Very Good, could be little bit better..
on 22 April 2013
Very solid build, two USB ports at the back, so you don't lose a USB, large enough for 17.3" laptop easily, very very quiet.. in fact I've never heard it, as my laptop's fan is always on high due to my config, even with laptop in S3 sleep state, I can barely hear it,
the top plate that the laptop rests on is made of metal mesh, so that helps with cooling, but.. for me the fan could be a bit more powerful, but it is on par with the Targus Lap Chill Mat 17-inch in terms of power, and I think when I ran tests with Speedfan, a mini soak test sort of thing, with CPU at 100% for 5mins, running virus scans, HD films, Etc., it did help keep things cooler by 1 - 2.5C on average.
It also has a power level adjust at the back, though I don't really see the point as it is so quiet even on max. The Targus on the other hand was quite noisy!
Perfect if you ever want to use your laptop on the floor carpet, duvet, etc. It is high enough that you need not worry leaving the laptop unattended on the bed for a few hours, not that that is recommended at all, is still a bit of a fire hazard!
