Conclusion:

When comparing the performance of the Hermes to the rest of the coolers, it did not offer the lowest overall temperatures. But it did offer a substantial decrease in the load temperatures when compared to the notebook operating without a cooler. Reductions of 6 degrees Celsius on the CPU and 4 degrees Celsius on the GPU are nothing to sneeze at and show that the concept works. Feature-wise, the Hermes is not loaded up, but really what else do you need in a notebook cooler other than a stable platform and cooling that works? Hermes does both of these things. While the Hermes did have a way to store the USB cable easily, which was nice, this certainly is not a benefit that would sway my decision one way or the other if I was considering a purchase. The Hermes does have a limit as to the size notebook that it can cool, but with the proliferation of netbooks that are much smaller than the traditional notebook, the Hermes is a viable option for cooling these devices. The Hermes offers a lightweight solution to cooling your notebook that is easy to carry around and looks a bit different from the traditional cooling solutions that are just flat and plain, with no style.

 

Pros:

  • Lightweight
  • Two fans
  • Area to store USB cable in
  • Provides adequate cooling

 

Cons:

  • Cannot set cooler on lap
