Was nervous to purchase this item at first because of the reviews by people who owned the product longer than 1-2 years.The good reviews were all from new users. All I have to say is so far so good...I have back and neck issues and this mattress really sincerely helps! This mattress is exactly as pictured, I allowed it 1 full day to retain it's shape after unpacking, and it feels so good. The quality is the same a mattress that costs double. The delivery was very fast! You have to purchase the memory foam according to your usage, environment and level of maintenance. I travel back and forth from one town to another for business, and some days, I am not actually sleeping on my bed. When I go back and forth from a firmer mattress to this one, I feel sore after sleeping on this one, I don't know why? The mattress is BEST the second day after my return and not the first?? AFTER THAT, it is like sleeping on a cloud that cradles you. With regular daily usage, the mattress is amazing A couple things to consider with a memory foam mattress that I learned from family members and friends who own them: * MEMORY FOAM can be HIGH MAINTENANCE, but well worth the investment * How high does the mattress sit against your bed frame, headboard, etc. * memory foam mattresses are better on a flat, hard surface for the best support. Box springs are ok, Bunkie boards are better, and a thick Plywood cut to the size of the bed and covered is the best apparently(advice from my brother who has a much higher end mattress than this one)...However, If you are considering one in the price range over $1000 like my folks invested in (over this one)--then you don't have to do squat!! My brother actually stumbled on this theory after purchasing another competitors memory foam that started to lose its comfort after only 1 year. His wife insisted on purchasing another mattress. While they waited for the other one to arrive, they set their memory foam on their hardwood floor in a guest room and slept on it on the floor. They were shocked at how comfortable it was and are emphatically against box springs for memory foam now. The new mattress is now in the guest room. * You must allow the memory foam to "BREATHE" so that you can maintain it's resilience (for med end and lower end- it makes no difference). You do not want the mattress to actually "memorize" your body contours or it won't support the body as well as when you first purchased the mattress. I remove the covers, unzip the mattress cover and open the windows to allow the mattress to truly aerate while I do laundry. * Moisture/humidity/sweat is memory foams worst enemy. If you live somewhere humid, if your husband is sweaty or his gums spring a leak when he sleeps, if the master bed is close to the bathroom and you love steamy showers INVEST in a moisture proof cover. This comes from family and friends with at least 7 years of memory foam mattress usage experience. Hope this helps someone.
