I have been looking at Temperpedic mattresses for over a year and they are wonderful. That being said, I just could not bring myself to pay $2000 for one. I decided to take a chance on this mattress based on other customer reviews. I've been sleeping on it for 1 week and I am thrilled with it. Bed time is now my favorite time of the day. I chose the firm option and would compare it closely to the original Temperpedic OriginalBed. Trust me, I've done my homework, benefit from my research. ORDER THIS MATTRESS.
