7 years ago we bought a Tempur()pedic. Back then (and I still think now) they didn't go on sale - there was a minimum price stores had to sell it at. As it were, we picked up an original (either 8" or 10", I can't remember) that was on clearance for $800 (I think), and the branded boxspring for $300. We are still as happy as can be with our purchase.
To the other big fella remarks, at one time, I was 260/265 (at 6'4"). While I'm still that tall, I run about 225 - and the Tempur()pedic is still fantastic 7 years later.
I wouldn't be surprised if some of the Woot! folks have had more recent good experiences with other products as I suspect technology has changed a ton in 7 years. It's why I'm reading this thread as I want to be informed whenever ours decides to give up the ghost. (did you see what I did there?).
All that said, a family member bought this woot! deal today on my recommendation for their guest bedroom.
I reminded them, and I would note here too - if you order one, make sure you allow it to expand and out-gas for 48 hours in a ventilated space. And don't touch the middle or lay on it for a few days to allow it to fully expand. And...if it's made in China (it is...), let it out-gas for a few more days, as it will have a chemical smell to it....
Whew. that was a dime answer to a nickle question, huh?
