Sleep Like The Dead On This Bed!
on February 22, 2015
I don't write many reviews, but I read a lot of them. This is the largest online purchase I have ever made. Reading the reviews of this set with the 10-inch mattress convinced me to buy the 12-inch set, which I read extensively since there was only one review here at the time of my purchase. One of my friends bought the Prodigy with cooling gel foam mattresses at Sleepy's and spent $5000. This looked like a much better deal.
We had a 13 yr old queen size memory foam mattress that had served us well, but was broken down to intolerable. I was only able to sleep 2 hours a night before tossing and turning for 30 minutes before giving up and getting up. I was exhausted and desperate for sleep. We knew we wanted an adjustable split king bed.
So I ordered this one and eagerly anticipated its arrival.
We have had the bed now for almost a month. I ordered on January 6th and it didn't arrive until January 27th. Apparently, the manufacturer got behind in production. The mattresses arrived before the bases. The bases arrived on a pallet and the delivery driver rolled them up our driveway on a pallet jack to our garage. Each base weighs about 150lbs. My husband and 19yr old son brought them into the garage where we removed them from the boxes, then carried each base upstairs to our bedroom. They are heavy and awkward but they managed just fine. It would have been much more difficult to maneuver if they had been carried upstairs in the boxes.
Once we got them upstairs, I set to getting them ready. Lay them with the machinery side up. The controller boxes take two 9-volt batteries which are included. I found the owners manual online and I thought we had to supply the 9-volt batteries because the manual mentions the batteries for the remotes are included, but does not say the 9-volt are included. There are two sets of legs included. We used the shorter of the two and we elected not to use the wheels. Everything went together easily and we turned the bases over and put the bedframe together around them. We have hardwood floors and used gym mat padding under the legs to reduce noise and vibration against the floor. HIghly recommend doing this if you also have flooring without carpet.
But how comfortable is it?!
It is AMAZING! We put our beds into the zero gravity position the first night and every night since. We both slept through the night without waking up at all until morning. Even in the zero gravity position, it is easy to sleep on your side. We both start out sleeping on our backs and turn to our sides at some point during the night. It is no problem at all. The mattresses are incredibly comfortable and supportive. The motors for adjusting the bases are not silent, but also not incredibly noisy. Perhaps the sound would be reduced on carpet. Now that we have the adjustable beds neither my husband nor I can stand to lay flat and wondered how we did it for so many years.
The difference between sleeping flat and in zero gravity is unbelievable. It has reduced my husband's snoring considerably.
I highly recommend this bed set. I have had all my friends try it out because we were so excited about it. They were all amazed and we are too. We have never experienced such a great night's sleep as we have with this bed.
Bottom LIne: Great deal, great bed, great customer service.
