Excerpt: I have a large laptop that always runs hot. This product seems to do a decent job of dissipating the heat and protecting my work surface. With the placement of the fans, it looks like it really designed to work on a solid surface (as opposed to sitting on your lap).
Summary: The mat itself feels great on my lap, but that's about the only thing good about it. It didn't turn on at all right out of the box, so I am unable to comment on anything other than my frustration that it didn't work at all.
Summary: My experience with this product was so bad i had to write review. I will say I did read other reviews and ignored the warnings.I have been using Antec laptop fans for years unfortunately after my original broke the replacements only lasted a year.
Summary: I brought this for my laptop per dell because a few months after purchasing my laptop began to have problems overheating. I went to my local Staples and at their recommendation as well as dell I was urged to buy a cooling pad.
