Phoenix, thanks for the PDF version: consider my needs fully met!

The truncation I am seeing is solely on Part 2 of the Simplified Choice article, and is the only portion of that web page which shows truncated. See enclosed text and table screen shots to get an idea of what I see. The text is hard to guess as the display truncation cuts off about 10-12 words at a time. The table cuts off within column 3 out of 6 columns. I have no suggestions as why Part 2 doesn't display as well as Part 1 but I surely appreciate your sharing your thoughts by PDF to make up for it.

Hopefully the screenshots attached are useful. Thanks again!

Hi Phoenix,

I'm wondering if you know anything about the eight sleep mattress?
www.eightsleep.com/buy-eight-mattress/

These are the specs that they gave me;
2" Synthetic Latex 3lb 12 ILD
2" Visco 4lb 11 ILD (memory foam)
2" 1.8 Foam 22 ILD (memory foam)
4" 1.8 Foam 35 ILD (memory foam)

i'm looking at a queen sized mattress and they are selling at $819 after a 22% discount coupon.
I'm comparing them with tuft & needle and arctic dream.

I'm 5'2, about 120lbs and sleep on my side about 70% of the time and the rest I mainly sleep on my back

What do you think of eight mattress? They also come with all these high tech features but the most important thing for me is whether the mattress itself is any good (enough support through a 12 hour night of sleep - I sleep a lot)

Thank you!

Hi squidgette,

Welcome to the Mattress Forum! :)

I'm wondering if you know anything about the eight sleep mattress?
www.eightsleep.com/buy-eight-mattress/
These are the specs that they gave me;
2" Synthetic Latex 3lb 12 ILD
2" Visco 4lb 11 ILD (memory foam)
2" 1.8 Foam 22 ILD (memory foam)
4" 1.8 Foam 35 ILD (memory foam)

The Eight Sleep mattress hasn’t been discussed before on the forum, so thanks of bringing them up.

While I’m not personally familiar with the mattress, I can make a few general comments.

Your specifications are a bit incorrect. The top layer is one of the new breed of what I term “ high performance” polyfoams , and it is 2” of 12 ILD 3 lb density. They list is as “latex-like” on their web site, and in another section they list it (incorrectly) as “synthetic latex”, but it is polyfoam, Beneath that is 2” of 11 ILD 4 lb memory foam. Under this is a 2” piece of 22 ILD 1.8 lb poly foam and then a 4” piece of 35 ILD 1.8 lb polyfoam (these two layers are not memory foam as you had listed). These would be good quality materials and for your BMI there would be no obvious “weak links” in the mattress. I would provide a caution for someone in the "above 200 pounds or so range" with the 1.8 lb support core and the 4 lb memory foam.

Eight Sleep has a focus on their mattress cover for measuring temperature, heart rate, respiration and movement and then works to connect to other smart home devices such as lights, thermostats, coffee machines, etc. It collects your data and combines it with the data they collect worldwide in an attempt to develop a “sleep algorithm”. Here are a few of their patents.

While I can certainly help with “how” to pick out a mattress, the only way to know for certain whether any specific combination of materials will be suitable for you or which ones you tend to prefer will be based on your own careful testing (hopefully using the testing guidelines in the tutorial ) or your own personal sleeping experience because different people with different body types, sleeping styles, sensitivities, and circumstances can have very different experiences or opinions about whether the same mattress provides "enough" comfort for their own personal preference.

If you do end up purchasing one of these mattresses, I’ll look forward to your comments on it.

Hi Phoenix,

Thank you so much for the reply. Your analysis was very helpful. I think I am going to go try out tuft and needle's mattress since they have a showroom in the Bay area.

Because all three mattresses are in a different price range (200, 600, and 800), I'm just wondering how the quality of their material compare.

Quite honestly, it has been a toss up between the arctic dream and eight. I feel like either I will go all out with all the bells and whistle for eight's technology or I will go with a solid basic. I was a little worried at how arctic dream makes it possible to have a high-quality mattress at a $200 price point so I was hoping to get some feedback on how their materials compare.

thank you!

Hi squidgette,

You’re welcome.

You didn’t specify which Arctic Dreams model you’re comparing, but they use 3 lb. Energex high-performance polyfoam in 2”-3” over a conservatively classified 1.55 lb. polyfoam core (specs out to 1.75 lb.). Overall, the Arctic Dreams is a great quality/value choice and you’d be hard pressed to find better quality/density materials in a mattress in this lower budget range.

There’s more information about the Tuft & Needle and many of the other “simplified choice” mattresses in post #2 here .

Just wanted to point out here my experience trying to get information from OSOsleep. Their online chat has not been functional for at least a couple of weeks. I've failed to get a hold of a rep on the phone in 3 tries. To be fair, they give the option to leave a message and supposedly get a call back. I never tried that, but the recording mentions [email protected] I emailed them yesterday with no response over 24 hours later. I'm probably too impatient, but I was ready to buy now and ended up getting a Bear mattress.

I've had very easy experiences with Brooklyn Bedding, Kiss, Addable, Dreamfoam, Bear, and Purple, including quick email responses from BB, Addable, and Dreamfoam.

Hi mitchelcole,

Thank you for your update regarding OSO Sleep. After reading your comments I contacted them with your concerns and they did indeed discontinue their chat option some time ago, but they missed and forgot to remove one of the CHAT icons on their FAQ page. They were thankful that you pointed this out to them. Regarding reaching them, phoning and leaving a message is still the fastest option (I know you said you didn’t leave a message when you phoned them), as they are often busy handling other calls. Email replies do take longer for replies, and they suggested to use [email protected] or their phone at 888-888-4559. I’m sorry you weren’t able to speak with them in a timely manner for your decision-making process.

On the other side of things, congratulations on the purchase of your new Bear mattress! :cheer: I’ll look forward to your comments about the product once you’ve had a chance to sleep upon it for a while.

Thanks, Phoenix! I'm glad you were able to notify OSO Sleep of their chat remnant! I was hoping to keep any poly materials at least 2 lbs, but the celliant cover of the Bear mattress was just too tempting. I can't seem to get used to the latex in BB #BME, so hopefully going in another direction will hit the spot.

They were very appreciative of your "heads up". Thanks for taking the time to post about that.

Here's hoping!
