I have had this mattress for several years and have been very happy with it. I am prone to back problems, but sleeping on this mattress usually makes my back feel better (whereas other mattresses often make it feel worse).
Pros: firm support with a soft visco top that isn't too pillowy
Cons: i've read that the chemicals in visco foam can be harmful to your health. i haven't had any problems and don't detect any strange smells from my mattress like some people claim. i actually feel better since i've gotten my new bed, so i generally don't worry about it. i'm not a super-green, eco-friendly person, but every once in a while, i think about whether or not it is bad for me. then, i figure there are far worse things i do to myself.
i had only paid $300 for all my previous beds, so this price tag was tough to swallow. it seemed like a big investment to make, but it was totally worth it. i was having some back pain with my previous cheap bed and wanted something with more support. i was a little hesitant to purchase an extra firm bed, but the salesperson assured me it would get worn in to be the right level of support that i wanted. he was right. it is firm, but not stiff. there is a visco foam top that gives a slight loft but it isn't too mushy. it's just enough to feel like a soft, cozy bed but with a firm base.
My husband and I have had this mattress since January 2009. It was expensive at $1600 plus. We sleep close together and when we do that, it is like sleeping in a trench. We are going to give this uncomfortable mattress away and try again with a totally different brand. Also, it is very hard to find sheets that will come close to fitting this oversized mattress.
Purchased the bed in 2008 at Jordans furniture... called several times to say we were not happy. They kept telling us that it takes a little time for the bed to break in... once it was past the 90 days... we were unable to return it. In 2009 we went back to the store to see what they could do for us, we were unable to get comfortable and wanted some prorated rebate. They ended up giving us a free topper... this did not help at all. We finally gave up and gave the mattress away to my sister... who was just happy to have a new mattress and was able to find a topper that she could work with. I still have not found a mattress to measure up to our original 2-sided Beautyrest mattress that we had for over 14 years.

It was okay at first . Four years later its like sleeping on a box of rocks lumpy hard (I believe pillow top got matted). It has a big dip ( not big enough for warranty but big enough for uncomfortable) They do not honor . their warranty. Stay away!! Had a serta perfect sleeper cheaper lasted 17 years with out problem. Really bad bed doesn't last.
We bought this mattress in December of 2007 for $1549 and had it delivered. Upon its arrival a strong chemical smell saturated the bedroom lasting several days. The mattress was fine at first. I liked the low motion transfer design. I could hardly feel my spouse come to bed and he could hardly feel my flipping. However, after about a year dips began to appear where each of us sleep and they've just continued to get worse. We are not heavy people (he weighs 170 lbs and I'm 120 lbs). After another year or so one side of the bed broke down toward the middle (where you would sit on the edge of the bed) and now has no shape or support. In fact the whole mattress feels like it sags in that one direction now. We have purchased a futon and will be freeing ourselves of this expensive, uncomfortable, off-gassing thing.
