Excerpt: I have used numerous lap mats over the years and the he Chill Mat works very well, keeping your legs cool and ventelating the botton of your lap top.The fan pwer UBS cable may be conviently changed from side to side, by removing the cord and plugging it in on the oposit side of the unit..
Excerpt: I spend a lot of time using my computer on my lap. PC Generates a lot of heat and this chill mat was a good. It replaces a similar product by a different make that also operated well. The dual fans dissipate the heat efficiently and the cushioned bottom feels comfortable on my lap. Overall, I am very satisfied with this purchase.
Excerpt: Use on my lap under my laptop. It's comfortable and quiet. Very easy to use. Just plug in. When using, it sometimes gets in the way of using my keyboard, but that's more a problem with the position of the usb ports on my laptop.
Excerpt: It does the job, especially when you want to use your laptop on your lap or while laying in the bed. It keeps my Macbook separated from the surface and helps ventilation. I didn't give it 5 stars because of the fan. It's not that strong, and doesn't really cool down the bottom of the macbook. I wish it was stronger, at the cost of sacrificing one usb port.
Excerpt: I was hesitant purchasing this online. I have never looked a product like this in person. I went by the reviews posted by staples customers and made my decision. I got it and I was very pleased. I really wanted to have a cooling mat that would fit my 17" acer laptop. My laptop is big already and I was worried to add more bulk to my laptop. I opened it and set it up and was surprised how well it fit and added a great curve for typing etc.
Summary: My last Toshiba cooling mat had the USB connection on the back and developed a short. The USB power connection on this mat comes out from the side of the mat rather than the back, making an electrical short less likely. Quite nice product.
Excerpt: The product is light and just wide enough to hold the laptop but not so wide as to hit the arms of a chair or console of our loveseat. The neoprene surface keeps the laptop firmly in place. The fan is extremely quiet and greatly dissipates heat.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Good Value, Adequate Length, compact, light weight
Excerpt: I used to work from home alot using my laptop and it would get pretty warm after an 8 hour day. The reason why I bought it now though is my laptop fan blew out and this is saving me from replacing my 1 year old laptop and this tray allows me to use it more than 15 minutes at a time. This is so worth the price. I wish I would of bought this so much sooner.
