Default select comfort / number

anyone have a select comfort or similar.. looking at bestbeds.biz for the replica version - specs seem to be the same... wanted to see if anyone has any feedback on their select number bed... likes, dislikes, whether they lived up to the "hype" etc. looking at the queen 7000 or 9000 series..


Thanks

I don't have one but we get ads from sleep number in the mail for up to 50% off because my wifes a nurse. Go to there site and look for this promo. If it's still running, I don't know if you have to prove it or not. Worth the try though.

My wife and I LOVE ours
We bought it about 5-6 years ago. Its the 7000 pillow top modle. King size with 2 air chambers. Before you buy one check online if they have a store by you. After 2 minutes of trying the bed out I was sold. Its funny how I was told be doctors all my life that a hard bed is good for your back. What a bunch of BS. My number is 35, while my wifes side is 60. It ships Fedex in about 7 boxes to your home. Then you get to spend about 90 min putting it together

They're a heck of a lot easier to move too.

After playing around with a Select Comfort bed for awhile (my sleep number is 60) we ordered a series 9 bed from http://www.sleepbetterstore.com/ for more than $2000 less than the comparable model by Sel Comfort! It hasn’t arrived yet, supposed to be here Monday. Will let you know if the quality is the same as a Select Comfort when it gets here, if you want.

We have had a Select Comfort for a year and I expect we will have one until we are put in a nursing home.

We have the Queen size 5000 Select Comfort. It took me a while to figure out what my perfect number is, but after a while I did find that perfect spot; 35. I hate sleeping anywhere else other than our bed.

The only complaint that I have is that about every week or so you have to re-adjust. It seems that the air comes out slowly and you have to go up setting and then back down to get it right again. But, hey that only takes a minute and its perfect again. With a regular mattress if your sleep sucks you're stuck with it until you buy something else.

85!!! You could almost have saved yourself a ton of money and just slept on a sheet of 3/4-inch plywood.

It looks like the 7000 series is the pillow top version.. If you have the pillow top version have you had any issues with it dipping/dropping/flattening our whatever you want to call it where you lay all the time?

The gf's sister claims hers has made a divit after a couple or three years but other than that loves it. shes not a 2 or 3 hundred pounder either..

I've had their cheapest mattress for about four years. It doesn't have the sleep # display, but other than that its the same as all of their other stuff. Saved some more money by not buying a foundation from them. Just used an older box springs and put a thin sheet of plywood between the mattress and the box springs. It has helped my back - some - but more important to me is the comfort level of the mattress in general. I haven't heard anyone with complaints about them other than the price.

I've sleep on one when I house sit every year. #30 and my back does not ache as much in the morning. One of these years I may actually buy one of my own.

Is that Thanksgiving dinner you've got a picture of?!?



Yeah, I read that the Radisson was putting Select Comfort beds in some of their hotel rooms.


For anyone that gets to this thread in the future, the Select Comfort is a much better made bed than the air beds sold through sleepbetterstore.com . Also, the sleep better people DO NOT PROVIDE REASONABLE SUPPORT FOR THE PRODUCT THEY SELL. I do not recommend buying a bed from them, tho they are significantly less expensive than the over-priced Select Comfort bed.
