I think these pillows are great, and my fiancee likes his too. They are pretty much exactly what we expected, as described here. You have to get use to sleeping on a pillow that is not super soft and fluffy, but the benefits will get you over that quickly in my opinion. I don't wake up with neck and shoulder pain like I use to and I attribute it to our new bed and these new pillows. They are very supportive and cool, you can feel the air come through the holes in the pillow when you move. So if you can do without having super soft and fluffy and want great support for no pain then these pillows are for you.
