Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The DEEPCOOL M6 is made mostly of plastic and measures 465mm wide (18.3") by 358mm deep (15.5") and stands 75mm tall (2.95") in the back. There is a ten degree angle on the top of the M6 that allows the near 3" height in the rear to slope down to point as the top and bottom halves meet. The majority of the top surface is covered with a black mesh to match the black plastic frame, but there is also a 57mm subwoofer centered at the top of the mesh insert. On the left and right sides of the M6 you will be looking at what is essentially a wedge shaped cooler, but there are silver framed "windows" that have red steel mesh inserted. While it looks like it is made for ventilations, both of the red areas are backed with 52mm tweeters to complete the 2.1 speaker system included in this unit. Around the back you will find the connectivity panel for the audio pass-through cable and USB power source, along with a fan speed dial. That only covers one side though, on the other side in the back, you will also find that there is a four port USB hub in place as well.
Delving into the cooling system, the M6 offers a 140mm fan to try to cool the laptop you are using. The 11 blade fan they chose in this cooler is capable of speeds in the 750 to 1100 RPM range with just the twist of that dial. This will allow the 140mm fan to deliver up to 47.35CFM of air flow with a sound rating of only 21 dB(A). While I don't feel that is enough air flow to sufficiently cool a laptop, the illustrations on their website make it seem like the air coming through the keyboard to cool your hands is where most of the air flow will go, and with my specific laptop, the intakes are small, and require much more force to properly cool my mobile CPU - but as I addressed earlier, I am sure these companies know this already. This is why there was so much development in adding audio; you have to give the customers more.
The M6 from DEEPCOOL is not currently available anywhere inside of the US, but it will likely hit shelves in some of the more popular "office" box stores across the country. I was able to find stock in both Australia and in India, but outside of them, I was unable to locate any even in the EU markets at this moment. In the Australian listings I saw, they were asking right around $41 AUD, and with the current conversion, that equates to roughly $38 USD. The listings in India are going for 2350 Rs, and even there the price conversion works out to a very similar number when changing over to US dollars.
For roughly $40, I am looking for clean audio, I am looking to see if the air flow is sufficient, and we need to see if it is useful on the desk before I can say for sure if the M6 is worthy of this price point.
