$249 Amazon Mattress vs Tempur-Pedic: Consumer Reports’ Hatchet Job

Consumer Reports tested and compared a $249 AmazonBasics mattress to a Tempur-Pedic LuxeBreeze.

The AmazonBasics bed won.

How does this happen? What does it mean for the mattress industry and for consumers? 

Is there a flaw in Consumer Reports’ testing protocol? Is it wrong to tell people which bed will best conform to their bodies when comfort is subjective? 

To us, it appears Consumer Reports is testing one specific measure, and not taking a wholistic view of mattress support, comfort, motion transfer, and overall performance.
