Comment:
I have been married for over 25 years and this will be my sixth and last bed. Every bed I have purchased has caused aches and pains after the first month of ownership. I have had this over 6 months and I am extremely happy. I put a thin pillow top on it day one because my wife insisted on it. I made a couple of adjustments the first week and I now sleep like a baby. Wife went back and got assessed at the sleep store and she is very happy. By the c2 and save money over the i8 by adding your own topper.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Bought twin XL to replace old mattress. Already had an S-cape adjustable base. Delivery and set up for the twin mattress was $179 and mattress was uncomfortable from night one. I called the company and asked if the delivery men might have set it up incorrectly. They sent me a 1 inch topper to place under zipper. Still could not find comfortable position as it lacked comfortable back support and too much air seemed to remain in leg area at lower settings. Have tried numerous settings and this mattress is not even close to the comfort level of the previous mattress that I had. The air bladders seem to fill and deflate randomly rather than with any consistency through the mattress. Truly disappointed as I am a back sleeper and expected to be comfortable on the highly publicized sleep number bed.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I've had Sleep Number beds for about 15 years. They're great when they work, however, like many others, I've had mechanical problems with mine. Most of my problems have centered around the pump. The pump not only adds air to the mattresses, it has a valve that keeps air from leaving the mattresses. If the pump doesn't work, the mattress may collapse and you end up sleeping directly on the hard foundation. A replacement pump for an out of warranty bed costs $500 and is warrantied for only one year.<br /><br />The dual chambered models have a canyon between the two mattresses. There's a very soft foam block included that's supposed to make that better, but it doesn't prevent rolling into the canyon and it's too soft to provide support. Some of the new models have mattresses that zip together to prevent rolling into the canyon but if the two sides have dramatically different settings, you may still wake up in the center of the bed. This problem makes cuddling in the center of the bed literally painful. The single chamber models, like my first one, don't have this problem. <br /><br />Their adjustable foundations are made by Leggett & Platt, and if you have problems with that, you have to deal with them, not Sleep Number.<br /><br />The warranty is heavily pro-rated, so the replacement parts become very expensive very fast. If replacement parts were reasonably priced, pro-rating wouldn't be much of an issue but they cost a small fortune. You should figure in these costs (particularly the cost of a replacement pump and/or remote control) into the total cost of ownership.
