      "What I did notice is that the normally-hot surfaces stayed cool, even after hours of continuous use. This is a feat that no other laptop cooler I have used has managed. With an average online price of $35 at time of press, the NotePal U3 represents a long-needed boon to the mobile power user."

      TBCS:  4/5 Approved : December 2010

      "For less than $30, you cannot go wrong with the Notepal U3. It features a very solid construction, the fans are extremely quiet, and it is lightweight. Throw in the piggyback USB dongle, along with the fact that the fans can be positioned to optimize cooling and you have a winner."

      "Every laptop is different and produces heat from different spots so being able to move the fans around to concentrate on those spots really makes a difference.  I really like that you can control the speed of the fans too."

      » Details  Innovation Award : November 2010

      "Strictly from a utilitarian perspective, the Cooler Master NotePal U3 is quite effective. The aluminum mesh design is already pretty good for heat dissipation and it’s further improved by the innovative “place it anywhere” triple fan configuration."

      "I was very impressed by the innovation that went into the cooling properties of the U3. Daresay the quick-release fans are the best innovation in notebook cooling for 2010. The U3 easily defeats common notebook ailments."

      » Details 5 out of 5 : October 2010

      "The Notepal U3 is an effective cooler.  It's lightweight, weighing in at just over 2 1/4 pounds.  I like the fact that is has two functions.  You can use it as a laptop cooler and then as a laptop carrier."

      "Great looking with a ton of cool ideas and concepts packed in a very simple design."

      » Details  Editors Choice : September 2010

      "For the cost of a carrying case for your 15-17 inch laptop you get not only a case but and ergonomic laptop cooler with the ability to fully customize your thermal solution specific to your laptop. No other (to my knowledge) laptop cooler offers these kinds of abilities for the same price point."

      Pro-Clockers: Editors Choice : August 2010

      "The Cooler Master NotePal U3 is a great product as it offers a lot in the form of versatility. It's weight is kept down due to the aluminum makeup, and the availability to cool laptops up to 19 inches, while are both great features end up being only a small part of what it offers."

      » Details Silver Silicon Award : August 2010

      "[The NotePal U3] does what it is intended to do and is lightweight and easy to move where you want it. If you have it on you lap for extended periods of time, which we did, surprisingly it doesn’t become a nuisance like some of the other heavy laptop coolers on the market can."

      » Details  Gold : August 2010

      "The Cooler Master NotePal U3 is a very nice and unique cooler. It is very large in size however the size itself isn't a hindrance at all during use. I was able to use the NotePal U3 on my lap without any discomfort. The aluminum is very light and cool even on bare skin."
