We ordered this on December 17 and were first told delivery was expected by January 2. I checked the item's tracking # on December 24 and found out it was to be delivered that day. Pretty quick for that time of year. The UPS guy showed up and had the bundle over his shoulder. I figured that meant I should have no problem getting it in the house so I had him leave it at the end of the driveway. Nope. I couldn't pick it up. Not so much the weight, but the bulk. It was the length of a mattress but 2 feet or more in diameter. I ended up using my hand truck to get it to the front door and then dragged it to the bedroom. It came in a nice nylon bag. At first we went through the trouble of trying to untie the knot, then gave up when we realized we couldn't likely use a bag that large for anything. We ended up cutting the bag open. Then the wife did a skillful cutting job to remove the plastic binder wrap without cutting the mattress. After the binding was cut loose the mattress popped open and swelled to full size within minutes. We lay it over our old mattress to let it grow and air out. We didn't smell any odors as others have, at first. After I read some more reviews I mentioned it to the wife and she could, but she didn't find it as strong or objectionable as some have. Instructions said to let the mattress air out for 72 hours if for no other reason than let the odors dissipate. The wife had her heart set on sleeping on it, though, so we just let it air out for a few hours until just before dark. Then she put sheets and blankets on it and she couldn't smell the odors. I probably slept more soundly than I did on our old mattress, but didn't feel all that much different the next morning than normal. It was more comfortable, though. The wife woke up and said she liked it so much she didn't want to get out of bed. Overall, it seems like a great mattress at a killer price. My only worry is how long it remains a great mattress. For that, only time will tell.
