Okay so I decided to write this review for other potential mattress buyers that are having as hard a time mattress shopping as I was. Reading reviews and reluctant to give this mattress a chance based on there being few reviews vs. thousands or hundreds on other mattresses. I know I was weary of taking a chance on this mattress because of the limited number of reviews.
So for starters:
Good: packaged arrived sooner than projected and came in a box that wasn't beat or destroyed.
Not So Good: the bed, itself, was wrapped up and compressed in a plastic sheet with a thick heavy chemical smell. Thankfully the smell went away after a few hours of running my fan and leaving the window open. Still it's an obnoxious smell so I would definitely open this up in a well ventilated area.
Good: bed started to inflate and fill out within seconds of opening it. Didn't need 24 hours to reach it's full height. To get to its full height about 12 hours.
The Meh (not great but not a deal breaker): this bed is not plush but it does have some softness. Its not the sink in and have trouble getting out kind of bed. It's firm but it has a little give to it, if that makes sense. And, as another reviewer noted, its cover is slippery. I have a box spring and it does slide on it, so I'd recommend a frame that boxes it in. Unless you're okay with the mild annoyance of having to push it back against the wall (or wherever you have your bed). I'll also say this bed is a little bigger (like a centimeter or 2 off the edge) than my full box spring but I don't fault the bed on that.
I'd also like to add that I've had the bed almost 2 weeks, have noticed no dipping or anything like that. I've slept pretty well on it and love that I don't have to deal with the major dip in the middle my old pillowtop had.
I'll update my review if any major issues come up but so far, it's treated me well and I have no complaints. I've slept better on this than I have had in years. I do have a small 1.5 inch mattress cover I lay on it which I do for my peace of mind. I bought it for my old mattress to help even out the dip (mentioned above), and I couldn't stand the idea of throwing it out since its still got use to it.
So anyway, TLDR: it's a good mattress for the money. It's firmer than its described as but it's not too bad. Does come in with a chemical smell, but it disapates after a few hours.
