Overall
I liked the X-style of this cooler, the feel of it, and enjoyed how light the whole thing was.  However, what most impressed me was how quiet the fan is.  I like cooling products that I can’t even tell I am using, and the Cooler Master NotePal X-Slim certainly fits the order.  It is light enough that I can see throwing it in my laptop bag and bringing it with me, unlike many I have seen.

The only thing that bothered me was how far the USB pass-through stuck out.  The laptop I tested with has a total of three USB ports, so I felt this wasn’t really needed.  A simple USB plug-in would have used less space and worked just as well to power the device.  That being said, I can see how some would certainly like it, so I will not be knocking down the rating much based on that.  Overall it was a solid product and worth consideration.
