Love My Performance Series p5 Sleep Number bed

by Jim S.
(North Idaho)

I have the King Size Performance Series p5 Sleep Number bed. Simply put; I love my bed. My wife and I bought it in 1998 or so, right after we got married. We bought it in the retail store that they had at the local mall. The staff was very helpful and they even let us make regular payments – kind-of like a layaway plan. When it was all paid for, it was quickly delivered to our home.


It is definitely the most comfortable bed I’ve ever owned. The bed I had before was much too hard and I would wake up in the middle of the night with my arms numb. I would have to rise to get the blood flowing again it was so bad! The sleep number bed eliminated that problem – with a setting of 45 I slept great.

Sometimes I overdo it physically, and the adjustable setting of the bed really helps. On a few occasions I’ve gone to bed with a sore back, adjusted the firmness of my bed accordingly and the next morning woke up as good as new.

The bed is pretty old at this point, but has held up quite well. All of the electronics and the pump work fine. The only problem I have had is that after moving across the country, my wife’s side has developed a small leak so that when she wakes up in the morning, her firmness is down 5 – 10 points. She doesn’t mind since she likes her side very soft anyway but one of these days we will replace that side or maybe upgrade the bed.

When I say upgrade, we definitely intend on getting another Sleep Number bed when we need one. We both agree that it is the best bed we’ve ever owned – by far. We’ve also talked about getting the best quality pad available. When we bought our bed in 1998, I wanted to by the classic series, but my wife convinced me to upgrade and get the p5 with the better pillow top. I’ve learned that a good pillow top is invaluable and well worth the cost, so next time we will get ALL the bells and whistles.

If I were to give the bed a rating, I would have to give it a 4 out of 5. I think the main reason is a bit of disappointment in the leak it has developed. The only other bed we have considered is a Dux bed, but we could not justify the large price difference without a corresponding quality difference. We love our p5 Sleep Number bed and we plan on being a life-long Sleep Number customer.

No other bed I can imagine myself sleeping in

by Tyler M.
(Ketchikan, AK)

I recently purchased the Sleep Number Performance Series P5 Queen-size bed at the Sleep Number store in Seattle (this past October). I tested the bed while I was down there for a recent vacation and fell in love with it. I know that the $1700 price tag can be scary, but trust me, it is definitely worth it.

There was no other bed I can imagine myself sleeping in after testing that particular bed. Now, the other models were nice though; however, they did not compare to the P5 series. What I like about the P5 series is the 11” of pillowtop with breathable fabric, the 2” of PlushFit foam and the DualAir technology. The bed contours all of my curves (and I am no small gentleman either).

Before my lower left side of my back would tense up multiple times during the evening. Now, with the P5, I have had no issues whatsoever with lower left back pain. It has all but disappeared. Being able to adjust the firmness of my bed has been a miracle and a life saver. My wife likes her side a little more soft than I do, I prefer the firmness that the mattress provides.

I have used the bed for around 3 months with no issues. Actually, I have been telling all of my friends that they need to purchase one of these beds. It has really saved me from a lot of back pain and overall discomfort. I wake up refreshed and energized, ready to start my day.

In the past, I would hate getting out of bed due to my overall pain and discomfort. I have had no problems with the bed, everything works great just like the people at the store promised.

There have been no broken pieces and I cannot imagine this bed breaking anytime soon. It is built to last. I can envision myself having this bed for 10+ years at the current pace. It is built like it was made in America (cannot confirm that however). But you understand what I mean, built like things were built in the past (strong, durable, not cheaply made).

This bed is fabulous. On a scale of 1-5, I would give it a 15. On my previous bed, I was tossing and turning…not anymore! I would buy everyone this mattress (if I had the money). I just want to get the word out to everyone that this is the mattress you all need. It was by far worth the investment.

Sleep Number p5 Bed

by Gary

My wife and I had been sleeping on a mattress that was 12 years old up until January.

We have had a Sleep Number bed for 2 weeks now, it is the best investment I ever made, sounds pretty weird saying that about a mattress, but I could not believe how well I have been sleeping, I believe the Sleep Number mattress to be an excellent product.

When we were in the market for the mattress we tested out a lot of models for a 2 day period, it was an odd shopping experience laying down on a mattress in every store we visited that day, but I am glad that we shopped around, I am very happy with the purchase of our Sleep Number bed from Select Comfort.

If any one out there is looking for a new mattress do yourself a favor and check out the nearest store that sells the sleep number, you will be extremely happy with your purchase, and it really does appeal to all sleep styles with the adjustable settings on both sides of the bed...

p5 bed was a decent investment

by Bryce C.
(Florida)

To be very honest this wasn't my first choice in beds because I had felt like for the high price it would definitely be a huge scam (or at least a huge investment) and when I eventually did give in I had buyer's remorse.

I hesitantly purchased the p5 series queen size sleep number bed and at first I wasn't very happy with it due to the fact that I felt the need to purchase a pillow top for it which would have cost me another 60 dollars or more on top of the price I'd already paid.

It took me around maybe a month or two before I really got comfortable using it. I guess it was just buyer's remorse kicking me in the shin. When I got over the anxiety of the purchase I finally realized I made a decent investment for myself and my sleep heath. I have been sleeping a lot better and much less sleep is needed as well as my back pain started to subside which I was grateful for.

Especially what with being on my feet so often at work and home with my son. It is only just a little more firm than I am used to but our body was not really made to sleep on a cloud of pillows like most people seem to think nowadays and this feels like it really has helped me to straighten my back rather than conform to it and solely support the bad adjustment.

I haven't had my bed for forever to really judge it's durability but as far as I can tell everything looks and feels fantastic on that level. If I were to give this bed a star rating it would definitely be a 5. I'm very pleased and sleeping better than I had previously been on an old foam mattress that I had only paid maybe $300 for.

It wasn't the best quality or the best decision/investment but I was desperate for a cheaper solution to my spring mattress which would dig into my hips at night and I'd end up tossing and turning for hours.

I really hope the bed continues to make me feel that warm comfy feeling for years to come as I have not been disappointed since my initial reaction in the purchase I have made in a bed. Anyone who is hesitant to purchase this bed because it feels firm in stores should definitely try it out for a month. -

Sleep Number Bed - King Size

We've had our Sleep Number Bed for almost 11 years now and we still love it.

It has been through A LOT of moves and was even in storage for nearly a year and still worked fine.

We have a twenty year warranty for it and there was an air leak at one point 3 years into it.

They replaced the pump and tubes and when that didn't work they replaced both bladders at no additional cost at all.

So basically we got a new bed for free.

Sleep Number Bed King

by Ellen
(Minneapolis, MN, USA)

My husband and I bought our sleep number bed 7 years ago. We have had to replace the valves numerous times (no charge) and recently, we had to replace one of the air mattresses. The machine turned on by itself while we were not home and blew a hole in the mattress.

To replace the amtress, we had to pay $100. We could have bought a traditional mattress (high end) for the price we paid for this bed and it would have lasted 20 years. DO NOT buy a sleep number bed!
