Tempur-Pedic vs. Sleep Number - July 26, 2007, 10:25 AM

We're getting a new mattress, but we can't decide between the Tempur-Pedic or the Sleep Number. Does anyone have either of these or have any useful opinions? Comments? Thoughts? Discuss.

Each has their pros and cons. Temp is comfy but can form to your body after a while and you end up with lumps (plus the heat thing is no bien). Sleep # is nice, albeit expensive. It runs off ur electric bill though. Plus you have to by one of the more expensive ones so you dont have that constant hum of the motor in your room..

If I had to choose from those I would go with the sleep number, but you left out one terrific option that surpasses them both.

Denyse bought us a King Size sleep number bed about 5 years ago and love it. We had been in a waterbed for about 10 years prior.

You will be amazed at how many body pains you had when you no longer wake up with them.

The sleep number is a bit pricy. If I remember our pillow top cost us about $2500 delivered, but in my opinion, it has paid for itself.

I'm proud owner of the dial-a-bed Sleep Number. We bought one of the more expensive versions with the quiet motor (only uses electricity when you adjust your bed, so that's not a valid objection) and pillow top.

It is modular, so if any one part of it breaks, you just replace that one part. It will never get lumpy or misshapen. I can adjust the firmness, and he can adjust his... I normally try to adjust the firmness so he'll stop migrating to my side of the bed during the night, but I haven't found that perfect number...

I think my Sleep Number bed is wonderful. My parents tried it out and decided it was too hot for them, but I don't know what model they tried.

Tempur-Pedic FTW!

We've had ours for about 4 years and it is awesome. We also have the pillows. It's amazing how you can fall asleep and wake up in the same position.

Chris and I have the sleep number.. he swears by it and he does get a better nights sleep with it... I on the other hand can't seems to find a good setting. I've been from 25(barely inflated) up to 80(really stiff) and no matter what I end up sleeping sideways or diagonal. It constantly feels like i'm sleeping in a soup bowl. The edges have foam pads with an air bladder inside. If you want to give a sleep number a try goto wallmart and get an airmatress, hook it up to the compressor and play with PSI settings. Just my 2cents.... Thousands love it, just not me.

I have a friend who swears about her Sleep Number. However it's in storage now as she's wating for her TH to be completed and staying with her parents. She starts raving about the mattress set she's sleeping on now.

We've had a Tempur-pedic for about 3 years. All the pros and cons you've heard are mostly true. Its a great bed and cured all of our aches and pains we had before.

It will form to your body over time and can cause lumps if you choose to sleep in another position/location on the bed. But I've worn out many a matress and this is the case with any of them.

Its a little hotter since your more "submerged into" the tempur-pedic, but we just keep the room a little cooler with the a/c in the summer...and in the winter the little extra warmth is welcome...but makes it harder to want to get out of bed.

I don't have personal experience with a sleep-number, but I don't think you can go wrong with either. They both have their ups and downs.
