You just don't want drinks and snacks on the bridge table that is already cluttered with bidding boxes and cards. These little tables keep the bridge table uncluttered and hopefully the red wind off of your carpet. Look around though the prices of the same item are all over the place. The trays came assembled but the stand needed to be assembled. All the parts were there and assembly was easy. A good value and good quality for the price purchased at Kmart for $39.99.

I still think this unit does a nice job cooling but I am grossly disappointed in Cooler Master’s customer service. Admittedly the unit does a good job but the original fans now groan like Eagle fans watching old Donovan McNabb throw a bullet to TO’s feet.
To me, a major selling feature of the unit was the “easily replaced” fans. They snap out and are readily available. Well they do snap out, they are NOT readily available and Cooler Master parts was the only place I could find them. The price is reasonable, $6.99 for a pair of fans but the shipping of $9.98 simply means that you are putting out $16.97 to replace the now very noisy fans.
What is frustrating is that you can go to Amazon, New Egg, Buy.com or E-Bay and replace the entire unit for as little as $5.00 including shipping. I found a Targus unit that was very similar for $6.99 and free shipping at Amazon. (free shipping with a $25 order) My beef is that I ship things, the shipping and handling should not be $10. Cooler Master obviously wants you to buy a new, complete unit rather than repair the old. Shame on you Cooler Master for contributing to the throw away society.
My solution is to buy the $5.00 dual fan set at Amazon and slide it under the very nice Cooler Master notebook stand that used to be a notebook cooler before the fans died. Stop back to see if the $5.00 including shipping fans work.

I bought the economy size version of roundup in their spray pump which actually works quite well. That's the pump it works quite well the round up not so much.
I purchased a product called Spectracide weed and grass killer. It seems grossly more effective than the roundup. I don't know why I was shocked but it was also substantially cheaper than roundup. Once again its proven that the higher price product isn't always the best product for job. In this case Spectracide actually does seem to kill the weeds and they are brown within 24 hours. So if you looking to save some money in killing weeds you may want to look for the product called spectracide I found it at Ace hardware.
