The fan is standard 80mm fan. The manufacturer of the fan is unknown and so are specifications and power consumptions. The fan is connected with standard 3-pin fan connector, however only 2 pins are used. The third pin is for fan speed monitoring and not needed in this product.

Testing Hiyatek HY-CF-6288-1 2 in 1 laptop cooling pad & stand

I’ve been using the stand with my IBM Thinkpad T42 for couple weeks now. The product feels high quality and does what it is supposed to do. Only a lack of a power supply is something worth mentioning. With all four USB-slots and fan in use, the limit of my laptops USB-slots power is near. You couldn’t even imagine to put multiple hard disks to the USB-hub in this product. However this problem can be solved by using third party power supply with the stand. There is a slot for 5V power supply in the left side of the product.

I’ve been using the product mainly as a stand for my laptop. It makes using a laptop more comfortable because you can raise the display of the laptop to the height of a traditional display. Cooling power of the product is something I could not really test as my laptop is not the hottest one. However I noticed couple degree decrease in CPU temperature and the bottom of the laptop was a way cooler than without a stand.

Conclusion:

I haven’t seen Hiyatek’s laptop stand in stores so I have no idea what is its price. However if the product’s price is reasonable, I see no reason why this wouldn’t be a success.  Similar products from Logitech costs around 30€ here in Finland. Cooling performance and ease of use is something which makes this product different from other ones. Most coolers I’ve seen are only coolers and not stands. This product ingeniously combines these two features. I could recommend this product to anyone who is using their laptop as a desktop replacement. It makes using your laptop more comfortable yet cooling it with reasonable noise.

Pros:
+ Easy to use
+ Nice performance
+ Combines stand and cooler

Cons:
–  Availability

    Great review! Maybe it will be easier to align the monitors if the both are the same model.
