I love this blanket! The inner heating cords are barely noticable and the blanket is very comfortable. The dual remotes are convenient - I do not like my side as warm. Plus the auto shutoff is wonderful. I do not have to worry if I remembered to turn it off. I am very happy with this purchase.
We are very pleased with this electric blanket. It provides the warmth we need but is soft and luxurious. Other reviews indicated that the cords are limited in length, and this is true. If you have a bed that is on the higher side from the floor, you will have to set the controls on the floor. We really like the preheat feature for those nights we forget to turn it on in advance of going to bed. And the dual controls feature works great.
We have owned many electric blankets since 1964 and this is the best of all. We have used this Queen Sized electric blanket for about a month now and enjoy the softness and lighter weight since retiring our old cheaper blanket. The digital controls installed easily, the wires inside the blanket are about the same size and the blanket heats evenly from top to bottom. Also the Preheat function works much faster and gets warmer than our old blanket. This blanket costs more but is certainly worth it. This would be a great gift for newly weds in very cold climates.
We bought a Queen size for our colder nights. The blanket heats nicely and quickly, especially wiht the "preheat" setting. The cords that lead back to the controls are a little short in my opinion and could be a little longer by a couple of feet for maximum dexterity in the placement of the cords. There are TWO plugs that go into the outlet with this blanket, not one as in most electric blankets that we have used. Our other electric blankets have given out after one or two years. Let's hope this in NOT the case with the "Beautyrest".
The visual display is so dim, even when it is at the maximum, that it requires darkening the room to view. I would never buy another product from this companywithout a proper demonstration. The return policy that the the blanket must be washed and dried before returning stopped me from returning this purchase.
