Enermax Aeolus Vegas Notebook Cooler
WHAT WE LIKED:Rigid Aluminum frame, adjustable fan positioning, great lighting effects from the supplied fan, excellent cooling performance, USB pass-through present, cable management
WHAT WE DISLIKED:A bit too bulky to carry around, removable fan could pose future durability concerns if carried around frequently
Having now put the Enermax Aeolus Vegas through our gauntlet, it’s clear that the Lord of the Winds inspired this device and imparted some power into it. With the ability to “lord over” where the winds are blowing, rigid build quality and proper cable management, there’s really not much to dislike here. We genuinely try to find legitimate fault with our review products here at Pureoverclock.com, because it’s not fair to you the consumer to be fed a bundle of exaggerations simply for the sake of making a product seem better than it actually is; the Aeolus Vegas makes that very difficult to do as there is almost nothing worth complaining about. Even it’s price tag of $49.99 is incredibly reasonable for the level of performance and build quality you get here.
Probably the only thing that we could find any sort of fault with here is a lack of portability, but as we have stated in other reviews recently, if you are using this to cool the 17″ notebook that this is designed to cool, then you probably aren’t moving it around too much. If you do decide to travel with it, do mind the fan. With it being detachable, it’s certainly not going to stay in place once you start carrying it with you, and should it become detached there is a risk of the fan becoming damaged beyond use.
Apart from that, this cooling pad does it’s job extremely well. The winds have blown the Enermax Aeolus Vegas straight on toward our Editor’s Choice award.
