The Logitech cooling USB-powered Pad N120 is a really light and quiet product. It's so quiet that it's hard to notice that it's even on... except that you can actually feel the airflow it creates. I think it's as quiet (or even quieter) then the internal built-in fans (that many laptops have) which kick on when the CPU temperature gets too warm. This cooling pad draws power from the USB port of your Laptop, so one thing you should keep in mind is that it will reduce your laptop run-time a little. I didn't notice a significant drop in battery life though. I would guess that it may reduce your battery (time) life about 10% to 15%. So, if your laptop can usually run for about 3hrs on a full charge, you may notice that it only can run for 2hrs and 40 minutes if you use this cooling pad.
For it's size, it was much lighter than I had expected. Although, because it is so light... I feel that it may effect it's 'sturdiness'. It's made of thin looking plastic so my real only concern is whether or not it would survive a drop to the floor or the test of time. That's the only thing that stopped me from giving this cooling pad a full 5-Stars. If the build quality seemed more rugged, I would've given it 5 stars.
Pros: -Very Light -Fan is very quiet -Doesn't draw much power from your laptop -Air-flow is significant and does seem to keep your laptop and your lap cooler. -Design is simple, yet well thought out.
Cons: -Material build quality could be sturdier -Price is just a little high (just my opinion)
Conclusion: I have to admit that I haven't used many other laptop cooling pads, so I don't know how this compares to the quality of other similar products on the market. But it does seem to me that this product is well designed, works well, and works efficiently. I received a free unit to review and wasn't counting on actually using this product after reviewing it... but I have since changed my mind, and I find that I really do enjoy using this cooling pad because it works. I would definitely recommend this to a friend or co-worker if they expressed an interest in buying a laptop cooling pad.
