Select Comfort Sleep Number c3 Bed

by Rachel
(Hoffman Estates, IL. USA)

The very first night I used my new Select Comfort Sleep Number mattress, I noticed that my neck and back pain had nearly disappeared. Over the next few weeks, I felt better than I had in years.


I love the fact that you can adjust the firmness or softness with the click of a button. If you are reading in bed and need a firmer surface, change the setting and you are done!

If you have not gotten a decent night sleep in years because of your spouse/partner's mattress selection, you will now! You can choose how you want to sleep and wake up feeling refreshed.

Select Comfort Sleep Number Classic Series c3 Bed

by Lucy
(Milwaukee)

When I was on vacation in Los Angeles, two different mattress stores seemed to have taken over where car dealers used to reign. The owners of the two chains both yell at the cameras, rattle off a list of brands of mattresses, and then make all kinds of claims about how theirs cost less than the other company.

In that list of mattresses was the Select Comfort brand and the Sleep Number Classic Series c3 bed. When I got home, I checked out the local store - where no one shouts, but there are many mattresses - and Select Comfort seemed to make sense.

It was more expensive than some of the other brands - in fact, over $1,200 - but how could I resist promises like 'softer/firmer' and 'plush comfort'? Besides, I'm a technology freak, and the idea of a digital SLEEP NUMBER remote for comfort controlled at the touch of a button certainly piqued my interest.

It even came with a video in case I couldn't figure out how to use my new mattress. I asked if I could get a discount if I passed on the video. The salesman laughed, gave me a $10 discount and told me to keep the video.

My new Select Comfort mattress is the best thing that's happened to my back in years. It's winter, and I don't wake up with the aches and pains I thought were 'normal.' Turns out that a better mattress - and now I have one - can work better than aspirin or pain killers; and it's certainly healthier than taking drugs. Sorry Sealy Posture-Pedic. I've got good posture and less pain with my Select Comfort Sleep Number model.

I even like the video. Five-stars for this mattress, even though I was afraid I'd have sleepless nights worrying about paying for it. It didn't happen. You can't put a price on sleeping well.

Select Comfort c3

by Scott
(Chicago, IL)

I own a Select Comfort c3 bed and have owned it for about 14 months. Before talking about the bed, I can say that we had multiple issues with delivery from this company before they finally got all of the right parts and pieces delivered to our home. Once we had everything, assembly was fairly easy.

Having used a coil mattress, we were very happy with the comfort of this bed. It took about a month to dial in a number. I think it loses a bit of air over time but it really isn’t very much. One thing you should know is that when you set your number, you should remember how you were positioned on the bed. Changing positions will lead to different air pressures and the hand held remote will not be accurate.

Some people have reported mold problems with these Sleep Number mattresses. That has not been an issue for me. The bed’s semi-rigid sides have a fabric cover that is at the perfect height for our cats. Despite training, they give it a good clawing now and again. The fabric is tough and has not been damaged. A fact that our old box spring (a Sealy) could not match. It is a good bed, if a bit pricy, and I recommend it highly.

Select Comfort c3 / 5000 series

by April Sullivan-McArdle
(Murfreesboro, TN USA)

If I had this to do all over again, I would never have purchased my Sleep Number bed.

We have a king-sized mattress in the 5000 model (from what I can tell it's most comparable to the c3 series now). We purchased this bed December 2007.

We purchased the plastic foundation to place under the mattress. Because we don't have a headboard or foot-board, the mattress is constantly sliding around on the plastic foundation which, in turn, means that the cover for the plastic foundation is always moving.

The bed came with one dual remote - one remote that controls both sides of the bed. This may be acceptable with a queen-sized mattress, but king-sized beds should come with two controls - one for each nightstand - especially at the price you're paying.

The motor that blows up the mattress is noisy. There are quieter models available, but we were told that none of those quieter models would be compatible with our bed.

There is a divider between the two air mattresses. Inevitably, every night, someone ends up on top of the divider. It feels comfortable initially, but if you stay in that position and sleep on it all night long you will regret it in the morning.

Moreso - this entire bed is just an air mattress. Regardless of what softness / firmness I place the bed on, my hips sink into the mattress and I do not feel adequately supported.

If I had not had to pay the hundred-something-dollar shipping and handling charge to send this bed back, I would have during its probationary period. However, by the time we bought that bed my family wasn't in the position to shell out the extra money to get it sent back. If I had it to do all over again I would have eaten that cost and sent Select Comfort's bed back to them faster than I could say, "I hate this bed!"

I truly have buyer's remorse after purchasing this product.

I Absolutely Love The Classic c3!

by Valerie W.
(California)

I own the classic c3 and I absolutely love it. I actually want to get a better one because mine is older. I am so happy I switched to a sleep number bed I wish I switched a lot sooner. It is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. I love that when the bed gets older I don't start to feel springs poking my back.

I hate when I'm out of town and I have to sleep on a different bed other than mine. The back support is amazing. The first night I slept in my bed there was a huge difference. I slept all through the night I didn't wake up once.

For me it was just the right amount of softness. The only thing I dislike is how much I love it I hate that I don't sleep well unless I'm in my own bed. But other than that I don't dislike anything about my bed. I don't know the cost because it was a gift from my mother. I do know that it wasn't cheap but I would pay the money for another one when I need a new one. The sleep you get from this bed I worth the money you spend. It's holding up amazingly.

When you have a bed for about a year you start feeling the lumps and the springs. My bed you honestly can't even tell that I sleep in it. It still looks new. I own I king size bed and I give it five stars. I will most definitely be buying another sleep number bed but I think I will trying a different one though. But I'm not sure which one yet just because mine is still going strong and im sure by the time I'm ready for a new one there will be a bunch of new ones.

For those of you who are thinking about getting a sleep number bed I highly recommend getting one. Don't look at prices but the comfort in which you will be receiving. There is nothing better than getting a full nights sleep and starting your day off relaxed and rested.

So many times I use to wake up during the night tossing and turning not being able to get comfortable. Now I can confidently say that I have had the best sleep of my life. I am extremely greatful that my mother gifted me with this bed its changed my life!

Our c3 definitely gets five stars from us

by Tony B.
(Knoxville, TN)

When my fiancée and I were preparing to move into our new house in January of last year, we went shopping for a new bed. Neither of us had owned a Sleep Number bed before but we had seen the television commercials and were interested, as she has suffered with chronic back pain for years.

The folks at the local store here were very helpful when we came in and guided us through the process. We got our sleep numbers and tried the various models in the showroom, before settling on the Classic Series c3 queen mattress. The delivery date was set and the guys brought it and set it up, as promised.

As clichéd as it may sound, you really can tell the difference from the first night. Our sleep numbers lie at two ends of the spectrum: I like a really firm mattress and she would rather feel like she’s floating on a cloud. The DualAir setup allows us both to be happy; she doesn’t have to lay on my rock and I don’t have to sink into her cloud!

In each case, we get the back support we need; almost immediately her back pain diminished greatly. The remote is simple to use and allows you each to quickly adjust up or down from your usual settings if you feel like you want to.

We’ve enjoyed the bed for a year now and have had absolutely no problems with it. The Sleep Number bed is certainly an entirely different animal from conventional mattresses and we have been won over. We would certainly make the same purchase again and wouldn’t consider going to another brand when we are next in the market for a new bed.

Our c3 definitely gets five stars from us on comfort; the relief she feels in her back is amazing and I, being a light sleeper, have never slept more soundly. The quality of the bed deserves five stars as well. In a year’s worth of use, it has performed without fail and is as comfortable as it was on night one.

On the subject of price, you are going to have to pay something for this advanced technology and if you want to look solely at price, I can give four stars. However, the real question is value (what are you getting for your money) and that is clearly five stars as well.

I would certainly recommend Sleep Number beds to anyone; there’s a range of models in different price ranges with various features available.
