http://tbn0.google.com/images?q=tbn:2j_YkIwGdsX5bM:http://www.vgnetwork.it/images/Cooler_Master/Choiix-Air-Through-Stash.jpgWhen buying a laptop performance, temperature, and storage are the major deciding factors. What if I told you one product could improve your laptops performance, decrease temperatures and also increase storage space? If you say I am crazy that’s is fine if you are indifferent that is fine as well but I digress; my point is this Cooler Master has launched another great “Choiix” products called the Air-though Stash some of our return readers may remember the  Mini Air-Through we did not too long ago. The Stash is the Mini’s big brother. Not only can it cool and work as a USB hub like the Mini, but it can also double as a HDD enclosure essentially making itself a one stop shop for any Laptop lover. Let’s get a closer look as see what you think:

Conclusion:

I used the Stash for a few days with my netbook and I must say I don’t know what I would do without it. The extra USB, ergonomic design, and HDD enclosure make this cooler a must have for anyone wanting to squeeze a little more out of their laptop. If you are one of the ones that jumped into the netbook zone early and ended up with only a 4GB SSD then the Choiix Air-Through Stash is exactly what you need. Although the cooling only made a difference of about 2 degrees between the cooler and lying directly on my desk the cooling is still impressive for an all plastic design.

Would I recommend this product? I think the answer is prevalent in the above paragraph but I will break it down further. Where can you buy a usb hub, a notebook cooler, and an hdd enclosure all for under $30? The Stash is everything you need in a notebook cooler and more. If you are looking for a new cooler for your notebook or netbook I strongly suggest checking out the Choiix Stash.

Pros:

  • Price
  • Hub Built in
  • HDD Enclosure Built in 
  • Decent Cooling
  • Ergonomic Design
  • Simple functional Design (as is most Choiix Products)
Cons:
  • I Would Like to see a Performance Version That Incorporates Aluminum
