Sunbeam® Therapedic™ Microplush Heated Electric Blanket
Best electric blanket I've ever had.
I've had electric blankets all my life. I'm a senior now with medical problems and need the warmth more than ever. I'm replacing an electric blanket that quit being warm. What I love most about the blanket is its heating ability. It preheats very quickly (even without another blanket on top of it) and it gets so hot I have to turn it down when I get into bed. After I get warmed up, I usually turn it off or way down. This new blanket's larger size drew my attention to it because other elect. blankets have always been a little too narrow, ending up on my husband's side of the bed or mine. Now we both stay covered throughout the night. I don't particularly care for the longer length - only because it adds more weight pulling on my feet. I just pull it up further and fold the top edge down (without folding down the wired area). The blanket is not as soft as I thought it would be but it's soft enough. The wires are smaller than any I've had in the past. There were only 2 colors to choose from, white and mushroom. I chose the mushroom in a king size. The color is soothing and goes well with everything. This blanket is so efficient that I took the heated mattress pad off our bed. It's wonderful not sleeping on top of wires. We've only had this blanket for about a month but so far it outshines all others. I don't have a problem seeing the temperature reading as some stated in their reviews. I'm very pleased that I purchased this blanket sight unseen.

Not so good
I have not had the failure of the controler like others, but I hate making the bed with this blanket and I hate sleeping with it, It is TWO seperate micro fiber blankets. They are NOT connected, they each go thier seperate ways. It is like having a slippery blanket that refused to do what you want. I paid a lot of money for this and would take it back in a second had I not kept it on the bed hopeing I would get used to it.

Love it! I bought this for my father who is 81. It keeps him warm in the summer with it not on and I know he will enjoy it this winter.

My only regret is not buying this sooner
I am an extremely cold nature person and I wanted to find a product that would keep me warm at night. I tend to wear double socks, two layers of yoga pants, a shirt and a sweater when I go to bed, and I am still cold. This product is amazing, although it has up to level 10 I have not gone past 3. The better part is that at night I no longer have my space heater on at 74 (now 68) because this blanket keeps my body warm. I usually leave it on for a few hours and then turn it down or turn it off, the blanket does a great job at retaining heat. Plus it is so soft and cozy it makes me feel like I am being hugged to sleep.
My only regret I have is not buying this sooner, years sooner. Next year I will buy one as a xmas gift.

So far...I'm happy!
After reading a lot of mixed reviews on this product, I leaned toward the positive ones. I do like to read reviews prior to making a purchase but decided to buy this blanket because I know that BBB stands behind all of their products and, if I have an issue down the road, I know that I can either return or exchange it.
My heated mattress pad stopped heating after about five years of use so I chose a heated blanked this time. I bought one for myself and one for my mother. Although we've only had them for about a month, we're both pleased with the product. It warms quickly and actually, even at a low setting (3 or 4), I find it gets hot and I have to lower it or turn it off for a while. But, when I need warmth, it heats up quickly. A little difficult seeing the settings in the dark but not a big deal. There are a lot of settings available and I do like the Preheat feature to get your bed toasty quickly and then drop down to your desired temperature.
I have cats that like to sleep on the bed and, if you know cats, they love anything warm...so they prefer the heated blanket over the heated bed pad! I put a lightweight duvet cover over my blanket so that I can easily remove it and wash it often (because of the cats).
Comparing this blanket with others...both reviews and price...I think this is a good value and would recommend it.

Sunbean heating blanket
I have been through two of these blankets already. After a short period of time they just stop working, and when I mean a short period of time I mean a few months. I will never buy another one of these blankets. My second one now only works on high. The first one stopped working all together after only 3 months. I returned it to Bed Bath and Beyond and exchanged it for another blanket thinking I just got a bad blanket. The second blanket only worked for 2 months, it only works now on the high setting. I thought Sunbeam was suppose to be a good company.
