Sleep Like The Dead is a sleep product research website that compiles user reviews of mattresses categorized by brand, mattress type and material. Consumer Reports also offers comprehensive mattress reviews to its subscribers.
Sleep Like The Dead offers readers access to shopping guides; mattress type and brand comparisons; and comparisons of mattress retailers. The website claims not to receive any form of compensation from the mattress manufacturers or retailers it features. Sleep Like The Dead provides unbiased comparisons of mattress brands such as Bed in a Box, ComforPedic, Sealy Posturepedic and Sleep Innovations.
Sleep Like The Dead states that over 20,000 different consumers have contributed to its mattress rating system, which aggregates these reviews into simple percentages of owner satisfaction. Consumer Reports hires its own testers and researchers to determine the quality of the products it reviews. Consumer Reports provides subscribers with buying guides and mattress ratings informed by tests performed in controlled conditions at its product research facility.
Consumer Reports warns customers that mattress manufacturers often superficially modify their products for different retailers. These retailers then call the functionally identical mattresses by different names to confuse customers. This makes it difficult to shop by comparison without referring to a dedicated mattress review service.
