Pros
- Extremely convenient regarding portability
- Highly regarded product and reputable in being an “as seen on tv” product and highly available to the consumer

Cons
- Much more expensive than a traditional air mattress
- Not a permanent solution for having a bed

This is a great bed for someone like myself on a tight budget and recently moved into a new place. It is also excellent for someone who frequently or even occasionally has a guest spending the night who needs a place to sleep. There are many other uses as well, especially for camping or going on vacation or a trip where an extra bed may be needed. Probably the best thing about the Aerobed is how conveniently portable it is.

When purchasing brand new in the store, it is a little on the heavy side, however the box really isn’t too big and will be able to fit almost anywhere. It even has a convenient carry handle. To continue the convenience, when you arrive at your destination assuming there is a source of electricity available, all you have to do is plug the cord into an electrical wall outlet and push a button down on the supplied remote control to inflate the bed.

And unlike most other air mattresses this one won’t over-inflate. Now say you want to go to your friend’s house and spend the night but you couldn’t convince him in the past to get the Aerobed. All you have to do is untwist the compression cap on the mattress while it is inflated and it will deflate. There is even a nice little travel bag that once the mattress is deflated, you can place it in the bag and take it with you anywhere you want to go!

And when you do inflate it only takes a couple minutes to fully inflate. Another great thing about the Aerobed is that since it is an “As seen on TV” product, you can find it locally in many department stores for cheaper than what is advertised on the aerobed website. I particularly got a great deal in getting mine at a local Walmart for around a hundred dollars.

My particular model is the largest made which is queen size, however they have twin and full which may be useful for kids or when multiple beds need to be used in confined spaces (the queen size aerobed is huge!). Lastly, the comfort level is almost the same as having a regular bed, you can barely tell the difference. And in using the supplied remote for desired inflation, you can customize the mattress to softer or firmer, whichever is suitable for you!
