I have had my Hastens bed for 3 years now. I bought the 2000T Medium. I won't lie...it cost me some money. But I saved up for it, and it cost me about the same as it cost to buy my Honda Civic. I was looking for something reliable, as I had been having back pain. I am young, so the thought of kicking off my 30's with back aches was not worth it suffering the next 2/3 of my life in a crappy bed. Mind you, I hadn't been in the worst beds, just not the beds for me. When I moved to Seattle, and didn't have AC for the first time ever I felt the clammy feeling of sleeping in a latex/chemical vat along with the back pain I had been feeling for a couple years. Wow, was that a disgusting feeling. I had visited a Hastens Store once on a trip to the Netherlands, and my did I start craving that bed. Low and behold a Hastens store is in Seattle...I visited, and visited again. I fell in love. With my bed. I can say I don't own a lot of things, and I am still paying on my car, but the fact that I wake up rested and rejuvinated is worth the money I spent. To everyone who complains about the price, you just don't get it, and you will never know the gloriousness of waking up in a bed like this. My boyfriend is now converted as well and he is now saving for his own bed. Initially he told me this type of bed was not for him. He didn't like the looks of it, and said he would NEVER spend that kind of money on a bed. After a couple months of spending 1/2 his time at my place he realized his back was actually feeling much better in the morning after sleeping on my bed. He works a very labor intesive job, so the relief is really important. :-) Good luck to everyone on their bed search. Maybe it isn't for everyone...but this certainly isn't a luxury that is only afforded to the rich. It is a luxury that is available to those who want it, and value their sleep as the most important contribution to their day.
