When I opened this, I was disappointed that it was the egg-crate style foam. In general I feel like that looks cheap (dorm-room style). Unless I missed it (always a possibility) neither the description nor the picture made it seem like that type of foam. That being said, I will admit that once I got it on the bed and laid down on it, I was impressed. I bought this for a spare room that has a very firm mattress. Two guests have slept on it and said it was comfortable.
