We will see the people who got it in the October woot praising it and they people from the year+ ago woot complaining.
Just rolled onto the (mostly) unused side of the bed and its sooo good. Remember why I loved this thing. Might as well be sleeping on styrafoam in the slump (slightly exaggerating).
Normally I listen when people say you get what you pay for. I should have heeded it this time.
112 woots and counting, since 2007. Don't ban me, bro!

I bought one of these in twin size 5 months ago from woot and I have to say, its a really great sleep. Kind of like that movie.. an English Gentleman.. a really great sleep.
I would mention though that the size really does vary, mine was almost 2" wider than it was supposed to be, and it took a couple weeks to stop smelling like synthetics (thats what she said)... But I dont wake up with back aches it doesnt over heat. They don't well either from sleeping in the same spot..
Really nice sleep...

In spite of the crater, I definitely don't regret my purchase. In fact, I just now recommended my friend and his pregnant wife get this. For $300, the price can't be beat. Sure you could get a better one for $2k or whatever that would last 5x longer, but what's the point? I'd rather have a fresh, new, and amazingly comfy one of these every 4-6 months for a few hundred bucks than pay for one that last longer but costs disproportionately more.
$300 is a lot of money for a bed that's already cratered after 5 months. For $2K you can get a top of the line airbed. Mine is by American National, not the 'Sleep Number' people. There's a 1" foam topper in it that might need replacing every 5 years or so, but it should last 20 years or more and can never develop craters. Unless you want them.
