My wife and I bought a Sleep Number bed years ago and I haven't regretted it at all. The only thing that I have a tough time with is keeping the mattress topper in place. It seems like it takes it about 2 weeks for the whole thing to slide down the bed and become uncomfortable enough for us to move it back up. We're only talking about a 6 inch move, but the elastic sides might as well not even exist for all the good they do. It wasn't cheap, but I totally agree with you in that it was money well spent.
