I was very pleasantly surprised when i received my blanket in a timely manor, the color and fabric as it looked and was stated when purchasing. I have yet to use it, purchased it for our travling home but I do so much appreciate how it matches other things on our bed, holds it shape and fits to the right size of mattress.
thank you so much

The Sunbeam Royal Nights Heated (electric) Blanket keeps one snug and warm on the coldest of nights - one of the best electric blankets on that score that I have ever used. So why didn't I give it five stars? Two reasons:
1) In pursuit of energy star ratings, Sunbeam has configured the controls such that one must manually turn the blanket on each night and the blanket only will stay 'on' for ten hours. But I had already programmed my blanket (via X-10 Home Automation) to turn on at a set time of the evening, only in the cooler months of the year, and then turn off the next morning. The so-called energy saving feature backfires for me. Minus one and one half stars.
2) The blanket's fabric looks cheesy. I have inexpensive fleece throws that look better. I wish I had the option to purchase a blanket with a higher quality fabric. Down another star.
Would I buy it again? Yes, but still with the above reservations.-
