Conclusion:

The NZXT Cryo LX Notebook Cooler is really much more than just a device to cool down your notebook. It is also a device that expands the number of USB ports your laptop has, improves the ergonomics of the keyboard, and, of course, cools down the components that make your laptop run. The cooler also can fold up and be taken on the road if you use your laptop at more places than just your home or where you work. Having three 120mm fans allows for a large amount of air to be pushed past your laptop while keeping the noise quiet and low pitched. However, there is a downside to having the three fans: they pull a lot of current. They pull so much current, in fact, that some laptops, like my MacBook Pro just can't run it. If your laptop does have the ability to provide enough power or you can find an alternative way to provide power to the cooler (like plugging the DC power into a desktop computer), the cooling benefits can be substantial. Overall, this is a very nice, sturdy, high performing laptop cooler. However, the fact that it cannot be used with some laptops (due to its power requirements) is a pretty large blemish, but one that can be gotten around with some creative thinking. All in all, the NZXT Cryo LX Notebook Cooler is a very good product that will help cool your laptop, make working on it more comfortable, and can provide several additional USB ports that can be used for just about anything.

 

Pros:

  • Cools laptop several degrees Celsius
  • Has a powered four port USB hub
  • Makes typing and using the laptop more comfortable
  • Can fit up to a 17" widescreen laptop
  • Sturdy construction that uses 3mm thick aluminum
  • Ability to fold and be taken on the road

 

Cons:

  • Some laptops might not be able to provide enough power to the fans
