Noise: If you're the kind of person who works in a dead quiet room, then the noise emmited from the fans is noticeable. But then again so is the noise of the wind outside. If you have music on, or are working infront of a tv, or even in an office, you won't hear them at all. The fans are about half as loud as my laptop fans when my laptop heats up. So in reality having them on can actually cuts the fan noise by 50%.
That being said, if you really can't stand fan noise you can just not have the fans on. Given that the air circulates well under the laptop, that your machine is raised slightly by rubber pads and that there are more ventilation holes in the product than on a cheese grater, the laptop is well ventilated just by sitting on the chill mat.
Cooling: Partly already covered in the noise bit, but definately has an effect. The two fans are excellent, blowing a good flow of room temperature air onto the laptop. I use a program called "speed fan" which effectively lets you control fan speeds in your laptop, but more importantly tells you what temperature various parts of your laptop are. When gaming, both my processor cores and graphics card got insanely hot, to the point where the air coming out of the fan vent could scold the skin if left too long. With the fans on, the temperature drops anywhere between 6-8C (by about 10%).
In regular use, my core temperatures drop by well over 10C, by about 20%.
All in all, its a solid product, it's a good buy.Read more ›
However after around 4-6 months the USB cable that connects the pad to the laptop splits at the point where it comes out of the pad.
This is not isolated. This is my second Tagus chill mat and the previous failed in the exact same way.
Not designed to last.
Because my laptop is 17.4 and not 17, it slightly protrudes to the left and right sides,but it is still comfortable to carry around while still on the stand.
I've never had a reason to turn on the 2 fans, because I did not buy the stand for an overheating laptop,but for one that does not like soft surfaces as its intake fan is on the bottom. But if you decide to turn them on, its as easy as plugging an USB cable and the noise is not loud. Also the fans blow the air up, meaning they provide the laptop with fresh cool air, rather than sucking out the hot air and torturing the bottom placed laptop fans.
I also like the soft neoprene bottom of the mat and it feels very comfortable when you place it on your lap.
The top is covered in holes plastic with 4 rubber "feet" , stopping the laptop from sliding. The top flexes a little when you press it, but the mat seems resistant to damage from that. Also this way it takes less space in your baggage when you travel with it ;-)
Overall, this is an awesome mat with a soft comfy bottom covering and two up-blowing fans for the folks with overheating laptops.
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.
-delivery was quick, and the package was good ,instruction mannual included.
-this size is perfect for my 17"acer,but wont look bulky even with 15"or 13" as its sleek,any brand laptop will fit on it cus the 4 raised rubber tips on the corners of the matt are re-adjustable anywhere on the whole matt
-light wieght n comfertable on ur laps or on bed, table etc
-two fans assist for cooling and the noise is not more than my laptop used to make when it got realy hot on my laps or on bed.
-two fans seems to be in the right place as they are cooling my laptop very good so far.
-fans are usb powered no swich jus plug n play ,, still good enough , even works good without fans on, as theres good ventilation space,
-the positioning is not adjustable but its perfect,, no problem when typing for long time on lap,
hope it helps
