To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I feel totally ripped off that this product was allowed to be sold in Australia and if it wasn't for the cost of postage I would return it asap.I will never deal with Amazon again and will recommend that my friends do the same.VERY UNHAPPY CUSTOMER BILL NINNESS
I bought this blanket and it worked great up until last night. I went to turn the blanket off and the controller was so hot so could barely touch it and the 2 buttons on the controller melted down to a smaller size. I could no longer change the temperature of the blanket.
I requested a refund as I’m afraid that this is now a fire hazard and I don’t want this to happen to anyone else.
After reading numerous reviews on various heated blankets, I decided to spend a little more and try the Beautyrest. The blanket itself was soft, but was very thin. The heating elements could easily be felt, but the biggest problem was the blanket just didn’t heat up very much. The heating elements were also spread out so far apart that I couldn’t feel any warmth near the edges of the blanket, and since it’s so thin, I still felt cold under it. Even on high, it didn’t get very warm. The control and cord were also very heavy and cumbersome. Sending it back. Better off with a regular, thicker blanket.
I love almost everything about this blanket! Three different settings for heat, soft and feels like wrapping yourself in a cloud. When it’s on high be careful to keep the blanket STRAIGHT because the folds will get very hot very fast. Overall would recommend
Edit: After writing this review the blanket has stopped working completely, within a month of purchase. I’ve never left it on for more than an hour at a time and as soft and comfortable as it is I would no longer recommend if this is any indication of durability for the product.
At first this product was amazing. Very comfortable and worked really well. But after an hour or two of use the controller/circuit boards had a short and melted causing the blanket to get extremely hot and probably would have caught fire if I didn't catch it. Be very careful trusting the automatic shut of, or leaving it plugged in after use.
Company contacted us and warranties the blanket the new one has a caution on the remote to make sure you don’t cover it up and always keep it out in the open so it doesn’t overheat but all in all new blanket works great and company did hold up to their end took a while but they came through they have a new person doing their warranty work and she is great.
Worked great for about one month then quit my wife used it every day I bought this one due to the long factory warranty but we tried for 6 months to get ahold of them left multiple messages and no return multiple calls never could speak with anyone on it at all so had a broken blanket in one month light just flashes on the remote.
This is a lightweight, soft and pretty throw. I use it every morning and it keeps me very warm. My husband stole it from me in the evenings. So, I’ll get another one but not for awhile because it is a little pricey for me.
this blanket is really soft and warms up quickly. the size is perfect for my desk at work (I was using a twin size before) 2 things that are not a deal breaker but not the best. 1. the 2 hour shut off for safety is not my favorite feature. I use mine all day so I just have to keep turning it on but that isn't a huge deal. 2. it does shed. little purple fuzz balls fall off every once in awhile but again not a big deal
I wish I had paid more attention to the reviews. While this is a very soft and a beautiful throw blanket, it is way too thin compared to my previous other brand heated throws. It did warm up very well, high is really hot. The temperature gauge nice control and I really liked how it stayed plugged into blanket. One complaint I’ve had on other brands, which is why I went with Beauty Rest this time. I also like that it shuts off on its own after a period of time. I would have given 5 stars if it had just been thicker and not being able to very easily feel the wires inside because everything else about it makes it 5 Star.
