Xclio Hovercraft Notebook Cooler ReviewPropane - June 23, 2010

The Xclio Hovercraft is a pretty solid notebook cooler, providing strong cooling benefits as well as ergonomic benefits. The six fans allow for a good deal of airflow through the cooler and under the laptop. The Hovercraft can be powered through a USB port on either side of the cooler but cannot function as a USB HUB. While operating, the fans in the Hovercraft have a blue glow that is not very noticeable. The fans are a single color and cannot be changed to any other color. The largest drawback is also one of its strengths. The Hovercraft has a large footprint that allows the cooler to easily outperform the no cooler at all results and deliver temperatures that are in the middle of the pack. The large size delivers the added bonus of angling the keyboard to both raise the screen height and improve the ergonomics to help prevent prevent eye and back strain when slouching over the laptop. If you are limited in terms of desk space, the Hovercraft is probably not the right choice for you. Overall, this is a very nice cooler, and as long as you don't mind blue LEDs or the functionality of a large cooler, it would be a nice choice as a laptop cooler.
