This is a GREAT memory foam mattress. Worth the extra cash to get the three inch thick product. We also recently purchased a one and half inch of the same brand and the comfort difference is considerable. The only downside was temporary but potent. There is, indeed, a strong smell on this baby that lasted longer then the two days the company tells you to expect. We left ours unfolded for several days and there was still 'the smell' for about four night after we put it on the bed. It's ten days later and the smells all gone and we're sinking into heaven at night.
