So everyone knows that the other woot sites have this too right?
Is this Woot's way of saying it wants to take our relationship to the next level?
I'm just not sure we're at the right stage in our relationship for you to be picking out mattresses for me, Woot. I think we have a bright future and I love how things are going... But, let's take it slow and see how it goes.
How about a nice dinner tomorrow. Anywhere you'd like.
I purcahsed this mattress about 6 months ago and it's as hard as a rock. Buyer beware
What're all you people gonna do with a 10-inch mattress?

Sleep on it?
I can't comment on this specific mattress, but if you want one that gets great reviews for around the same price and has better specs (IMO) then check out this one: http://www.walmart.com/ip/12-Spa-Sensations-Theratouch-Memory-Foam-Mattress/7695950
I bought the Cal-King a month ago and its fantastic. 3" memory foam, 3" air cooling foam (important as many straight memory foam mattresses sleep very warm which is great in winter but uncomfortable in summer) and then 6" base. I've recommended it to two other friends and they love the mattresses they bought too.
Do your research on Memory Foam no matter which brand you choose. Not everyone likes Memory Foam.
sdc100 wrote:Guys, keep in mind that you get what you pay for -- even if you do get a little bit more here on Woot. At $299, don't expect the entire mattress to be made of memory foam. Indeed, the description honestly states that it's "Composed of 2.5-inch advanced ‘next generation’ viscoelastic (memory) foam on a 7.5-inch polyurethane base." That 7.5" polyurethane foam may offer support for a few months but it will inevitably sag within a year.
Bump for visibility.
Aren't most of the foam mattress on the market like that? 2.5 to 3" of memory foam + 7 to 9" of regular foam? I bought mine (Sleep Innovation) from Amazon for 2x the price and it has the same make up. So far, so good. But I guess it will take years before I find out its durability.

We have them all on platform beds. Easy to make if u have patience and are a bit handy:
List of materials and instructions. Straight forward.
This is an interesting statement:
Being sealed in plastic packaging sometimes traps odors. A few hours of airing usually removes the odor.
I can just imagine the woot packaging guys farting into each package before sealing. I know I couldn't resist.
Don't waste your money.
Mattresses typically have long warranties - 5 or 10 years. This one has 90 days. This type of mattress will soon after arrival start separating between the 3" of memory foam and the 7" slab of generic padding foam (which is worth about $5). Once the two layers separate you might as well throw it in the trash because the only adhesives that might work will also dissolve the foam.
Save your money.
Hm, we have quite a few people giving redundant answers to the same question, perhaps since as mentioned above Woot-writers neglect is a near fatal condition that causes them great unequivocal sadness, here's the links to all the mattresses, even though I know people will still say "if only they had so and so size" another 5 times minimum
Twin Size Memory Foam Mattress and Contour Pillow $179.99
10" Full Size Traditional Memory Foam Mattress with 2 Contour Pillows $199.99
10” Queen Size Traditional Memory Foam Mattress with 2 Memory Foam Contour Pillows $249.99
King Size Memory Foam Mattress with 2 Pillows $349.99
Come to think of it though if they don't read the write up, they probably wont read the comments. Oh well, I tried.

Six months ago was the middle of Winter. If your room was cold then the viscoelastic foam will get pretty hard until your body heat has warmed it for a while. I have an unheated room that has a memory foam pillow. It can get down to 40F near the window in the Winter. The pillow gets hard enough to injure someone if thrown. Still, I'm surprised that you found the mattress so hard because most of it is plain polyurethane foam, which does not harden in the cold.
Be careful. The primary metric used to measure the quality of memory foam is its density, measured in "pounds per cubic foot."
This is 4-lb foam.
From what I gather, the usual ratings go something like:
3 or less: Awful
4 pounds: Fairly poor
5 pounds: Average/Okay
6 pounds: Good
7+ pounds: Great
If you use low-end foam, it tends to be too soft, letting you sink weirdly far into your bed. Low-density foam is also not very good at providing consistent support for your body.
I wonder if woot is losing money on the shipping costs on this one.
But it probably balances out eventually
the 5 dollar shipping is worth the price of admission
I've had this about a year, and it's great for the price. It was hard to get used to, but I finally did. I put it in my old waterbed frame! It's a whole lot firmer than a waterbed, but much easier to turn over on and get out of. A platform can be built out of plywood and cinder blocks; save some money.
Isn't sex supposed to be bad on these things? I've heard that the lack of bounce makes it difficult

"2. This product arrives very tightly packed. Please unwrap and allow 48-72 hours for this product to return to its original shape."
I'm not sure, but I'm going to guess somewhere between 2 days and 3 days.
Awesome. My wife was just saying what she really wants is one more thing in bed that smells funny and never really expands to full size...
What exactly is "next generation" memory foam?
marknmo wrote:Isn't sex supposed to be bad on these things? I've heard that the lack of bounce makes it difficult
Beds are for sleeping! Kitchen tables are for sex.
When I fall asleep I wake up in the exact same spot. It's unbelievable, I have never sleep so well with another mattress. I have had this one for about 1 1/2 years.
It's best with a solid base, putting it on the floor would be best, followed by a wood box spring as second choice.
I "built" one myself using the same dimensions (2.5" memory foam topper on 8" firm polyeurthane foam on wood base) and slept like baby for first time in 50 years. Then I bought one of these last time on Woot. It's the only way to go.
Mogul345 wrote:Bought the 8" thick model last year, and it's awesome, except for when I lay on my side, I kinda sink through.
I wonder if the extra 2 inches of foam would make a difference.
I can't get the image out of my head of some poor fellow rolling on his side and instantly being absorbed by his bed - sinking through it as if he was being assimilated by the Matrix or something. This tickles me greatly.
er, well, i uh... read somewhere... that while it does not offer the same sort of bounce that a inner-spring mattress does, it does offer a bit more.. stability, and is far more comfortable than the floor or the above mentioned kitchen table. or, you know, so i read.
Hopefully it will be useful for some of you to know that memory foam is not very good for OMGOMGOMGPONIESOMG PONIES!!ing on. there's no springiness and you just kind of keep sinking in any time you adjust your position. At least it's quiet.
They must have a lot of these--this is the first time that I can remember the same item on woot! and sellout.com
Does anybody know if this mattress is flexible enough to use on a fold-in-half futon? (Maybe if we cheat the expansion process by having it expand into a folded-futon position?) My futon's mattress is flat as anything and leaves me pretty sore in the morning when I've had a dispute with my domestic partner and get kicked out of bed for the night.
Well my 10 yr old high dollar foam mattress is a sad sack - so I'm going to replace it with this one. If I no like, it goes into the guest bedroom. Now I have to figure out how to get rid of my old one.
I've always been okay, so...
Two thumbs up?
These kinds of mattresses are extremely toxic. Consider that before you decide to spend a third of your time with your face pressed against one.
You've got 3 options.
a. It can go on a regular box-spring, but I don't recommend it.
b. They make "foundations" for foam mattresses that are the size and shape of a box spring, allowing you to use a bed-skirt and have it look like a "regular" mattress. This also allows you to use one of the $25 cheap-o metal bed frames that do nothing but keep your mattress off the floor.
c. You can also put these on a slatted base like you would with a high quality futon. I have a foam mattress (from a swedish furniture company with very large stores) and that's the standard bed base they sell. IMO, this is the most comfortable way to go, because you can buy slatted bed bases with varying degrees of rigidity.
I don't know personally but my brother has a temperpedic (or however it's spelled) and he says it's even better.

Am I the only person left on the planet who wants a Cal-King mattress, and wants to know why they aren't offered anywhere? I seen Woot offer Cal King once, as an option when you went to the page offering the Kingsized, and never again.
I know its a whole whopping 4 inches narrower than a standard king, but the 4 inches added lengthwise means my feet don't hang off the end like a stupid queen sized mattress and freeze in the night.
does woot hate tall people? D-:
