After a very long search for a new king-sized mattress, a finally chose the Spinal Response Aloe Gel Memory Foam 13-inch Pillow-Top mattress. The decision was made with many factors in mind and after looking at many web-sites. While I was very impressed with the responses and ratings from other O.co customers and definitely took their input to heart, I also searched the web and read about this mattress and compared it to similar memory foam mattresses. Without a doubt, I found that Overstock.com was selling this matress for the best price! And, the reviews regarding aloe gel memory foam told me what to look for and this Spinal Response mattress had the necessary inner makings for a comfortable and supportive mattress. After putting all this information together, I chose this mattress over another (also on Overstock) and hoped that it was all that I had read about from other consumers as well as what I had learned after researching on the web. After the very small carton (!) was delivered in very short time, (keep in mind that the mattress weighs over 100 lbs and if you are taking it up stairs, you will need assistance!), we took it up to the bedroom. Having read another person's review about opening the mattress on a boxspring due to the weight of the mattress, we prepared everything first. After uncoiling the mattress, (and it was upside-down and had to be flipped!), it VERY quickly expanded to the king-size. Within no more than 5 minutes, the mattress was in it's full size and there was NO smell that I had read about on other reviews. I decided to let it "air-out" for 6 hours anyway before making the bed that evening...just in case... And, that evening, I had the BEST sleep I have had in over a year. I have spinal issues as well as 4 herniated disks in my back and have not been able to sleep for more than 2-3 hours at a time. That night, I slept for 6 hours straight. Since getting this mattress, I have continued to have wonderful nights' sleep and I entirely will endorse this mattress, at this point in time, without hesitation...keeping in mind that I recently ordered it and cannot say how it will last or how it will stand up over time. But, as of now, I am entirely happy with my purchase! Thanks again Overstock...you have a loyal customer!
Bought this mattress about two months ago. Wanted to wait to write a review to see how we slept on it. I can tell you that ever since we got this, I do not want to get out of bed in the morning and look forward to crawling into bed every night! Some of the best sleep I have had.
Great value. Excellent quality. My husband and I are sleeping better than we have in years. My old mattress hurt my back, this mattress eliminates pressure. I wake up without pain and feel very rested. Wish we would have done this much sooner!
We have been sleeping on the mattress for about 3 weeks and it is wonderful. The gel keeps it from getting too hot. I have back problems which have improved since I started sleeping on this mattress. I also sleep deeper than I have in years, no waking up constantly because I am so comfortable. This mattress is hundreds of dollars cheaper than some we researched but the quality is extremely high. It arrived quickly and we slept on it the same day we rec'd it. There was a slight chemical smell the first day but that quickly went away. In addition to helping with my pain, I have noticed that my allergies have subsided. This was a great find. I would not hesitate if you are looking to buy a good night's sleep.
First of all I couldnt be happier with the bed; its exactly what we hoped it would be. My wife has back problems and said after a couple of days her back didnt hurt in the morning like it did before. I would buy this bed again without hesitation. I have to admit I was extremely apprehensive when I arrived home after FedEx had left it by our front door; the box looked like it had gone through a war. It was ripped in multiple places with the packing tape being the only thing holding it together and had holes torn in it but the bed itself was protected by a heavy plastic wrap that was ok so all was well. The bed is heavy so try to have some help available when you set it up. The only thing I wish they had done differently is the way it was rolled and compressed there was no way unroll it where the top of the mattress was up so the first thing you have to do (and quickly because it is inflating) is flip the mattress, this is where having help really will come in handy. All in all its been a great purchase.

My husband and I had been sleeping in a double bed, cheap mattress for a long time, and when we decided to get a King Size Mattress, we knew it would be more expensive so we were hesitant to try something this inexpensive for such a great quality. Thought for sure it had to be a hoax, but we were willing to try anything other than the mattress we were sleeping on. We are not small people and our sleep habits were suffering. Anything had to be better than what we were on. When the mattress arrived smashed in a box, we were scared that our worst nightmare had come true. But when we opened it up, and the mattress expanded our hopes increased and that night, when we went to sleep, it was amazing. The comfort of this mattress is beyond what we could have expected for the amazing price! We took a shot in the dark and fortunately hit the target dead center and LOVE this mattress.

I was so excited to get this mattress but I am sadly not loving it. We have had it for 2 weeks now and it may just be a memory foam issue for me. Our last mattress was memory foam with a pillow top that was not memory foam. After 10 great years on it it developed permanent dips where we slept. The new mattress gives way too much when you are sleeping on it and it feels like we're back in our old dips even though it bounces back during the day. Also, the pillow top being memory foam seems like the wrong way to go. If you toss and turn a lot at night, it feels like the bed is constantly readjusting to you. I ended up ordering a foam topper for the bed and it is somewhat better but I wouldn't order the mattress again. I will likely go with a traditional mattress next time and add a memory foam and regular foam layer on my own to customize the feel. I gave it an average rating as I think this is just the deal with the memory foam mattresses today. It really seems like a firmer middle layer would make more sense

My wife has had multiple back problems and we needed a new mattress. This one had great reviews and we have had good luck with similar products from overstock before. The packaging was very beat up and I thought for sure the mattress would be damaged when it arrived. It was in good condition when we opened the box. The bed works great. My wife is getting a good nights sleep for a change and I like it. Great price for a good mattress.

Purchased this mattress about a month and half ago and I was very skeptic of the brand as I had never heard of Christopher Knight before. I researched online for anything I could find and decided to give it a try. Mattress is exactly how is described above. Great quality and comfort. With my last mattress I always would wake up with lower back pain. With the new one, no more pain and a solid night of sleep. And it does not get hot as other memory foam mattresses as the aloe gel beads work perfectly. Worth every penny and I will be a customer for life.
We had never owned a memory foam mattress - but after visiting several mattress stores to try both traditional spring and memory foam - ultimately decided it was what we wanted. After making that determination, we then set out to find the perfect memory foam. After trying every mattress in nearly every store, we decided that not just any memory foam would do, but it needed to be a minimum of 12" thick and have a pillow top. After finding one that we LOVED (but didn't love the price), I went online and ran a search for the same type of mattress. Voila! Up popped this mattress. My husband was hesitant, but it was such a great deal - that I pulled the trigger and purchased it. Don't panic when it arrives tightly packaged. We let ours 'inflate' for a full 48 hours (not necessary to do that long). We also placed a sheet of maple wood (like the size of plywood) under the mattress and on top of the box springs to give it proper support (too many people have said they have ruined their memory foams with inadequate support - so why risk it?). What can I say? We LOVE this mattress. It has been all that they promised. My husband weighs about 230, and I weigh about 115. The firmness was perfect for him, but I wanted a little cushier top, so I did purchase a thin memory foam layer to put on top for me - and it made it perfect. This mattress is actually a full inch thicker (and more comfortable) than the ones that we tried at the mattress store. The support of the mattress itself is spot ON for both my husband and myself. We used to wake up every morning with back aches (with our old spring mattress) - but not once since we purchased this one. The support is incredible. We also don't toss and turn all night trying to get comfortable. Not to mention, neither of us can feel the other one get in and out of bed. Our teenage daughter BEGS to sleep in our room now - so I guess I need to buy one for her too. If you are hesitating - don't! You won't regret it. I wish I had room to store another King size - because I am afraid that (whenever) this eventually wears out - I won't be able to find another to replace it. We truly cannot remember a better nights sleep. Thank you for an exceptional quality mattress at an unbelievable price. We couldn't be happier!
I was a little hesitant in making this purchase. The mattress arrived with the box all beaten up and ripped. I was surprised there was no damage to the mattress. The mattress is firm yet very comfortable. There was no odor from the mattress. Have not had any back aches since sleeping on it.
My husband and I could not be happier with our purchase. No more back pain, no more tossing and turning to get comfortable! It is still fairly firm despite the pillowtop title. My 200lb husband sinks into it much more than I do, but we have only had it for a week and I have read that they break in after time. Regardless of my preference for a super soft mattress, my body seems to love this one based upon how my sleep has improved thus far. The box was fairly damaged upon delivery, but the mattress was still in excellent condition and it expanded very quickly. We slept on it after about 3 hours after it was opened. No strong smells. Such a relief to go to bed knowing I will get good rest!
I think I still prefer the feel of the traditional mattress, but my wife really had a strong preference for gel or memory foam, so we went with this. It is very comfortable, nothing wrong with it. And I can say absolutely NO issues with overheating at all. It just feels a tad too solid and firm for me. It doesn't give you that embracing feeling a soft spring mattress can give, but then that's probably a good thing to many people. And it's certainly not "hard" or "cheap" feeling at all. It does add softness with the pillow top, maybe just not quite as much as my tastes would have liked. Overall though, a good mattress.
