For the testing phase of this review, there is not much that goes into it, since it is only a laptop AC adapter. To test the Cooler Master USNA95 Ultra Slim Notebook Adapter, I carried it around for a a week using it on a variety of portable laptops, a netbook and my Motorola Droid mobile phone to check the compatibility and ease of having it with me all of the time. I then compiled the data based on a scale of one to ten on several factors that I felt were pertinent to reviewing the adapter for everyday use. For the time that it was carried, I left the adapters for my personal devices at home to ensure compatibility and portability. The Cooler Master USNA95 was taken everywhere with me in my laptop bag, in place of my usual AC adapters for the devices.

Overall, it was a pleasure having only one charger with me. It lightened my everyday load and made charging my devices more efficient than ever. At an MSRP price of $79.95 this power adapter beats the price points for the tremendously over priced OEM replacements and adds more functionality to it as well. For the price, I gave the adapter a rating of 8 because while it is well worth the price, there are other competing adapters in the $50 to $60 range. For ease of use and compatibility I rated each one a 9.
This adapter was simple and very easy to use with little direction or problems. Compatibility scored well also because it was able to power each device I had that I could find and with the USB port you’re recharging of portable devices is nearly endless. Finally, the weight area I gave a 10 because this is a very small and light adapter that takes up little room and does not add much weight at all to my briefcase. In fact, with the amount of adapters it replaces, my bag is actually lighter.
