Used this as my primary bed for about 9 months
December 15, 2013
I used this bed as my primary bed for about 9 months as I relocated and my family had not followed me here yet.
Couple of things about this bed - mine sprung leaks probably at least every other week or so. None of them were so bad that I found myself laying on the floor in the morning. It did get annoying, but I also don't think it was manufactured to be used as a primary bed for such a long time. I would find the leak, mix up a little 5 minute epoxy, pump the air out and dab a little of the epoxy on the leak. An hour later, I'd pump it back up and I'd be good for another week or so.
On the good side -- the corner 'catches' to hold the sheets in place were excellent. They were nice and strong and the sheets did not slip out of them ever. Yet - it was easy to change the sheets when needed. I wish my regular mattress had this type of a device on it.
I found that I needed a little more cushion on the top, so I purchased a cheap mattress pad at the store which made this sleep very close to a real bed.
Overall, I'd buy this again even with the air leak problems I had.
