Decided to order this for my new laptop when I noticed it getting hot after gaming for awhile. I have a Dell Studio 17 so it was important that I get a mat which fits a 17" laptop, this seemed like the best choice. Slightly disappointed upon trying it to find that it's about an inch smaller than it should be, but not really a catastrophic issue.
The fans are pretty much silent, which is great. They're also located at the back of the pad, as you can see in the photo. There isn't a lot of cooling going on near the front part so if that area of your laptop is what commonly overheats, this isn't the one to go for.
That said, it isn't too expensive and aside from being a tad small, does an adequate job. I'll be on the lookout in future for something better but this will surely do for awhile.
