I bought a memory foam pillow with the down cover the weekend after Christmas.... I have a $20 down pillow I bought almost 2 years ago that is in better condition after 2 years than the memory foam is after 4 weeks.
I tossed it off the end of the bed Monday night and haven't gotten around to bringing it back to Wal-Mart.
Lesson #2 is you don't buy mattresses or pillows from anywhere but the experts.

There are apparently major differences between manufacturers. Tempura seems to be the pinnacle. That'* the supplier for the Caravan seats, and it had to pass extensive durability testing before they decided to use it.

To each his own, I went from an air (not Select Comfort) to a Tempurpedic, wouldnt go back. But as stated, everybodies "memory foam" is different. There is something different about the tempur material. Hey, they us it on the shuttle

We have a King Koil, memory foam, pillow top. Still love it after 1 1/2 years. Very much worth every penny we paid for it. Our backs feel better than ever.

I hear that "memory foam" stuff doesn't bounce back in shape after a while. It also gets dirty and is hard to clean like a reqular mattress

yes, it is. but latex foam is so much cooler.

doesn't really have the same cool, press in, slow reform, its more of a bouncy heavy foam, i'm sure if anyone has ever gone into a matress store, and felt one of those thick bouncy foam pillows...

such awesome stuff

memory foam comes in many different qualities....kinda hard to differentiate if you're not getting it from the good people the first time around

I want one of these beds but alas they're all way outta my price range. I'm quite happy with the water matress from craigslist. It was a freebee haul away deal. My kinda product.
