Sleep Number ® Down Alternative Pillow
Great for a little while
Bought 2 Firm & 2 medium support pillows back in September after we bought our new sleep number bed, pillows were great for a little over a month but now it's flat and does not offer much support. No better than $20 pillows from other stores.

I bought this pillow in a weeks time I took it back to the store the pillow lost it's support the salesman said yes it was smaller then the other pillow on display. So I purchased coolfit pillow when I woke up I still had a sore neck and shoulder pain the salesman said that would be a better fit for me. Now I have a pillow I don't like because I can't exchange it. Very disappointed in there pillows.

Pillow is already lumpy
I bought 2 soft alternative down pillows 29 days ago. They are already lumpy and very uncomfortable to sleep with. I was going to exchange them (since it has been less than 30 days), but Sleep Number does not have any highly rated pillows. Their down pillows do not have any ratings, and cost over $150. I am definitely not going to spend extra money on a pillow that I am not confident will be comfortable for the long term. I am very disappointed that the pillows I bought are already lumpy, and they were not cheap!

Very average, very expensive.
I usually buy pillows at a big box store for less than $10. Since I like them thick and very firm, I have to replace them in 4-5 months. My wife gave me this one for as a gift thinking it would really last. I had to replace it 4 months later. The replacement cost $8 and is performing every bit as well as Sleep Number's.

I like this!
My first Select Comfort pillows. I got one soft for sleeping (I was used to down so I like soft) and one in medium for propping. I have them covered with the wonderful cool pillow protectors and am very happy!

Surprised to read the bad reviews
I have had these pillows for quite a few years, at least 5, and have not had the problems described by others. We wash and dry our pillows in our Bosch Nexxt washer and dryer regularly and have not noticed any reduction in loft.
The reason I am writing this review is because my daughter called today to find out what kind of pillows they were so she could get some. When I checked the website I found these bad reviews.
I can't explain why others have had problems. Maybe it is just a matter of caring for them properly.

Trial Period is Too Short
i bought two King pillows in medium firmness for my wife for Christmas. She gets neck pains while she sleeps and has been looking for a good pillow for a while. She received them at Christmas and put them on our bed in early January. In late January, they were starting to swish down and not offer much support. Called today and we missed the 30 day trial period, so no return or partial credit. I think for $100 pillows the return period should be longer. Going to order two firm pillows and try them out with a time clock running, so we can return if we do not love them.

Pillow Flattens Quickly
I've purchased 2 Down Alternative pillows on separate occasions and both in the medium height. I've had headaches throughout my life, and most have occurred in the mornings after I wake. These down alternative pillows are the most comfortable pillows I've used and they have helped me wake up in the mornings without headaches.
That being said, I believe the down alternative filling is made of poor quality and does not hold its plushness well at all. I bought my first pillow and had to buy a replacement after a year. Roughly 9 months after, the second pillow flattened and once again, I had to purchase a THIRD pillow. Though I made the switch to the down alternative Pillowology pillow, I found that the Pillowology pillow lost its plushness in less than a year as well. The pillows were all very lofty when I first purchased them, however, they quickly flattened. This leads me to believe that the down alternative filling doesn't last very long and that I'd have to replace the pillow every 9-12 months.
Though I am disappointed with the quality of the product and it's inability to withstand any wear and tear, the pillow is comfortable which is why I've purchased 3 of them. I can't recommend this pillow as it has poor value for someone who is looking for a comfortable and long lasting pillow.
