Pretty much everything. Consumer eventually took notice of my review and have made changes, including acknowledging it has a wool layer on top (not as thick as the Sunbeam model), timer settings and separate settings for body and feet. I have no connection to Goldair but have to wonder how they rated this model so far below the similar Sunbeam models, and continue to, when their original review had so many errors. We paid only $189 for the King size version of this same model so prices can vary widely. I have seen them elsewhere for far less than $500.
Always defaults to Full Power (body and feet) with 1hr timer setting when turned on, which is probably not the best, but I'd rate it well above our older Sunbeam model that didn't have the comfortable wool layer on top.
Consumer again, are short on details in their reviews. It's a pity they never acknowledged their review was rubbish. My biggest concern is that many Consumer reviews contain errors, far more than they used to. I have to wonder whether their quality control has been axed as a cost saving measure.
Yes, I recommend this product.
