Casper Mattress Review – A mattress in a box!

When looking for a new bed, one of the biggest hassles I have found is going to various stores, sitting on a number of beds, and testing them out. Usually, they are too soft, or to hard, some you can feel the springs in, others you may feel like you sink way too much, I have learned I absolutely hate that!

I began hearing about the Casper mattress, this new company that has such great reviews from customers and the best part to me was, no going in to test the bed at a store. Instead, it would be shipped to me with a 90-day money back guarantee. No more sitting on beds I had no idea who else already tested them out before me.

When the Casper mattress arrived, it was neatly packed in a small box that easily fit in the doorway, and was wheeled right to the bedroom. I’ve never had a mattress delivered that easily before, and installation was simple too. I was a little worried how the mattress would look and feel like after coming out of such a tiny box for a big item, but it actually came out looking great, and it was comfortable too!

With the three-layer design, it is a great bed for most people. It has a 7-inch layer that gives it cushion, with two more layers that are 1.5-inch think for comfort. The latex layer is very comfortable and conforms to your body for a great night of sleep.

Installation was just as simple as getting it, I simply opened the box, pulled the bag out and used the letter opener that was supplied to cut open the plastic bag and release the mattress. Once I got the plastic off, it began to unfold and within seconds it was springing to life. It unfolded, got larger, and the mattress was ready to be positioned just minutes from opening the box.


  • It’s easy to order and receive
  • Delivery took roughly a week
  • Easy to open, unpack and install in just minutes.
  • 90-day refund policy


  • If you’re the type of person that likes to test before buying, there is no in-store option.

Overall, I think my approach for mattress shopping has been changed forever. I will no longer go in and test beds and spend my time trying them out when I can have them shipped directly to me, test them out and either love them, or send them back. I am glad to say, the Casper has not been returned, and gives me a great night of sleep every day!

What is the best pillow ever?

What is the best pillow ever?

Are you not getting enough sleep? The problem may be your pillow. A bad pillow may have you tossing and turning all night and that just makes you really groggy the next day, but over time it can cause depression and even obesity. We managed to test as many pillows as possible to check for everything from stray feathers all the way down to those weird chemical smells while keeping in mind that a pillow needs to fill the gap between your head and neck and the mattress. Plus, it needs to assume that shape even when you change your sleeping position.

Posture Fit Back Sleeper Pillow by Sealy Posturepedic

This is a great pillow for under $40. It is like a giant marshmallow but in a good way. It is soft but firm and since it is hypoallergenic it only has polyester fibers that have a gusseted shape that allow for more support without it bunching up at the corners.

Classic Goose Feathers and Down Pillow by Eddie Bauer

This is a really good natural pillow for back sleepers. It really makes your head feel aligned with your spine. Many often exclaim that they no longer wake up with a crick in their neck. The pillow does come in firm and medium has an inner chamber filled with feathers and down that is then wrapped in down which provides you with plenty of support while you sleep.

Gel Fiber Side Sleeper Pillow by Beyond Down

This is an amazing pillow for a side sleeper. It is hypoallergenic and gives you the feeling of down without all the hassles of dealing with your allergies. It helps to reduce headaches and neck pain in a firm supportive way, but it is still quite soft. The best part, is that it is under $20. It has a 300 thread count cover that is super smooth and the pillow cradles you perfectly while you sleep.

Down Damask Pillow in Firm by L.L. Bean

This is a really great pillow that is made from 100% goose down. It really cradles your neck and head without feeling flat. It is quite thick and lofty and you really do not need to keep fluffing it at random times of the night. It is also cheaper than most goose down pillows coming in at under $140.

Deluxe Pillow by Primaloft

This is a unique stomach sleeper pillow. It has a very soft cotton cover and a really unique soft filling. It is really nice. This is a synthetic pillow that doesn’t make you feel that you have to sacrifice comfort. Many will find this pillow for under $50 but it does have different firmness’s that you can choose from. For this selection, we chose medium. The other types do range in price.

Extra Soft Duck Down Pillow by Downlite

Many people who are stomach sleepers are just looking for a pillow that is soft and squishy but still offers support. This is what you get with this pillow. You head will sink in perfectly and your neck feels cushioned. As a bonus, there isn’t any weird smell either.

Cannon Ventilated Contour Memory Foam Pillow Review

Cannon Ventilated Contour Memory Foam Pillow Review

So you find that you are not sleeping that great at night anymore, or your pillow is starting to wear out and you need a new one. You’re in the same boat that I was in a while back, and after doing research on all sorts of pillows, I came across the Cannon Ventilated Contour Memory Foam Pillow (formally the endless dream pillow)! Keep reading to find out why this budget pillow has become one of my favorite pillows, other than just saving me money.

If you do have a little extra to spend, you should consider the My Pillow.  You can find a great my pillow review here or try this link for another my pillow review.

This is the first area I was looking at, because I was shopping on a budget. While I did my research I came across pillows that were just a few dollars (Wal-Mart), but did not really get my attention, and some over $100, which was well out of my budget. I grabbed the Cannon around $25, which was right in my budget. This was great.


The second thing I looked at was the material type, and when I see it was memory foam I was happy as I have had good experiences in the past with memory foam pillows. They tend to be long-lasting, comfortable, and provide me with a great night of sleep. It was on its way to my shopping cart at this point, but I had to do some research first.

What I found

Other than being in my budget and memory foam, which I like, I am the type to research things first and I found people claiming great pressure resistance, which tells me it will not quickly go flat. It also came with a pillowcase of its own. It also includes a limited 3-year warranty to make things even better… In my cart it went!

When I got to finally test it out, I was surprised to see just how comfortable this memory foam pillow was for the price. While not quite the same as the more expensive memory foam pillows I have tried in the past, it did amazingly well within my budget, I got a great night of sleep and when I woke up, by neck did not hurt!

What is the best pillow ever?


  • Affordable price tag for being memory foam
  • Great pressure resistance
  • Includes pillowcase


  • Only size available is standard, no other options.


If you are looking for a memory foam pillow on a budget, and standard is fine then the Cannon Ventilated Contour Memory Foam Pillow is a great option. It is comfortable, and provides a great night of sleep on a low budget. I am glad that I bought it, and worth every penny as I no longer have neck pain or shoulder pain when waking up. Of course, the 3-year warranty is a plus as well.
