Comment:
I am a single person and bought a double coil mattress. When my finances are right I will be going to a single coil mattress. I had to put memory foam topper over the top and buy the version that has the zipper to connect the mattresses. However, over all the bed is very restful and survived a full deflate and reinstall when I moved. My numbers are #75 on both sides. I also have a firm memory foam pillow. Not understanding the difference of the rheum sleep and light sleep, I almost have outer body dreams I am so comfortable.

Comment:
Husband uses 65 (hard) and wife uses 40 (soft). We used to have a memory foam mattress. It was the right comfort for the husband but too hard for the wife. Less than 3 years after purchase of this $1800 bed, it began to get way too much softer for the husband with back problems who is a side sleeper. The solution was a cheap sleep number bed to which we have added 3 inches of memory foam. When the foam wears out we will replace it, saving lots of money. Tip: When you adjust the softness, sleep on it for 3 days before making another adjustment.

Comment:
We slept on a 15-20 yr old version of this in the motel we stayed at for 2 nights, and both of us felt so wonderful that we bought the C2 when we got home.<br /><br />I have had nagging pains in my shoulder, elbows, hands, and arms. After just 2 nights, I'm starting to see major improvements. I'm still doing minor adjustments. My husband who is quite tall and large also expressed that he felt great this morning, and this is just after 2 nights of sleep. We decided to get the lower end and if we need the memory foam we can buy a topper for it, but so far, I don't think I want the topper.<br />I keep my side very soft so it bottoms out when I sit up and it sits much lower than the previous pillow top, but I'll adjust because I'm getting out of bed almost pain free. I've also had back problems in the past so I think this is probably the best thing for that too.<br />They have a Labor Day sale going on now, and it was $100 off getting us a $799 price. We chose to have them install it and that was $189.00, but it only took them 25-30 min and it was all done. They also hauled away the old bed.<br />I would like to mention that they made numerous phone calls to us to schedule and plan and confirm the time. They were very professional and arrived as scheduled and were neat & clean & explained everything.<br /><br />I have been telling all our neighbors about this bed. I think everyone (like we did) thinks this is a $3000-$6000 bed because that's what they tried to sell us several years ago when we went to the store. $1,100 total, got us the bed and base & install.<br /><br />This bed will be extremely easy to move too! The base is modular plastic components with 4 flat panels and snaps together in a breeze.<br /><br />So far with 4 cats with claws, I don't see that there will ever be a puncture problem either. And the cats just LOVE this bed. I did put a mattress pad on it for a bit of a cushion, but that's it. 2 days in a hotel on an almost 20 yr old bed & 2 days on it at home and I already LOVE this bed. The pump is super quiet, the wireless remote is easy to use. What's not to love! Oh, and did I mention that I'm getting close to pain free?
