I won't buy this again. I have had mine less than a year and just had to buy a new electric blanket. It just quit heating and I would get continual error messages on the display. It seemed that if my husbands side was on, mine wouldn't work. The sheet itself is cheap, and the sides are papery, so it wasn't surprising mine ripped when I was making the bed.. The plug is near the bottom of your feet, so you are constantly hitting it in the middle of the night with your foot. As for heat, it did well when it was working and made the bed comfortable on a cold night. I liked the fact that it had dual controls and that we could set the temperature for our personal preferences.
