I have used a 48 heat mat for 10+ years with no troubles. However I have three single sized mats ( 12) that only lasted 2 years.
still working

This worked great the first year. This year it stopped working completely. If the price was lower or quality was higher, this would be a great product for every gardner. But this falls short. BTW... There must be only 1 manufacturer, because they all look alike, so buying elsewhere won't help :(
stopped working after 1 year

Like the other complaints, my mat worked great the first year and did not operate the second. I did not replace this product either. Very expensive for one year use!

The cost of these mats keeps climbing and the value lessens. Out of 5 mats used for 2 seasons, 3 have stopped working. This is nearly a $100 replacement cost. If the industry wants the non-commercial customer to continue using these mats, a cost adjustment is necessary. I won't replace them, I'll find another solution to heating the bottoms of my seed trays, thank you very much.
Argh! Lasted Only 1 Year

Yep, like in the other reviews, my carefully handled mat stopped heating near the beginning of its second season, although it worked terrifically the first year. I have decided not to replace it, and just start the seeds earlier.
Worked great three seasons.

My seedling heat mat came with a seedling starter kit and worked great until the end of its third season. I really liked it and am looking to replace it with a larger one. I hope the next one I buy lasts longer.

The heating mat worked good for one year, second time using it there was no heat. The mat was very good while it worked the first year. Not worth the money that was spent.
