First off, I just want to state how dissipointed I was to find out that there is no free site-to-store shipping available for Hawaii, so I had to pay almost $100 extra for this air mattress.
Anyways, I am a college student and I live in a 3 story walk up apartment building, so I needed something affordable and portable. I do like this air mattress because it looks and feels great. Unlike most air mattress that have thoes uncomfortable oval dimples, this mattress has that diamond quilt look. It's more comfortable that most air mattresses but it can be very firm and I needed a matteress topper. The motor inflates this air mattress kinda fast, but isn't the quietest. And like I mentioned, I needed something portable and this met my expectations. My problems with this mattress are:
The headboard. I placed the air mattress against the wall so the headboard has no use to me, just kinda takes up room. Which also leads to my next problem, getting a fitted sheet on this mattress. unlike an air mattress without a headboard, you can just fit a fitted sheet around the whole mattress. There is room for a fitted sheet between the headboard and the section you sleep on, but not a lot of room. I now have to fix and readjust my sheets every 3 or 4 days because my fitted sheets come off a lot.
Also, like everyone worrys about air mattresses, yes this one does lose air throughout the night. I usually refill it every 2-4 days. It only takes 20 seconds so its not a huge issue, but the motor isn't very quiet like I mentioned. So, for $300 ($100 extra to ship to Hawaii) I definily would NOT buy this again. The mattress itself looks and feels great, but your sheets will cover it and every mattress can be firm. It's irritating to have to fix the sheets all the time and an inconvience to have to put air in it all the time. I expected more from Serta.
