I bought this pillow mostly because its claim to 700 fill power of down and 16 oz of fill for the standard pillow. I thought 700 fill power meant it would be of good quality and last longer. Its firmness says it's soft medium which I liked better than other which just said soft. I alsoI thought 16 oz of fill or more for a standard pillow was fairly firm and poofy. I let the pillow sit out for a few days hoping it would poof up more but it didn't. It stayed fairly flat. When I lay on it I can feel straight through it. If I sleep on it I'll end up bunching it up which I don't find very comfortable either. I would give this pillow 1 star, but i'm thinking maybe I need to learn more about pillows next time before buying another.
We love sleeping on these. The down is soft, and the pillows have just a tiny bit of firmness, which we find perfect. They do need to be fluffed up every morning, but we haven't gotten any feather poke-through. They also look great on the bed because they fluff up so big.
I've purchase 3 different pillows from Overstock before finding this one and it is perfect. I was looking for a soft, small pillow, that can be squished up into just about any shape. I like to have 4-6 of this type of pillow on my bed so I can support my head and neck in any position. If you want a firm pillow, or only sleep with one pillow, you will not like this one. I prefer the lower thread count because the pillow stays cooler, and is softer. The 500 thread count pillow I purchased before this was a little too firm and full, the fabric too stiff, and it stayed warm all night
Good pillow for the money. I was afraid to buy one without touching it, but I am pleasantly pleased.

These pillows look comfortable. And that's about all they're good for. They look good. If you actually put your head on the pillow, your head will sink right through the pillows onto the mattress. Yea neck pain! If your head wieghs 3 pounds or less, you might like this pillow, otherwise avoid it.
These down pillows are AMAZING. I have ordered other down-filled pillows from O. Those pillows really flattened-out with use, so I assumed all down pillows would be the same. Not these! After three months of nightly use, the two pillows I purchased in October are STILL like new! Big! Fluffy! Soft! I just placed another order for two more of these pillows!
My opinion of this pillow overall is good. I was a little disappointed after I received it and read the tag that stated "minimum 75% Down" as I thought I was buying a 100% down pillow; but after using it, I found it acceptable and for the price, a good value.
I've only had these for about a week now, but they seem like great pillows---especially for the price for a set of two. I'm no pillow guru, mind you---but they seem to fluff pretty well (fluff---is that the right word for what you do to down filled things---not really sure). Pillows were a bit softer than I was expecting, but they still work well. If they had any odor, it was gone after one night of leaving them to air out. These pillows, combined with a new down comforter---sweet dreams, baby!
I always start by reading the negative comments.. I am not sure why, I guess it adds balance to my purchase. And so I'll start by saying this, if you prefer soft pillows then you'll be over the top with this, if you prefer hard then look for something else. I have tried (per advise of many) hard pillows, or pillows that allegedly support your cervical spine, I only wake up with a headache every day.. plus the bulk, and the spine of the feathers is positively unbearable .. tossing and turning all night trying to find a comfortable position isn't my idea of support . I had so many pillows because I was purchasing something new every few months and super expensive. I gave away half of them and made a pillow out of a small summer feather comforter that had been washed a thousand times over, I rolled it and flattened it into a pillow and it was so tattered but the only thing that gave me comfort.. when I read the negative reviews here especially the ones claiming that this is super flat (it isn't at all flat) it is a very thick pillow in fact which you quickly sink into it is delicious, but anyhow after reading that specific negative review I was sold.. so the bottom line that you should take from this is, if you like soft, cushy cloud like pillow that you'll sink into, this is for you.. if you want the latest sponge pillow err memory foam or funny shaped concoction that will wedge your head between three triangles, or some Tudor society leather cradle for your head, then run don't simply walk away from this..
