Hiyatek is a Taiwanese manufacturer of computer peripherals that we first met in 2006 when they sent over a couple of their products for review. Their product line-up consists of items such as drive enclosures, multi-function panels, card readers, and USB hubs, but they seem most keen on promoting their laptop coolers.
The two previous reviews of Hiyatek products were of laptop coolers, and we have yet another one this time around. The HY-CF-6160-1 is shown in the promotional image above, and over the course of this review we will see just what it has to offer. Before taking a closer look at the sample provided for review, let's look at some published data taken from the product page on the Hiyatek website.

The images below show the outside of the box for the Hiyatek HY-CF-6160-1. It lists the main features and specifications, there are a few photos of the device, and on the back we see that the color choices are silver or black.
Inside the box we find the cooler protected inside a bubble wrap bag, braced with cardboard forms on either end. The only other item to be found (initially) is a brief user's guide.
