What reviewers liked

We also found the rounded controller easier to hold in our hand than the square-edged models of other pads.
Auto-shutoff feature for safety and convenience. Heats up quickly. Choose from multiple heat settings. Outer cover is machine washable.
The pad also has an automatic shut-off feature that prevents it from running endlessly and prevents it from overheating.
Many customers are fans of the pad’s super soft washable cover, while others love its six different heat settings and the fact that it can be used with both moist and dry heat.
The device provides for 6 heat settings, and the XpressHeat technology that completely heats the heating pad for 30 seconds and allows you to flexibly configure the remote therapeutic heating of various groups of muscles and joints for 2 hours ahead is integrated.

What reviewers didn't like

Sunbeam claims this pad heats up “three times faster” than other models, but it’s not something we noticed in testing.
Users must read directions carefully, especially if using moist heat.
Smells like hot plastic in the beginning
Non-removable cover – Although it is washable, for some this might be an issue that you can`t just take the cover off and throw it in the machine.
Can’t be sharply folded (though you can mold it gently to wrap around your joints), the cover is not removable.
Some units have failed prematurely, cord can get in the way, highest heat settings could be stronger
