    Pros: Exceptional comfort and support; light weight; easy set up with quilted cover
    Cons: New "plastic" odor must be aired out thoroughly

    Summary: Until recently I slept poorly on an ancient queen-size futon; even a feather bed on top could not alter the essential fact that the mattress was way past its serviceable life and hardly better than sleeping on the floor. But I could not get up the ... read more

    Pros: Well...if you press your hand on the surface, it does in fact leave a print.
    Cons: Didn't expand to queen size. Cover too lg. for foam. Shifts. Chemical smell. Pricey.

    Pros: Comfortable,Affordable sleep.Easy to setup.

    Pros: Thick, comfortable, seemingly durable, noticable difference in comfort
    Cons: Smell (at first), slightly smaller than mattress so leaves a gap at edges.

    Summary: I intended to buy a cheaper foam topper but upon feeling the comparison once at the store, I realized the cheaper ($50 range) would make no significant difference in the comfort of my older, hard mattress. This is worth the extra money because you can ... read more

    Cons: durability lacking; limited "lifetime"

    Summary: My experience of 7+ years using the isotonic mattress pad is that it is a great product but with a limited "lifetime". The support and comfort it provides are extraordinary. However, it has lost it's elasticity, maintaining permanent indentations on ... read more
