Not quite as warm as I'd hoped
This is a comfortable and practical throw for those cold winter nights - but not quite warm enough for my liking. Even at maximum you never get toasty. Having said that, once you settle in it's comfortable and does the job. It has a nice fabric and can be used as a standard blanket as well – after removing the power cord.
Perfect couch companion
This is one of the best things I've ever bought.
It's so snuggly and warm. Uses hardly any power so I don't need to heat my lounge room as much.
Gets very warm in the 4 setting, have never used the higher settings as I think it'd cook me!
I wish it was a little longer, doesn't cover my feet if I lay straight. Sunbeam, please make a version for tall people!
My only major problem with this is my dogs try and steal it from me as they love the heat!
After buying a different heated throw that stopped working after a few weeks I bought this one instead. The quality is definitely better, I think it's still a little expensive for what it is but there aren't a lot of other options, it's basically Sunbeam or no-name brands that will break quickly. Having used other heated throws and electric blankets before I think the heat-up time and amount of heat produced is pretty standard.
After purchasing a cheaper branded throw 3 weeks before, (it stopped working after 5 uses.) I purchased the Sunbeam one immediately after that happened! I found this throw takes 10 minutes to warm up, and then it is only just warm, I prefer it to be a lot warmer. Just when I started to feel warmer, after 3 hours it switched itself off, not realising that, I felt cold again and had to restart it. Unless you keep checking on the setting, you don't realise it is off. I would have preferred one that heats up quicker and warmer and stays on!
