Great comfortable blanket. Color is beautiful and it is fuzzy which I like. You can still feel the wires but that is the nature of the electric blankets. There are 20 units for heat setting and it can get real low and 20 is too hot for comfort so it will suit all levels of desired warmth. I tested it out in my mom's home over Christmas holiday and temps outside went down as low as 19 degrees F. House was cold and to save energy - during day - 3 of us sat under the blanket all day working on our laptops and ipads. At night - my mom used it without help of any other blankets and she felt very comfortable. We have a cat and he loved it. I googled info for safety for cats and apparently - it is nearly impossible to electrocute the cat even if they "knead" the blanket. Would buy again and would recommend to friends/family.

My only complaint is that the description and picture mentioned NOTHING about dual zones and two controls. I specifically purchased this because I don't want two zones - I sleep alone in my queen sized bed and I usually sprawl diagonally. I have no need for dual zones. So I was disappointed when I saw the second remote in there. And I also don't like the controls. Not because there's anything wrong with them, but simply because with my setup, I hang them through slats on the headboard. With the other sunbeam controllers, with the dial and numbers on the "top" surface, those end up right where I need them and can read them when on the headboard. These have the number pointing straight down then.

Other than that, it works great. The preheat function doesn't really seem too necessary to me, but unlike some out there, it's an OPTIONAL setting on this unit. You can turn it on, adjust the temp where you want it, and leave it go at that. Or you can do that, then hit the preheat to speed it up apparently, but I didn't notice much of a speed up, and when I tried it while laying in the bed, I didn't get melted like some reviewers complained about on some models with preheat.

It's a very soft blanket, very comfortable. You *can* feel the wires in there when you're looking for them, but you don't feel anything from them when you're just laying in bed with this on top of you, and a comforter on top of that.

Heat up time is good and there's no dead spots or anything. I've been running with it on 7 or so. Auto shutoff works well. And unlike some units I've seen recently, there's no hum or buzzing at all... (One problem I had with the heated mattress pad this is replacing).

I bought this last year around the holidays and loved it. I have severe arthritis and the warmth of getting into bed helped me fall asleep so fast..and stay asleep. Because of the reduced pain, I used it all year..just turned the air conditioner down at night in the summer. Eventually it became less and less warm and now it almost nonexistant. The bed never feels warm when getting in. Yet, during the night, it still does have minimal heat but barely. Just very disappointed and really expected it to last at least a few years. My mother is still using her Sunbeam electric blanket from 20 years ago. Sad how products just aren't what they used to be. Hats off to those marketing fellows...guess thats the point..create a product and make sure it only lasts a little while so they will have to buy a new one!

This blanket is really warm, however, it is hotter in some places than others. The foot area is not as warm as the rest of the blanket. It's way too stretchy, making it a lot of work to get it in place when making the bed. It also pulls very easily. I wouldn't buy a blanket made of this material again.

This blanket replaces a 10+ year old Sunbeam blanket that has served us well. The pre-heat feature works quite well and the bed is nice and toasty after a very short time. The only real complaint I have is that, even at the lowest setting, the heat output is a bit too much. Perhaps this is somewhat aggravated by the comforter we have on top of the blanket. Other things to note -- The old blanket had a type of control that could be hung on the bed rails, out of the way. These controls are table top mount with no provision for hanging. The instruction book that came with it covers a whole family of different Sunbeam models and takes some studying to figure out what features this blanket has and how to operate / program the controls. Overall, a nice soft blanket that puts out some serious heat for those chilly nights. One mystery -- why does the price vary significantly depending on the color you choose?

This blanket was for my mother as a christmas gift. She has fibromyalgia so for her staying warm helps keep her from hurting. I have a king size bed and bought this item at a very large store, the price was great, so i went to get her one from the same place. Sadly they were only selling King/Queen- and she has a full size bed. So i got on here and found the same one, same material same manufacture and bought it. My mom tells me almost everyday how much she loves this blanket and how much it helps with her pain. The price was great, shipped fast, i had no problems at all and would recommend this to anyone.

This blanket is really, really soft. It heats quickly. I like to warm the bed before I go to bed. It does a great job.

This blanket was great until it stopped working after only owning it for 7 months. The heating unit just flashes "F" on the display and will not work.

Very soft blanket but could be a lot thicker. Its really thin fabric but it does work well. They don't make things the way they used to.

I had my other Sunbeam electric blanket since 1982 and it finally quit working. I replaced it with this blanket. While it does a good job heating, there seems to be only one setting. It CAN be set to low, but the bed gets just as hot as if it were set on high. The blanket is lightweight and flimsy. Fabric is soft, but snags easily. I want my old Sunbeam blanket back.
