Excerpt: The fan intake is at the bottom of my laptop and would collect an abundant amount of dust, hence overheating the system. Targus has a great reputation for manufacturing a quality product. I purchased my first Targus cooling mat more than 5 years ago and others for family members' laptops as well. They all work excellently. The reason for this recent purchase is the cooling mat fan motors started to make a bearing noise.
Excerpt: This is the second "Targus Chill Mat" I'vre purchased for use in my home office. Both perfornm quite well, and exactly as advertized with no problems.Simply plug into AC power and you're ready to go.
Excerpt: I love this Lap Chill Mat, it keeps my computer from over heating, and when my grandson gets on my computer, I`m always worried he might burn his hand when he is playing on here, so now with having this lap chill mat, he can put the computer on his lap and not worry about this burning his legs. He is on my computer too long and does over heat. I also don't have to hang my computer over the side, so it can cool down like my daughter has to do on her computer.
Excerpt: My laptop had a message in regards to the fan I took it in to staples, they did an awesome job an recommend this fan to avoid the is problem from happening again. Since I purchase this product my computer is working excellent. Thank you for this recommendation.
Summary: I've purchased this chill mat before and since then they've moved the usb cord to the inside for better protection and it has a place to keep it from dangling. It's not silent, but worth the slight noise.
Excerpt: I think this is my 4th attempt at getting a chill mat to try and cool down a laptop computer. This one is big enough and strong enough that it really works to keep my laptop cool. It's a Toshiba Satellite P775 17-inch with Win 7 and between 1-2 years old. It's starting to heat up where it initially ran really cool. With this mat it's comfortable again. TYTYTY.
Summary: After considering many other laptop pad/coolers, of different brands, I checked out the different Targus models. I found this one to be the best value for the price, and now that I have used it, I find it is very comfortable on my legs, and of solid construction. It works very well to aid in laptop cooling. I would definatly recomend this to anyone needing one.
