I purchased this bed and received it within two weeks. It weighs around 40 lbs and the mailman did call and delivered it to my door, which was nice. I opened the mattress and it immediately puffed up to full size. All corners, the body, etc. all came to the same height. Mine did expand to the full 10 inches and it did NOT have any weird odors. The cover is nice and typical of that of any other tempupedic. I put mine on top of my old box spring and it is much longer (about 5 inches) than the base and it is wider a couple inches too. I have sheets from my Queen size double sided pillow top that fit nice. The cover on the bed makes it very warm to sleep on and without central air, I think I'd die. In the winter I'm sure it will be nice. My bed was firm the first day and I actually wished it would have stayed as firm. I am 27 years old and by no means am out of shape, but my boyfriend and I laugh that it's hard to get in and out of as you do sink in with use. I have had my bed for about a month now and you can sink in more in areas that are used frequently and the areas that aren't are still firm. I do sleep well on the bed, but I can't say it's my best night sleep ever. I had purchased this bed since a friend of mine parents have a name brand tempurpedic and I slept on it for a night and that was AWESOME sleep. I will say you get what you pay for. The quality is nice, it is comfy, but if you are overweight or have bone/muscle issues, I would not recommend this bed to you. If you plan on moving the mattress once you open it up, please let me tell you it is hard to move as there are no handles, grips, whatever like on a standard mattress so you must use a lot of muscle and lifting. I do sleep on the bed for now, but I plan on putting my old mattress back on the box spring and putting this bed in one of my guest rooms on a platform frame. Hope this review helped you! If it helps you any, I am 5ft 9 inches tall and I must say that my feet do not hang off the bed and that is sooooo nice! My boyfriend is 6ft 3inches and he too said that is a nice bonus!
