I bought this mattress approximately 4 years ago...for the first year it was fine...after that, it showed significant wear. Through that time I weighed between 170-190 lbs..so not a very large person, the bed frame was strong and I rotated the mattress as often as I could.
Eventually you end up with a big crater in the middle of the bed. The boxspring(s) make no sense... I would not recommend this bed unless you want to buy something else in 2 years and its really cheap.
Pros: Comfortable in a general, "normal" way - not too firm and not too soft. Was able to accommodate my husband's and my very different sleeping preferences (back vs. stomach; comfy vs. not too soft)
Cons: Bottom side is not finished for use! What a waste - if you want to rotate your mattress, you are stuck to just turning it around 180 degrees. After less than 5 years, the wells where we sleep became large.
