We have narrowed things down to APM and Sleep EZ.. The only issue that stands out is the core. APM has a six inch core that we'd top with medium or soft. If I remember correctly, by using three inch layers, Sleep EZ provides more options to customize , and adjust if necessary. Is this an important consideration? Will having three layers to work with versus two benefit us in the long run? Thank you!!!

There is more about the pros and cons of a single 6" support core vs two 3" support cores in post #2 here .

The choice between them would be a preference depending on how important it was to you to be able to have additional fine tuning options after a purchase. Either way if your initial choice of layers was a suitable firmness for you in terms of PPP (Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and Personal preferences) then the ability to do some additional fine tuning may not be important or justify any extra cost because you wouldn't need them but if your initial choice wasn't as suitable for you in terms of PPP as you hoped for then the ability to do some additional fine tuning may be worth it to you.
