Factory Outlet Sleep Number ® 5000 bed
Sleep Number Model 5000 10yrs. old
I don't get it? Looking at reviews and seeing all the negativity on these mattresses confuses me. I've had my mattress for 10 years and is still as good as when I purchased it. The sleep number doesn't display on the controllers but you really don't need the number. I just pump up the bed and release pressure till it's comfortable. After ten years this is the only issue. One thing that people don't get is the recommended frame and box bottom. This mattress needs to be on a firm base. If it's not you will have issues. Don't skimp on the frame.

My husband and I bought this bed due to its price tag. We thought maybe we could get some better sleep but it has been anything but. We both have tried adjusting our numbers quite frequently and still can't seem to find our number. This bed is so uncomfortable. We actually put a 4" topper on top of it also with still no luck. We are wishing we never bought this bed. We bought this in November 2013 and thought we have given it adequate amount of time but still no such luck. It still is not comfortable by any means

5000, dual chambers -Owned this bed since Mar 2001
I have Fibromyalgia and after having a bad auto injury - I went from literally sleeping 1 hr at a time to 4 hrs at a time then eventually 8. It was really expensive at the time - total I spent - almost 4K. There weren't many models at the time, I believe it was 3 models total then. I've had to replace 3 air chambers total over 13 yrs. The first 2 were due to mold (manf defect) and the 3rd due to sudden leak. The first 2 were free replacement but the 3rd was prorated / discounted to $99.21. I have never had to replace the wireless remote. I have moved 4 times, I'm a pro at set up and tear down (8x total) it is easy. The last time however we decided to try a reg. bed frame self engineered to support and I must say it is a little different in the comfort. I really suggest utilizing all the select comfort components for MAX personal comfort. I LOVE MY bed. So much that I am pondering getting the newer models and goodies.
The ONLY con is the foam rib for the center. They have tried to fix this but it is not just what it should be. I love to cuddle and THIS is a major PITA especially when you have two different settings.
OVERALL: This bed is one of my best investments. Yes, investment. If I was just looking for a bed I would have gotten a regular one and suffered as I did all those other years. It had it's cons, sure I wished it would've been absolutely perfect, but then again, I remind myself, "What in life is exactly perfect made by man?".... NOTHING. Then when you consider that they were a newish brand company at the time and they have tried to make amends on defects and considering what I paid total VS: 13 years, $25 a month isn't that bad... Select Comfort / Sleep Number are pretty darn GOOD!!!!

We purchased this month a little over two months ago. My husband said for the first time in 7 years he was able to get a good nights rest. We have completely different opinions on the firmness of our mattress so we decided to go with sleep number. We liked the p5 but the cost was out of our budget so we found the factory 5000 bed. We absolutely love it so far!

Store sold this as if it were a P5
We tested out a P5 at the store and loved the Bed. Bought it that Day.
when we received the bed it was nowhere near as comfortable. The bed does not have that same comfort even with the 3 inch pad and the bottom support to lift the air chambers.
This will be the last purchase from this bed company because they do not deliver what was sold.
Do not believe them if they say "the only difference is the topper material is a different pattern.

This was by far one of the worst purchases I have ever made. Within the first 4 years the middle of the bed on both sides is sagging in the middle the remote broke and we had to purchase new ones. NEVER AGAIN!!

Dont try to cuddle
I bought this bed because at the store we tried the P5 and i didnt want to spend that much money at that time so they told me the 5000 outlet bed was the same bed just different cover WRONG. The P5 you couldnt feel the hump in the middle like you can in this bed. My sleep number is 25 and at 25 if i move i litterely hit the modular base, im not the samllest of guys but didnt think 200lbs would be a issue. If your thinking about this bed i would say NO if you like to cuddle with ur partner and be comfortable. They also said they would not deliver to Winter Haven FL which is very weird but the bed is easily built anyone with half a brain could build this bed and save the money.

I love, love, love my bed!
I have had my sleep number bed for about 8 years, moved it four times, and never had a problem with any of it's components. I recently had to buy a new remote as all of my stuff is in storage still, and not going to be unpacked for six months, so could find what box it was in...my bad, but they were so kind and gave me a great deal on one. Their customer service is awesome, and their product is top quality! Sleep quality is amazing... I hurt no more when I get up in the morning
