I LOVE this bed. Got it for guest room & started sleeping on it instead of my Craftmatic bed. Wish I could find a queen for my own room. Practically eliminated my normal morning "pain over." My lower back is fused & this is the first time I have been pain free in the morning since my original injuries....& I got this mattress at a local Hospice Thrift Store for less than $150.00!!

This bed was recommended by my surgeon after several surgeries. It was purchased as a gift by my children to help relive back and leg/ joint pain. I was doubtful but was blown away at how much better I felt from the very first day. I have had it several years and it is like the first day! I'm still in Love with it!

My wife and I have had this Cal-King Select Comfort bed for about 17 years. It has a pillow top. It came with a 20 year warranty.
I'm 6'1" and come in at about 250 lbs. My wife is 5'4" and weighs about 125. Both of us are over 60 years old. My wife has had 3 back surgeries to fuse vertebrae together.
This bed has been good to us all things considered. It was an easy set up. It took a bit to get the settings right, but now, no problem. We've only had small issues with the air staying in, and mostly it only loses a bit when we find it necessary to move the bed. The pump has been reliable the entire time we've owned it.
This is a somewhat hot bed, especially when you first use it. Over the 17 years we've had it, that hasn't improved a whole lot. We do have a mattress warming pad (rather than an electric blanket) since we've moved to Missouri and that may inhibit the air movement a bit, but only slightly I think.
At about the 8 year mark the bed started showing a bit of a ridge in the middle from the foot to the head. I suspect that the foam may be breaking down a bit, however, it still remains comfortable after all these years. Each of my three adult children and their spouses have used the bed during times we've been away and all of them have tried to lay claim to it should we get another bed.
We've loved this bed for a long time now, and we're starting to think about another bed that will probably see us into the hereafter. The only problem I have now with this bed is what it would cost us to replace it with a bed of the same quality from the same manufacturer.
I've seen claims from all different manufacturers about high recommendations and so forth for this type bed, or that type. I can only tell you to do an extensive bit of homework, read reviews, know your warranty info and return info before making a choice. It's a fairly important thing because of the amount of time you'll spend in the bed, and it's supposed to provide a refreshing sleep as well as help aches and pains.

      The innovation available for couples to have their own preferred firmness in one bed is remarkable.

      We purchased a sleep number bed over 9 years ago and loved it! The , a year or so ago, we found mold inside. Apparently, there was a recall. We were never informed. The company sent out a brand new bed (after our newborn co-slept with us for nearly 3 years, having developed beginning asthma...). Well, the new bed squeaks with every movement! It is the plastic-y topper fabric that rubs on itself. We sleep horribly! Customer service has been useless. We are going to buy a new bed at this point...grrr...

      Worst investment ever. We bought the bed, had it shipped to us, set it up and tried it and hated it. First of all my side air chamber leaked profusely. I would set it at a certain setting at night and wake up to an empty chamber. So I call and they send out another chamber. It works but now the air pump won't fill up my husband and my side correctly. The numbers never matched the amount of air in the bed and a year later we have tried every number and found no comfort. We both wake up in constant pain. It's depressing spending so much money on complete crap. And when you call customer service, they tell you to give it time to "break in". Well conveniently that time makes it go over the crappy 90 day try out period. Wouldn't recommend to my worst enemy.

      Got the bed delivered. Programmed our sleep number...gave it a try (three days as instructed by our salesperson). When I got in bed the first time, I felt that it was completely different than the bed we had tested in store (so did my husband). Much more uncomfortable. Woke the first night with a backache...next knee pain...now feel like I have been in an auto accident or have been beaten up. VERY UNDERWHELMED. VERY DISAPPOINTED. For the money spent, I would expect much more. Worse yet, I am reading even with the "in home trial" I will have to pay for them to pick it up. I paid over 150 to have them deliver the bed which took them all of 15 minutes to install. :(

        Paid $2499.

        The day we recieved the bed we were so happy... 30 days in we were in pain. Not just discomfort.. I m talking numb legs, middle of the back pain, shoulder discomfort, I can go on and on. After calling custiomer support they sent us foam pieces to put inbetween the topper and the air chamber. that worked for about 1 month. Then they sent us foam pieces to put under the air chambers.. not any better. So the last draw for us was the foam they sent for the third time.. 3" foam to replace two 11/2" foam?? stupid. They drug us through the ringer for almost a year until we could not take it anymore. I packed it up in boxes at 2am one night ( I really wanted to burn it!) and call the next morning and demanded a retrun or a repalcement. Well since it had been a year they would not replace it with out us purchasing another..?? So we returned it and lost $1000. for shipping and a 30% restocking fee.. This is the worst experiance ever!!

          The absolute worst bed ever.  The first 6 months were amazing after that it was all down hill.  The foam padding around the air bladders crush.  Since the bladders fill in a curvature on top u roll to the center sleeping in a valley.  If you move to the othe side of the bladder you slide of the side of the bed.  Absolutely the worst bed ever designed or concieved of.
