For the price range, I recommend trying a mattress with a thicker 'topper' foam. The mattress comes rolled up, and is actually very easy to maneuver and roll on to the bed frame. I have had a Tempurpedic for 4 years now, and am so very in love with the quality of the Tempurpedic, but was purchasing this as a guest bed. I realize it is not fair to compare to a higher quality piece, but naturally, I at least have to compare the level of comfort to set the standard: 1) WHAT COVER? The description says it comes with a cover; mine definitely did not arrive covered in anything but the plastic for shipping. To Be Continued with Overstock... 2) COMFORT: The mattress feels great to lounge on, watch a movie, etc. Having slept on it for the first night, I woke up with back pain and shoulder aches, suddenly searching for a yoga workout to help realign my muscles to move normally once again. Granted I have had the bed only 4 days, so maybe it will get softer, but I have read that the top foam layer makes all the difference in quality of these types of mattresses, so would have possibly spent $50 extra to get an 11 inch thick foam mattress with a thicker top layer. 3) ODOR: There is an odor after 4 days, which I am hoping will continue to dissipate. 4) OVERALL: My guess is that this mattress is no different than other brands in the 8-inch, inexpensive foam bed category. However, I truly would not recommend to a friend. (I promise I don't work for Tempurpedic, but they run deals constantly, such as no interest for 4 years, which equates to a $45/ month payment for 4 years with no interest.) If you are purchasing this bed as someone hoping for a better night's sleep than a regular mattress, or with hope that it will compare to a higher-end foam mattress, it would be best to consider a Serta or Tempurpedic or another well-known brand where you can try it in the store first.)
