Summary: Really helped fight the overheating of my laptop from running certain programs. Unfortunately it broke after 6 months of (what I thought was) light usage. Don't waste your money—there are probably other products that perform just as well and don't break so quickly.
Summary: This works great for keeping my laptop cool, but only having 2 USB slots, and needed one for this fan, the 4 port hub was a great feature...problem is it doesn't stay connected....Windows 7 won't recognize it so it makes the other ports useless. Think I will return to the store and look for another solution.
Summary: Sure wish I'd know about the plug problem others have discussed. This worked fine for about 3 months. Then suddenly wouldn't work at all. I stupidly bought another model (fan built into a laptop carry case) and that also worked about 3 months. When I looked at getting another and asked the geek at the store where I bought it if they'd had any others reporting this problem.
Summary: I've had this product for 2 months or so, then the tip of the plug broke and fell out. I tried to find another plug on the net and in various stores in my area but there none. For the price, you'd think either the plug was made better, or at least have the availability for another USB plug. Not worth it for the price.
Summary: I purchased this few months back for my Dell Laptop. It was working fine for first few days. But every now and then it would stop working and on checking i found that the USB power pin which connects to the mat got kinda loose. Need to press very tightly to resume connection. But ultimately after a month the pin just broke and got stuck to the jack!!. hard to find replacement.This is a substandard product and I would not recommend this to anyone. Its not worth the price.
Summary: I've had this for a few months and it was really good for a while. Then it cracked and then the plug broke, and it wouldn't work as the tip of the plug fell out. Tried to find another plug, but there weren't any around. For the price, you'd think either the plug would be made better, or you'd be able to get a replacement somewhere. Not worth it for the price.
Cons: case too thin and cracks , plug broke and can't get a replacement
Summary: I've had this for a month or so..it was really good for a while, then the plug broke, and it wouldn't work as the tip of the plug fell out. Tried to find another plug, and there wasn't any around where I live. For the price, you'd think either the plug was made better, or have a usb port that you get another one somewhere. Not worth it for the price.
Summary: I purchased this product about a year ago, and I have been glad that I did. I have a Macbook Pro that typically would overheat, but since I bought the "Chill Mat" it maintained a reasonable temperature. There have been the occasional noise that it would make, but typically this is because I would have the mat on my lap in bed and a portion of the blanket would slip inside the holes and hit the fan. I'm very happy with it, and I would recommend it to others.
Pros: sleek stylish matches macbook pros has two fans
