Jack Frost Nipping at our Nose (and Toes)We got this King Size Sunbeam Velvet Plush Heated Blanket less than a year ago as a gift during one of the worst winters in Washington. The blanket worked fine and was so comfy cozy. We plugged it in a couple of weeks ago, as we are beginning to dip near freezing, and the blanket is no longer warming. We went to the Sunbeam website and performed all the troubleshooting tips and tricks and nothing worked, so we unplugged it as indicated. These blankets are too expensive to last less than a year (even if you get it as a gift). I gave this a 2 because although it's not heating it is still soft and not heavy; if it was still working and keeping us warm I would give it an 8 or 9.

Still cold from
Cozy, but not warmI purchased several of these blankets a few weeks ago, for myself and family members. I liked the color selection e.g., gray, maroon, blue, brown. The blankets appeared to be soft and cozy as well. Now, after almost a month, the blankets don't heat up. Even at the highest setting, if they do become warm it's only at a certain part of the blanket, not all over. I really want to take them back. I've seen cheaper blankets, which while not as comfy looking may just do the job. We need blankets that hold heat! I knew it couldn't just be us. Looking at some reviews on this site, I can tell it isn't just our experience with these.

Good and bad from
Good and badI bought this about a month ago. It works much better than the one it replaced. At least for this one I will not have to go through the agony of returning it 3 times to get one that works.
The good part is that it does what it is supposed to do, heat the bed. The bad part is that we need to put a comforter on top so we don't lose the heat. With the plush velvet the comforter slides off! Yes, while the velvet plush is nice to touch it does not play well with other fabrics. It slides off the flannel sheets, the comforter slides off of it. We have tried a variety of fabrics but, nothing seems to work.

Walks off the bedWe loved the weight of the fabric and the warmth of it even without being turned on. It was about 2-4 inches too narrow for a Queen bed with 2 bodies sleeping under it.
But the real deal breaker was that it didn't play well with the other bedclothes. There is something about this fabric that caused the sheets to go one way under it, and the bedspread to go the other way... way far away, and right off the bed. It darn near caused a divorce, as my husband was sure I was pulling the covers off of him! Returned it within a week. Too bad. I was really excited to replace my old electric blanket with a much nicer one.

Velvet Plush BlanketI bought this blanket only a few months ago during a sale and bought a throw with it. I just opened the blanket to find that it doesn't even work. I've tried all the trouble shooting and still nothing. I called costumer service only to be talked to like I was an idiot and told the blanket was under warranty and to send it back. So I have to go out of my way to send back a blanket that I spent a lot of money on. Not to mention this is my SECOND velvet plush blanket in less that a year. The other one was out in less than a year. I thought the other one was just faulty so I would buy a second one but yet again no luck with this one. I've always loved sunbeam but I will not be buying another blanket from them.

Blacked out control panelAnd excessively hot to the touch! Couldn't shut off with the on off button. Had to unplug it. My husband bought me this beautiful comfortable king size dark brown electric blanket for Christmas of 17. Noticed about the 4th time using it it wasnt heating up correctly. Then tonight I turned it on preheat to return in about 5 minutes only to find the blanket not warm and the control panel insanely hot with a solid blacked out screen!
He paid way too much for this to have these types of issues for only have been used a handful of times. Wish I could recommend but not under these conditions.

Super soft!I bought this several months ago. I was a bit concerned because some reviews said it
moved around off the bed". It does shift some...but no big deal. Simply pull it back up around you. The benefits FAR outweigh this shifting issue. It is the softest blanket I have ever had. It is just lush! The electric blanket part allows for a mild warm, up to as warm as you would want it to be. I have washed it (following directions given on the bottom of the blanket), and it turned out as soft and beautiful as before. I am a very picky shopper. I LOVE this electric blanket and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Great BlanketBought this a few weeks ago, shipping time was excellent, I thought the controllers that came with the blanket would be the ones with the preheat feature, but were the rotary dial controllers instead. This was not clear in the description on the item in the online store. Maybe they will make this a little more clear for future customer. This is the only reason I did not rate at 5 stars. Otherwise everything about the blanket is 5 stars. It is plush, warms quickly and more than covers our king size bed. It will keep you warm on the coldest nights. I sleep very warm without the blanket and like getting in bed with warm covers.
