It's pretty springy, but seems like it will provide good, solid, comfy sleep in our guest room. It's definately high with the large box underneath. I got it for a day bed that technically didn't need a box, but I felt it would be just that much more supported when my mom comes to stay (who needs a strong, supportive bed). It ended up being too high for the daybed. Fortunately I moved the box to the trundle for storage. Shipping/Delivery was fast, easy, and great. Love me some Overstock!
