Making sense of customer reviews can be a powerful tool for shoppers. Sleepers, regrettably, don't always repond positively towards these mattresses. Some have comfortable experiences, but others have issues. There are more details below to study if you are considering buying.
In terms of supportiveness, these mattresses get mixed reviews. Some have described them as supportive and report being comfortable, but others weren't able to get comfortable. If you are larger than average, you may want to do some added digging into reviews to make sure you find the right pick for you.
Edge support is an essential attribute for those that like to sit on the side of the mattress. Some customers may find that the edge support is not as capable as they would hope.
Customers find that durability is one of the most important attributes to finding a mattress. We all want it to be just as comfortable at the beginning as it is a decade later. However, sadly these mattresses are not rated very well by sleepers on longevity and some have experienced issues after only a short time. If you are thinking about using this mattress nightly, read the reviews to make sure that it will match your body type before buying.
By using customer reviews, you can create a better list of potential mattresses to target. These mattresses are rated very well by customers, but some had disagreements. The below has more information on the mattress and a selection of reviews -- study on!
Mattress support is the secret for keeping things comfy at night and in the morning. These mattresses are above average in supportiveness across all sleepers. This is important if you are suffering from lack of support currently. Most customers describe these mattresses as providing good support in the short term.
Edge support is how much supportiveness there is along the edges of the mattress versus the middle section. These mattresses are well rated on their edge support, but some folks may notice more sinking along the side of the mattress.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
The bowling ball and density tests are good measures of mattress firmness. It is also a great test to see if there is evenness in support or if there are peaks and valleys. Overall, these mattresses will provide an even surface to sleep on.
Having a mattress that is highly durable can save you thousands. But as companies compete for profits, everything from clothes to mattresses wears out faster. Customers give mixed feedback when it comes to the durability of these mattresses. Some folks report feeling comfortable long term, while others reported not being as cozy over the long run. Make sure to read more about these before purchasing.
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.
I love my therapedic mattress. I've had it for the past 6 months and I can't say enough good things. The only thing that I don't like is that I feel like it has fallen about an inch since I got it. I am worried that it will continue to sag.View More Reviews
I am really happy with my Therapedic mattress. It has been a good investment for my health and I've never been happier.
Not the happiest with the mattress because it has only been two years since I bought it, but it has a deep sag in it. I am not a particularly heavy person, but I'm still experiencing sagging? I need to find my warranty.
This is one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in my entire life! Really enjoy the Eclipse I have!
Love this mattress! Not like other memory foam mattresses where you sink in. My husband always gets so hot when he's sleeping and this seems to be a lot cooler as well.
love this mattress pad, very comfortable
OMg, this is a fabulous mattress cover.
Did not like the feel of the Therapedic mattress. I am used to an innerspring mattress so you might like it more than I did.
Everything about this mattress I love. It doesn't contour too much to me so I can get comfortable. I haven't slept this well in years!
Okay but the delivery was such a pain. The box was shredded and arrived late. Besides that, the bed is nice.
Really couldn’t be more happy with our Agility mattress. My wife and I genuinely look forward to going to bed each night. It’s that comfortable. I’m a side sleeper, so support for my hips and shoulders is critical. This mattress allows heavier pressure points to sink appropriately making my whole body feel cradled. Very happy with my purchase.
I was fortunate enough to win an Agility mattress in a sweepstakes recently. The mattress on our bed was very old and tired, so I was very excited. I was also skeptical about getting a rolled up mattress in a box. It arrived very quickly after being notified. My husband and I hauled the box into the bedroom , and we leaned our old mattress up against the bedroom wall - just in case we wanted it back on the bed! It was very easy to set up - took no time at all. That night I slept through the night for the first time in months. I'm not a good sleeper, and am usually up several times during the night. Since sleeping on the Agility I have been able to go back to sleep if I wake up without a lot of wrestling around. My 10 year old dog, who hasn't slept with us for a few years, has now taken up residence in the middle of the bed each night, and is still there when we wake up in the morning. I guess Agility needs to look into making dog beds next! We will be taking our old mattress to the dump this weekend, and are definitely enjoying our new Agility mattress! Thank you!!
I ordered the twin bed for my 3 year old and he has said more than once “Mama, I love my new bed!” He often refers to his bed as “cozy comfy” – and believe me, it is. Before we received our Agility mattress, my son was on a week-long nap strike. After we setup his new bed, he started napping again with no issues – and not wanting to wake up! He also falls asleep faster at night with his new bed. Just shows how important a good mattress is for all of us. Now I want one for my Master!
I was a little concerned about buying my daughter a mattress online. However, once we set-up her new Agility mattress and let it expand, a supremely comfortable mattress came to life! And once I slept on the mattress myself, I knew I’d made the right choice. It’s super comfortable!
I wasn’t sure what to expect, but Agility truly delivered. The mattress is excellent, and I am very satisfied with how comfortable it is. I’m a back sleeper, and it has been great.
Great customer service. Thank you to Sales Representative Derek and Therapedic Mattress. Cheers!
The employees were very pushy and one told us we couldn't look at certain sets of mattresses. We ended up purchasing one from the store based on price, but we will not be coming back.
I have had nothing but good things to say about them. Fast shipping and great priced mattresses.
I had the worst experience here.. they order a bedroom set without my permission and when I went in to get my money back I was told by Paula that I would have to wait for an hour to let her boss get off a conference call.. I said I just want my money. Paula told me that she has to look out for herself and her job and I would have to wait.. Paula was extremely rude and had very poor customer service..
I can't wait to get into bed each night. I nestle down into the mattress and go to sleep quickly. Thanks to Agility Bed.
The Agility bed was a huge upgrade from our old "memory foam" mattress. Previously, I thought I preferred a firmer mattress - so at first, the Agility bed felt almost too soft. But after a few months of great rest, I am super pleased by the balance of comfort and support - it's just right (no additional mattress topper needed). As I am almost 6mos pregnant, I can also attest that it's great for side-sleeping.
Just love it! Why did I wait so long to get it.
My Agility Bed is wonderful. I don't think that I have ever slept so well. Thank you, Pam
This is my second Agility mattress purchased so now each of my twin children have one! The Agility mattress was shipped right to my house and was very easy to install. My kids love these mattresses and they are so comfortable that you never want to leave them. Next will be one for my older daughter. Thank you Therapedic!
We are LOVING our Agility Mattress. Previously, we had purchase a Purple Mattress hoping that it would be the answer to both my husband and I waking up achy from an older mattress that was past it's prime. We tried it for 2 months, hoping we'd adjust, but it was just too firm. I heard about the Agility Mattress on Young House Love Has a Podcast and thought that it might be worth a try. It's so much better - still supportive but offers more give for my shoulders as a side sleeper. We are planning to replace our kids mattresses with an Agility Mattress too!
I don't know why I waited so long to get this mattress. My husband and I have slept so well and his back doesn't bother him anymore. Also, customer service was ah-may-zing.
