The X-Wing will drain $59.99 out of your bank account and won’t do much for your laptop except make it look cool. Unfortunately I cannot recommend this one as it really did not do much for my 17” G2S-X1.
The X-Wing comes with a two-year warranty on defects in manufacture with a direct one to one replacement. However, GlacialTech’s website is fairly difficult to navigate and I was unable to find a place to file an RMA claim at all. At the time of publication I was unable to find out how to RMA the X-Wing if you had an issue that needed resolution.
The X-Wing looks great, it has an amazing sporty look to it and the R1 touch controls are great. The thing is that this is a notebook cooling pad, not just a USB hub or a controller as such it should provide much better cooling that we saw in our testing. Perhaps GlacialTech should stick a 200mm or larger fan in their next version as the small 70mm fan in this one just does not cut it. You do get great looks that will catch the eye of more than a few people but in the end the cooling performance is just not there.
