The cooler is big enough to fit most of the laptops. The weight at 1.5lbs is actually pretty light for laptop coolers which can get up to over 2.5 lbs. The noise level is also very low, I found that my laptop fan was clearly louder than the cooler. That will usually be the case with smaller fans versus big fans that are found on cooling pads.
The design is pretty neat and simple. There are no features such as card readers or USB extensions on the Designer that are often seen on others, all it does is cool the laptop.
The power is drawn via USB cord, which in personal opinion is better since a separate power supply just for a heating pad is excessive and simply a hassle. The argument for separate power is obviously power of the fans since USB can only produce about 2.5W which is about half of what modern desktop CPU heat sinks require. The good thing about the “Designer’s” USB cord is that it is attached and guided. You won’t lose it and it won’t dangle around uselessly. Since laptops have USB placements on different sides and some sides aren’t available this makes it a good wire-management.
The pad is slightly raised which is up to the user to decide whether to call a good feature or not. Personally I like it, in a way it helps you to type since the keyboard is now facing towards you more. There are often times when the laptop is on my chest while I’m laying down reading and if I happened to have a need to type this feature helps a lot.
