Figuring out the takeaways from customers can be a great eye-opener for shoppers. Sadly, customers don't always feel comfortable with these mattresses. Some are happy with the feel and comfort of their mattress, but others complain about how it feels for them. If you are pondering buying one, take a look below for more specifics.
Customers report that these mattresses don't offer the kind of lasting support that some of the other brands may. Though most find these mattresses comfortable initally, if you have wide hips and shoulders, review the mattress specifications before purchasing.
For those that are looking for quality and long-life edge support, some describe these mattresses has having declining edge support.
Unfortunately, customers don't always love the durability of these mattresses. While some folks had good experiences with the performance, others describe having issues faster than average.

Customer reviews is a great way to target the right mattress for you. These mattresses are reviewed highly by sleepers, but there were a few folks that complained. The below has more information about the feel of the mattress and a selection of customer reviews -- study more to see if one of these works for your body!
All sleepers need a supportive mattress and especially back and stomach sleepers. Also, deeper support can be a make or break for side sleepers who need response but are at risk for back problems. These mattresses are above average when it comes to support. That said, some others didn't like the support so if you are heavier, make sure that your selection is right for you.
Most agree with the edge support of these mattresses. Some folks may experience some sagging when sitting or laying close to the edge.
Durable mattresses will last between 7 and 12 years based on the materials that are in the mattress. Mattresses with springs tend to last longer if they are well made than foam mattresses -- though this is not always the case. That being said, mattresses that don't put emphasis on durability will start breaking down much faster independent of materials used. These mattresses get mixed reviews from sleepers. Some have found comfort for the long term, but others have had complaints.
Half the vertebrae in my back have been compromised to some extent. I've had surgery on my low back and on my neck and I am in constant pain. I had memory foam mattress that worked well for about five years then it no longer worked. I would awaken in terrible pain so I decided to try the night air mattress. There was a short learning curve to find the correct setting for me, once I found it my pain was greatly reduced. I'm very satisfied with the mattress so far. The mattress was easy to assemble after watching the video on you tube.View More Reviews
Unfortunately this bed was not for us. Both my husband and I experienced serious back and neck pain from our trial of the boyd night air. No matter which setting we tried it was a terrible night sleep. The air chamber felt like sleeping on a bag and when you moved the air would shift around to a different location almost like a waterbed feeling. We had tried a sleep number in the store and in hindsight maybe we should have ordered an air bed with a lot more padding but we were so disappointed with our experience and in pain we weren't willing to risk another try. To the company's credit, they were amazing and tried their very best to please us. I hate it didn't work out for us because they were awesome to work with and honored their guarantee. The return was easy easy. The materials were quality made. I guess I would recommend if you are considering this bed I would suggest buying the six chamber with ample foam or padding.
My husband and I tried out all sorts of mattresses before finally settling on this one. After reading Consumer Reports we decided we didn't need a lot of extra padding (after all, you can easily add that if you want it) and bought this. He likes his sleep surface firm, I like mine soft so it really works. Great price on this especially compared to other companies.
I have been sleeping on blow up air mattress for about a year and it finally gave out. When I looked online for a new air mattress I started seeing air beds. I found out they are not the same thing and decided to use my tax refund and get a real bed. Some people might say because this bed is the cheapest it is no frills, but I think it is perfect. I set it up all by myself with no problems.
I fractured my lower back years ago and have always struggled to find a comfortable mattress. Finally tried this bed and it is amazing. I have been sleeping on it for over a year now and have no complaints. I adjust it depending on how my back is feeling and I finally able to wake up and get out of bed without pain or stiffness. I highly recommend this bed!
This is definitely a no frills bed. But if you want something that is adjustable and will not make your wallet fly away this is pretty good alternative. We bought this for our daughter who has a hard time finding something comfortable. Only 2 chambers but she has found it adequate for her needs.
Was expecting a normal box truck, they were sending a 53" semi (no Liftgat), Called Matt in cust. service ,he said it would be corrected. Sent a 40" truck with liftgate. Our drive is 250" long capable of handling UPS and FedEx trucks, and my 32" 5th wheel. Ended up unloading 143 lb. frame and fairly heavy mattress box myself(driver slid them to end of liftgate)I'm 74 yrs old and in good shape ,but it was a chore,and I fortunately had a trailer. As we unloaded boxes in centerlane of 3 lane rd. ,it began to rain. Got the boxes in the dry ,finally. (pretty mad by that time), so I called Matt again. He was very nice again, and made an adjustment which was acceptable. In retrospect, I don't think I would choose to go through this again.Bed seems to be working properly, thank goodness. I'm sure sending a large freight truck is cheaper than sending a box truck down my driveway, but it sure was a pain in the A__.
We like our bed but the padding was very thin so got a 1 inch memory foam topper and it helps but would definitely recommend getting a upgraded mattress and spend a little more. Shipping did take forever we actually bought a upgraded model but parts were backorder and would of had to wait a few months couldn't wait that long but wish we would of
For the price, it's pretty amazing. But it really is an okay, only last a handful of years bed. Padding is minimal and we needed to replace our pump and controls twice in order to get one fully working unit. Customer service is decent-- shipping is forever slow. We actually wanted to upgrade to another version, but the hassle of returns and shipping was not worth the effort.
I'm a sucker for the cloud looking mattresses so this one caught my eye immediately. My husband was concerned that it would be too plush and we would not notice the difference with the air. There seems to be just the right amount of memory foam to be really comfortable but not so much that you can't feel the changes in the air pressure. Control is easy to use and we both enjoy it. I compared this with your six chambers but I liked the cover on this one more so.
Boyd Gel Foam Mattress lasted 5 years with a 10 year warranty, ripped right down the middle under very normal conditions on a queen size. Company has very small window of reporting any issues, their warranty is very tight (1 month) and will not work with you at all. You would think after spending $1300.00 they would at least offer some kind of pro-rated amount to help you get into another of their mattresses. Like most long warranty's they are basically worth nothing with the fine print. It is no wonder companies like Saatva are growing and thriving.
He gets the firmness he wants and I get the softness i like. Plus the lumbar setting is really comfortable for my hips
I wanted an air bed so that I could adjust it, but I didnt want a bed that I sunk into. So many beds out there have so much foam and they don't even tell you what it is. This bed is perfect. Just the right amount of foam and it has this gel stuff in it that helps me stay a little cooler at night. Wish I found this sooner.
I purchased the Ultra 6655 6-Chamber Air Bed Queen my total experience with customer service, delivery, assembly and function has been excellent. The bed was easy to setup and the adjustments for my wife and I are fantastic. We both are really enjoying this bed. Thanks and keep up the good work.
the concept is great, and my husband's half of the bed currenty works and he loves it. I love the concept and am sure I will be satisfied once I get parts and defects worked out.
good quality, easy to assemble
I bought this bed to replace a 2 year old mattress that was giving me back pains. Within a week this bed made my back pains disappear. The only reason I didn't give a five star rating is i had two issues with the bed. When I first received the bed I received a faulty air pump and 3 months after I had an air bladder start to leak. These issues were resolved very quickly and easily. Customer service was excellent so it made up for the issues. I would recommend this bed to anyone looking for an air bed.
wasn't happy with the crinkling noises every time I moved. wound up putting a one inch memory foam pad on top of the bed and that helped. still trying to adjust the bed.
We ordered a Queen size. I liked the quality of it but, it is too firm for me at any setting. We added a memory foam topper which helps.
I purchased the Ultra 6655 6-Chamber Air Bed, Split King and Adjustable Base Power Base 3 - and have been using them for about three months now. I was able to "roll" the boxes upstairs myself, and assembly was easy. We each set our own firmness and left it on auto to keep that constant firmness number. It has been great and very comfortable. I chose this model because I didn't want a lot of padding on top, since I sleep hot. I have been very comfortable with the temperature. The edges of the bed are firm enough to sit comfortably while putting on shoes, etc. We don't use the adjustable base as much as I thought I would, though I do secretly raise my partner's head a couple of inches when he is snoring and it helps. I raise both the head and foot sections when I change the sheets since it makes it easier to change the fitted twinXL sheets, by raising one mattress above the other so I can easily reach around it. However, if I did it again I probably wouldn't bother to get the adjustable base and would have gotten a regular king. (Though I do use the adjustments occasionally as mentioned) I purchased new twinXL fitted sheets for each of the two sections, but I think I could have used my existing king fitted sheet because it has deep pockets so can tolerate one side being raised while the other lays flat. Overall, we are very happy and comfortable in this bed.
This was a big step up from our normal routine of buying a pillowtop coil mattress every half a decade or so. It's hard to imagine that we made the wrong choice here though. I sleep comfortably and the quality seems superb. It was an investment that Im happy with so far and have recommended it to a close friend. Getting in while they have their deals going on definitely helps too Im sure.
My husband and I spent the better half of the last week searching for an air bed. We quickly realized there was little choice available. We went to the sleep number store and laid on their top of the line i10 (I think it is). We really liked everything about it except for the price. After researching further, I stumbled across this site and I'm glad we did. When comparing features it was apparent that they had everythign that select comfort did but at a more attractive price (not that price is everything) but they also have more chambers of adjustabllity which is nice for really getting your whole body in line. In the end we got a really nice adjustable bed for a lot less money.
Ordering was simple, shipping was fast and the set up took no time at all. We went with the Split King set as an "early Christmas gift to ourselves" as she likes to call it.
making the wife happy is what its all about right? she's very particular about how she sleeps while i can pretty much sleep on anything but being able to pick for ourselves is nice. happy wife, happy life.
Ordered the 6680 on a recommendation from a friend. So far so good. I did have to call customer service to add an adjustable base on after my initial order but Matt was helpful and extremely pleasant to work with.
Really happy with this bed. I like my side firmer than my wife so we can both adjust to how we like it. My back always hurts so i like having the separate support under my back.
If you want to be comfortable when you sleep, and have your body feel great when you wake up, then get this bed. Seriously! After hard workouts, I like that I can adjust the support differently under my lower back, so I'm less sore the next day :)
My husband and I love this bed. My husband can make his side firmer underneath his lower back, and I can make mine a bit more soft. We've both been sleeping really well so far!
Great bed. Wife and I both sleep well
Finally, I now get a good night's sleep. For years, I have had bad back problems when I get up in the morning....but not anymore. This bed is the most comfortable bed I have ever had! It was a great choice.
Pump/remote failed within a year but I didn't get around to reporting until after 2 year. 50% warranty at point. That's ok but the replacement ($250) comes based on the original purchase date, thus essentially without any warranty. If it fails in a week - another $250.
Don't get me wrong, it is an okay mattress, but not the kind of mattress that I was really after. I got sold on their Octaspring tech, but in all it just makes weird bumbs in the mattress. I didn't feel as supported as I was before.View More Reviews
The Dormeo bed has a bounce to it that other beds don't. It's good for snuggling up with your SO if you know what I mean. :) Highly recommended.
I've had my new bed for a couple months and it already has some weird dips in it that weren't there at the beginning. I don't feel anything differently yet, but I expect that it may sag soon.
I just love this bed. It is really comfortable and curves to my body when I sleep, which is exactly what I was looking for! I might even buy one for my kids because I love it so much!
I knew I was taking a risk when I selected this mattress because it is new technology, but overall I really like the feel. It's unlike other beds that I've had.
Truly Great Mattress, so comfortable and supportive
I am very pleased with this mattress. It took some getting used to. Having slept on it for 3 months now, I can feel a difference in my back. The support it provides is excellent. It is unfortunate that I couldn't try the mattress before buying, but based on the description from Dormeo, I went for it. This mattress feels as good as other well known and more expensive memory foam mattresses. One negative is that there are no handles on the sides of the mattress to enable rotating it. So it is difficult to hold it to rotate. It comes rolled up, and then you open it and roll it out. But if I had any reason to return it, i don't believe i would ever be able to fit it down the stairs again. Fortunately that is not necessary for me, but worth considering before buying.
We brought this mattress after suffering problems with back pain with our previous mattress, this is a well built and quality matress and the Octaspring technology seems to work well. Only snag I have is that its starting to become soft in some areas after one week of use hence why I’ve given it 4 stars so far. I will review this again after 1 month.
Wonderful, firmness perfect, can lie on it all day, like I sometimes need to do without the usual backache from my old mattress. It is worth the money, and I look forward to going to bed every night now.
It's medium/firm so excellent for lying on back and good for side sleeping as well, I just prefer the Mistral as it's softer at the shoulder end due to the different zones
Very comfortable except at the edges. Bought it for my back problems. Getting a comfortable nights sleep but find that when sleeping over 8 hours, back hurts a little.
A very comfortable mattress, you'll sleep wonderfully on it. It can't get 5 stars though, mainly for one of the reasons you'll see on the reviews that told you how good the mattress is. It's very thin, which you don't notice when sleeping on it due to the foam they've used. The problem comes with bedding, mattress protectors and fitted sheets, even Dormeo's own are for thicker mattresses. You'll constantly find yourself rolling over on big clumps of excess sheet, your protector will move around a lot. It's a shame because the mattress is great, if only Dormeo would make a protector and sheet for this mattress specifically...as this is the only decent mattress on the market that is this thin.
If I am honest, the mattress is not a comfortable as I imagined it would be. Although, for the price I am not complaining as it is still a good mattress. I think it may just be a bit harder that I thought it was going to be. I still seem to end up in the middle of the bed for some reason?
This mattress is the best. It comes vacuum packed and needs to be unrolled and left for several hours so that it reaches its maximum capacity. Bought for rugby player who finds that it is the best mattress he has had. His body is perfectly supported from top to toe and he has a very relaxed deep sleep. Would recommend this mattress to anyone who suffers from aches and pains.
I am delighted with the mattress it is comfortable and seems to be helping to alleviate some of the pain I experience due to a long-term condition. Still getting used to the pillow but it was free so I am not complaining - its firmer than my previous pillows so I am adjusting to it over time. I would certainly recommend the mattress, I am delighted with it.
It's really comfy and I'm very happy with it. It's not too hot, as with some thicker memory foam mattresses. It took about 8 weeks for the new chemical smell to disperse though. Given the chance it would be better to air it for as long as possible before using. I gave it two weeks, but longer would have been better.
This was O.K. However my Dunlop was just the same, so no better or worse. The pillow was dredful. Hard, couldn't get it to shape my neck or head. I think these are pilowas they can not sell.
High quality, very comfy mattress - pleased with purchase. A bit thinner than I imagined it would be, but it is the size stated, so it was me imagining it to be higher that was the problem.
We thought we would sleep a lot better than we use to. Perhaps we expected too much.
Very comfortable, no sign of the back problems which plagued me for years
Although this mattress is a lot 'thinner' than others I have had - so my wooden frame is almost as high as the mattress, it is excellent - exactly as it says. And whilst I still don't sleep as much as I should do, it has certainly made a difference. Definitely recommend !
I bought this mattress for my Son, he has joint problems and is a big lad about 15 stone, he loves the mattress,He was skeptical to start with as he helped pay for it. he says he has never slept so well
Absolutely love it ,had a memory foam mattress before this one which was excellent ,so after lots of research decided upon this after reading many positive reviews .Highly recommended .
The mattress is very comfortable, good depth and feels great. As I already had a memory foam mattress that I purchased many years ago at a much greater price i
Thought my old mattress & topper could not be beaten but it has. So comfortable, sleep came easy & following day just feel rested & ready for the day ahead.
It does the job. I grew up in foam mattresses and at a fraction of the price of others it's a good deal. The smell took a long time to fade though
Delighted with my new mattress. I never realised what a good night's sleep was until I bought this mattress. So comfortable
So much cheaper than alternatives of same quality. Love the cooling layer which offers a little give to the firm memory foam
Very comfortable - best I've had! A bit too warm in hot weather, but the comfort makes up for that.
I was very happy with the size fit on to my bed frame very well. I would recommend this to others.
Great product, easy transaction and super quick delivery. I'd certainly order in line again.
Superb value for the money! Really happy with this Memory Plus mattress. Nice and comfy!
Fantastic best sleep as I'm disabled I've never slept so good now sleep night through
comfortable supportive mattress - good for relieving aches and pains after a long day
I find I am sleeping a lot better without a bad neck and back in morning
Very comfy mattress, great nights sleep.best thing I have ever brought.
Excellent product, excellent quality very comfortable nights sleep.
Awful products and terrible customer service
i got the classic not as good as they claim thinner than i thought fitting a double sheet on it its very loose so not got much to cover so rucks up when you sleep on it so you sweat anyway very overated to the adverts they put on tv
WARNING TO ALL FUTURE POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS... I bought a mattress from this company, it arrived and was not fit for purpose -low quality, not as advertised. Upon returning the mattress a charge was deducted from the refunded amount. It was previously agreed over the phone to resolve this issue that it would be collected indicating I would be refunded in full. After challenging them about why they don't want to abide by consumer law they say it's in their fine print... So my advice after appalling customer service call is on their FAQ page it states "if you are not completely satisfied it can be returned for a full refund" - this is not true!
