    Len seems to know a lot of pcs....
    looks really cool, but 4 the reasons given by Len i wouldnt buy it. i would hate it that my usb ports got screwed up by a thing like that.

    Yeah Len is right, it also can burn your MB with such stress, not recommended for ppl who don´t use true power supplys above 460W, and problably, if you have some bad lucky, it´ll screw your power supply and your MB.

    But it was a great idea :P USB can take more than 100 plugged things on it, if your power supply can handle it. And we don´t use nearly 6 USB things (keyboard, mouse, camera and webcam, printers, cellphone and some monitors.)

    I can't remember if the thread time-out limit is 2 weeks or 2 months, so...

    This item was created as a gift for the geek-who-has-everything. As with the famous plug-in coffee warmers, most people don't actually use them beyond a few weeks after they get it. You might set your coffee on one, but you probably don't bother turning it on. You'd finish your coffee before you needed it heated.

    I say that, and I typically have to reheat my coffee 2-3 times. As for the cooling USB device, I'd really hesitate to have condensation from a beverage anywhere near a USB plug. But the holidays are coming; I'll remember this one.

    Do what I did and buy this accessory for your computer:
    Thermaltake X-Ray

    It's great because my car charger chargest my phone in about 1/4th the time the wall one does.
