Summary

The Sunbeam Velvet Plush is a lightweight blanket and is very soft compared to other heated blankets. It has dual controllers that will suit couples well and has a very large range of temperature settings. It is slippery and will annoy those who want their blankets to stay exactly where they put them. It heats very quickly and has a preheat function.

The wires are bit prominent for such a lightweight blanket and it may not always heat evenly. It comes with a 10 hour auto shut-off  function when you are too deep in dreamland to think about turning off your heated blanket.

Comparison

This blanket is much lighter than other heated blankets and has long cords to fit on larger beds and long couches. It is very soft but also slippery and may slide off your bed at night. If you are a restless sleeper it will not work well and a mattress pad may be more suitable to keep you warm through the entire night.

It has more temperature options than other blankets with 10 choices, but it heats up very well even at low settings.  It heats very quickly and is very warm.  It does not attract animal fur as other plush blankets do, which will suit pets and their owners.

It is larger than throws and will work well for a couch or bed. When you use on the couch only the side you need can be heated because it has dual controllers. You can comfortably watch your favorite series while the rest of the blanket is unheated and safe off the couch.

Verdict

The Sunbeam Velvet Plush Heated Blanket is a lightweight heated blanket that is not only soft to the touch but warm quickly will suit you very well if you don’t like to have heavy blankets pressing down on you as you sleep but still want the warmth they  give you.

It is not for restless sleepers, if you toss and turn because you are cold, this blanket will warm you and help you rest peacefully. But if you sleep actively, turning and moving throughout the night, then this blanket will easily decide to leave the bed for the more peaceful floor.  It is a good blanket if you like to sleep warm and light or cuddle with a silky soft blanket while you enjoy your favorite book.
