For those who don't want to read the details, here's my bottom line:
I wanted a travel crib. One that I can take with me ANYWHERE, minimizing added stress. This includes air travel. The differences between these cribs in setup ease/time and functionality in my opinion are largely insignificant compared to the substantial benefit that the phil&teds has for packed up size and weight. It will be easier for me travel with phil&teds, especially by plane than the Lotus (or the Baby Bjorn). It can fit in a luggage, meaning I will not need to carry the crib as an entirely separate bag/luggage. If you don't plan to travel by air and aren't worried about trunk space in your car then sure, maybe the Lotus might be a slightly better option for you. If you're the person who doesn't plan to travel, why are you looking at travel cribs?
Packed weight and size: The phil&teds travel crib is impressively light, and packs down into a size where it could fit into another bag or luggage. This is huge if you are going to traveling by air. The lotus, is also lightweight, but when packed is much bigger and I can not see how it would be able to fit into an existing luggage, so it will add another bag--- if that matters, and it should if you're going by air.
Setup Time: Much has been made about the time it takes to setup the phil&teds. Yes, it has to be assembled, every time. This does take time, but after a few times it takes no more than about 5 minutes or less. What I didn't realize is that the lotus isn't as easy to setup as its made out to be. Sure it unfolds and snaps into place with little more than a flick of the wrist, but the nasty part I didn't know about is installing the mattress. There are little velcrow tabs on the mattress that feed through small slits on the crib and attach to anchor it down. This took me FAR longer than it should have, and I was extremely frustrated because its tricky. That being said, the method for attaching the mattress for the phil&teds crib is also tricky and time consuming, but for me, less so than the Lotus. When considering this, both cribs take minutes to setup, don't be fooled by the videos that indicate the Lotus can be setup in 30 seconds.
Functionality: Both cribs do a good job of their intended purpose. They are both sturdy and large enough. I suppose the Lotus does feel a bit more rigid and less lightly to tip over in a strong earthquake, but really I have no complaints about either crib in this regard. I do like that one wall of the crib can be unzipped on both of these, but not on the Baby Bjorn.
Mattress: the phil&teds crib has a self inflating mattress. It works, though I'm not sure I'm sold on the auto inflation. I could be doing it wrong, but I almost always end up blowing air in via the nozzle to firm it up. My son slept find on this for an entire week. Unfortunately I can't ask his opinion, so I'm going by the fact that he slept ok that its not horrible. The Lotus crib offers a more traditional foam mattress, which is nice, but this also part of the cause of having a larger packed up size, which is more awkward to carry around.
The phil&teds travel crib is better at functioning as a 'travel' crib. If you aren't going to travel much, or will only be driving then the advantage of smaller pack size and weight won't matter to you, and in my eyes these two cribs then become nearly equal. One concern about the phil&teds is the potential to lose parts. I like that phil&teds packs up small enough and light enough that I might consider hauling it with me to a park. It would likely bit in the storage area of our stroller, so it would be out of the way. One could certainly bring the Lotus, but someone would have to actually carry it-- its too big to fit in the storage area of the stroller, and for that reason, I'd be unlikely to use it much for that kind of casual use.
I haven't found replacement sheets. Its a strange size and attaches to the mattress more like a pillow cover than a bed sheet.
I am concerned about the possibility that the air mattress could get a puncture. I'm not sure what my options are if this happens, nor do I know what the chances of such a puncture are. The mattress feels like its made of a substantial material, and people use similar mattresses all the time for camping, so I imagine its unlikely to spring a leak unless punctured by something sharp.
Someone complained that in an earlier review about the stability of the phil&teds crib, claiming that their kid knocked it over. When I pushed, pulled and yanked on both of these cribs, I felt that both were stable and little difference between them. If tipping becomes a real concern, it would be easy to weight down the feet of the phil&teds crib.
The baby is safe and happy, which is the prime consideration. The item travels very well on the plane (I put it in our car seat gate check back with the car seat) ,and in a car, or just across the street to the baby sitter.
The item is very small (relative to what it is and the competitors) and it goes up very easily. Just watch the youtube video and it will go together in 2 or 3 minutes tops. The folks that spent 10 or 15 were trying to puzzle it out. I got slowed down initially too, by reading the instructions, but when I saw the setup I was able to move very quickly. Because I think that the directions could EASILY be MUCH better that is the reason for 1 star off. Also, the finish will scratch over time depending on how you pack it back up and if you save the plastic sleeves that it is shipped with. This could have been power coated or grip coated for more durability. I will be careful and care for the product well, but I wish I could "think" about it a bit less and another reason for 1 star off.

Bit difficult to unhinge the hooks (have to have a key handy to push the buttons out to collpase the legs), but overall a good purchase
Really easy to mount, super lightweight
While that does not seem like much time, it does make a difference especially after a long trip or if you are leaving your destination early in the morning (every minute counts!) I found that it discouraged me from using this crib. While the quality looks good and the mattress very comfortable, I wouldn't recommend it for frequent travellers who want a quick and easy setup and takedown.
Thankfully, Amazon has a great return policy and I was able to return it easily through them. I ended up getting the Lotus Crib (Guava family) on the Amazon US website. It was more expensive than this crib but much, much easier to set up and take down. It literally took less than 1 minute for us to figure it out. It is bulkier to carry around but not as bulky as Baby Bjorn, and the mattress is thinner but my baby slept fine in it. So overall, the Lotus Crib was the best compromise when considering size, ease of set up, weight and comfort.
We also have the bjorn travel crib, so the comparison:
bjorn is much easier to set up and take down. i prefer the suitcase type of storage bag for air travel ( feel the frame os better protected).
phil and teds is more spacious for baby, a little deeper so better for those getting ready to attempt an escape. i love that it has a fly/sun cover so you can take it picnicking, or for backyard naps. it packs down to a long but skinny duffle bag which is easier for car travel.
mais l'intérêt est le POIDS = ultraléger ! vraiment 3 kg, et prends très peu de place (idéal dans le coffre de voiture)
ATTENTION CEPENDANT à la description de la fiche produit qui est mensongère !! Je cite :
"possibilité de fermer complètement le lit : grâce aux mailles filet l’enfant est protégé des insectes et des animaux domestiques
livré avec 4 piques « sardine » pour les petites siestes au grand air. livré dans son sac de transport. matériaux résistants à un usage à l’extérieur, produit testé en altitude. possibilité de remplacer l’ouverture supérieure en maille filet par une maille de protection anti-uv (vendue séparément)"
Alors qu'il n'y a pas les piques sardine pour le lit, et surtout, pas la maille filet supérieur du lit. Il reste donc parfaitement utilisable, mais sans tous les accessoires !! attention amazon !
Nachdem wir das Bett schon etwa ein Jahr in Gebrauch hatten, waren wir bei Kurztripps morgens immer etwas irritiert, dass die Matte sich so weich anfühlte, haben das aber auf zu wenig Puste am Vorabend geschoben. Bei längeren Aufenthalten prüft man die Matte nicht unbedingt jeden Abend, daher ist uns das da auch nicht wirklich aufgefallen. Irgendwann wurden wir aber misstrauisch und haben die Matte in der Badewanne getestet -> Ergebnis (siehe Foto mit der Hand): viele kleine Löcher in einer Falte.
Allerdings so klein, dass es ein paar Stunden braucht bis die Spannung merkbar abnimmt...aber ab der Hälfte der Nacht hat der Kleine dann zunehmend auf dem Boden geschlafen. Die Art der Löcher (viele, winzig und alle in einer Reihe in einer Falte) spricht m.E. nicht für einen "mechanischen Fehlgebrauch" (Messer, Gabel, Schere...) unsererseits.
Auf eine entsprechende Reklamation (Mitte 2016) hat Phil&Teds auf die abgelaufene Gewährleistung hingewiesen und erst nach ein paar weiteren Überzeugungsmails zumindest einen Rabatt für eine neue Matte gewährt (Kosten inkl. Versand immer noch: 33€). Ich würde die Geschichte hier gerne positiv beenden...
Auch die neue Matte war undicht (siehe weiteres Foto), diesmal nicht auf der Fläche in einer Falte sondern an der Naht...und um es abzukürzen...auch die dritte, kostenlos zugeschickte Matte war an einer Naht undicht. Die Löcher waren immer so klein, dass man den Luftverlust erst nach einigen Stunden, teilweise erst am nächsten Morgen bemerkt.
Für mich eindeutig ein dickes Qualitätsmanko!
Es gibt auch Hersteller (z.B. ThermaRest) die auf ihre Matten lebenslange Garantie geben (und die beiden Matten, die wir von denen seit mehr als 10 Jahren haben, sind auch beide noch vollständig dicht!).
Aber Phil&Teds hat uns immerhin das Geld für die neue Matte zurückerstattet und wir haben jetzt drei undichte Matten zu Hause. Das Bett nutzen wir nun mit einer zusätzlichen ThermaRest-Matte als Unterlage (die passt genau zwischen die Stützen, ist also außerhalb des eigentlichen Schlafnetzes, eine undichte Matte mit Bettlaken nutzen wir weiterhin - Prinz auf der Erbse).
Aus Mangel an guten Alternativ-Konzepten für leichte Reisebetten würde ich mich vermutlich trotzdem wieder dazu hinreißen lassen das Bett zu kaufen. Aber für ein solch eklatantes Qualitätsproblem ist das eigentlich zu teuer :/
Wäre mal interessant ob noch jemand diese Erfahrungen mit der Matte gemacht hat.
The mattress is on the thinner side but that is what you get with compact.
If you put the crib on the carpet, it gives a better comfort to your child.
If you are looking for a compact portable crib that doesn't drop off in comfort, you should consider this one.
That night it took me 10 min (without really reading the instructions) to set it up. When my husband collapsed it to take it to grandmas he too said take down and set up was really simple.
We have had this set up for about a week and a half (way ahead of time before our trip so our little one will get use to it before we leave). So far she's slept every night in it since we set it up and even asked to sleep there when asked if she wants her big crib or her new one. Nap times have also been successful in it especially with the zip down side when needing to comfort your little one.
My only wish is it one of the side zippers transitioned into the top zipper since it can be hard to zip up the top in the dark/when your child is half on top of the siding.
Hopefully it works just as well on our trip.
