The big selling point of the Home Trends Raised Air Mattress among owners and experts is its budget price of $40 to $60 (depending on size), compared to $100 to $200 for the comparable AeroBed Premier Comfort Zone. Reviewers say this mattress, which comes with its own electric pump, is easy to set up, though it can't quite match the AeroBed for durability or comfort. Still, the Home Trends Raised Air Mattress inflates to a height of 20 inches, compared to only 9 inches for the AeroBed Premier Comfort Zone. This is a good choice if you only have occasional overnight guests who aren't too picky about their sleeping arrangements.
