Reasonable price & it has performed OK so far. Machine washable is a great plus & the polyester "fleecy top" doesn't take long to dry on the line. Excellent fitting with no slippage on our queen bed.
Hard plastic controller sockets on the top-side of the blanket!! I'm sure the reviewer would have noticed the controller sockets on the top (fleecy) side of this model of Jason electric blanket? They are exactly a pillow width down from the top, right where your arm or shoulder can be. Or even where you may sit on the side of the bed! They are HARD & annoying! Our old blanket (Sunbeam) had the sockets on the UNDERSIDE... where they may be felt but not as badly as right on the top! We have resorted to putting the blanket on "upside down" with the controllers at the bottom of the bed. Poor review
Maybe, it depends on what you're after.

Heats the area where the heating coils are quickly
No heating coils at all anywhere near the feet area which is where you would expect and like some warmth.
Now having a fight to get a refund.
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
