Packaging



Total length of the XJOG is 45.5 cm - long enough for all applications I can think of. Since many of you don't know how to handle cm's I included a CD in the picture so you can get a feeling for the XJOGs size.



The switch at the end of the XJOG has three positions:
  • Off
  • LED on, Fan off
  • LED on, Fan on

Performance



The shaft is very flexible but it seems possible that it might break under heavy abuse.



Light output is very good - not too dark, not too bright. The length of the XJOG is enough for my notebooks 15.1" display so it should fit most notebooks.

Value and Conclusion

  • The XJOG is selling for about $10 which is an excellent price.
  • Nice looking, Soft fan blades, Available in two colors.
  • Easy to install.
  • No external power supply needed.
  • A bit hard to justify the expense.
