Question Sleep Number Bed?

Does anyone have one and what do you think of it?

Thanks

Default Sleep no. bed

We have one and love it. The only problem is in the center there is foam that keeps the two sides separate and it's hard, but not the end of the world.

Otherwise, it's great.

I've got one for about 8 yrs. now. Not made with top quality mat. but when the stitching starting coming apart they replaced it free. (free within the first 5 yrs.) but now the pump broke and they want almost $300 for a new one. I've been looking on e-bay. I won't buy another one, for the money and in my opinion I'm just as happy witha regular mattres.

Google the name and you'll be able to read other comments on them, many complaints.

Had one about 5 years so far. No complaints. Very comfortable. Replaced a motor for free at 2 years.
One thing you may find is that depending on your sleep number you may also find you will have a......."recreation" number

There was a long discussion, I believe it was here, a year ago or so.
I wanted to get one but then decided against it.
I think the thread was called "Good bed for a bad back", I'll look for it.

Be careful, check this link.

I wanted to add this. If you go to the store take apart the bed itself, if the salesperson won't let you then WALK!

If they do you'll see that the foam inserts are about 4" widw all around and in the middle as mentioned before. leaving the air chamber on a queen size mattres a bit on the small side (Narrow) if you ask me.

Bought a mattress alone about 6 years ago. Used and old box spring with a thin sheet of plywood over it for a foundation and saved a bunch of money. Not a "miracle cure" for a bad back, but i've been very happy with it - so far.
