Belkin Laptop Cooling Stand: clean design and excellent cooling performance
This review is about the Belkin Laptop Cooling Stand. A laptop cooling pad that promises also comfort, along with cooling… Just like most active coolers, this one is USB powered too, so it drops hot temperatures (that appear when your CPU or GPU are heating up due to heavy program use) by removing the hot aid drawn out of your computer vents.
Just like most Belkin coolers, this one has got one fan that is in charge with the entire cooling process… Built of plastic, with a anti slip bottom, this notebook cooler is based on air-flow technology (which is already tradition for Belkin), therefore it doesn’t draw the heat out of the laptop, but it directs it away from your computer. Important detail to mention, it has a one year warranty!
In terms of design, we can notice the wave aspect (again, not a surprise, if you remember the F5L001 and F5L028) that allows air to circle the hot spots and cool them down, so nice looks that also improve the cooling of the PC. The cushioned bottom of the laptop cooler assures comfort and doesn’t allow the heat to reach your feet when forced out of the laptop.
And now we get to the performances chapter: comfy? Yes, but than again, it should feel this way (the price isn’t exactly cheap). Does it really cool down the laptop heat? Yes, but than again, it should do that, too. And just the way Belkin used us, no on-off switch, no fan speed control (and the thing is that one may like his cooler run/to dissipate the heat depending on the amount of heat that there is, thus lowering the noise when the laptop is not hot).
So should you buy the Belkin Laptop Cooling Stand? Well, if you own a laptop that is around 17’’ sized, if you tend to use your notebook on your lap, rather than on your desk, if you have bought other Belkin coolers (and you were fine with the cooling, but not with the comfort) and got attached to the brand… no matter the age, the sex or something like that, the stand does what the company promises, but for too much money!
The price for the Belkin Laptop Cooling Stand is around dollars on Amazon.com. Is it a good deal? No! For this money, one can certainly get a better cooler that doesn’t lack in terms of comfort and for a little bit more you can get a hot multimedia pad that cools and feels even more comfortable, too.
