I've been using electric blankets most of my life, and sadly, my old one has died (only one side works). Unfortunately, prices have gone up considerably since I last purchased one, so when I found this one, I was quite pleased, knowing that Sunbeam was a good brand name. The fabric is fairly substantial, and very soft to the touch. The wires are not terribly noticable, and the cords are long enough to reach any outlet. I was surprised to find that there is only one plug into the blanket for a queen size (most queen blankets plug in at two different spots), however I thought that as long as it did the job I would not be concerned. BUT, it did not do the job. Even set on high, this blanket never got more than slightly warm. Perhaps electric blankets have changed since I last bought one (three years ago??) but I'm used to them getting quite warm, so that the bed gets REALLY toasty - enough so that I need to turn it off before I go to sleep. Not so with this blanket; it never got past the "hardly notice that it's on" stage before you're ready to get up in the morning. In short - DON'T BUY IT - unless you have nothing better to do with your money, or really don't want to get warm at night! This one's going back to the store!
