Wasted $3k on this

I have had this mattress for about six months now. My first attempt a writing a review did not work, so I'll try again, and hopefully save someone from making the same mistake I did. First off, standard North American King Size beds are 76 x 80 inches. At the BASE, this mattress is close, but about 3 inches from the top, it angles in. So, the sleeping area, on top, where you actually sleep, measures more like 72 x 76 inches. Being 6'4", I have the first king size bed in my life, and my feet still hang off the end! Borderline fraud in my book. Funny the bed in the show room did not have that. This type of bed is called memory foam for a reason. It remembers exactly where you slept the night before, and keeps the indentation for you. Turning the bed works for one night, and one night only. Otherwise, once you get in, be prepared to stay in that exact same spot, exact same position, all night, every night. I can only relate trying to turn over in this thing as trying to roll up a sand dune. I actually pulled a leg muscle trying to roll over one night. Intimate relations with my wife are worse than the waterbeds of the '70's. At least then you had wave motion going for you. I'll leave that at that. In life, there are some things you want to be hot. Showers, coffee, hot tubs. Not your mattress. One of the selling points of this thing was the extra gel that kept it cool, comfortable. Not so. In the winter, this may be an advantage, turning the heat off when it's 20 below zero and staying toasty warm. The other 9 to 10 months of the year, not so good. I have to admit, I usually don't get taken this bad. I did this time. Trusted what I thought was a first rate company to produce a first rate product. $3000 and I sleep on the couch. And yes I contacted the store I bought it from. "You slept in it, it's yours".
