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.

Comment:
We went through many king size mattresses before finally trying a sleep number bed 7 years ago. It's one of the best investments we've ever made. No more flipping the mattress!!! We are both happy with our far different firmness numbers (husband likes 70 and I like 35). I have degenerative disk disease and now my back only hurts (while sleeping) when we travel. I'm always so happy to get back to my sleep number bed. We have found that our family/friends either LOVE or HATE the sleep number mattresses. Many of them kept their sleep number beds because it was the best mattress ever, but several returned theirs due to not being able to find a good firmness number.

Comment:
This is by far the biggest rip off company you will ever find. They promise you the moon and they actually deliver it!!! as you will be staring at the moon all night trying to somehow fall asleep in their defective products. They sold me an M6 model with a flexfit3 base split king. One side of the bed would not change bed position and the remote lost connectivity after 2 days. I had to wait five days for them to call me back. (A company that sells you a bed and doesnt have customer service at night. Very wrong concept IMO)....since the issue was with the base (which is not the same company even though sleep number collects the entire bill), they refer you to their sister company. After 3 weeks, they replaced the base and the mattress to a C2 with the same base and to our surprise, this one doesn't work either.....one side of the bed squeaks with any minor movement and you cannot reach the desired sleep number. The pressure sensor is clearly defective....and now they want to charge for a return. Just unbelievable!<br /><br />Needless to say, the massage option on the Flexfit3 is just a noisy vibration mechanism. The angles to which the bed lifts or legs lift are just standard numbers that they came up with....back pain will not be alleviated (this may make the pain much worse actually). I am sure this company falls under the false advertisement category and I have no idea how the FTC have not gotten a hold of them. They should.
How long have you owned it:
