Rated 4 out of 5 by Griffschair Chill it does!
Bought this for my daughters 17" laptop. Fits on very nice and it doesn't need to be plugged into the USB to keep her laptop cool. The vents and taking it off a flat surface is good enough. For hotter laptops this would be great - 2 fans that deliver a reasonable 'breeze' and are silent in operation. Can be used anywhere - as students do! On the bed, a table or even on the lap - very comfortable and lifts the laptop to a better position for typing. Bought this from ASDA as it was the cheapest price I could find (£5 less than Amazon at the time) and it was delivered for collection at my local store the next day! 'Fan'tastic!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JP83 Targus AWE55EU Laptop Chill Mat
This product is ideal laptop form 15 to 17" And I bout this for my Sony Vaio 16.4 well fit in the pad. The fan noise is difficult to notice and provide a moderate air flow. I intended to use this for gaming and for keeping the system on my lap for regular browsing. However It is not highly recommended for a gaming laptop since the airflow is moderate they might need a better air circulation and cooling for the laptop,
The negative is Packing, Asda's package is horrible because its wraped with a black polythene cover and no protection to the product , So there is a possibility to that your product might comes with any damage

I bought the Targus chill mat after speaking to a IT specialist in work about laptops over heating! Using a laptop in bed etc can quickly cause the laptop to overheat and this can lead to hefty bills to fix the laptop and possibly lost data! I looked at a number of cooling mats and decided to buy the Targus chill mat due to it's clever design and dual fan setup! The mat is extremely soft and comfortable to place on your lap for long periods. It keeps the laptop cool and is very quiet running off a USB slot. Excellent value for money for a quality product, would definitely recommend!

I was skeptical about these devices - so many look clumsy and are expensive. I work form home and use my laptop all day 5 days a week. after nearly 3 years my Acer 17" screen started to shot down as it got too hot when I was in a shared screen meeting - very embarrassing! Well the Targus chill pad is much quieter than the computer fan and I only plug it in when needed- the design gives a lot of ventilation without the fan. It is sturdy and neat. I expect the first thing to go will be the cable - because that is always the weakest point - but it looks fine at the moment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Review4You Targus met its Target!
Excellent laptop mat - bought since my laptop kept overheating, thought this would do the trick, plus it was considerably cheaper than anywhere else online! Surprisingly comfortable to have on your knee, even for a long time. The aired area covers quite a big part of the mat, so it doesn't matter what laptop you have - most laptop mats have a fan only in the middle which doesn't help when the battery is at the back! Not loud either, and is USB powered so no need for batteries! All in all a great product and a fantastic price - would definitely recommend!

The laptop cooling pad definitely works, beforehand my son's laptop was shutting down constantly due to overheating when playing Minecraft, and since using the pad it never overheats! It sits on his knee comfortably and he is a fusspot so it must be comfy, it can also be used on the table. The fan is quiet enough, the only issue I can see, but you may be able to configure it do so, is that it does not switch off automatically when the laptop is in hibernation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by marba01 Quiet, comfortable and dual purpose
The chillmat works equally well on a table as on the lap. It has a nice slope, I should point out that this is is non adjustable. However I don't mind this and as a result it is very stable. This is an added bonus when you are typing and using the mouse as you are working off a stable base.
It sits quite comfortably on the lap and I can use it for a long period without any problem.
It is a good size for my 15.4 inch laptop with just a small overlap on each side.
This model has dual fans so the cooling area is quite large, the fans are quiet.
The previous model I had, used to blast out air either side, much to my wife's annoyance unless she too was overheating! No such 'feature' with this one so I have not received any complaints from that direction.
All in all, I am pleased with my purchase, and consider it good value for money.

I chose this item after comparing various other makes and found this to be the best; I now have two, one at home and one in the office.
This is comfortable and easy to use, either on a desk or sat on your lap, it is a little noisier than a laptop but nothing significant. Two fans inside it suck heat from the laptop, rubber feet are sufficient to keep the laptop in place.
The best price i found was from Asda Direct!
