What we Learn from Sleep Number Reviews
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.
If Conservative Talk show hosts Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh are to be believed Sleep Number beds, from Select Comfort, are fit for a King. We take a look at some Sleep Number reviews to see if all the marketing is right!
Sleep Number beds have been around since the late 1980′s when they were introduced as the adjustable and program-able bed. Almost 25 years later they’re still going strong and the fundamental design has remained roughly the same. It still utilizes the air chamber set between two layers of support form above the foundation, with a comfort layer of foam and a cover over the mattress. This is all controlled by the Firmness Control system that will nowadays be a wireless remote control connected to an inflating or deflating device. The Sleep Number system allows the sleeper to select a firmness level number between 1 and 100 which should provide the same level of firmness at all times and allows for two different settings on either side of the bed, customizing the mattress for couples.
When you buy a Sleep Number you will get a 30-night trial and a 20-year warranty. The bed is assembled without the need for tools. Without going through them all there are 8 main mattresses in 3 different ranges – the main differences being the thickness of the comfort layers and the remote control systems.
The main Sleep Number bed reviews we came across reported great owner satisfaction in general. One site that monitored feedback from 1500 owners reported 78% customer satisfaction, rating especially well for longevity, motion isolation and overall comfort – which are 3 of the most important categories.
The main complaints were about the center of the bed where some people reported being able to feel the foam padded joint between the two air chambers; some people also reported a downwards roll towards the center, but this problem seemed to be worse in couples that had vastly different settings on the two sides of the bed. People who had similar settings didn’t point to this as an issue. The other main issues were with the bed gradually losing air and fluctuating in firmness levels because of atmospheric conditions, temperature or body-weight.
