Today we take a look to a new cooling pad from Glacialtech. The X-Wing which promises to offer high cooling efficiency for all laptop users. The pad is made up of SECC and plastic making it solidly built and is very stable. It has two non-skid rubber domes, which prevent any slippage of the notebook. User can also adjust the height of the cooling pad with the help of the two legs of the pad.
In fact, it is one of the most attractive notebook stands/cooling pads available in the market with slim and smart design for a various notebook models. In addition, besides the obvious purpose of the device to cool your notebook down, the X-Wing R1 adds a ton of features like a set of touch-sensitive media keys, temperature and fan speed display, and a 3 port USB hub. If the cooler can actually cool our notebook as well, it would be a great product. We will see it later on.
The inbuilt fan placed in the middle of the bottom side of the pad helps dissipation of the heat and noise emanating from the mounted notebook on it. Therefore, the X-Wing helps reduce the load on the system fans. Powered by USB connectivity from the notebook, it comes with 3 USB 2.0 ports to help the users to extend their USB slot and HDD slot from this cooling pad conveniently.
For the convenience of the users, the pad has fan speed and temperature indicator display. It actually helps the users to study the condition of the notebooks. X-Wing has media keys on the touch panel so that the users can actually control the media from the cooling pad. From the ergonomics point of view and color point of view, X-Wing Laptop cooling pad comes in four colors – silver, white, red & yellow:
