The surface of it is rather hard, almost slab-like; while everything advertised about the way it conforms to your exact body is true, it just didn't have that "ahhh, there's my sweet comfy bed" feeling.

A Critical Eye On The Latest Mattress Technologies
Many manufacturers claim memory fom was first used by the NASA Space Program to boost sales for their memory bedding.
NASA never did use that basic material in the 1960s. NASA matress or space matress technology simply does not exist as such.

How can you check if your purchase as good as a original Tempur-Pedic bed? You can try the wine glass test, the egg test, or the fridge test.
