Serta Remedy Euro Top King Mattress Set
Very Happy with this purchase
As many other reviewers stated, I too was tentative about purchasing a mattress set on-line. However, the fact that this particular mattress set had such a high ratio of positive reviews compared to many others, I decided to give it a try.
First, to address the delivery service... My estimated delivery date was set for approx 1 month out. When I received a call from the delivery company in week and a half, I was amazed when they said they could have it to me in two days. The two men that came were friendly, neat, and efficient. Of course, I had everything ready to go for them, but they got the old stuff out and the new stuff in and set up and were done within about 15 minutes.
Now I'm not one to replace things until they need to be replaced. In fact, I was still very comfortable on my old bed which I've had for probably 15 years. It was a top-of-the-line Beautyrest and I took good care of it and always had a mattress protector on it. But my wife had been complaining that it was causing her back and neck problems.
So, taking the advice of many of my friends that have purchased new mattresses recently, I decided to try a lees-expensive mattress with the thought that I'd replace it more often than before, and still end up fairly even in regards to cost over the long run.
In the three months since I've received this set, my wife has virtually stopped complaining of back and neck problems. I have been sleeping much better than before and actually am less tired throughout the day.
The main differences that I've noticed between this and my previous bed is:
(1) my Beautyrest had a steel edge support, so when you sat on the edge of the bed, it was extremely firm. However, over the years, that was the one thing that caused problems, when that support snapped. This bed does not have that, so it took a little getting used to but, in my mind, is one less thing to worry about breaking.
(2) With this bed, there is definitely more movement throughout when somebody is moving. I don't know that my old bed would have passed the "drink on the bed" test, but I might have given it a shot. This bed definitely wouldn't! But, again, these are the type of things that you accept when you move into a lower price range and purchase products with less frills and shorter life expectancies.
(3) Not being an over-sized mattress, my sheets fit better and stay put. That had been driving me nuts for years. Even the "over-sized" sheets were constantly coming off. I am glad to have that that issue behind me.
Overall, I am very happy with this purchase up to this point and hope to achieve my goal of getting five years out of this mattress set.
Initially me and my wife were very a little skeptic about buying a new mattress on-line. This is similar to buying a car on-line with out test driving. I must say; I have had the best sleep of my life in this bed. I seem to be in a deeper more relaxed sleep and have twice as many dreams as I used to. I Wake feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the new day. The mattress and box spring are pretty sturdy. I'm not a really big guy. But make sure if you get this bed to use 2 X 4's to support it. We used about 7 total. You will need a nice and strong foundation because you will receive two box springs to support the King size mattress.
I wasn't to sure about ordering this mattress without seeing it with all the mixed review, but I am sure glad I did! We love it! Quality is good and the delivery guys were very professional and were in a day early! I am very impressed with mattress!
My husband & I purchased this mattress last April. We were impressed with the speed of delivery, the set up & removal of our old mattress. At first the mattress was extremely comfortable and a big relief from our old mattress. No hip or back pain in the morning! After several months, we noticed a "hump" forming in the center of the mattress & body impressions. We were faithful in rotating & have the proper support frame. We can no longer rotate the mattress as each of us have "formed" an impression & my hip cannot tolerate sleeping in a bigger indent than my own. It feels like your in a valley and if you try to sleep toward the center, your laying uphill. I've read the warranty & sagging is covered, however, not unless it is greater than 1 1/2". My side of the bed is 3/4" & my husbands is 1 1/4". Doesn't seem like alot until you have to sleep in a gulley. We are not heavy people, probably a typical couple. My husband is around 185 lbs. & I am 120 lbs. From what I can tell, the warranty covers five years. I don't expect this mattress to last longer than another year at best. We will keep measuring the impressions until we reach the warranty minimum. Until then, we continue to be uncomfortable and wake in the morning, stiff & in pain. We are very disappointed!
decent mattress for the price
I read the 39 reviews that existed prior to my purchase and wasn't sure about buying a mattress on-line.. I am replacing a Queen bed that was a higher end mattress but could not afford to upgrade to a King in the same quality range of my previous mattress. My husband and I are over 45 and active and needed a soft (ish) mattress to ease hip and back pain. Although this mattress isn't a soft as our old queen with a pillow top it is soft and comfortable enough. This is NOT a top shelf mattress so little things will relflect the "price" such as : no handles on mattress, material on sides of mattress is not as luxurious as my old higher quality (and priced) mattress, the corner protectors on the box spring are plastic rather than metal etc. However, FOR THE PRICE RANGE this mattress is comfortable, not good for people who want ultra-soft (they should buy pillow top instead of the euro top) and not good for people who need firm. I am happy with purchase and hope it last at least 5 years...if it does then worth the price. If you expect top-shelf quality for 800 bucks then you are unrealistic but quality is good for the price. Delivery fast and efficient.
My hubby and I have been through 3 beds since December of 2011 and have returned them all to where ever we purchased them, but I am very happy to say that, finally, we have found the right bed for us at last! We have been sleeping on this bed for about a month now and this bed is soooo comfortable( more on the soft side), makes no noise, just the right amount of softness and you can not beat this price. Not to mention QVC 's stellar customer service and return policy. The only negative thing about this bed is that when one person turns over in the bed, it makes quite a lot of movement that the other person feels. The bed actually arrived about 2 weeks earlier than they stated too, which was good because we had no bed to sleep on. Delivery was great, clean, friendly, and respectful. Couldn't be happier.
Won't be returning this bed. Thanks Serta and QVC.
My husband and I have been sleeping on this bed for about 6 months now. We love it!! I'm already thinking about getting another for my son.
Quality is great but way too firm for us, even with an extra mattress pad. We returned it.
Great Bed - Great Deal
Totally happy with the purchase. Delivered before expected. Courteous and efficient delivery. Comfortable and just the right amount of firmness.
Was so looking forward to this mattress after all the good reviews. I was so disappointed. It is very hard to sleep on and we have given ourselves three weeks to get use to. Not for us. Also, the bed shakes when your partner gets in or out. Also, there is a noise each time you get into the bed. I think it is a cheap mattress, very light weight. Will replace it with a better constructed one. Hope this helps.
I must admit, I was a bit skeptical buying a mattress for this price, since my last mattress was a $3,000.00 Simmons Beautyrest pillow-top. But, this bed is fantastic! So comfortable and a great value. Don't hesitate if you need a new mattress.
Love our new bed! We're having trouble getting up in the morning
