This is a nice unit, metal deck that truly holds a 17" laptop without any of it hanging over the edge. Stable, lightweight, yet durable and functional. Three fans are extremely quiet and can be position anywhere on the grid you desire to fit your cooling needs. Single USB plugs into one of your laptops existing USB ports and then you can plug something else in to the cooling pads USB.. sort of like when you string xmas lights together. Not sure the USB ports are meant to run the three fans and something else so that is a little bit of a disappointment, but better then having to source a power outlet in order to keep cool. It seems to struggle a little bit keeping my laptop cold if I stream tranining videos for too much of the day and but has not problems with all other all day active use. I would buy another and would recommend to friends and coworkers. It is a very good unit. Excellent for me would be hard to get given I dont want to sacrafice a USB or share one and dont want to have to find an outlet, nor do I want noisy fans running. So my very good, might just be your excellent.
