Thermaltake Massive SP Notebook Cooler Review

Thermaltake tries its hand at notebook cooling and external speakers. The Massive SP is now our second entry in this market. Let's take a look.

Now if I were to go off of what we have seen previous to this, with the sound failure from DeepCool and their M6 audio solution, we would have never given these types of coolers another chance. While that cooler seems to have gotten rave reviews, mine sounded very poor, and even though they took it back to see what was wrong, we never got any satisfaction as to if the product just sucked or if it were actually somehow broken. It is easy to see how that sort of experience would leave a bad taste in the mouth of someone. But, the reviewer in me knows better than to let one product get you down, and that we should open our eyes and give a fair shake to the next company in line to offer us such a product again.

 

Even with very close ties to my Thermaltake representative, and them knowing what I wrote about the previous submission, they still sent over their own solution to this idea. Following along with the Massive series of coolers, like we addressed in the Massive 14 Squared review, there was, and here is the second new cooler with that naming. I have to say they either got a huge set of brass b@*&$ over at Thermaltake to offer it to a guy who just trashed the last one to hit the lab, or they have a much better product that they are proud of, and think there is no way we could give it the same sort of review as the M6 received.

 

What has brought us here today is the Massive SP from Thermaltake. The idea here is simple, offer a notebook cooler based on a 140mm LED fan, keep similar aspects of the Massive 14 Squared yet still have some individuality, add a pair of 30mm speakers to the back to raise the level of sound possible, and hopefully do it with clean, full, amplified tones that are pleasing to users.

 

DeepCool did not set the bar very high, so Thermaltake doesn't have to do much to impress, but I really hope that the Massive SP is well worth the time and investment of testing it. Stick around and find out how we get along with the Massive SP, and see if Thermaltake can sway our decision to pass on these sorts of devices.
