Just received recently-- so still deciding but-- I got the beige color- fleece is thin but adequate if it continues to work [ read other reviews on that issue.] Issue #1 - throw ''says'' 3 heat levels -- mine seems to have only 1. = mildly warm-- but all over warm-- not just on spots so far. Issue #2 - the control lights up as 3 heat settings progress-- but limited heat- HOWEVER the control gets and stays --very-- warm. cord is about 6 feet long ! Issue #3 -- supposed to auto cut off at 3 hours-- mine does random auto cut offs from 1 to 2 hours max...not 3 yet. Issue #4 1 year warranty [ only 90 days to return to Walmart= SAVE THE RECEIPT] warranty requires you to pay shipping to a factory and wait for their decision-- which could take how long???/// I'm hopeful it will give me at least 1 winter season of use-- the next 6-7 months. I would not wash this throw-- looks too delicate to handle even a mild cycle and I assume the internal wiring won't work afterwards. The wiring is noticeable but not bad. Thicker fleece would hide that feel but at $19.96 [ 10-2016] you get this now a days. BTW it uses 115 watts at 110volts and lists MANY use restrictions in fine print of the '' limited'' warranty. Made in China FOR - ''JCS''=JARDEN CONSUMER SOLUTIONS but sold as Sunbeam/ Holmes Choice.....hmmmm. no warranty address given you must call 1-800-892-7684 for directions[ and then you arrange and pay shipping to them.] return shipping/ fees back to you? unknown. call. I'll give it a try but no recommendation now.
