This value line from Serta features a patented coil design for added support. Consumer reviews are mostly good, and many report using these mattresses in a child's room or spare bedroom.
Sertapedic reviews generally say mattresses in this value-priced line are comfortable for as long as they don't start to sag. The Blissful Pillow Top is sufficiently soft that it affords a heavenly sleep, according to a post at Walmart, and the Lonewood Pillowtop is cozy despite its firm feel and as restful as a high-end memory foam mattress, assert Sertapedic reviews at Sears. Sleeplikethedead.com found a relatively high level of satisfaction among purchasers of Sertapedic mattresses, but its review notes that about one-third of these consumers sleep on the mattress only occasionally or for short periods; satisfaction levels dip slightly among consumers who use the mattress regularly. Back and stomach sleepers like the firm feel, according to this analysis, but side sleepers may be irritated by pressure on hips and shoulders. Finally, some consumers complain about premature sagging, and the review site estimates longevity at about four years with daily use.
Sertapedic (starting at $330, Amazon) mattresses contain the proprietary VertiCoil Premier innerspring coils, and the coil count on most queen-size models reaches 504. Some models feature extra comfort layers made of memory foam and latex foam. A wire rod runs around the perimeter of the mattress for additional stability and support. The warranty coverage on most Sertapedic models is five years.
Where to buy
Consumer comments about the Sertapedic line are relatively sparse, but those that we found were generally positive. Reported comfort levels are good and the budget pricing is attractive. Your best bet in this line is a firm model with less memory or latex foam padding to minimize the chances that the comfort layers will break down and leave the impression of a sagging bed.
