Casper Mattress 26 Feb 2016 05:05 #1

When I was looking at the questions section on the Alexander Hybrid page it actually specifically compares the Beautyrest Black with the Alexander Hybrid. Can anyone on here actually confirm that to be true?

I fell in love with the Beautyrest but it is almost double $$$ what I intended to spend. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Helllo!
Well, I personally would recommend the Casper mattress, if only because it can meet expectations of most people.

Hi Torin,

I switched your post into a new topic of its own since it had nothing to do with the topic you posted in.

I'm not sure why you would be qualified to recommend any mattress for someone else or your knowledge about mattresses or mattress materials but I'm assuming that you purchased a Casper and you like it ... although this would have nothing to do with whether your mattress would be suitable or comfortable for anyone else.

You seem to have also "bought" their marketing story along with your mattress.

I don't think so but since I'm not really sure if I was right to post it there I guess it's your call in the end.

Well, if we're talking qualifications as in official certifications then no, I'm not qualified to recommend anything at all. It just so happens I once had a job as a mattress salesman. Granted, that was quite some time ago and I had been working for four months. Doesn't make me a pro, but still...

I guess? The video I've seen on Amazon is very convincing.

Hi Torin,

If you worked as a mattress salesperson then you would know that there is no such thing as a single mattress that is the "best choice" for the specific needs and preferences of most people. If there was then you would only have been selling one mattress in each budget range. You can also read more about what I call the "simplified choice" mattresses and some of their marketing claims in post #1 here . There is also more about the Casper mattress in post #2 in the same topic.

As sad as it may be ... most of the members here that have spent an hour or two on this website or reading the mattress shopping tutorial will also know more about mattresses and mattress materials than the large majority of the sales people in the mainstream industry that sell them.

One of the most frequent comments that I also make in my replies on the forum is this one ...

While other people's comments about the knowledge and service of a particular business can certainly be very helpful ... I would also keep in mind that you are the only one that can feel what you feel on a mattress and I would be cautious about about using other people's suggestions or experiences or reviews on a mattress (either positive or negative) or review sites in general as a reliable source of information or guidance about how you will feel on the same mattress or how suitable or how durable a mattress may be for you and in many if not most cases they can be more misleading than helpful. A mattress that would be a perfect choice for one person or even a larger group of people may be completely unsuitable for someone else to sleep on (even if they are in a similar weight range). In other words ... reviews in general won't tell you much if anything about the suitability, quality, durability, or "value" of a mattress for any particular person (see post #13 here ).


I guess? The video I've seen on Amazon is very convincing.


A video won't tell you much if anything about whether a mattress will be a suitable "match" for you in terms of comfort, firmness, or PPP (Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and your own Personal preferences) or the quality and durability of the materials inside a mattress.
