Rated 1 out of 5 by Frannie Lou Couldn't use heating pad
I was very happy with the functionality of the product, but couldn't use due to strong
chemical smell. I was overwhelmed with a terrible smell when I opened the box, but
was hoping it would go away. I tried airing it out for several days, but the smell was
so strong I couldn't stand it. I was disappointed, as I have always had good luck with Sunbeam products.

My mother has a nerve disorder that affects her eyes and has worked its way down to her neck. She struggles with sore muscles and tension daily and I bought this for her for mothers day. She loves it. She said it is perfect for calming her muscles at the end of the day.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Frzzywazy Great product, just one issue
I've had neck surgery years ago, and it aches. This Sunbeam warmer comes in handy and I like it. It's just when I go to fasten it with the Velcro it's too tight, it chokes me. If they made it a little larger it would be amazing.
Rated 4 out of 5 by QVCshopping gal great heating pad
I actually bought this heating pad for my husband who is going through physical therapy for an arthritis flare up in his neck. (years of football back in the day are catching up to him) Although we usually use thermacare pads when we need some heat therapy because we are not tethered to a cord, This is a nice cozy alternative. I would have rated it 5 stars but I am a little disappointed that it is not longer in the back. Still, we like it enough to keep it.
I am an ultrasound tech who often comes home with a cramp in the muscle just above my shoulder blades after a long day of work.. I have found this heating pad gives gentle relief. I like the choice of settings and the highest heat is not too high for me...the velour cover helps spread out the heat.
Rated 1 out of 5 by SiameseMum Too Small to be effective
Earlier in the year, I purchased another Sunbeam Heating pad that was three times the size of this one and thought that was what I was purchasing again. Instead, I got this and am very disappointed in the size of it - way to small for an adult. I will be more careful in the future when ordering and not really looking at the dimensions of the product.
Rated 2 out of 5 by marijam Shorter version not worth the money
I had the longer version that actually covers the shoulder blades. I made the mistake of washing it and it stopped working so I bought what I thought was the same thing. It isn't the same thing at all because it's much, much shorter. It's too short now. It needs to be long enough to cover the shoulder blades and it does not. They are charging the price of the longer version for this shorter version and it's just not worth it. I'm keeping it because it's better than nothing but I won't buy another one, not one that is this short length. They need to bring back the longer version.

This is a gift from God for anyone that has shoulder and neck pain! There is nothing else on the market that works as well as this does. I'd love to see it a little larger so that it covers more area, but even without the extra width, it's worth 10 stars.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ZuZu7 Perfect Christmas Gift!
Every year at Christmas, I struggle on what gifts to give my 93 year old father-in-law. I usually purchase practical items that I think would be beneficial. Came across this heating pad and immediately thought of his complaints of having cold shoulders even with a sweater on. He LOVES it! It was the perfect gift. The fact that it snuggly fits his shoulders so it is not always slipping off was great!
Rated 2 out of 5 by April49 Just not big enough.
This is just not big enough. The part that goes up the back of the neck is very thick and stiff; this make it very hard to lean back and relax as it digs into your head. It doesn't go far enough over the shoulders or down the back.

Took a chance and ordered this for my shoulder and neck pain. Was worried about the fit but it was fine. Love the magnetic close. It does work and the heat was excellent. Got the eggplant and love the color. Bought the longer one for my son for Christmas for his lower back pain and he loved it. Wish it would come back in stock as I want one too. There is a place for both of these products in our lives.
Rated 1 out of 5 by sharaya should have sent it back
flimsy - really disappointed - the design looks like a good idea but the execution isn't - really awkward to use - the neck piece falls over - the shoulder pieces slide so you have to lean on it (or lie on your stomach!) - about the only thing it does well is heat up...
Rated 5 out of 5 by Claire31 Huge improvement over the older heating pads
Excellent design. Fits perfectly over the shoulders and around the neck, it's soft and comfortable, stays in place thanks to magnetic connector, and has controls within easy reach at the mid-point in the cord. What's not to love?
