Get the lift version. It's what we have and we love it. So many different positions. It has a couple of usb ports on each side. Built in lights for under each base. Vibrating massage for both the back and feet.

I have shopped and shopped. I like the Tempur Pedic and would like the lift but I cannot justify $6000 without knowing for sure memory foam will be an upgrade for me. I read so many reviews that hate memory foam while some love it. Like anything else you won't know till you try one and spend some time on one.

I see companies with a 90 day, 120 day or even 365 day return policy but reviews on actually being able to return a mattress that is no longer compressed into an easy to handle box are not good.

So, I went the cheapest way I could to try memory foam. I ordered a Tempur Pedic 3" memory foam mattress topper. It sits on top of our current conventional mattress. The current mattress is a pillow top so I was concerned about sheets fitting but we just finished putting the mattress topper on and there was no issue getting the fitted sheets over the whole set up.

The memory foam is still expanding but it appears to be 95% to 100% done expanding already. Now fingers crossed that it helps and I don't have to spend a small fortune on a new mattress. LOL yeah, I'm cheap.

Think of all the fuel you can buy now for the boat this summer since you saved on a mattress.

We just received our replacement bases for our split king motorized bed yesterday. The adjustable bases are all different and range in price. Ours is the top of the line. Some have only the head that lifts. Some have no massage. Some massage only the head. Ours has the head and leg massage. Both lift independently. Each base has 4 built in usb charging ports. It also has a light underneath for the night. I love it. I can actually sleep a full night.

Don't ask google why cornflakes were invented.

The Tempur Pedic 3" mattress topper helped stretch the life of our wore out mattress. It did make the bed comfortable once again. Down side is it raised the height of an already high bed. No biggie. Worst part was over time it would walk down and need re positioned back to top of mattress. With a sheet on and comforter on the bed it was impossible to re-position.

So, we were sofa shopping and the place had mattresses. They had Beauty Rest, Tempur Pedic, Serta, Purple and more. We tried a lot of them. Conventional, memory foam and hybrids. Also tried the bed lifts with all their options. This was all at a Big Sandy superstore. Very impressive. We decided on the Purple4. We have 120 day try out with full refund / store credit if we don't like it. Loved being able to test Tempur Pedic and Purple at the same place. Very handy. The bed will be delivered next Thursday. I will post more on this once we have had a chance to try it out.

We also sprang for the beauty rest motorized base. Massage, snore control (no clue how that works) lumbar support and ....USB charging port along with a few other functions. Sales lady did not mention lights and I did not ask so probably not. Ours is not the split. We got 20% off the package which really helped knock the price down so we went for it.

You'll love that motorized base, especially if you read or watch TV in the bedroom. Much more comfortable than using a bunch of pillows or your head/back against the headboard.
One thing I will mention regarding the tilt bed, if you use it a lot, you're going to find that existing headboard storage or flat surfaces are not going to be reachable when tilted. I bought a side table to address that issue. Works well to hold a drink, meds... Here's the one I bought.

Update to our Purple 4, purple mattress. It made my back hurt worse. Wife loves it. I tried to like it, and thought I could live with it but ...my back pain during the night made it hard to sleep. I tried one of our spare beds and my back pain was there but not as bad. I read where if your back hurts when you get up but is not as bad after 15 or 20 minutes then your bed is the likely culprit.

We had 120 day trial where we could return it and trade for something else in the Big Sandy Super store. After this experience with the purple foam mattress I was afraid to try the tempurpedic ...I opted for what they call a 'hybrid' Beauty Rest in firm. It felt okay in the store and there is no return of the 2nd one we try. All the mattresses seem to be priced in the stratosphere. But same across the board online or in other stores I checked. They could not say when they would have the mattress we selected in stock so that it can be delivered but at least the paperwork is done and I won't be stuck with this purple foam mattress. A bed in a box is not for me, at least not for my everyday bed.

I love my Molblly memory foam mattress.
It sits on a frame.
The most comfortable bed I've ever owned.

I was afraid of a bed in a box too doc.
I've got back problems.
This one so far has proven to be great.
I love it.
At first I thought my body would sink in and cause discomfort.
It never has.

You made me tear apart my bedding for a picture.
Lol

That happens to me too. The broken link thing. I can see the picture though.

We're loving our new split king motorized bed. Her original mattress was a firm one and felt like you were laying on the floor it was so hard. Mine is soft. Very soft. Memory foam. My back is happy in it. But I still wake up at first light with my back on fire.

Thanks PG ...I'm just catching up here. I do see your pic and appreciate you tearing up your bedding for it.


Update on my mattress sage. Simmons Beauty Rest is still not in stock. Reconsidered the tempurpedic and decided on the Firm pro adapt one. It will be delivered next week. This is a final sale so ....I hope I like this 3500 dollar mattress cause I'm stuck with it. All sales final on the 2nd mattress you get from Big Sandy. Will post more once I've tried it a few nights. (I feel sorry for the dudes who have to move this purple mattress out. HEAVY and awkward for sure.)
