I got this blanket a year ago and absolutely loved it. Since I have a health condition which causes me to freeze easily, I am always on the hunt for products that will keep me warm, so this blanket was a wonderful find, heated very well and was so plush. However, it didn't even last me through the winter (got it in November, it died in February). It stopped heating as it should and is now only useful as a ordinary blanket. For the money this blanket costs it should at least last through one winter. So disappointed.

Best electric blanket I've ever purchased. Warms up very fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by grand4 The blanket is soft and fits my queen size bed.
It is what I wanted for the winter months. It is soft and the color is good.

This blanket reminds me of bear hide: very heavy and hot. The control cords are not long enough and are constantly being pulled off our bed's side tables. Set up instructions were a bit confusing. On the plus side, the temp variations seem to be very good and quiet (no clicking from the controls as the temp fluctuates).

Rated 5 out of 5 by CFLUTES Coziest electric blanket ever
MUCH thicker and plusher than I expected. Unfortunately I've had to wash this blanket 3 times already in the last month (dog) and it's holding up extremely well. I was able to take an extra blanket off the bed as this is almost double the thickness of any other blanket I've got. It's so thick and plush. Easy to use, pre-heat is awesome, though I end up using the lowest setting. The wires are nearly impossible to notice. GREAT size, quite generous in the size. I bought another brand at the same time to compare, and sent the other one back. This is the best electric blanket i've ever owned and I've used them all of my life....on ALL of my beds.

Our previous Sunbeam electric blanket was 10 years old, wearing out, and reaching the point of possible electrical safety issues. So we were happy to find this version had excellent ratings, and bought the chocolate-brown version. The wires are less obvious than in any electric blanket I've known, the fabric is very attractive and extremely soft & comfortable. The controls work well and are easy to figure out--and the blanket itself is so warm I don't often need to turn on the electricity. When I do, level 4 is quite warm! We got an excellent value on this blanket due to a combination of sale and coupon, but even for additional money it would have been a good deal.

I love everything about this blanket except the fabric and construction of the blanket itself. It doesn't have a satin binding like older style blankets and the top tends to bunch up under my chin. I love the even warmth, the controls, the preheat feature, and having only one cord to plug into the bottom of the blanket. I bought and returned 4 other blankets before finding this one. I prefer the old style acrylic/polyester blankets with the satin bindings that have the wires woven into the blanket. But manufacturers don't seem to be making them, so this Sunbeam is, I believe, the best on today's market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Napewastewin Best I've ever had!
This blanket has a high loft, is thick, soft and warm even before you turn it on! With the pre-heat (quick) feature, there's no need to turn it on early in the evening to get it warm. I have arthritis, and so turn it up to high again before getting out of bed in the morning, then get up feeling cozy-warm, comfortable, read to go! The color is rich, the blanket perfect.
