After being moved and in and out of storage over a few years, our box spring set seems to have lost it's support and bounce. I shopped and found this set. Decided I could always send it back if need be. When it arrived, the box was most deceptive. The box springs are folded end to end. So the box is far shorter than you'd anticipate.These units are HEAVY. It took two of us to get them out of the box, unfolded, and placed on the bed frame. They really are made of steel. There is a zip-over cover that makes them look like a conventional box spring, but inside it's solid steel girders connected to each other, forming a very solid and durable box spring. After sleeping on it for a month, I can tell you the support is good enough that we feel it's extended the life of our mattress by a few years, at least. After owning this, I won't go back to conventional wooden box springs. Yes, these are "that much better"!! Try them and you'll find as we did... this one's a keeper!
I had a Cal-King size water-bed for many years. Could never find a comfortable mattress to replace it. When a fire forced me to replace it, I decided to try a memory foam type. I am so glad I chose this one! It came in a big bag like a duffle bag. I took it out of it's packaging by myself, and it very quickly became the 12" Queen mattress as advertised. The packaging was minimal with only 2 large pieces of plastic to get rid of. It did have a very low oder that was quickly gone. I laid down to try it out and fell asleep. I bought the soft option and have found it has the right amount of support without having to hassel with a box-spring. It fit onto a queen size platform set I already had with no problems. When my Boxer jumps up on the bed it doesn't doesn't transfer any motion to me. I would buy this mattress again if I need another one. Very easy and very comfortable!
My husband and I disagree on comfort level for a mattress but this one we had no issues. I prefer soft and him firmer. We got the medium and it's perfect. I have back and restless leg issues which seem to be better with this new bed. He has shoulder and neck issues that are not presenting with this bed. I also like that I don't feel him moving around. My only concern is sagging which I am told is common with these after a few years. I haven't seen anyone update on this yet. This is a huge mattress and probably would have been better with the 12 inch memory foam. I now have a high bed to climb into with box spring which you need.
