      Duel Fan Could Of Been Better

      As a Graphic Designer I bought my Laptop in 2012 at Best Buy which was a Samsung Qosmio with a 17.3in screen and when I ordered it I had a few programs added that would aid in my work but I have to say my laptop has ALOT of power. Along with that power it gets VERY hot after awhile which causes it to run slow, so I finally went to Best Buy last week to get a duel fan cooling system. I ALWAYS checkout the ratings and read everyone's opinion on what I'm buying before I buy it at Best Buy. Don't get me wrong I love Best Buy it's my 2nd home and I would go there before going somewhere else to get what I need, but because I didn't do my homework on this Targus - Dual Fan Lap Chill Mat Cooling System, I went ahead and bought it in store anyways. Unfortunately it was the only one they had so I had to get it instead of going home empty handed and not being able to cool my laptop so I could finish my work. Once I got it home, plugged it into my laptop I have to say, before I realized that it wasn't working correctly, I thought to myself "this is a VERY quiet Chill Mat and I can just leave it plugged in to my laptop and it'll shut of when I shut my laptop off"!. I kept this Targus fan mat for about 4 days to see how good it performed and honestly with the one I had (Because I know not everyone is or runs the same even though they should) even though it ran very quietly, the air that the fans were supposed to produce to make the laptop cool down, I have to say that I was not impressed, AT ALL!!! From a scale from 1-5 on air distribution, I give it a 1. The fans hardly produced any air to cool down the laptop. With having a 17.3 screen that makes the whole laptop really big, the size of the fan mat didn't fit the whole underside of the laptop making it hard for the fans to blow air to the side of my laptop since the fan that is blowing hot air is on the right side and the duel fans on the mat are in the middle so if it was actually working and blowing air like it should of been doing, it would still not be able to cool the fan on the laptop unless I moved the right side of the laptop over to the left over the right side fan on the mat. So as far as the size of the fan mat, it will only cover the bottom of a 15in screen laptop even though the cover that is wrapped around the fan mat when you first buy it says that it works even with a 17.3in screen laptop. Me personally I don't find that to be the case. So on a scale from 1-5 on size, I give it a 2.. I've NEVER given anything that I have bought at Best Buy a rating of a one or two star until now and honestly I feel bad for doing so. Going back to when I said I know that not every Targus - Dual Fan Lap Chill Mat Cooling System are the same and may run differently than the one I bought and maybe I just got ahold of a bad one that didn't produce the air that I thought it should have, if that's the case then I'm sure that this Targus would work perfectly for a smaller laptop like a 15in or smaller, just not a 17.3in. like It said it would. Then again not everyone has my laptop and they don't have a laptop that has the fan that blows the hot air on the right side. If they have a 17in laptop that has the fans underneath instead of on the sides then I'm sure that this cooling mat would be just fine! I'm just not familiar with all these new laptops that are coming out now and how they are made. So I'm just giving my experience that I had with the Targus and how it worked on my laptop which Samsung stopped making awhile back ago. So this maybe just an isolated incident with my laptop because of the way it was built and may not affect these newer ones that are out now like it did mine but the fact that it didn't produce the air that it was supposed to makes me wonder if I just got a bad one or their just all like that. You all can be the judge and decide for yourselves.. I just know that there are cooling system mats on the Best Buy website that have more than 2 fans and would work a lot better at cooling down a laptop whether it be old or new...This is just one mans opinion!

      Given that my laptop is now 4 years old, modern software applications (Particularly modern video games) are very taxing on the CPU and cause it to overheat in virtually no time whatsoever. I had lost my old laptop cooling pad about a year ago and at the time didn't see the point in buying a new one. When I finally decided that I had had enough of constant shut downs due to an overheated CPU (the internal fans were running, but just couldn't keep the unit cool at full strength), I decided to look for a replacement unit. Everywhere else I'd looked didn't have cooling pads for a 17.3" laptop, or were just too expensive, especially considering that Office 2013 (which I require for college courses per the college rules) is also taxing for simply writing Word documents for various courses. Once I hooked this new unit up, the laptop managed to stay cool for Office and Gaming products, so I get to hold off buying a replacement laptop for another day. All in all, a worthwhile and great product in my opinion.

      Its been 7 months of owning the chill pad for my laptop. It is ok. Not great, I guess that I was expecting more. The last one that I still have I had bought for a bigger laptop (17"), it has dual fans with speed control USB connection. I would have bought something like it again if they had it for my 14" laptop. Pros - The fan is quite. almost don't hear it. It has a compartment to stow the USB cord. It provides a surface to insulate the computer from my body heat. Cons - The fan doesn't seem to do much. Can barely feel it. No place to channel the cord when plugged into the computer. The pad is big for a 14" laptop. Wish that there was something more designed for smaller laptops.

      My first impression was the quality of the product, how nice it felt, how durable it looked and felt , when I tried another 17 inch notebook in store on it, it fit nicely , when I tried a ultra wide notebook (17inch), it was a little small, but still fit and held the notebook. leg's of notebook were hanging off slightly and obviously the sides of notebook were hanging off. It worked great, was nice, I love the hideaway USB, its quiet when you use fans, ( I only used once to test), its dissipating heat nicely , I highly recommend this.!!! great company, I have purchased several cooling pads over the years by this company and I highly recommend them, a cooling pad is a MUST this day and age with any notebook. They aren't laptops, they don't belong directly on your lap, with this cooling pad, its perfect, safe and sturdy

      Works, but not great

      I bought this because it was on sale for $9.99, and I'm really glad I didn't pay any more for it. The fans are quiet enough, but they barely move enough air to feel it. Specs say this works with laptops up to 17 inches, but my 15-inch laptop overhangs each side by about an inch. Which would be OK if I was using it on a desk, but it's awkward moving it from my lap to my bag and back. The cord is almost too short to reach the USB port on the side of my laptop, and it wouldn't reach without putting strain on it on a laptop any larger than 15 inches. The door where the cord is stored has a slot that looks like you should push the cord into it when in use, but when I tried to do so it scuffed the insulation. In all, this is OK, but certainly not worth the asking price.

      Only marginally helps cool the laptop

      I first got the Cooler Master X Slim and it was fantastic and a cheap price! My legs were actually cold using it. But then it broke within 3 weeks. Its main problem is the casing isn't rigid enough to handle grabbing both the laptop and the cooler. Also the power cord can get tangled in the fan when squeezed. So then I got the Targus for twice the price. It sends probably 25% of the airflow compared to the Cooler Master, so my laptop is still fairly warm, but at least it's off my legs. The rigidity and constructtion is great, but the point is -- did it cool the laptop? The answer is: not that much (compared to something else). I'd say keep looking.

      Comfortable but fans are not good and stumbly

      My 15.6 laptop sits great on it. It only has two positions, yet they are generic and comfortable enough for lap and desktop usage. When the fans are spinning as they should, the unit is relatively silent, but regretfully, at least my unit, 60% of the time, fans just start doing a cracking noise like if they were unbalanced... the cracking goes on / off, so clearly there must be something not tightening them right inside. Although when it works correctly is good and does make air flow underneath the laptop, I would recommend ordering other laptop cooling pad online instead of rushing to the store to buy this one.

      Cooling your laptop and comfort on your lap

      This product is excellent in keeping your laptop cool. The rubber grips helps keep your laptop from sliding off. The fan noise is mostly silent. Very comfortable when putting it on your lap that you never feel the heat from the laptop. Only minor complaint is that the cooling mat doesn't have extra USB ports built in to plug in your other devices when using it. So if your laptop doesn't have many USB ports, you may need to unplug one slot for the chill mat.
