Definitely a good value for the price ($**). It appears to be well constructed with strong seams. Like others have noted, I cannot feel the heating wires so that is a plus. Two minor issues for me. The plug module is on top where you can see/feel it. I'm taller so constantly touching it with my feet. Second is the controller. It only has 5 settings. My prior blanket had 12 settings which allowed fine tuning of the heat.
