With faster and faster components going into notebooks, and, many times, the more and more heat is output from these power-machines, the greater the need for adequate cooling.  Many business-grade laptops pack high-end components, and thus the need for mobile cooling for comfort, or simply increasing the lifetime notebooks is increasing.  Vizo's Ninja HS takes a simpler approach to this need, with a rather skeletal, versatile, and mobile solution.

 The box is rather low-profile, and has plenty of features, pictures, and specifications listed and depicted.  The packing was pretty good and everything looked well-protected.

The contents are simple.  You get the cooling fan base, and the two supporting legs, and a USB cable to to power the fans and allow for the three expansion USB ports to be used on the cooler.

Fan Base

The fan base itself is rock solid and is made of aluminum and houses the two 70mm fans.  The surface has a smooth, attractive finish with the Ninja and Vizo brandings cleanly displayed.  The top is finished off with a grey mesh, which is also sturdy.  The right side of the base has the USB power port and the three expansion ports.  As you can also see from the bottom, the fans can be adjusted from side-to-side, which is for the hotspot "targeting" that the Ninja HS really looks to fulfill.  The housing is as open as possible, which seems to have been a design philosophy all the way through.

The mesh surface has an airy hexagon geometry, and as mentioned before, is also quite sturdy, and its grey color adds a nice contrast against the black housing.

The legs assemble easily onto the base, using two thumb screws which are on a track so that you can position the fans right where you need them.  This also makes for quick disassembly for taking it on the go.  The legs also have a roller on the upper part which makes "scooting" your notebook around very easy.  Not a feature I'd have come up, but it's actually something I've grown fond of. 


Final Thoughts

The Vizo Ninja HS' fans are whisper quiet and provide a continuous breeze of air on the bottom of the cooler  The surface of the notebook is noticeable cooler to the touch, and the internal fan has to work far less hard.  The angle is also a point which I like, as it puts it into a comfortable position for typing (I'm using it under my notebook as I type this.  The rolling wheels make moving convenient, and "tear-down" is quick and easy if I want to toss it into my bag when travelling somewhere.  The light, skeletal nature has also grown on me, and Vizo points out the lack of wasted materials as a positive in this regard.  The side-to-side and up-down movement of the fans really is a nice feature to target hotspots and reduces the need for larger, higher speed, and louder fans.  Overall, despite being unconventional, the Ninja HS has grown on me!

Pros:

  • Sturdy, good build quality
  • Fully adjustable fan position
  • Lightweight
  • Comfortable angle
  • 3 USB 2.0 Ports
  • Quiet

 

Cons:

  • No fan speed adjustment
