Pros: Comfortable on your lap. The simplicity of the design makes it easy to use. It's just a wedge with fans and padding. It also has two fans, which is not usually the case.
Cons: It's prone to breaking on the edges of the upper surface. I have had two of these. They have both broken in the same place. The reason for this that I use my laptop in my chair. This means that I need to pick it up and move it a lot. The only way to safely do that is to hold the Chill Mat by edges of the upper surface and grip the laptop with your thumbs. There's not a lot of pressure involved, but over time the minute flexing that occurs causes the plastic to crack.
