Excerpt: I had another chill mat that was thinner and sleeker. However, the fan would cut out often. This one is bigger so I just use it on the desk. The best features are the extra USB ports and the adjustability of the height. My laptop is getting older and tends to heat up more. This has done the job keeping it cool. I love the extra USB ports since I tend to multitask. My laptop has only 3 ports and one is always taken up by my mouse receiver.
Excerpt: I have been looking for a cooling mat foe a while to suit my needs. This is thin non-bulky very streamlined. Love the ports in the back which is a very welcomed addition to my limited number of ports on my laptop.
Excerpt: Really like the 4 port Hub on this. That is the deciding factor when purchasing. It is a little louder of a machine - not loud, but it is noticeable. When I set my machine to "sleep" mode, everything shuts down but the fan continues to run. it didn't do that on my other chill-pad. It is only when the machine is shut down that it turns off. it could be because of what I am doing or not doing, but I don't know how to change it. This has an adjustable slope to it.
Excerpt: Fans started making terrible racket only one month after purchase. Now it is not working at all. Did not really keep my laptop cool enough, still had problems with overheating. Hopefully they will make me a Happy customer at Targus and replace it.
