Cooler Master Releases ErgoStand III Notebook Cooler

Cooler Master announced the new ErgoStand III cooling stand and docking station for up to 17-inch laptops. It comes with a massive 230mm ultra silent fan using Loop Dynamic Bearing technology to provide 72 feet³ per minute of airflow at just 21dBA.

The stand also comes with a built-in fan speed controller to slow down if those 21dBA should be too much for you and an easy to remove and clean mesh. There are six ergonomic height settings for more comfortable viewing angles and the adjustable anti-slip holders can support a 17″ laptop just as well as tablet devices. It also has a built-in 4-port USB hub and various grooves and hooks to keep the cables around the stand tidy and in place.

The ErgoStand III is available in Europe now for an MSRP of €36.90

AOC Reveals 17″ USB Monitor

AOC has just released their new 17″ USB-powered monitor. Utilizing DisplayLink Technology, the E1759FWU is designed to be utilized as a secondary option for desktop PCs and laptops alike.

This monitor will be compatible with both MAC and PC, drawing its power and video signal through a single USB 3.0 cable. If you’re wondering why people would care about such a small screen in this day and age, the monitor will certainly be a handy second screen addition to people who are that way inclined. It also enables the user to have a further clutter-free work space, removing the need for external monitor power.

Providing a 1600 x 900 resolution at 60Hz and a total screen surface size of 17.3″, AOC’s new piece of tech can be used in either portrait or landscape modes in a 10ms response time. Given the features on offer, it’s obvious that this new model doesn’t offer anything ground breaking when compared to IPS and 120Hz monitors – but it will certainly be a nifty addition to those who work on a laptop and are looking for a little extra screen space.

The screen is now available at a price tag of $199, meaning it sits slightly higher than high-end 24″ ‘consumer’ panels currently on the market like ASUS’ VS248H-P.
