Rated 4 out of 5 by jillyd Good Mattress Pad
The Sunbeam Premium Heated Mattress Pad replaced an old version that just wasn't doing the job anymore. The new one is very nice, fit the extra thick mattress great and heats very well. In some places too well...on preheat there seem to be spots that heat up too much and don't cool back to normal temp with the rest of the pad. Overall, though, like the quality and operation of the mattress pad very much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuvLogHomes Snuggly Coccoon of Warmth
This is our 2nd purchase of this brand/model. Our first one lasted 5 winters in our North GA log home. Decided to replace it when they went on sale after Christmas this year. We love this mattress pad! Dual controls let each of us select our warmth setting; padded well so you don't feel the wires; fits our double pillow top mattress well. Guess we adjusted a long time ago to the attachment at the foot of the bed so we don't notice it. The controls on this newer model are a tad lightweight so they have to be set just right on the nightstand or they tend to tip backwards from the weight of the cord, but that truly is a minor issue...we have that solved! Nice to be able to toss a couple of large logs in the fireplace at bedtime, turn down the thermostat to 58 (propane is expensive!), and snuggle all night long in a pre-heated cozy warm bed. The cat likes it too!

I love it. My old one lasted for ever and finally had to buy a new one. This one works great and the instructions are so easy to follow, Of course it is the end of winter, but the few times I have used it, it has been great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Villageanne Finally I Am Warm All Night!
We have used electric blankets for years but have never really been satisfied with the quality of heat, softness of fabric or the feel of wires. This us the first time we have ever purchased a heated mattress pad. Now, we are wondering why we waited so long. It seems to help with arthritis pain including back pain. It is warm no matter where I roll to in the night. No cold spots.
The queen size has duel controls, which makes it nice when we like different heat levels.
The pad us thicker than I expected and we cannot feel the wires.
My only complaint is that the controls plug in at the foot if the bed so I have to run it under the bed to the head to plug it in. My dog sleeps under the bed and that concerns me a bit. Also I wish the controls were weighted a bit more so they stayed on the night stand where I put them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Okie918 Disappointing product
After using my last Sunbeam heated mattress pad for 16 years, I bought another Sunbeam. How disappointing!! It has never heated evenly, my feet are always cool (that is supposed to be the warmest area), and now after 1 winter season, the control started flashing F2. I followed the instruction manual's troubleshooting guide, then called Sunbeam customer service. I was told to pack it up and send it to them at my expense and they would fix it at my expense. I would rather buy another brand!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SheetConnoisseur1 Bad place to plug into the fabulous, cushy, warm mattress pad
All in all it is a very nice heated mattress pad. We have used heated mattress pads for the last thirty years and have come to learn what we like and what we don't like so much. The preheated setting on this one is exceptional. It heats up our mattress and sheets and then goes right back down to the temperature we had it set on originally. It also has a wonderful polyester, lycra feel skirt that tucks in with ease around our big, thick mattress. It also has elastic all the way around the pad...very nice! What we are not overly pleased with,as none of our other mattress pads have had this to think about, is their lack of thought about plug placement into the mattress heater itself. All of our other heated pads, have had the connector at the bottom, flat end of our mattress, so you never feel nor know the plug is there. This one, however, has the plug- in on top of the foot of the mattress with a very obtrusive tag (on my side) that crinkles when my foot hits it. This makes for a tiny area of foot room between the tag and the plug-in at my foot area. I do appreciate the dual control, but prefer the dual plug-in to the mattress pad, as well as having it on the flat end of the foot of the mattress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by luvthepad1 I looooove this heated mattress pad!!!
A few weeks ago, in response to an email ad regarding a 12-hour home furnishings sale, I ordered this heated mattress pad while the price was reduced. Words cannot express just how pleased I am with this product! For several years, I have slept under a Sunbeam brand electric blanket and thought that it was wonderful, but at the beginning of this winter, I slept in a friend's bed that had a heated mattress pad on it, and it convinced me that the heated mattress pad was actually warmer and more comfortable than the electric blanket I was accustomed to. So... I knew that I would watch JCPenny sales and when a heated mattress pad was put on sale, I'd order myself one. Getting this heated pad, has been the best purchase I've made in a long time. I turn the pad on preheat about an hour before bedtime, and as I'm getting in bed, I turn my thermostat way down since I like sleeping in a cold room, and when I crawl into that toasty warm bed, I thank the Lord for giving me the good sense to order this heated pad! Most nights I keep the setting on low and am comfortable and sleep like a log. Of course, I can't comment on how reliable the product is since I've been using it for only a month or so, but I will take it off the bed at the beginning of Spring, laundry it as specified, and will store it appropriately until next winter. I am anticipating several years of reliable, enjoyable service from this product. I can vouch for it heating my bed much better than any electric blanket I've ever used, and don't intend to ever go back to using an electric blanket as long as heated mattress pads are available.
However, there are some minor design features that I would change if I had made the product: The control/ dial light needs to be brighter so that it is visible during the night if the setting needs to be changed and the user doesn't have to turn on the room light to see how to operate the control; the control "buttons" need to be re-engineered so that they are NOT flush with the rest of the control, making it easy to operate the on/off/preheat feature and/or the temperature setting in low-light conditions. The inconvenience of this hard-to-operate control is tolerable just because the thing heats so nicely and allows me to sleep so comfortably. With a re-designed control, the product would be perfect in my opinion!!!
Now.... all this said, I think the product was still over-priced even on "sale." A mattress pad shouldn't cost this much, even if it does have heating coils!!!
