I ordered this mattress the week before christmas. I chose the free delivery option as I was not in a hurry for the mattress to arrive, and figured with the holidays it might take a while. OH NO IT DIDN'T! It showed up 2 days before the scheduled delivery date. That was a nice surprise. I read the reviews on this and other similar mattresses and fully expected to encounter some of the common things like the smell and the mattress opening up mis-shapen. It was funny, when we cut the tape that was holding it rolled up like a burrito, it popped out in a perfect rectangle! it did not seem to need to expand or re-shape itself, but regardless, we set it up on the bed and left it, without sheets, to expand for 24 hours. Yes, the room did have a funky, synthetic, rubbery smell for about 3-4 days, but it was very mild. We left the ceiling fan running on high and I had an air freshener in there to help minimize the scent. After 2 days, I dressed the bed and we slept on it. It is WONDERFUL! My husband has bad knees and sometimes when he turns in bed they pop out of socket. Since we got this mattress, he hasn't experienced that anymore. He is 250lbs and I am 150, so we are not small people, but I have to say, I LOVE that neither of us feel each other move, roll over, or get in & out of bed! we are sleeping like babies on it! I can't believe such a great product came with such a low price! FYI ... since we were intending on placing this mattress on top of our existing (traditional) box spring, we bought a "buckie board" at a local furniture store ($70) to lay between the mattress and box spring. Supposedly it gives better support to the mattress and helps it last longer. We'll see! We plan on keeping this mattress for a good, long time!!!
