No obvious bad points.
This is the joint best-performing electric blanket we tested. It topped all our tests except controller usability (where it still achieved a respectable 8/10) and reached 57°C.
Overall score includes:
Heat-up (40%): Shows how quickly the blankets reached their peak temperature on their highest heat setting.
Controls (20%): Assessed on the user-friendliness of the controls.
Fitting (20%): Assessed on both the initial fitting and whether the blanket stayed in place.
Cleaning (20%): Assessed on how easy the blanket was to clean and dry.
Running costs are calculated from the energy consumption of the blanket during warmup, then running it for 8 hours per night over the 3 months of winter on its “All-night” setting. If there is no “All-night” setting then only the warmup consumption is taken into account.
Price is from a June 2018 survey.

Fleece is nice
I wish the consumer review had been clearer. There is no separate control for the foot zone. I had a wonderful electric blanket I needed to replace that had separate controls for body and heat so you could dial the heat up and down. I bought this very expensive blanket on the consumer recommendation only to find the feet are hot and I can't control that. I like cool feet. As the weather was warm I put the blanket on the bed too late to get my money back. The foot zone should have been explained clearer I can't believe I wasted several hundred dollars on a blanket that doesn't give this option
Maybe, it depends on what you're after.

Love the fleece top - makes it really comfortable. Very quick to heat up, easy to use and fits the bed well. Bought ours last winter and are very happy with it.
Very minor - the blue LED light which stays on if it is on auto switch off, I find a bit bright so need to remember to turn it off before going to sleep.
Yes, I recommend this product.
