Excerpt: I like the design, size, weight, but the USB powered fan seem a little lack luster. Overall the included fan and the price are the two things holding back this product. The fan does not produce enough force to lift a kleenex off the cooling pad.
Cons: The fan is in one particular spot and does not cool down the processor. In fact, it doesn't even cool down the area it fans. I bet I could cool my laptop down better outside in a light spring breeze. That is not even a slight exaggeration.
Summary: I bought this in hopes of keeping my laptop cooler to prevent overheating. It worked amazing at first and I was absolutely thrilled. Within a month or so it stopped doing it's job. I definitely don't feel like I got my money's worth out of it before having to replace it.
Excerpt: I've had this lap chill map for about two weeks. It works fine. As soon as you plug in the USB connector, the two fans immediately run. The USB cord is long enough to reach either side of my 17 inch wide laptop. My only complaint is that the fans are a little noisy.
Excerpt: I have been using chill mat for a long time this is second from staples.In my experience it is not that effective for my Acer aspire S7 as it doesn't have but of ventilation opening below my ultra-book.
