These pillows are softer than was expected. When I think of gel I think of a slightly firm material that conforms to your body; instead I got some pretty soft pillows. Even though I didn't get what I expected, I am very satisfied. I sink into the center of the pillow while having enough support around my neck and head. They always retain their shape and stay cool.
I've always loved down pillows, but they seem to get flat very quickly, and flat is not a comfortable sleep position. I thought I'd give these a try, because the price was right and Overstock has a great return policy. I will not be returning them. They are the right size (standard pillow) and they are as comfortable as down but they don't flatten easily. There was no smell about them, and they puff back up easily. I recommend these to down lovers and to foam lovers looking for a more comfortable night's sleep. I LOVE these pillows! Thank you, Overstock!
I really like this pillow: I'm a side and stomach sleeper and the pillow molds as I need it to throughout the night. It has a deep downy feel to it. My husband finds it more like an average pillow (mostly sleeps on his back, sometimes on his side), and to him it gets warm, much like a standard pillow.
I received these pillows today, opened box, and will send back tomorrow. NOT WORTH THE MONEY. I know they were not the top pillow, but Walmart has a better pillow for $5.

I am in a never-ending quest to find pillows that are firm and retain their shape yet be soft enough to actually sleep comfortably on. I was excited to hear about gel pillows and quickly ordered this pair. I don't have anything really positive or negative to share, they are just extremely average. They do seem to be retaining their shape after a month of use, but are not any more supportive than any other pillow I've tried. For the price they are decent pillows, just don't expect it to be your miracle solution!

I was a bit concerned about purchasing pillows sight-unseen but I had heard good things about "gel" pillows. I really wasn't sure what to expect. These pillows were soft yet supportive and just what I was looking for. I was almost picturing some kind of strange, squishy, heavy, jelly filled pillow but these were light and (just the right amount of) fluffy. I bought them as guest pillows and I am using them myself on my own bed!
I was skeptical about buying pillows online, but I haven't had much good luck shopping for them in the store, so why not??!! When shopping for pillows, I squish them and squeeze them and try to lay my head on them in the plastic cover with my hand pretending to be the bed. I pick the pillows I like, and within a couple of weeks they turn to lumpy sacks of fluffballs. I am trying to stay away from feathers and down due to asthma, but it's all I've ever used until recently so I have no idea how to shop for a good pillow. Tada! Between dogs trying to take over my bed, my husband and I wrestling over the new pillows, sleep drool...etc, these pillows are holding up fantastically and are SUPER comfortable...and at a great price, to boot. I highly recommend them. :)
We had used "gel" pillows at a relative's home in Calif. and had looked all over our area for them. When I found them online at Overstocked.com, I quickly ordered them. I was ordering another item when I happen to see that they were available. They are very comfortable and seem to cradle your head and fit my sleeping pattern, as I sleep mostly on my side.. I can "scrunch" it to fit exactly how I want it. The pillows don't seem to get "hard" spots that so many other pillows get. My relative said that she had her pillows for several years and they are still in great condition. I told my sister about them in Florida. She said that she found some back there and she likes them also. My nephew in California also uses them. They aren't easy to find in the department stores, so it was good to find them at Overstock.com.
