Introduction to Zalman Notebook Cooler

The Zalman Notebook Cooler might seem pretty basic on the outside, but don't be swayed by it's rather average, smart exterior. The insides of the Zalman notebook cooler range are incredibly high quality, have near silent performance, and the aluminium construction helps to dissipate heat rapidly.

As with any notebook cooler, the Zalman Notebook Cooler series brings faster notebook performance, greater notebook stability, and helps protect those important files on your notebooks hard drive.

Notebook overheating is an ever growing problem as notebook components become faster and hotter. A Zalman notebook cooler will not only keep your laptop cooler, but it will also do it quietly, and reliably, for years to come.

Why Choose a Zalman Notebook Cooler?

There are plenty of laptop cooler brands out there, but if you are looking for a truly reliable, quiet and high quality notebook cooler, then Zalman really is the best choice for you. The Zalman notebook cooler series has come from decades of research which has made Zalman an industry recognised leader in quiet computer cooling technologies. The Zalman notebook cooler is no exception to the quality of the other Zalman products either!

Zalman Notebook Coolers are some of the world's quietest notebook coolers which use fans, As well as leading in quiet notebook coolers, the Zalman notebook cooler is also one of the most powerful.

Zalman Notebook Cooler Models

There are quite a few of the Zalman notebook coolers which you will definitely want to take a look at, and fortunately I will summarise them here for you in our Zalman Notebook Cooler Guide!

Zalman NC3000U

Zalman Notebook Cooler ZM-NC3000

The Zalman notebook cooler ZM-NC3000 is my all time favorite Zalman notebook cooler. The Zalman NC3000 works off a single super quiet 220mm fan which provides great airflow, with next to no sound. This great performance with little audio nuisance helps catapult this great Zalman notebook cooler in to my all time favorite spot!

The Zalman NC3000 works easily on laptops up to 17 inches Widescreen.

The Zalman NC3000 notebook cooler comes with some great additions including a variable fan speed wheel, and an on/off switch!

The Zalman NC3000 comes with two variations

ZM NC-3000U has a 4 port USB hub, and a power adapter to ensure any device can be plugged in.

ZM NC-3000S simply has a USB pass through, this means you still keep a USB space, and you do not have to carry a power adapter around with you!

Zalman Notebook Cooler ZM-NC1000

The Zalman NC1000 was the first of the exquisite Zalman notebook cooler series, but it still does not disappoint. With two quiet fans, a USB pass through, power switch, and eve a variable fan speed wheel, the Zalman NC1000 notebook cooler is a powerful notebook cooler, which makes barely a sound!

The Zalman NC1000 is designed for laptops up to 15", if you have anything larger, but still want two smaller fans, then you might want the slightly larger notebook cooler by Zalman, the NC2000!

Zalman Notebook Cooler ZM-NC2000

The Zalman NC2000 is the big brother of the NC1000. It is identical to it's small Zalman notebook cooler, except in size. The Zalman NC2000 can easily support a widescreen 17 Inch laptop, without even breaking a sweat.

The Zalman NC2000 comes with many of the same features as the NC1000, but includes an inbuilt USB cable box in the base of the notebook cooler, and the USB pass through port has one port on each side of the Zalman notebook cooler, which might not seem like much, but TRUST me, it makes things much easier!

Like the Zalman notebook cooler Zalman NC1000, the NC2000 has a variable fan speed dial, and an on/off switch!

Zalman Notebook Cooler ZM-NC1500 Mini

I thought I best just mention the Zalman Notebook Cooler Zalman NC1500 Mini. The NC1500mini is similar to the rest of the Zalman NC1500 series, but is designed for notebooks up to 12 inches in size.

I think it is safe to say that the Zalman NC1500 notebook cooler is designed for MacBook users who are suffering from ever increasing overheating notebook problems.

Zalman Notebook Cooler ZM-NC1500

The Zalman NC1500 is just what it sounds like, a mid-way laptop cooler, not quite large enough for a wide screen 17inch behemoth, but more than capable of handling a large 15 inch notebook.

The Zalman NC1500 also feels just a little bit more portable than the other Zalman notebook coolers in the NC range. Nevertheless it remains a great notebook cooler.

Unlike the other notebook coolers in the Zalman NC range, the NC1500 does not have fold-able legs, which some people may find annoying.

The USB pass through, fan speed dial and on off switch are all present in this Zalman notebook cooler, and are located at the back, for easy access.

Zalman Notebook Cooler ZM-NS1000F

The Zalman NS1000F is more of a business notebook cooler than it's predecessors. The stand works incredibly well for those of us who have to use a notebook on a desk, and tis Zalman notebook cooler give an adjustable angled stand to help you get the perfect typing position with your notebook cooler.

The Zalman NS1000F comes with all the usual high quality features, however it does have a smaller fan, which does mean it can be a little noisier than the other Zalman notebook coolers.

Despite the size of the fan however, you will probably still have trouble hearing the whirr, especially if you are using your Zalman notebook cooler in a noisy office environment.

Other Notebook Coolers

There are more than just Zalman notebook coolers out there, and if a Zalman notebook cooler is not for you, then you might want to check out some more notebook coolers and laptop coolers.

If you are looking for silent notebook coolers however, a Zalman Notebook Cooler could be the answer to your prayers, especially if you have been suffering from overheating notebook problems!

      The price will most likely be in-line with the other Zalman units, it is being offered as an alternative to other coolers, rather than an upgrade!
