I bought this mattress for the convenience of having it delivered to a new apartment and being able to move and set it up myself, as well as for the lower cost. Having slept on a traditional coil spring mattress for many years, I was somewhat hesitant about making a non-returnable purchase, but I could not be more pleased. I disagree with any claims of the mattress being too firm - I am a side sleeper and find it has a perfect amount of "give." I am sleeping on the mattress in a non-AC room in humid NJ in August and have yet to experience a hot spot, which some have mentioned. For the price, this is an incredible value and I would definitely purchase again, as well as recommend to any family member or friend.
