save your money
on June 28, 2006
After reading the other reviews, I felt this product was worth a try. Having owned the Eddie Bauer and Aerobed Sport I can tell you from experience that all of these "air beds" are good for about 6 months of regular use at the most. Having worked in the plastic industry for 6 years I can also assure you that the construction of this bed is thin and especially cheaply made.
The bed lasted me a whole 5 days, and the pump is still battery operated and especially slow. Maybe I got a defective product but after reading the other reviews I felt inspired to provide a different viewpoint.
Bad back suffers like me; this bed is not a long-term choice. Look for an airbed with a thick construction for durability and the ease of an electric pump. Or if you have the money invest in a thick Tempur-Pedic pad or mattress. You save in the long term
Buyers looking for something for the occasional sleepover guests, especially the ones you don't want to spend too much on, this bed is a great solution.
The Eddie Bauer model and Aerobed models have improved over the last few years, and while still not a perfect long-term solution, offers a better return on investment
