This ended up being good in ways I thought it wouldn't, but has issues
I didn't think it would.
I was very happy to find that it fits perfectly on the CRT monitor arm
I have my laptop on, even though the measurements say it should be a couple cm
The speed control is nice, but the top speed is slower and cools less than
the 8cm (smaller) PC fan wired to a usb cable I was previously using (my laptop
still blows hot air at times where as my 5min wire up had kept it from
It looks nice with the mesh, but I found that the bottom edges where the
mesh is folded has sharp pieces, especially on the corners. It wouldn't be so
bad if they weren't sharp enough to catch or damage anything, but they are.
The stackable usb plug may be nice for some, but using it will actually take
power from it and/or the device on top. Also with the direction this makes the
cable go in, it blocks whatever port is next to it no matter where it is placed.
In the end it takes up 2 ports, whether they both be usb or audio ports.
So it would be better to see a bit more power/speed, a bit more care in using
the mesh around the edges, and a standard or flexible usb plug. Another option
that would be nice is legs at the front so you can have more airflow and use it
to raise your laptop more.
In the end, I guess it's ok for the price.
