Things to Learn from Sleep Science Mattress Review Sites
To help take some of the confusion out of buying a new mattress, Cheap Mattress Reviews was founded to provide you with consumer reviews of all the leading mattresses available today.
Here we will look at a brand of mattress that backs up its claims with a 20-year warranty against defects, which normally points to a manufacturer that delivers quality and top-notch workmanship, as well as the best materials in its designs. The maker is Sleep Science and they are one of the newer manufacturers on the scene, specializing in memory foam mattresses. We consider the information on the manufacturers’ web site, as well as on some Sleep Science mattress review sites and let you know what you can expect from this brand.
Memory foam in general is one of those materials that can confuse people because there is such a price variation between many mattresses that essentially look the same and claim the same features and benefits. Anyone who has delved beneath the surface a little will know that there are many cheap variations now to the original Tempurpedic-style memory foam that first gave these mattresses a boost in popularity. With cheaper materials come compromised benefits so be wary of cutting corners with memory foam – the cheaper ones will not contain the necessary quantity nor quality of memory foam, which varies in its make-up and density according to the chemicals used in the manufacturing process.
Sleep Science promotes three basic designs of memory foam mattress on its site – the 14, the 13 and the 8.5. These numbers refer to the thicknesses of the mattress. For example, the Vega, or 14 inch mattress, uses 2 inch of visco memory foam, 2 inch of latex, a 1 inch air barrier and a 9 inch “Air channel” base. It features Edge Technology that helps support the mattress when someone sits on the bed’s edge. The memory foam provides the softness for comfort and the latex layer the support. The Vega also boasts a silk-blend finish and micro-suede sides, which adds to its luxurious feel.
In the mattress reviews we came across Sleep Science mattresses fared well for all the key categories like durability, comfort and support. They are generally sold online at the big household name retailers. Price-wise you are looking at between $800 and $2000, so they are a mid-upper range option. The main complaint was that the mattresses are heavy (the latex component partly accounts for this in the case of the Vega model.)
If you are considering buying a Sleep Science mattress then balance what the customers say with what you learn from the manufacture and from online retailers, as well as physically testing a few of the mattresses in-store if possible. That way you will have a more rounded picture. When it comes to review sites make sure that you are getting independent analysis. It’s easy nowadays to fall into the trap of taking reviews at face value when, in fact, they can be nothing more than extensions of marketing sites. If you take care to find sites that are reviewing multiple brands across the market, offer separate non-brand specific buying guidelines for all mattress buyers (many of whom will be new to the game) and which combine testing and analytical reviews with customer comments, then you should have more success.
