This is the second heated mattress pad I have owned, love getting into a warm bed at night. I prefer the design features of the Restonic Mattress Pad to my prior pad (by Ambiance). Having the plug attachments to the pad located on the top sides made it easy to set up the pad and plug it into the outlet, my prior pad plugged in under the surface near the foot section and was detectable through the sheets. The wires and connectors are undetectable in the Restonic pad. Another benefit to the connectors being located at the top of the pad is you don't have to run the wires up to the head of the bed to have access to the controllers. Great controller design as well, one button for on/off and a smooth rotating dial with lit numbers. Prior controller had three buttons: one for on/off, one for increased heat level, one for decreased heat level; if you weren't looking directly at the controller (which you often aren't while in bed) it was easy to mistakenly turn the pad off or adjust the temperature in the wrong direction. Restonic dials move clockwise for increased heat, counterclockwise for decreased heat, intuitive movements which eliminate the possibility of adjustment errors. The final feature I am pleased with is the level of heat radiation, although the pad does get hot on the highest setting, it is a soft heat with no chance of burning your skin if you happen to fall asleep before adjusting down. Happy and warm.
The warming mattress pad provides awesomely comforting warmth. I love the heat on my tired and sore muscles. The fact that my wife and I can control how much heat we each get is excellent. What I think can and should be changed: The heating mattress pad needs a stronger elastic to hold it securely in place. The heated portion of the pad should not extend up under the pillow it tends to make your head to hot when you turn the heat up for your muscles. I highly recommend this product!
We bought this for my 89-year old mom who lives in the bottom floor apartment in our home in western Washington. It is safe, cozy and keeps her warm. I am only sorry I did not get it for her sooner. I especially like that it is safe and waterproof.
Very impressed with this product. It fits our deep pocket adjustable king mattress without slipping when we raise the bed. With the dual controls, I can be warmer on my side of the bed (and the pups sleep on my side so they're warm and toasty!). Really love this mattress pad!
This is a great warming pad. It has a generous fit and is very thin. The magic come when turning it on. It heats up extremely fast, almost immediately. I keep mine on about a 3 because it gets almost to warm on the higher settings. It feel great on an aching back and legs. Love it.
I love this heated mattress pad. I had been using a little heating pad to relieve the pain in my hip, but now I don't need it. I can put this mattress pad on 2 or 3 and still get enough warmth to relieve the pain most of the time. I'm using a light weight down comforter with it because I turn my heat down to 62 at night and it's been a very cold winter. When it's below zero outside, I turn the mattress pad up to 8-10. It's great, and my only criticism is that the skirt on it is way, way too big even for my 16" thick mattress and I find myself having to pull it tighter every day.
My only complaint was I thought I was getting a different product the first time I received the item, since the package label said Sealy and I ordered Restonics. When I got the second one I called the number on the package and was told that company made many brands and it was what I had ordered, it just didn't say so! So, we kept it and am glad we did! The dual controls are great and the pad gets just warm enough to take the chill off the bed on the "lo" setting. It makes for a very comfortable night's sleep!
I am very pleased with the cover I purchased. The shopping online, the description, the order instructions and finally the completion of the order process was extremely easy. The shipment took longer than advertised. Overall I am happy with the purchase process and the product.
