I just noticed that mine shoots more air out of the the intake than it does the exhaust. The fan is spinning the right way, its just an aweful design. Its using a freaking blower in an open air design, this has no hope of doing anything but making the laptop hotter. Problem is there is no channel for the air. It just sits there with an exhaust above and an intake behind. Due to the fan choice, its just blowing air out the back instead of actually channel it upwards.
EDIT: Just looked at the package and apparently this is intentional. Dumb design if you ask me, I seems like it would be more efficient to blast cool air at it as opposed to sucking away warm air radiating off the case.
It still works as a good stand, but I might as well cut off the usb power as all this is good for is draining my battery faster.
I also received a shipping notification for the cooler. I was thinking about canceling the order if I do not hear from them by the beginning of next month (mail in rebate needs to be post marked by 7/19).
I'm planning on printing. Packing slips and invoices are usually not the same.
Have you had issues with Frys in the past and rebates because of the invoice or the online order tracking form? I don't recall if I have ever done a Frys rebate before.
The paper titled "Invoice" that was shipped in the box with the cooler and the online "order tracking" form seem to have the same info. Do you know if Frys or the rebate company these are going to have a history of denying claims for submitting the "Invoice" vice the "order tracking" form?
On another note...this is a much "louder" laptop cooler when compared to a "Cooler Master" laptop cooler I rcvd FAR from NewEgg.
I guess if you like "white noise" with your computing it's fine!
