Cooler Master Comforter Mini Introduction:
Cooler Master is a well-established name in the computer parts and peripherals world. Since its creation in 1992, it has always been a source of innovation, and kept an updated lineup of products. The mobile accessories offered by Cooler Master are the perfect example that the company is keeping on top of the new trends. And it's for a good reason! Mobile devices are everywhere in this day and age. We use them while on the go mostly to keep us entertained, productive, and also socially connected. So what about home usage you might ask. More and more users consider that browsing the Web, checking emails, and media playback doesn't justify firing up a full blown desktop or even a laptop. It's the era where tablets and smartphones made a swift transition from the couches in Starbucks coffee shops to the couches of our homes!
Today I will present you the Cooler Master Comforter Mini. This reversible lapdesk for laptops and tablets is a light, multi-usage platform that Cooler Master claims to be "Cool and Comfy at the DESK, SOFA, and BED". Will this pad be the new standard for comfort? Let's check it out!
Cooler Master Comforter Mini Closer Look:
The packaging, while being minimalistic and very simple in design, still lives to the Cooler Master standards: elegant color theme, nice layout, and great product pictures. The unit comes wrapped in a thin plastic film and slipped through a thick paper sleeve containing all the copy and pictures. The front displays the company's logo, the product name, three pictures, and note about how the Cooler Master Comforter Mini supports up to 15.6" devices. The back has the same text on top, two more pictures, and more details about the unit towards the bottom.
Unwrapping the Cooler Master Comforter Mini didn't take long. It was nice to see that I didn't have to worry about recycling a whole lot of paper products just to get to it. This unit is all about simplicity it seems, yet it feels very well thought out. Weighting 534 grams and measuring 399 x 267 x 50mm (15.7 x 10.51 x 1.97 inch), the unit feels sturdy while being very easy to handle. The soft-side is covered in some sort of dense black foam underneath the fabric. The hard-side is made of finely textured plastic with anti-slip rubber pieces positioned strategically to keep a laptop or tablet in position. One of the long sides is C shaped, which creates a bump on the soft side and a groove on the hard side. The cavity can be used to store small gadgets or limit cable clutter.
Next are a few shots of what the test units used for the purpose of this review looked like when paired with the Cooler Master Comforter Mini.
