The quality of this thing is a joke. I turned it on, fine. Turn it off, and the wheel clicked and just spins endlessly now. Haven't had it out of the box and plugged into the computer for more than five minuets.

You will love this cooling bad as much as me

I bought this when I purchased my laptop .. It's a great product it's really cool & keeps the computer really cool as well . I love it so much I purchased a second one for my daughter !!

A bit pricey but worth it.

I've had this cooling pad for a few years and it's worked pretty well and without any issues..., Certainly does it's job! The switch for adjusting the speed of the fans can be a bit tricky to move at first, you shouldn't be too rough with it since it's only plastic. I can see how it has ended up broken for other people, you just have to watch that you don't push in on the wheel when you're trying to move it. My laptop is mostly stationary, i keep it on a desk and the flat design of the pad is perfect for that situation, I never liked the way a lot of the other pads had an incline to them because i found it uncomfortable to type with my hands all crunched up.

Functional But Over-priced and Flimsy

I bought this on a whim. The price is a lot higher than other online sources and the build quality is very flimsy. So far, it is running ok but it is a lot louder than other similar products I have used. Ifi bought again, I would pay half the price or consider a different brand with better build.

Works great but breaks after 6 months

I've had 3 of these so far, they have all broken after 6-8 months of use. The first I lost the receipt and so couldn't use the warranty, I thought maybe I had just got a dud because when it works it works really well. The second I was careful to keep the receipt and again after the same 6-8 months it broke, I returned it and they sent me another one no problem but again same problem. It seems to be a really crappy connection of the wire that runs to the USB connection at the back of the unit. Once it breaks there is no way to open up the case to get at it even if you wanted to fix it yourself.

not worth the money

This fan works great at keeping my laptop cool even during intense gaming sessions. however, the fans tend to rattle which can be quite noisy and after about 8 months the fan blades have started breaking off. ive lost 5 blades from 2 of the fans for seemingly no reason. for the price of this cooling pad, you can find much higher quality.

Works for Awhile

I'd had this heating pad for about three months when the first side of the fan died. Then the second fan died and now the third fan is biting the dust. It's damn annoying to have to have the laptop half on my lap, half on the cooling pad to try to keep the thing from overheating constantly. In the end, it worked okay for what it did, but the quality could definitely be better.

Worth the Price

I had this model for about one year and a half and it performed perfectly. If you have a gaming laptop, this is the best choice simply because it is very powerful. Specs are very important.

Love It!

Picked this up for my new laptop and, after using it for a week, I ordered a second one as a back up. I do like it that much and wanted to be sure I would get the same one down the road; when this one goes to the great burn-out place, where all chillmats eventually go.This gaming computer needs to have a chillmat. To run one without the mat would be foolish. So why not get a backup one to ensure my laptop can play those games for a long time, trouble free!

All fun and games until it's broken...

Bought this as an upgrade to a lesser Targus cooling mat. Worked great for several months, then one random day the speed adjuster broke and now it's stuck on one single speed (low) which doesn't help my laptop stay cool enough for certain tasks. I wouldn't purchase this again or recommend it to anyone who is looking quality and value. Overall I'm very unimpressed with Targus' product quality and value it offers.

Bought this product about 3 months ago. After moderate use the variable speed dial has broke and the fan is stuck on one speed with no way of turning it off without unplugging the power. Overall for the price this product is seemingly no more reliable than some of the less expensive cooling mats.

This laptop cooler bring effective cooling. Although I do not find it very quiet, it is much quieter then my last. It is an agressive cooler meaning it blows against the bottom of your laptop. The adjustable fan speed is very nice letting you slow it down for quieter operation when you don't need the extra air flow. Very good at doing the job but isn't as quite as others available.

Cools really well

It is fantastic for my laptop. I always play games on my laptop and it tends to heat up up to about 78 degrees celsius, then it shuts down. With this cooling pad, it reduced the internal temperature to 60 degrees! (which is pretty cool if your are playing mainstream games). It does require 2 usb ports to work at max power, but it can be solved with a usb hub. Though the con about it is that the dial to change the fan speed is very hard to turn as you approach the highest setting; though if you are looking for a durable cooling pad, this is it.
