In reviews, the AeroBed Premier Comfort Zone places second only to the AeroBed Premier Comfort Zone Raised, which inflates to a height of 2 feet instead of the less expensive bed's height of 9 inches. Still, reviewers say the AeroBed Premier Comfort Zone is comfortable and easy to set up, inflating automatically in about 60 seconds. They also say it folds and stores much more easily than its raised counterpart. If price is an issue, though, you might want to investigate the budget Home Trends Raised Air Mattress, which reviewers also praise.
