EIGHT SLEEP

Prepare to have your mind blown when you look at what Eight has to offer in the foam mattress department. Did you ever think that your mattress could trigger your lights to turn on when your alarm clock goes off? Or automatically turn on a "bed warming" feature if the room temperature gets colder than you'd like? Eight can do all of that - and more.

Billing itself as a "sleep improvement system", the primary feature of Eight's mattresses is the Smart Cover (which is also sold separately from the mattress, if you already have a mattress that you like). The Cover fits like a standard mattress pad and provides you with a wealth of information about your sleep habits - sleep phases, breathing rate and heart rate, for example - similar to what you would get from today's popular bracelet-style sensors, but without having to wear anything extra.

The Smart Cover also incorporates a warming feature with two zones, so if you like it toasty and your bed partner doesn't, you can both have it your way.

Even more impressive is the way the Smart Cover can be connected with other Wifi-enabled products, allowing you to create a "smart bedroom". Want the lights to dim when you set your mattress to night mode? It can do that. How about lowering the thermostat when you're finally asleep? Yes, it can do that too - assuming you have the additional, non-Eight products needed.

Eight offers Smart Mattresses in four sizes: Full, Queen, King, and Cali King. So, if you're looking for a high-tech twin mattress, you're out of luck at Eight. They do offer the same mattress base - minus the sensor pad - in Twin and Twin XL, so you can still send your kid off to college with a great mattress. You just won't be able to keep tabs on his sleeping habits.

The mattress itself consists of four layers of foam:

  • 2" of reactive foam on the uppermost layer, designed to stay cool and provide comfort
  • 2" of contouring foam on the next layer, which contours to the body and offers pressure relief
  • 2" of supportive transition foam, providing consistent weight distribution for all shapes and sizes
  • 4" of high density support foam, adding firmness and a durable foundation

Customer reviews are extremely positive, for both the Smart Cover and the Eight mattress itself. Shoppers say that they've consistently gotten a great night's sleep, even after using the mattress for several months. Eight does provide a 100-night trial: if you don't love your Eight mattress, you can get a 100% refund, and Eight will pay for the return shipping. Given that it can take some time to get the smart features integrated and detecting properly, we think this is a great perk offered by Eight.

Like most foam mattress retailers, Eight ships all mattresses for free. Keep a look out for special promotions, too; at the time of our review, Eight was offering two free pillows with every mattress purchase. Also, if you're a student, first responder, or active/retired/veteran military, check out the links at the bottom of the page to save an additional 10%.

Unless you're specifically looking for a smart twin mattress, Eight is an excellent choice for your foam mattress purchase - especially if you love having the latest tech at your disposal...even when you sleep.

LIVE AND SLEEP

Live and Sleep is a newer, U.S. based company that offers memory foam mattress shoppers affordably priced, eco-friendly and comfortable options. Featured in the Miami Herald, Boston.com, Star Tribune, ABC News, and Fox News, Live and Sleep mattresses are sized and priced in a range that is likely to meet everyone's needs. Online publication "The Good Trade" noted that the Live and Sleep company is "truly trying to make an eco-friendly product".

Features of the Live and Sleep foam mattress line include:

  • Memory foam that conforms to the body
  • A high-density support core that provides the right support
  • An eco-friendly construction that is CertiPUR-US certified, meaning it is guaranteed to use fewer chemicals than other mattress manufacturers
  • A quarterly donation of a portion of the purchase price to the National Alliance to End Homelessness

Live and Sleep's concept is a bit unique in that their foam mattresses are not sold in stores. Live and Sleep understands that most people can't truly try out a mattress unless it's in their own private home. Therefore, mattresses are sold online and come with a solid return policy.

The thicknesses and sleep trial periods of the mattresses are:

  • Classic (10" thick) including a 30-day sleep trial period
  • Elite (10" thick) including a 75-day sleep trial period
  • Luxury (12" thick) including a 100-day sleep trial period

With the Classic mattresses, there is a break-in period of 1-15 nights and they are eligible for return between 16 and 30 nights. With the Elite and Luxury mattresses, there is a break-in period of 1-50 nights and they are eligible for return between 51 and 100 nights. Customer support and returns are handled through an online form, email, and a toll-free phone number. Live and Sleep will provide customers a full refund or a different mattress, if their initial purchase doesn't meet their needs.

Out of 250 verified buyer reviews on their website, an impressive 78% gave their purchase a five-star review. The two through four star verified buyer reviews on the Live and Sleep website included a mix of mostly happy or neutral reviews with one or two minor complaints as well as complaints about the construction of the mattress, temperature, advertised vs. real firmness, and a difference in the advertised country of manufacture (United States) vs. what was found on the tag (China).

Only four verified buyer reviews on the Live and Sleep website were one-star reviews and many of them were inconclusive as the buyers hadn't had enough time to know for certain whether the mattress was going to work for them. The complaints included having to return the mattress because it wasn't comfortable to sleep on, the mattress being the wrong size for the bed, and late delivery of the mattress.

In a short period of time, Live and Sleep foam mattresses have produced a long list of happy customers. While their selection is limited to only 3 types of mattresses they of most shoppers. And, the return policy guarantees that if you are unhappy for any reason, you can get your money back or try another mattress. Live and Sleep provides quality memory foam mattresses at reasonable prices that shoppers can feel confident buying.

Foam Mattresses

To help you find the Best Foam Mattresses, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of Eight Sleep and Live and Sleep.

Foam Mattresses are the latest trend in the mattress industry. A few years ago consumers were able to choose between one or two foam mattress brands - but now, several companies compete in the memory foam mattress business.

Adults are attracted to both the comfort and support that a well-made foam mattress provides, especially over the standard spring mattress. Many people that have complained of back pain for years are now finding relief from simply buying a new mattress made of foam. The design of foam mattresses eliminates the pressure points that can cause body pain and restless sleep.

With a number of new companies entering the foam mattress market, it's important to know what to look for when shopping for a foam mattress. Before you make the move to purchase a foam mattress, you should consider the following:

  • Cost.  What is the price range for the foam mattresses offered?
  • Customer Feedback.  What are customers saying about their experiences with the foam mattresses and the company's they bought them from?
  • Return Policy.  In the event you're not satisfied with your purchase, does the company enable you to return the foam mattress for a full refund?
  • Guarantee.  If your foam mattress breaks or disappoints you in a few years, is it still covered under warranty? For how long?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Foam Mattresses available today. We hope these reviews help you find that perfect night's sleep right away!
