Serta Perfect Sleeper Review

best

Budget buys are available in the lower end of this series, which concentrates rows of continuous coils in the center third of select models for extra support. This line scores high with most users for its firm yet comfortable feel.

Serta Perfect Sleeper reviews are often laudatory. In a study by sleeplikethedead.com, nearly two-thirds of 532 (starting at $560) owners express satisfaction with the product. They award high marks for the first year, the report continues, but one-fifth mention problems with sagging within the next two years. Still, Perfect Sleeper reviews have good things to say about the budget price and options for different levels of firmness. Reviewers suggest that people who sleep on their back are better off choosing a medium or firm model; those who sleep on their stomach should opt for a medium-firm model; and side sleepers would do best with a medium or soft mattress, although early onset of sagging is bad for spinal alignment.

Specific models in the Perfect Sleeper line often garner strongly positive reviews. One model -- the Knollcrest Plush Super Pillowtop -- earns an almost perfect rating in comments posted at Sam's Club where consumers say it's firm, yet soft (owing to the pillow top) and a good night's sleep is enjoyed from the very first night; one owner says it feels just like the mattress at his preferred hotel. The Gallagher Tight Top Firm Product NA provides such restful sleep without any symptoms of back pain that a daughter just ordered the same set as her parents have, according to a Perfect Sleeper review at Macy's.

The Serta Perfect Sleeper mattress is made up of continuous support innerspring coils -- 532 of them to be exact - that are supposed to prevent the movements of one sleeper from bothering the other. The coils extend from edge to edge and the edges are reinforced with foam and a steel rod for additional stability and support. The padding consists of a combination of memory foam, latex foam, and quilt layers. This mattress line was recently redesigned in partnership with the National Sleep Foundation and it comes with a warranty of up to 10 years (depending on the model).

Despite complaints from some owners about premature sagging (common in the budget innerspring mattress segment), Serta Perfect Sleeper is a good, cheap, mid-tier choice. The price is right and for many consumers, so is the comfort.
