The Sunbeam Waterproof Heated Mattress Pad has all of the great benefits of other similar products, but with the added benefit of being waterproof. The problem that some waterproof mattress pads suffer from is the fabric not being very breathable. This model is made of 100% cotton and has a 200 thread count top with waterproof backing, so the cotton makes it very comfortable, while the waterproof backing protects the mattresses from spills and accidents at the same time.
Everything that you need to know about this mattress pad
This is a pretty standard heated mattress pad other than the fact that it is waterproof.

Are there any flaws? Are they deal breakers?
There are a number of reports that the lighting on the controller could be brighter. It is a little dim which makes it hard to see at night.
The issue that some customers find problematic is the location of the cable connection being at the foot of the bed instead of at the head of the bed. This causes people to hit their feet against the connecting wire which can be a bit awkward and hard to get used to for some. That comes down to personal preference. Generally the connection is placed at the foot of the bedding for most brands and models.
