The Zalman ZM-NC3500 is more than a notebook or laptop cooler. It also is an enhanced stereo sound system. In addition, it has 4 x USB ports.
Keeping your laptop cool prolongs its life, especially in a country such as South Africa with its hot summer temperatures. Even in winter, your laptop could become hot in enclosed environments such as often is the case in an office where heaters are turned on. This is where the ultra quiet 220mm fan of the Zalman cooler is needed.
The Zalman ZM-NC3500 is powered by a USB cable that you connect to your laptop. It is a simple plug and play. Then press the On button on the Zalman cooler for half a second and it’s good to go.
Once turned on and with your music playing, you can control the volume of the sound on the Zalman cooler with neat buttons situated on the right side of the cooler.
The four USB 2.0 ports are at the back of the Zalman cooler. Next to it you’ll find a wheel controller with which you can control the speed of the fan. The fan is ultra quiet and even at full speed it will not interfere with your concentration.
The price of the Zalman ZM-NC3500 Plus Premium notebook cooler is R920. It is an attractive, sturdy design made from plastic and steel for durability. And while Zalman calls it a “notebook” cooler, it is big enough to cool bigger laptops with 17-inch screens.
