I purchased these pillows because of the great reviews: Theres lots of good reviews, and some bad reviews. Seemed like theres only a handful bought "bad" pillows so I took a chance and purchased it anyway.. The pillows look great once its in a case and on the bed. I couldve sworn it was described as firm, but as I lay my head on it, my head falls straight down to the bed. No support! Its tooooo soft. As for the "gel" description: it seems as if its regular "fill"..Nothing fancy. I guess I was naive enough to believe that the "gel" was that comfy jelly fill stuff. Slept on it for 1 night, and ended up switching back to my old pillows in the middle of the night. These will only be used for the decor pillows now.
I think these gel filled pillows are great. Before buying, I read some reviews that complained about the pillows being too soft and that you sink in too far. I've found out that the pillows do sink in a bit, but I find that comfortable. I guess that's personal preference. I would recommend buying these pillows and if you don't like them, put them in a guest bedroom. I'm gong to buy some more. They are very compressible. I think I can squeeze one of these into my overhead bag when I travel. These pillows are much better than most hotel pillows.

When they arrived...2 king sized pillows arrived in a box that looked like it held one standard size pillow, so right away I thought no way, they sent the wrong thing...but they blew out of the box when i opened it, and then I figured they were supposed to be "extra firm"...how could they be? Well, they are, and they don't lose their shape. Amazing pillows. Tried everything else, so i figured why not try gel? Well, I wasnt disappointed! I really like them. I like firm pillows but don't like when they hurt your head...these don't do that...they are firm AND soft, if that makes sense. So, they are quite comfortable. I would highly recommend them!!!
I did a lot of research on pillows before purchasing these pillows. I replaced all my bedding as we purchased a new bed. I am very pleased with the quality of the pillows, they are as they were described on the website, and we are both very happy with this purchase. The price was extremely good on top of everything. I have had nothing but good service with my dealings with Overstock.com. I have already recommended the pillows and website to several people and will continue to do so. Thanks for providing the good products and service at great prices. Keep up the good work.

I am never going back to regular pillows after using the gel-filled. These pillows are uber-comfortable. They don't get flat...just always comfortably plush. I would recommend these to anyone. Great value!

My husband is a back sleeper and finds these pillows soft yet firm at the same time. I am a side sleeper who sleeps with my arm under my head and find that when I try to use this pillow it makes it too high for my neck, and can not sleep comfortably. I have tried to change positions but due to a shoulder injury I find that is the best position for me. These are great pillows, fill out the pillow cases nicely but would not recommend if you are a side sleeper that is used to a pillow with a lot less fluff! Overstock is wonderful and shipping time was extremely fast and even though these are not comfortable for my sleeping habits I would buy them again for my other beds!
i sleep on my back so the pillow doesn't work for me, if you are used to memory foam pillow it is not for you. i guess my head is just too damn heavy and the pillow doesn't have any substance that can hold my head from the bed whenever i lay on the pillow. It is almost like lying on the bed without pillow except having some fluff on both side of your cheeks. my husband sleeps on his belly, he said it is all right for him. i didn't return it because of the price, the pillows look on king bed.
