My wife and I sampled several different mattress manufacturers and loved the Temper-pedic, however, we did not like the price! After much debate we decided to order the comfort dreams mattress after the salesman at a local mattress store told us that his $1000 mattress was not as good as the specs provided for the Comfort Dreams. We ordered the medium firmness and it is a little firm, but very comfortable. My lower back has not been sore when waking up like it was in our old spring mattress and we sleep sound! Overall, a great value!
