Saved me through winter!
I got my first one through my dad's friend as she purchased the wrong size. I'd never tried one before that but honestly could not live without now. Easy to put on bed and it can also be washed easily. If anything happens to it now i would definitely re-purchase no matter the price, it's definitely worth it! Good settings and so easy to use, i definitely prefer my electric blanket to heaters now. Has helped me so much through autumn in winter, and when summer comes around I just take it off my bed to wash and put it back on when it gets cold :)
When on my bed, can't even tell it's there, feels fine!
This is perfect cant live without it!
I really really love this electric blanket it warms up my bed very quickly very good to have on a cold winter night. I told all my friends to buy one
Far from perfect
Regret not reading reviews, if I had would not have purchased it. The control is the invention of someone with miniscule knowledge of the eyesight of most sleepers. It is absolutely impossible to read the heating number settings at night. In fact almost impossible to read them any time. When at night to increase the heat from say 2 is impossible; you do not know whether it's on or off or at 9. Useless design fault trying to "go digital" when visual numerical rotor would be viable. Don't send control back to its inventor to correct; send it to ...a practical person. Recommend no one buys until this major fault is corrected. Bought for my daughter a $49 queen fitted electric blanket with nine settings (at almost 1/4 price) with a control that is readable. SUNBEAM can you supply another remodeled control? Otherwise will return within 30 days.
Keeps me warm at night
This is an excellent buy for winter, a must have. Value for money, The blanket heats up quickly and is comfortable to use. There is also a number of heat settings to suit your preference,
perfect Electric Blanket
I have owned my sleep perfect for 4 months and I love it . Mind you it took a while to get use to the settings and controls as you cannot leave this electric blanket on all day , the main reason for the purchase . Once we were use to the dial and settings all has been good, I would highly recommend this electric blanket especially for the young and elderly who tend to forget to turn them off
Good value for money.
We bought two of these for our kids' beds. We live in Tasmania. Really like the feature on the controller that has a timer - it will automatically turn itself off after 75 minutes or 12 hours.
Worked well for 6 months
Fantastic start up warming. Make sure you put a mattress cover over it as it could be a little uncomfortable on its own.
It worked well unless one side of the blanket stopped working
Perfect for winter.
I have always been sceptical of electric blankets due to various house fires sparked because of this but I did my research and found sunbeam was producing these so I thought well why not give it a try. Just saying, NO... REGRETS.
Less could be more
Fits well onto mt queen sized bed. The electric blanket has nine heat settinggs, 1-3 bearly warm the sheets, 4, 5 and 6 are what 1,2 abd three where like on the old 70's electric blanket and l am yet to try higher. Dont know if having alltnese extra temps adds anything at all to the product. There are two time contols one for 75min other 12 hours, no in between, have used both the twelve hour setting put that onone night when i left for work on a particular cold night, for the dog. Dog loved it and turned off half hour before going to bed myse...lf and having a lambs wool underlay was still warmish(5 heat setting, had on 3day prior, no warmth) the 75 min setting is good if you can fall off to sleep in that time, saying that you wont wake up in a sweat because you had forgotten to turn off, here l would not use the 12 hour option Says more coils are at the bottom of the blanket to keep your feet warm. This is not noticable although l wont say it is a false claim, could be further diwn the bed or for that fact higher, l am six foot so may reach betweem the two End of the day, purhased this on special at just under $100, and think its okay at that price. Had i payed full price may have given this product three stars
Very comfortable, easy to fit onto the bed, heats up very quickly, heats in the foot area too , you have a choice of settings one to six and a timer with two settings one hour or nine hours. Wouldn't be without it in winter.

We haven't had an electric blanket since childhood when they were hard and lumpy. Due to my husband becoming very unwell, he needed gentle warmth at night. Despite the air conditioning running constantly the electric blanket did the trick and has given great comfort. My only gripe is the controller is hard to read. Having a king size bed makes getting sheets etc hard to fit but this was easy and had plenty of give.
The best of the best!!!
Sunbeam electric blanket is the best heating system I can find. It gets warm very fast. I turn it off when I go to bed and it keeps the heat in the blanket until I fall asleep. Safe electricity and doesn't make the whole bedroom dry!
OMG this electric blanket is so cool it warms up really quickly and its very comfortable I've had this electric blanket since last winter 2016 and I am reusing it this year winter 2017. Has been one of the best purchases for keeping warm. Heaters make it hard for me to breathe and makes me feel dry and suffocated whereas having the electric blanket has left me warm all around
Very poor product
second winter, about to try and get my third blanket, same failure as everyone else. Suggest people google it first. The controller lights flash, both times the failure has been on the same side of the blanket.
Saves heaps of electricity!

Fantastic start up warming. Make sure you put a mattress cover over it as it could be a little uncomfortable on its own. The controls are better than the past ones we've had . A real good purchase. No problems so far.
First one didn't last two months, second one less than a month
Poor quality, failed in a short period of time. Flashing lights on controller. Replaced and the same thing happened again in a shorter period of time. Could not recommend buying a Sunbeam electric blanket.
This is so good, I can't keep my dog off my bed.
After giving my dog my spare doona I needed to find a way to keep warm that wouldn't blow my budget. The Sunbeam Sleep Perfect was recommended by the shop assistant as being value for money. I had not used an electric blanket since I was a kid so I was keen to see if they still stuck into your back and had that coarse scratchy material. I was pleasantly surprised that not only was the fabric soft and the heating coils well padded but that it was in fact, like a fitted sheet. It was easy to fit and has two separate heating panels, each with its own control. Highly recommended by both me and my dog.
great electric blanket and perfect for cold winter nights. Cannot notice the electric blanket under sheets which is great. Easy to use remote and the option of using a timer is awesome. doesnt take long to heat up and once warm, is a very nice device all winter long.
Love this electric blanket which could keep me so warm during the winter night. The temperature setting can be adjust automatically or annually, it won't overheat but simply keep you warm comfortably for a good night sleep.
