NoteBook Cooling Solutions are one of the least explored area,
mainly because of the necessity of it (Notebooks shouldn’t really get too hot!),
and the extent of it, due to the heat producers being so internally woven withn
the Notebook shell itself. Therefore, to improve the value of such an accessory,
Vantec’s Piano 101 integrates a compact and portable Notebook cooler with a
speaker/subwoofer combo, to serve as a Notebook Cooler and a pair of decent
speakers at the same time.
As seen, the Piano 101 series come in white and black color,
and we received a black color sample of it:
There you go! The glossy black coating on the “mostly-plastic”
Notebook Cooler plays a fine tune with the Piano Model name. Looks-wise, it
is definitely slick and being mostly made of plastic, the weight is light so
you can bring it about with you quite conveniently.
As seen above, the Piano 101 offers it’s key functions along
the front panel, and you can fine tune the audio functions such as volume and
bass, and even offers a fan speed control on it for the fan cooler for the Notebook.
It also integrates within it a USB 2.0 Hub.
