This is the 45h cooling stand I've had for this machine, and already by far the best. The previous two had three important issues - first was that they were small - designed for 15" notebooks, so there was a lot of overhang on mine. Annoying, but not the end of the world. More important was the fact that the power cable plugged into the edge of the stand and could be detached. Since I use my laptop on my lap, that connection tended to get bumped around a lot, and eventually the connection became so loose that the fan would only work intermittently and required fiddling to get going. That's why I replaced both of those - loose connection, no fan, no cooling.
This stand is a huge improvement.
First of all, the power cord is molded onto the stand, so I can't jar it loose like I could on the other stands. Plus, it's halfway up the back of the stand, so it'll be much harder to bump around anyway. So I shouldn't have the same issue I'd had in the past.
Second, it's huge. It fits my 17" laptop perfectly. No overhang. Obviously, this is really only a stand for a big laptop. If you've got a 15", the stand will be bigger than your machine.
Third, the wedge shaped cooling gives it a huge amount of space to pull air in from the sides. Like I said, I use my laptop on my lap. Previous models pulled air in from underneath. But since it was sitting on my lap, there was minimal airflow available. Now, since this one pulls in air from the sides, it really cools things off fast.Read more ›
The positives are very positive. This device is really well-made and well-designed. It is the only laptop cooler I know of which is practical for "lap-desk" use (say, sitting on your lap in a chair, or on top of your comforter in bed, for example). This is because the air flow is from the sides, rather than the bottom. It's a great design from that standpoint.
The neoprene "wrapping" makes it very comfortable on bare legs, if you wish, and equally "sticky" on a tabletop surface, even a glass one.
The top surface is a perforated grill, so there's convective airflow even where there is no fan. The fans are located in the spot where, on most laptops, the CPU and GPU (the main heat-sources) tend to be. But if you have a laptop where the highest-heat sources are lower on your machine, you won't get the full benefit of this device. It will still help a lot, in any case... but the fans blow where the CPU and GPU ("brain chip" and graphics chip) are normally located... as it should do!
I've seen a couple of reviews talking about the "cheap cable" (UNTRUE... it's perfect acceptable unless you swing the thing around by the cord!) or the "stops" on the top surface coming off after a short period of use. Well, those reviewers must have just abused this device, and are now whining that it's not "invulnerable." Ignore them. The device's construction is more than adequate unless you're one of those children who throws your toys against the wall then whines about them being "bad toys" for breaking.
In general, this is a near-ideal design.Read more ›
Like others, I don't mind paying a little more for quality but at $35 this Targus Chill Mat AWE55US is an excellent value.
I purposely waited an extended period before writing my review. I'm now into my 8th month of very heavy use and it is still functioning the same way it did the day I received it. I use it with a heavy 17" laptop that generates a considerable amount of heat. It has exceeded my expectations as far as functionality and durability.
I can wholeheartedly recommend this cooling pad.
December 2012 Update:
Cooling pad has seen daily use, runs almost continuosly and to date it is still running perfectly.
UPDATE: April 2014
The Targus Chill Mat has finally started making the noise(bearing squeal) that signals it has reached the end of it's life. After many years of perfect function it will find its final resting place in the local landfill. As a result of my excellent experience I have replaced it with another Targus product, the triple fan HD3.
