I bought this mattress set for my guest bedroom after spending a lot of time shopping around for a mattress set that was both good quality but inexpensive. It's apparently relatively difficult to find a new mattress set (mattress AND boxspring) that is comfortable and of good quality for under $$$, but eventually I saw this one online and decided to try it. When the mattress and boxspring arrived, I noticed that the mattress was very light. At first I was worried, because the mattress was easy to push off of the box spring due to this light weight. However, my concern went away when I tried out the mattress. It has a nice plush pillow top, but is firm enough underneath so that you don't sink down far below the plush part. It is very comfortable. I've had 3 couples visit and use this bed so far (one couple in their 60s, the others in their late 20s or early 30s), and every one of them said that the bed was comfortable. One important thing to know is that the mattress is one-sided. The bottom is a flat surface made of woven fibers, and cannot be used to sleep on. This is probably what keeps the cost of the mattress down, since the top of the mattress appears to be of good quality. Another random thing is that the mattress set made my guest bedroom smell sweet, kind of like maple syrup, for a few weeks. I don't know why it smelled like this, but the smell went away after the set aired out for long enough.
