This bed is one of the BEST things I have ever purchased - and what a deal at that! It is very very comfortable to the point I just want to stay in bed all day! THe only issue I can see is that I now have trouble getting up it is so comfy! As far as the smell - that disapearred in about three days. The bed is 100 pounds - you will need a strong person to lift it. It comes in a large roll and UPS would not leave it in my foyer - so depending if you have someone home to accept delivery that might be an issue. Otherwise though this bed is amazing and oversize queen sheets fit perfect. I shopped A LOT before buying this bed and I very happy with my choice and the service of overstock.
