This bed is fantastic and an incredible value. I was hesitant to buy it sight unseen because the price was so low compared with other similar beds I had priced locally, but this bed is better than I anticipated. Also, being able to use regular king-size sheets adds to the value and having only a few inches of water make it perfect for upstairs bedrooms. The step-by-step instructions make the setup quick and simple - just make sure you follow the instructions, even though they may be counter-intuitive.
ATTENTION - I'm not a complainer, in fact this is my first review. DO NOT BUY this unless you like the old 1960's full wave motion. The description says semi-waveless, but that is just not true. The darn thing never stops, it even moves from your breathing. For one person you may like it, but for two it never stops moving, I mean like waves back and forth. I called the United States Watermattress Co., the maker of the bed, and they said this was a low end mattress (the softside bed itself is fine). They are nice folks and I ordered the 90% 6 layer semi-waveless mattress, but it cost me another $360, so you can see your gonna get what you pay for. Just wanted to warn folks about this. Spend a little more $ and research the firmness before buying. We were totally unhappy with this purchase.

Experts say the least amount of material between you and the water is the best. While this mattress still has one layer of baffle to control the waves, it provides perfect support. It was easy to construct, directions are clear and the result was terrific.

The item did not ship for about two weeks after ordering, even though there was no notification of item being back ordered. Then because it was bulky, it took even longer for the delivery.

we were very happy with the waterbed. We've looked at several and this was the best value for the $. others were doubledwhat we paid and this was shipped quickly, with in a week it arrived and all boxed and crated so it arrived w/o any scratches.
