May help improve sleep quality. Tempur-Pedic gets high overall ratings from thousands of owners, with many saying their mattress has improved their quality of sleep. Most say it conforms well to their body, providing good support. It's also great at isolating motion, users say, with many adding that it relieves pain. Some users complain that Tempur-Pedic mattresses tend to trap heat, which can make the memory foam uncomfortably warm to sleep on, and some say they give off a chemical odor when new -- though that's an issue with most foam mattresses. While Tempur-Pedic does offer their mattresses in soft and medium soft options, user input indicates that memory foam mattresses tend to feel firmer, overall, than other types. If you buy the mattress online, Tempur-Pedic offers a 90-day return policy, less shipping fees. Brick-and-mortar stores may not offer that, though.
Expensive. Most Tempur-Pedic owners say they like their mattress and would buy it again, although even satisfied customers complain about the cost. The line starts at an estimated $1,300 and goes up to $7,500 for a king-sized mattress plus foundation. If you choose an adjustable foundation, the top price is even higher. Tempur-Pedic offers a 10-year full-replacement warranty on mattresses. There are four Tempur-Pedic memory foam lines: Tempur-Cloud Supreme, Tempur-Contour Supreme, Tempur-Flex Supreme and the newly introduced Tempur-ProAdapt with a removable, washable cooling cover.
Good durability. Owners tend to keep their Tempur-Pedic mattresses about eight years -- a longer period than that for both other memory foam mattresses and other mattresses overall, according to editors of Sleep Like the Dead. In addition, this website reports that only about 13 percent of users find that their mattress sags or softens within three years of purchase. By contrast, more than 22 percent of innerspring owners complain of sagging in the first four years. Overall, when it comes to long-term durability issues, Tempur-Pedic earns one of the highest level of satisfaction of all mattresses.
