Don't pay more than $12 for this one
Pros: The LED light is nice to provide some soft back light in fairly dim to dark light. Be aware it is not intended to light the keyboard, but if your vision is not flawless, you know how lighting can be tricky. Its a nice design for a table or desk, or on your lap, although not intended for your lap it is tolerable if you use it this way. The additional USB port is very helpful as this pad was purchased for my MAC which only has 2 USB ports total, & I use 1 for my wireless mouse already. Dual fans run well & the aluminum mesh that the computer helps to disperse heat with the fans, as it sits directly on the frame of the pad; the pads which are entirely plastic, seem to retain heat more than this one. Very sturdy & durable, should last a while.
Cons: The 2 biggest cons are the USB port does not seem to be structurally sound & rather flimsy, as if regardless what USB cable you insert, it is ill fitted & loose. Then the USB cable provided itself is not of good quality & already shows signs of wear to the point that it cannot always power the pad, evident by the LED lights are very dim, & the fan's spin very slowly until the cable is adjusted. For this reason I do not recommend plugging in any device which may be damaged but an improper disconnection, ie. Hard drive or flash drive.
Other Thoughts: Strange how an otherwise solid unit falls short over a cable & USB Port. If you can swap out the USB port, which is fairly easy, & replace the cable, as I have done, your going to have a very decent unit. For the sale price, it was fair, but if you dont want to put the effort into it, or dont know how, buy another cooling pad.

Pros: It seems to work. Hopefully it will keep my laptop cool.
Cons: The supplied USB cable is ridiculously short. A bit bit noisy for an audio guy.
