I have had these pillows for over a year and a half and I love'em. They're only now getting the point where I'm starting to consider buying a new set of the same pillows, so they hold up pretty well, particularly for the incredibly cheap price. They're quite soft, so if you like a firm pillow, they're not for you, but they're really comfortable and perfect for me. They're smooth and quiet in their cushioning and don't have the sort of ocd-bothering tactile feelings that many pillows have. If I want extra support to watch tv or something I sometimes stack'em or fold'em over as they're quite pliable. They are soft to the point that I lie with my face on the edge of them because if you lie face-down and to the side as I do, they do sink enough to obstruct your breathing. They're great for packing the 2nd one up against your back or neck or something as they conform to your shape well. All in all, I highly recommend if you enjoy a soft pillow.
