Fortech queen air bed is elevated off the floor makes it very easy to get on and off of you don't have to get down on the floor. I have had the regular air mattress before and you had to basically crawl on the floor to get in bed I have also had times that it was very cold and being on the floor makes you stay colder, not to mention the knees and elbows hitting the floor through the mattress. This mattress is a comfortable 17'' off the floor, so nice. I also love the automatic pump I had never had that before either. My husband plugged it up and it took just a minute or so to air up and be ready but it does have the convenience of the manual option available, which would be great for camping. The deflating was a bit time consuming took a little while to get it ready to put away. It said that it supposed to have a travel bag but mine was missing. This is a very comfortable bed and you have 3 levels of firmness so everyone would be happy with that. It seems very supportive and comfortable to lay on it has a soft cloth like cover I think the sheets will stay on good with that, also it uses standard queen sheets that fit very well. Seems to be built very well to stand up and stay stable when other person moves and will last. The Fortech mattress will be great for company, camping, taking to the in-laws. I wouldn't mind sleeping on it or to have company sleep comfortably. Very impressed.
