When I was reading through the reviews prior to purchasing the mattress, I wished there were more comparissons to the tempurpedic. Specifically, I wanted to know if it could pass for one. It is notably different. I love this mattress and for its price, it can't be beat. I've had the mattress for a month, and I haven't slept so well since spending a night on a friend's tempurpedic years ago. The mattress is, however, MUCH firmer than a tempurpedic. I would recommend it to all except those who have their heart set on a soft mattress.
