Comment:
Salesman recommended the Vantage Plush for my pressure point (hip) pain. Mattress is comfy at first, but you sink in and the mattress envelops you during the night and does seem to sleep hot. Returned it for the Vantage Firm which seems to sleep a bit cooler, but after the first night hip pain returned. Will give it the 30 day trial and hopefully won't develop the cavity other reviews have mentioned. Price point is good for the qualilty and name brand.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I bought two of these, One California King for our bedroom and one Queen for our guest bedroom. This bed is great because no matter what position you sleep in, it's PERFECT! <br /><br />I've had it over a year and am really happy with it. When my fiancé gets out of bed in the morning, I don't feel her when the weight shifts. I travel a lot and have stayed in the beds of many hotel rooms and a lot of my friends' too. This is hands down the best one I've used so far. <br /><br />I got the Cal King because I'm a tall fellow and I wish I'd fit in the queen. My only issue is that my Queen size is more firm and more comfortable than the Cal King. I recommend buying Queen size, because you will feel the difference.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Accepted delivery April 5, 2014---in less than two months showed signs of cavity developing. Called store about satisfaction 8 days ago. They were going to call back last week. Still waiting on call. And on Sunday going to church, I saw some retirement day sales by the store. Not happy with the mattress nor the store at this point. Reason we replaced...old mattress was 20 years old and in the last two years had developed cavity.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
