Fine memory mattress

After trying out probably a couple dozen different mattresses of different styles in 3 stores, we knew we wanted a memory foam mattress, of which Tempur-Pedic of course is the best known. The last store we were at had just got in the Paradise model of REM Sleep Solutions. We liked it, it was a few hundred dollars cheaper than a similar T-P model, so we bought this. We've had it only 3 nights. It still had a slight chemical smell which is most noticeable when the foam is compressed and released, for instance, when you turn over. It's not offensive to me but definitely there. Also, I think I sleep a bit warmer than on our old coil-spring mattress, a trait often said of memory foam mattresses. Of course it's very superior to our old mattress, but that doesn't mean much: any new mattress would have been better. We like the memory foam feel and lack of springiness as compared to coil-springs or full latex. This model seems to have an intermediate firmness; when trying the various T-P models we also liked an intermediate firmness. Only time will tell its durability and how we like it, but for now, we're pleased with this purchase and recommend it...at least, if you can, compare it with the better-known Tempur-Pedics. Note: this site requires rating the durability, which is impossible after only 3 days! So I gave it 4 stars but that should be ignored.
