this has had bad reviews...

Hot fom me, nice one.
#4
theres a useful link of mse about silent night and they are supposed to be terrible so although a hot price voted cold from me
#5
Sorry, but Silent night are the one of the worst bed brands possible. People think they are great as they are so well known from their amazing advertising campaigns. My advice is never by a bed from Argos or Silent Night if you want quality.

Decent memory foam costs more than that to make, so shows the quality. Also 3cms is not enough for full benefits. It's okay on some beds, it's added to some firm beds at 3cms along with other fillings, more for comfort than memory benefits.
#6
Hot from me - nice find - good price. :-)
#7
There are around elsewhere for that price, nothing wonderful about them either. Seems pretty much the going rate, although you can certainly pay more in many places!

Neutral vote for me.
#8
I have just bought a similar one from Homebase (their own make) and it was £139.99 and is extremely comfortable for the money. :thumbsup:

Voted cold because it can be bought cheaper elsewhere. It is FOAM for pity's sake! Also - this would be horrible sweaty!
#12
I have this mattress or one like it - it's about 6 years old now, and it is very comfortable. We paid alot more than this at the time.

So for this price, I would say HOT.

Our is a Kingsize though :-)

You forgot to say it was "memory foam". Maybe you do need one:p
#14
I paid over £500 just for my memory foam mattress. and its worth the price. these cheaper ones might be better than not having one at all, but aren't as good as the good ones.

Where?
I can see it for the same price in many places, but not actually anywhere cheaper
Makes me wonder it is one of those products that the manufacturer is controlling the final price as they are all so similar!

Someone has usefully mentioned a similar own-brand version - if this one is available cheaper it would be good to be able to compare.

What is the reasoning behind thinking it would be sweaty? As far as I can see that often depends on the type of cover, what is the problem with this one? Have you tried modern memory foam mattresses, or the older types for that matter? Are you aware of the differences or pros and cons between different types?

Or is it just the usual outburst, without any knowledge or experience?
One-line unqualified and unjustified statements without any backup or information or experience are ruining this site :-(
#17
I also have the memory foam that fit's in your shoes, it's a good idea to put 2 in each shoe for extra comfort as they soon flatten down.
#18
I have this exact matress bought from t j hughes for £199.99 last year and i have to say it is very very comfortable and i get a great sleep on it, well worth the money in my opinion.
#19
hi, can anyone tell me if the double mattress would fit a 140x200cm ikea bed i'm planning to buy?

i think ikea use european bed sizes while a uk double mattress would be 137x191cm, right?

cheers, marty

Nice answer - touché! :thumbsup: Maybe I do need some memory aids!

Seriously though, foam is foam is foam. I slept (or tried to) on one of these in the USA and was in a sweat all night in spite of the air conditioning. Maybe it ws just me, but I wouldn't wish a night like that on anybody!

You need a "pocket sprung with memory foam on the top" mattress for that. Did my research :thumbsup:

COLD these are cheaper in Costco at the moment. I was looking at a King Size for £218 inc VAT

That'll be just lovely on a 4'6" bed, and no bargain at all once you have paid for membership and travelled half way round the country to find a branch!
#25
I've just bought a memory foam topper on amazon for £84.95. 7.5cm thick (3 inches for you old imperial types) and works beautifully. I realise you get what you pay for, but I didn't need what is effectively a brand new mattress, just a topper (as the name says). Thanks for taking the time to put it on here though, and the comments helped me know i made the right choice!

Personal experience gained from 6 years in the States where these mattresses are fairly common. I think it is rather patronising to say the folks on here don't have any experience when you have no knowledge of them at all. :)

No... we don't have any knowledge of you - dead right, that's the point, you come out with a one liner saying precisely nothing, as if it is the wisdom of ages carved on stone tablets. we still have the same level of knowledge of you, none - even in this reply, you don't expand on what you said, or rather didn't say the first time :-( They are pretty common here too, so what?

A post saying "this is bad" is less use than saying nothing, and just as useless as cold voting without explanation.

HUKD is littered with deals saying this is cheaper elsewhere (without a link); these are rubbish; I think I once saw one of these somewhere once for XX amount cheaper etc etc. And people voye based on the messages left. This kind of behaviour is, well.............................

I wish people would vote on the price of the product and leave it at that.

I post a load of CD's / DVD's for example and so many people vote cold 'cos they think it's a rubbish band or film.

NO!!!!!!!!!! If you want to review CD's/DVD's go to a review site.

If you want to find out where things are cheaper or a bargain come to HUKD and treat it as such. That is what the rules state.

If a product is listed on HUKD and someone has had a bad or good experience with it, then by all means leave a message to that effect. But, I 100% agree with you. Empty comments are as pointless as cold voting for no reason, or explanation.

Unlike others on this thread I can speak from genuine experience as I have one of these. Bought for about this price from Makro about 18 months ago (ie RRP is absolute nonsense), so probably just an OK deal here:

No, they are NOT sweaty!
Yes, they are very comfy, provided you like a firm matress (I do).
They are easy to transport as they come rolled up (but they are still very heavy!).
Takes 24hrs from unrolling to achieve full size - don't throw out the old one before collection!
There are different qualities - this is the basic one. I think the better ones have a better cover.
No, it won't suit your IKEA bed - if you buy bed from IKEA I think you are pretty much tied to their mattresses too.

One major caution: they are a little undersized (length and width) compared to traditional mattresses - this means that if you sit up in bed the mattress slides down and your pillow falls into the gap! Sounds amusing but it's a real nuisance. Silentnight customer service was excellent though (they dealt direct as it was from Makro, maybe not if from TJ Hughes?). They delivered and collected three more before resolving problem by supplying a better model which proved to be slightly longer.

See... that's a meaningful post. The language is not dead!

We can believe it, contradict it, talk about it or ignore it, but above all, it has substance :-)

First of all, I voted cold because I believe the item (or a licensed copy) can be obtained cheaper elsewhere, as mentioned by at least two other posters to this thread. At least I had the manners to post an explaination, as I hate it when folk vote cold without giving a reason. :oops:

Secondly, my remark about the product being sweaty was made to help others decide before buying. It is a reasonably expensive item (and one upon which you are going to spend an estimated third of your life). Also, I never used the eexpression "This is bad".

I have already stated that I have extensive experience with these things in the USA. I am only offering my opinion. If others find this product adds to a good night's sleep, then I am delighted for them - nothing like a good snooze for making life more bearable I say! :thumbsup:

Finally, this is a forum and we are all entitled to speak our minds as long as we do so in a civil fashion (which I always try to do). If I forgot part of the question when first answering, I apologise. I hope I have cleared up any misunderstandings now. :-D

Good point.
All memory foam is going to be sweatier than a normal sprung mattress......it's a dense piece of foam that you're lying on...so where does the heat go except straight into the mattress !
It's the exact same memory foam they use in manufacturing...just cut to the shape of a mattress and made fireproof and mouldproof. Cheaper stuff is less dense, expensive stuff is very hard...and you can't really guess what's best for you by looking at a photograph.

By definition, it "melts" to the shape of your body by absorbing your body heat and softening itself ...so more of your body is in contact with the mattress than a "normal" one...and that's what gives you the comfort.
The cheaper memory foam is less dense...so it gives more, you sink into it more....thus more of your body is touching it and you pour more heat inside it.
It's likely to be much hotter in summer, when you're warmer and the air is warmer.
On the other hand....in winter it stays warm once it's heated up.

One way to cut down the heat is to use a good quality fibre or silk mattress cover...so the heat is conducted away sideways from underneath you.
Another way is to use a thinner memory foam topper (through probably denser and more expensive) on top of a sprung mattress, so hot air can escape underneath it.

The best way is to go and try some...find out what you like and find what depth and density they are....then look for some the same.
Some people like hot beds, some like cold beds, some like soft mattresses, some hard? No two people are going to be the same.
It's only a hot deal if it suits the person who's buying it, regardless of cost.
It IS a fairly cheap deal....but if you find out what the density spec of the foam is...you could get it cheaper without the Silentnight name...it's the same chemical composition.

I would second the comment about pocket sprung with integrated memory foam - very possibly the best purchase I have ever made.

Yeah, glad to see it.

btw the "This is bad" was a generalisation, referring to the type of post I was criticising rather than specifically what you said.

For sweaty bedding materials, you need look no further than hollowfibre, used in quilts, duvets, pillows, bed fillings and upholstery. Dreadfully "hot" :-(
(I have moved on to Spelt or Buckwheat husk pillows for exactly this reason, they breathe much better - as do feather & down duvets - an absolute revelation: warm, without the hot feeling, although the feathers can be a bit *****ly! :-)

At least the realisation that memory foam can be hot is there - one reason seen mentioned in some reviews that firmer foam is necessary in some situations to avoid sinking in too far to minimise this - better/more expensive beds seem to address this using proprietary "breathing" fabrics for covers, and could well be something to look out for.

Incidentally, the Silentight brand name is NO great selling point to me - more a figment of over-advertising!

There are 2 branches in my area, one 5 mins down the road. They sell 4"6" mattresses aswell as 5" ones I was simply looking at a larger one each of the mattresses were cheaper. I voted cold as its available cheaper, no need to be **** about it!

Post the link for this at the cheaper price please:thumbsup:

Can't find any info off the website. Apart from they charge you £20 + VAT to join before you can buy anything off them. Seems a bit odd that.
