after much research and embarrassing mattress testing in many stores, we purchased the royal pedic latex mattress with the quilt top, the three inch topper and, most importantly, the adjustable base (think spa bed, not hospital bed, but i'll get to that later). this bed is so comfortable...very little movement when your partner moves, but no 'sinking' feeling like tempurpedic or other foam mattresses. we definitely sleep better. in fact, prior to getting the mattress, we'd stopped setting the alarm because our two dogs always woke us up before we needed to get up. the first morning with the new bed, we overslept because the dogs slept in! we now have to set an alarm each night because the dogs actually sleep later in this bed. seriously.
the most comfortable bed ever

as far as the adjustable base, it is fantastic. we love it for reading and watching tv in bed or for working on our laptops. my husband has a bad back from time to time, and adjusting the bed at those times gives him tremendous relief (into a zero gravity position). it is fabulous for drinking or eating in bed when you are sick. we have each been amazed at how often we adjust the bed and how convenient it is. we agree that we will never have an ordinary flat bed again (we are in our thirties). fyi, the king comes with two remotes and each side functions independently. also, i recommend getting the 'wallhugger' type which prevents you from moving backward and forwards in the room (read the royal pedic literature to better explain this). we often joke that next to fire and the wheel, this bed is the best invention! we could not be happier.
