cheap (thank-you Monoprice!)
Kind of quiet
Decent air flow

Cons: Cheap (both dead after less than a year)
Kind of quiet (fan is noticeable)
USB Hub (One hub worked, other hub didn't)

Bought two back in December of 2013. One had a hub with only two working ports, other one had four working (powered) ports. Getting used only a few hours a night after work, one fan stopped working after a few months. The other one continued until about six months with limited use. I had work purchase me a couple cooling fans from another online retailer.

Having bought Monoprice in the past, I was expecting everything to work so I chucked the boxes the first night. Only writing this review as I am looking at two new cooling pads and debating if I want to try another "cheap" cooling pad/hub. I'm loving the cables from Monoprice, but I'm not sure if I'm ready to invest in actual electronics at this time...

Very nice but noisy fan

Pros: Great ventilation. USB hub works well.

Cons: Fan is a little noisy.

The fan makes a slight rapid thumping noise when on. Even with the fan off the laptop runs
cooler as the stand has a little more clearance than what it would have on a flat surface.
The stand is tilted on a 15% or so angle so it helps with ventilation. I suspect the reason the fan
is noisy is it was originally made for 12V instead of the 5V put out by the USB connection.
This also means the fan ought to run just about forever.

The angle and thickness of the stand are perfect for a desk as your wrists keep your arm off
the desk or surface you normally work on.ll

Not bad...

Pros: Does the job, quickly cooled my laptop.

Cons: Kinda noisy
barely fits 15" laptop

Overall no complaints. The rubber feet on my IBM Lenovo barely fit on it to give the clearance between the stand and the laptop for airflow, but the item description does say, "portable fan". Within minutes, my laptop is noticeably cooler, but the fan is louder than a no longer available fan that I purchased from Monoprice earlier in the year. This setup is a better construction and works better though. It's a good buy. Turn on some music, and I can't hear the fan.

Monoprice 160mm Fan Laptop Stand

Pros: -Great Price
-LED looks cool
-Fan is quiet (when it works)
-4 USB ports!

Cons: -Have to slap or jolt the stand to get the fan to spin up
-Not wide enough for my 15.6" Asus N56vz

Cheap quality construction, but the price definitely makes it worthwhile. My 15 inch laptop barely fits on it. The fan must be jolted to start. I recommend, but make sure your laptop will fit.

Pros: - Perfect size for 13" MacBook Pro
- Quiet
- 4 USB ports

Cons: - Plastic would love this design in aluminum to efficiently dissipate even more heat

I use my Mac for music recording with live microphones, so low noise is a top priority. I also constantly bemoan the lack of more than 2 USB ports, since I have various input and musical devices (mouse, keyboard, mic interface, guitar POD) that I need to use simultaneously. This helped both issues.

After my laptop overheated simply by running for hours multiple times, messing up multiple recording sessions, I gave this a try and the next morning, the laptop's underside had gone from scalding to reasonably warm. I cannot hear the noise from the fan, nor do I detect it on microphones even when they're a few feet away. Another win for Monoprice.
