    Over the past 10 years or so, i have been sleeping every nite on this bed. No complaints for comfort. Easy to use internal air pump.

    My problem came at the 1 year to 6 month point.

    Leaks started- in the 1999 to 2014 era, about one failure a year, which i patched till i gave up and purchased a new one. The under $ 50 price did not hurt and i dealt.

    In 2016, however the “time to death” was just past 6 months and i switched to a Serta.

    If you don’t use it daily, i’d say the Intex was a fine purchase.

      I agree, Bobby, we’ve also seen a decline in quality and there’s only a handful of Intex models listed as our top choices in the guides. One of the is the Intex Comfort Plush – we haven’t seen any changes with that one and it’s currently in the TOP 10 best air mattresses and one of the best budget choices.
