As a side sleeper who likes to scrunch a down pillow, this takes a while to get used to but I have found it to be very good. It took about a week but I have been sleeping soundly and it has relieved my neck pain. I can't speak to the quality as it less than a month old but I have noticed that it doesn't seem to fully bounce back after a night's sleep. It also seems slightly thinner than the listed dimensions. It looks a tad flat next to a regular pillow but this seems immaterial to its purpose. Buying a pillow is so personal that I hesitate to recommend one but this has been first rate in my experience.
i bought this pillow for my grandson and he loved it. it is a firm and heavy pillow. the only thing i thought was lacking was the size of it. it is not a standard pillow size. it is smaller. however, it is a very good value considering the price. if you can't afford one of the more expensive type, then this is the pillow for you since it has all the qualities without the high price tag.
Both my husband and I have tried to make friends with these pillows. My husband gave up. He says its too high and too hard. I am still using it, but can't say I really like it. I was expecting the pillow to mold under my head more, however it does not really have enough "give" in the foam to be comfortable.
I recently purchased a new mattress constructed in a similar manner as this pillow. Since we choose the the firmest of the choices and love it, I thought I might be just as pleased with this pillow. I'm not unhappy, just not thrilled. I sleep just fine with it. And I can't say that about just any pillow. I have a closet full of rejected pillows in my search for THE ONE. I found it a couple of years ago and now it's time to replace it and the company is out of business. Anyway, I can and do fall asleep with this pillow and I wake up well rested. It's not fluffy at all and I think I miss that. My old pillow is firm but fluffy. Really lack of fluff is my only issue with this pillow. I'm going to give it a full week of use, before I decide to keep or add to the closet stash. If fluffy isn't important to you and you like a firm pillow, this is a great choice.
This is a really great pillow. When I can afford, will order another.The firmness is just right for me, and the memory foam with gel keeps the firmness the same. Does not get overly hot like some memory foam pillows. I got it when I ordered my new memory gel foam mattress and I am extremely pleased with both products!! Recommend it highly, even though it is a bit pricey!
Pillows are a personal thing, but after doing a lot of research - both in and out of stores - I believed I'd made a good choice. Not so. Way too hard. Perhaps I need to give it time, but I don't want to chance not being able to return it.
I purchased this pillow because I heard that the gel would help keep you cool. It really didn't. It is a very firm pillow and hard to sleep on your side with. I have neck problems and thought this pillow would help support it, but after 3 months of use I went back to my old latex foam pillow.
I have had the pillow for a few weeks now, and definitely like it. It feels a little more like a regular pillow, while still having the comfort of a memory foam pillow. Since it is not contoured, you can flip it, and keep the cold side on your face. It does have a smell for the first few days, but that does go away. If you are like me though, I recommend having another pillow on your bed as well.
