This cooling pad is similar to a laptop cooling pad but it is designed to cool from the top rather than from the bottom and is designed for devices such as cable DVR boxes. My DVR box has been running warm and to keep it cold I actually used a laptop cooling pad upside down. This works much better.
The cooling pad's job is to create circulation. The air should blow towards the device you trying to cool. How well it cools depends not on the power of the cooling pad but on the amount of the ventilation holes in the device. It is also a good idea to vacuum the holes every now and then as dust can clog the holes and reduce circulation.
The cooling pad his 3 fans on the bottom and blows exhaust from the sides. What I really like is that the top is flat and can be used to put something on top of it. I have a lot of computer components stacked up on top of each with ventilation between them and this works beautifully. I got ventilation and gained an extra empty surface.

So far (continuous use of several weeks) the fans are operating quietly. Attached video shows the cooling pad in operation, I hope it helps to illustrate my review.
