My wife and I wanted to replace our 10 year old IKEA mattress. We had heard about memory foam mattresses so decided to give it a go as she sometimes gets aches and pains from the gym and I have longer term back issues.
After a bit of research we settled for the Ergoflex Euro King Size as offering the best features for the money (and much cheaper than the "leading brand" - no names needed). There is also a sale on at the moment on their website which we took advantage of. If you have an IKEA bed remember to measure it to check whether it is European King size (width 160cm) as opposed to standard UK King size (width 150 cm).
It arrived promptly by TNT all rolled up in a cardboard box. Reasonably heavy but easily movable by two people. Having got it out of the box and put it on the bed frame (with a clearly labelled This Side Up) the outer plastic was easy to remove and with a bit of heaving the mattress filled the bed frame perfectly. At this point it is still shrink wrapped. Then we removed the second layer of plastic and watched in wonder as the mattress foam self-inflated up to its full height (which is the height I would say of a premium normal mattress). They recommend 4 hours for this stage, although it seems to reshape quicker. We also bought the Ergoflex mattress protector which fitted perfectly.
And the verdict: well, we loved it - great night's sleep and none of the issues about "sinking into sand" which we had heard with other memory foam mattresses. Heat? Ok very slightly warmer where the mattress touches the body, but not really noticable (and it is summer...).
All in all very pleased and would certainly recommend to others.
