Compare Sleep Number i8 v Personal Comfort A8

WARNING: Sleep Number doesn't want you to see this video! Sleep Number also doesn't let you look inside their beds when you go into their store. Sleep Number sued us because they wanted us out of the number bed market. Guess what... they lost that lawsuit and they lost it badly. After you watch this video you will see why they wanted us out of the market.

This side by side comparison of the Sleep Number i8 bed versus the Personal Comfort A8 bed is a great way to compare these two number beds before you buy. We recommend you do your homework and research before making the investment into an air adjustable number bed.
