Top positive review
Works great, provides plenty of heat, but I'm disappointed only 1 side has the soft texture.

My last heating pad took it's own life when the controller decided to melt into a puddle, so after shopping around a fair amount before settling on this one. I wish Canada had a better selection like the U.S (what else is new amirite?) but I've been using this one for about a month now and I'm pretty happy overall. I was a bit worried due to some reviewers claiming it doesn't get hot enough, but I had no such issues, totally confident I could achieve flesh melting temperatures when desired. Now I don't like insane heat, but I found even setting 1 or 2 got nice and toasty for me. The instant heat is a nice touch because hey, what else isn't instant these days?
But why 4 stars you may ask? Well, perhaps I'm being petty, but I found that due to the power cord connecting on the left side of the pad, but my power source being to my right, it forces me to run the cord under/over/behind me. Pretty annoying as it can get in the way or I end up losing the controller behind my bed, pillow, etc. Now I know what you're thinking, "just flip it over!", but alas, only one side of the cover has the nice soft texture, thus "limiting" where I can tuck the cord away. I suppose if I'm going to nitpick I'm also not a huge fan of the somewhat bulky power connection on the pad, which I find can get in the way.
