Adjustable Beds Reviews

Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0 Review

This is our #1 recommended best adjustable bed for the reasons explained below.

This is our #1 rated best adjustable bed

 

Why does the Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0 get our highest recommendation?

Because it has the following high-end specs… and more…

  1. Pillow tilting:
    Today's best adjustable beds come with pillow tilting
    Today’s best adjustable beds are equipped with pillow tilting in addition to head and foot tilting

    Most adjustable beds have only head tilting and foot tilting. But the best of the best adjustable beds like the Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0 have an additional level of adjustment known as pillow tilting. Pillow tilting ensures that your head and neck are adequately supported by the adjustable frame. This is especially useful when you are watching TV, reading a book, having breakfast-in-bed, checking out President Trump on your new iPad/laptop etc. in the ‘sit-up’ position. Here’s another adjustable bed with pillow tilting. It is our #2 recommended adjustable base in the high-end list.

  2. Programmable/customizable memory positions: ‘ordinary’ adjustable bases have factory preset memory positions that are often not customizable according to your personal needs. In contrast, high-end adjustable frames like the Prodigy adjustable bed comes with programmable memory positions. This basically allows you to adjust your bed to your favorite custom ‘book reading’, ‘laptop using’, ‘lounging’ position etc. and to store that position in the remote’s memory. Once you’ve stored your favorite positions, you can recall that favorite position with the press of a single button (instead of pressing “up” and “down” buttons a hundred times, until you find that perfect spot). Factory preset vs customizable memory positions of Prodigy 2.0

  3. Wall hugging: On some of the basic models of adjustable bases, when the ‘head’ is raised, your whole upper body moves forward, away from the wall/headboard. This motion also brings you away from your nightstand. So, if you had a book or TV remote on the nightstand, now you’re going to have to reach backwards to grab them. This is not very convenient. This uncomfortable movement can also cause some back problems, and you don’t want that. We strongly urge you to stay away from electric beds that are not ‘wall hugger’ models. The L&P Prodigy 2.0 is a wall hugger model that will save your back! A picture is worth a thousand words. See below…

    Best wall hugging adjustable beds
    Adjustable beds with and without wall hugging
  4. Full body massage: we’ll be the first to admit that the quality of massage you get from these adjustable beds is nowhere near what you get from your professional masseur. But, hey, if you can’t afford a masseur on a daily basis, this head-to-toe bed massage will do wonders to relax you down after a hectic day’s work. The Prodigy 2.0 offers Dual, full-body massage. In other words, there are two separate ‘massage motors’ for upper and lower body therapeutic massage. In addition to ‘regular’ massage, it also comes with Wave action to relax those tired muscles from head to toe. You also have the option of 3 speeds (low, medium, high) for your therapeutic massage. Our best adjustable beds have high quality massge motors
  5. USB ports: one may think it’s silly to have USB ports on an adjustable bed. But, if you use ‘smart’ devices on a daily basis (smartphone, tablet computer/iPad, MP3 player/iPod, Bluetooth speaker, Bluetooth headphones etc.) that can be charged using USB ports, these can be really handy. The Prodigy 2.0 is the king when it comes to built-in USB ports. It has EIGHT USB ports in total (four on each side). That’s almost overkill; hey but you’ve certainly got nothing to lose with a few extra USB ports! Four port USB on one side of the adustable frame
  6. Two factory-preset positions: one-touch flat button and anti-snore position
  7. Lift capacity: has an industry-leading lift capacity of 850 pounds
  8. Miscellaneous ‘fancy’ specs of the Prodigy 2.0:
    1. Alarm clock (bed would vibrate without disturbing your partner on split-king models)
    2. Sleep timer (bed would automagically adjust itself to the ‘flat’ position from ‘TV watching position’ – once you fall asleep -)
    3. Under-bed lighting Under bed lighting of the top rated adjustable bed frames
    4. Illuminated/backlit remote controller
    5. ‘Whisper’ quiet motors
    6. High safety standards
    7. Adjustable leg height: 6 – 8 inches Prodigy 2.0 height adjustable legs
    8. Free fall during power outages
    9. Microhook retention system: instead of the messy mattress retaining bars. The 2017-2018 series of Leggett & Platt adjustable beds have done away with the mattress retainer bars because they get in the way when you’re making the bed. These L&P beds have a microhook retention system that ‘sticks’ to the mattress. This way, even without the retainer bars, the mattress won’t slide down when the head is raised.
    10. Smart bed: the bed can be adjusted using apps on your Android/Apple phone Pillow, Head and Foot tilting on smartphone Android App
    11. Bluetooth connectivity

You really couldn’t ask for a better adjustable bed than the feature-rich Leggett & Prodigy 2.0. Don’t forget to read our detailed review on the Leggett and Platt Prodigy 2.0 that looks at 25 Pros and Cons of this adjustable bed.

It is available with a FREE 10″ Mattress OR 12 inch gel mattress depending on your preference.

Reverie 8Q adjustable bed

Reverie 8Q Adjustable Bed Review

The Reverie 8Q is our #2 recommended adjustable bed frame. It ranks right behind the Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0. The Reverie 8Q foundation has the following major specs.

  1. Pillow tilting (in addition to head and foot tilting)
  2. 4 customizable memory positions
  3. 10-speed dual body therapeutic massage
  4. Wall-hugging. However, the image below will show you that the Reverie 8Q’s wall hugging is NOT as good as that of the Prodigy 2.0 Prodigy vs Reverie Wall Hugging Comparison
  5. Three factory-preset memory positions: anti-snore, zero gravity and one-touch flat Reverie 8Q remote controller
  6. 4 mattress retainer bars: before Leggett & Platt introduced the Microhook retention system, all adjustable beds had mattress retaining bars. Most of them had just one at the foot of the bed to prevent the mattress from sliding down when the head is raised. But, Reverie beds always had 4 retainer bars at the 4 corners which kept the mattress in place very well. However, this also means that you’ll have to work around them when making the bed (to work the fitted sheets under and through them) and that can be irritating sometimes!
  7. Smart bed: there are custom Reverie smartphone apps that you can use to play with the bed
  8. Alarm clock and sleep timer thanks to smartphone apps Reverie smartphone controlled bed adjustments
  9. 1 USB port on the remote stand
  10. 1 A/C outlet on the remote stand
  11. Bluetooth
  12. Under-bed lighting
  13. 3 – 8 inch height-adjustable steel legs Reverie bed's adjustable legs
  14. Backlit remote controller: nowadays, a standard feature with best electric beds

Reverie 9T Adjustable Base Review

Reverie 9T Adjustable Bed Review

The Reverie 9T is one of the sleekest and most aesthetically pleasing adjustable beds of 2018. It has plenty of great features; the one negative point that kept it from being our #1 rated adjustable bed is its lack of pillow tilting.

Here are the major Pros of the Reverie 9T foundation:

  1. Looks – to me, it’s the best looking adjustable bed of modern times. The deck-on-deck design and its furniture-style, curved bottom deck does the trick for me.
  2. Lumbar support
  3. FIVE memory positions – 2 customizable + 3 pre-set positions
  4. Wall hugger
  5. 3D massage feature
  6. Beautiful wireless remote with digital guage
  7. Under-bed night light

Here are the major CONS of the Reverie 9T foundation:

  1. Lack of pillow tilting
  2. Expensive price tag

We have a detailed review of the Reverie 9T elsewhere. Please refer to it if you’re seriously interested in purchasing a Reverie 9T bed.

iDealBed 4i Custom Adjustable Bed

Idealbed 4i Custom Adjustable Bed Review

First things first… iDealBed is not a manufacturer of adjustable beds. iDealBed simply puts their brand name on certain models of Leggett & Platt and Reverie adjustable beds. The iDealBed adjustable beds seems to have a few modifications to their original models from L&P and Reverie, but by and large, they’re the same. The most significant difference is on the price tag. The iDealBed models are much cheaper than the ‘original’ branded version.

The Major Pros of the iDealBed 4i Custom

  1. It’s manufactured by Leggett & Platt; no need to worry about the unheard of brand name
  2. Designed and engineered in the USA
  3. 850 lb weight lifting capacity (that’s one heck of a powerful motor)
  4. ‘Ultra quiet’ motor
  5. 3-speed and 3-mode (wave, pulse, continuous) massage
  6. Delivered to your doorstep, all pre-assembled. No need of fancy tools to make it stand up
  7. 3 factory pre-set memory positions – Zero Gravity, Anti-Snore, and Flat
  8. 2 customizable memory positions
  9. Raise the head section up to 70° and the foot section up to 45°
  10. Wireless back-lit remote (doesn’t look pretty)
  11. 4 USB ports
  12. Under-bed night light

The Major Cons of the iDealBed 4i Custom adjustable bed

The following 3 specs are generally only found on the most high-end luxury adjustable beds and you shouldn’t be surprised that the 4i doesn’t come with them

  1. It lacks pillow tilting
  2. It doesn’t come with wall hugging
  3. It’s not a deck-on-deck design

We have done a detailed iDealBed 4i Custom review elsewhere on Bedroom Solutions. If you’re seriously considering this model, I highly recommend you check that out.

Leggett & Platt Premier Series

Leggett and Platt Premier Furniture Style Adjustable Bed

The Leggett & Platt Premier series adjustable beds have the highest-end specs one could ask for from an adjustable base. However, the customer reviews on this bed aren’t very encouraging and therefore, we do not recommend it anymore. However, you’re welcome to visit a nearby mattress store, see it with your own eyes and to make a decision.

Update November 2017: Due to the poor consumer ratings on Leggett and Platt Premier Series bed, we have removed this model from our list of top 10 adjustable beds.

Here’s a list of the features of the Premier Series Furniture Style Adjustable Base

  1. Pillow tilting
  2. Wall hugging
  3. Up to 7 programmable memory positions
  4. Full body massage with wave action and pulse mode
  5. Four factory preset memory positions which can be overwritten if you don’t like them
  6. A tablet remote controller
  7. Smartphone controllable
  8. Alarm clock, sleep timer etc. on the remote tablet
  9. 2 USB ports either side (4 in total)
  10. 1 A/C outlet on either side
  11. Underbed lighting
  12. Bedroom scenes via “LP Connect”
  13. “LP Sense” extra security feature
  14. 4-inch square-shaped wooden legs on ‘furniture design’ or 6 – 10-inch long, height-adjustable steel legs on ‘foundation design’
  15. Deck-on-deck design – suits best if you plan on using this as a stand-alone bed without a frame
  16. Designed, Engineered and Assembled in the USA

Really, you couldn’t ask for more from an adjustable bed and it’s a real pity that this bed has not lived up to the expectations (at least according to the customer reviews on Amazon.com)

We hope you decided to go with a high-end adjustable base; hopefully the Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0, our #1 adjustable bed. However, if you found them to be too expensive or the extra specs unnecessary for your purpose, please check out our mid-range adjustable foundations

Leggett & Platt S-Cape 2.0 adjustable bed

Leggett and Platt S-Cape 2.0 2017 Model

Even though this ranks overall 5th in our list, it’s the best model in our mid-range category. The S-Cape 2.0 was released in 2017 and is still very new for 2018. It has almost all the features of the high-end adjustable frame of Prodigy 2.0 except a few features like pillow tilting.

Here’s a breakdown of the major features of the Leggett and Platt S-Cape 2.0 power foundation

  1. NO Pillow tilting; the S-Cape 2.0 only has head and foot tilting. If you need pillow tilting, you need the Prodigy 2.0
  2. It has great wall hugging (the bed glides back about 8-9 inches towards the nightstand/headboard)
  3. It has 2 programmable memory positions and 3 factory preset memory positions on its remote controller Leggett and Platt S-Cape remote controller
  4. It has full body, dual-motor massage with regular and wave options of therapeutic massage
  5. NO messy mattress retainer bars. It has the newest Microhook retention technology which holds the mattress in place even without the retainer bars

    Legget and Platt S-Cape 2.0 microhook retention
    The two whitish horizontal stripes you see on the foundation indicate the microhook retention system
  6. Wireless, backlit, sleek remote controller
  7. Smartphone controllable
  8. Under-bed night lighting available
  9. Four adjustable legs (adjust from 6″ to 10″ in height as you please)
  10. The remote controller has a ‘Lock’. Once locked, the bed will not move ‘up and down’ due to accidentally pressing the wrong buttons. Especially if you fall asleep with the remote on the bed, your turning and twisting during sleep can accidentally press the wrong buttons on the remote transforming the bed to the TV watching position from a sleeping position. ‘Lock’ your bed using the ‘lock’ button on the remote and sleep with complete peace of mind!
  11. The S-Cape 2.0+ has 8 USB ports (4 either side). NOTE: The ‘regular’ S-Cape does NOT have any USB ports; only the S-Cape 2.0+ has ’em.USB ports on the sideboard
  12. Anti-snore position on remote controller
  13. The S-Cape 2.0 also comes with a lift capacity of 850 Lbs
  14. It is available as 3 sub-models
    1. The foundation style S-Cape 2.0: this is the basic and cheapest model
    2. The furniture style S-Cape 2.0: this is the deck-on-deck style; don’t buy this if you’re planning on using this inside your existing bed frame because the frame will cover the beautiful bottom deck
    3. The S-Cape 2.0+ : this has some extra features like USB ports which the other versions lack

The L&P S-Cape 2.0 is so feature-rich that it deserves to be a ‘HIGH-END’ adjustable bed. However, because it lacks the luxury feature, pillow tilting, we ‘downgraded’ it to the ‘mid-range’ category. However, do not be mislead by that; this is a super-good adjustable bed for anyone that doesn’t need pillow tilting.

Classic Brands Adjustable Comfort Base

Classic Brands Adjustable Comfort Power Foundation Review

This is a relatively newly introduced adjustable frame. It is very popular because of its attractive price-tag; however, be informed that you’re getting what you’re paying for. It does not have many of the bells and whistles of most Leggett & Platt, Serta or Reverie adjustable beds that we have reviewed here. But if you’re after a basic model that is economically priced, the Classic Brands Adjustable Comfort electric bed is what you’re looking for.

Here is a breakdown of the Classic Brands adjustable bed’s major specs

  1. It has NO pillow tilting. But if all you need is head and foot tilting, this will do!
  2. It has NO wall hugging. We strongly urge you to go with an adjustable bed that is a wall hugger. However, if you’re young and athletic and you’re sure you’ll never get back/neck sprains by leaning backwards to read the night stand; go for it by all means. Oh.. and also, if you’re not planning on having a night-stand, don’t worry about wall hugging at all!
  3. It has 4 programmable positions. Actually, it comes with 4 factory preset memory positions; (1) lounge, (2) flat, (3) zero-gravity and (4) TV/PC positions. Fortunately, these preset memory programs can be overridden or customized to suit your preferences. This is great. Unfortunately, many users of the Classic brands adjustable bed are not aware of this ‘over-riding’ feature, unlike yourself 🙂 Let’s say you don’t like the built-in zero-gravity position of the Classic brands adjustable comfort bed. First, bring the bed to your favorite zero-gravity position. Secondly, long-press the zero-gravity button on the remote for 3 seconds. Thirdly, enjoy your new, completely customized zero-gravity position that fits you like a glove!Classic Brands Adjustable Bed Remote Controller
  4. 3-speed full body massage: Note: the massage function isn’t comparable to the others. According to many reviewers, the vibration is weak and can be barely felt. Secondly, the massage motors/pads are relatively loud! Therefore, we it’s best that you visit your local mattress store and see if they have a Classic Brands adjustable bed for you to test. Check the massage feature; what do you feel? Is it strong or weak? Is it loud or quiet? Compare the strength and noise of the massage motors to a different branded bed and make your final decision!
  5. Smartphone app controllable? NO
  6. It has a built-in USB port Classic Brands Adjustable Comfort bed comes with two USB ports
  7. NO under-bed lighting: but this is really NOT a deal breaker. If you need night-lighting turn on an standalone night lamp; as simple as that 🙂
  8. Legs can be adjusted to 4″, 7″ or 10.5″

As you will agree, the Classic Brands Adjustable Comfort bed lacks high-end features like wall-hugging and pillow tilting. However, it’ll do the job for someone who doesn’t expect much from their adjustable bed; but if you expect something more from your bed, we urge you to stay away from this. The only reason we ranked this above the Reverie 7S is because of the cheaper priced tag of the Classic Brands adjustable bed. If price wasn’t an issue, in all honesty, the Reverie 7S and S-Cape 2.0 are miles above the Classic Brands adjustable bed.

Reverie 7S

 

Reverie 7S Adjustable Bed ReviewEven though we ranked the Reverie 7S behind the Classic Brands Adjustable Comfort Bed, the 7S is far superior to the Classic Brands in many aspects. The only reason it came 2nd to the Classic Brands is because of the more expensive price tag of the Reverie 7S.

Here are some of the major features of the Reverie 7S adjustable foundation

  1. Like all of the mid-range bases, the Reverie 7S also does NOT have pillow tilting
  2. It is a wall hugger according to its manufacturer, however, its level of wall hugging is nowhere near as what you get with the Leggett & Platt Prodigy or S-Cape. Therefore, you’ll still be ‘bending your back’ a little bit when you reach for your night-stand
  3. It has 2 programmable and 3 factory preset memory positions The Reverie 7S Remote Controller comes with 5 Memory Positions
  4. It has 10 speed, full-body massage with the ‘wave’ mode; just like the Reverie 8Q
  5. As shown on the picture above, it has 4 mattress retaining bars on the 4 corners. It’s great, and it’s not, at the same time. The writing on the photo is pretty self-explanatory!
  6. Smartphone app controllable
  7. NO under-the-bed lighting
  8. NO USB ports
  9. Come with height adjustable legs (adjust to 3″, 5″ or 8″ in height) Height adjustable legs of the Reverie 7S adjustable bed

This may not have the bells and whistles of the S-Cape 2.0, however, it has the must have specs of an adjustable frame. Its massage function works as it’s supposed to work, it’s durable and it has a trusted name in the USA.

At the time of writing this, the S-Cape 2.0 is cheaper than the Reverie 7S, so you really can’t justify buying a 7S, when there’s a more feature-rich model available at a cheaper price.


We hope you fell in love with one of the high-end or mid-range adjustable bases. The Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0 and S-Cape 2.0 are our favorite models in the above two categories. In the rare event that you found them a little too pricey for your liking, please check out our entry-level adjustable bed bases. You’re bound to find one from our 8th best to 10th best adjustable beds.

None of the following ‘entry-level’ adjustable beds have

  1. Pillow Tilting
  2. Wall Hugging
  3. Programmable Memory Positions
  4. Massage
  5. Smartphone app control
  6. Bluetooth
  7. USB ports
  8. Under-bed lighting
  9. Lumbar support
  10. Bedroom scenes etc.

That’s not necessarily a bad thing. If you want to keep it plain and simple, these wallet-friendly bases may work perfectly well!

Hofish adjustable bed

 

Hofish adjustable bed

  1. The Hofish One-Step Assembly Adjustable Bed does not have many of the high-end specs we talked about earlier
  2. It does have head and foot tilt allowing you to sit-up to read a book, watch TV or even a play game on your iPhone. It also lets you raise the feet only; or to adopt the zero-gravity position which does wonders if you have RLS (restless leg syndrome).
  3. It has two programmable memory positions; the existing zero-gravity and TV-watching positions can be customized according to your favorite positions.
  4. Most adjustable beds in this price range come with wired remote controllers which are not as sexy as wireless remotes. But worry not, the Hofish adjustable bed with an illuminated wireless remote controller (it ain’t pretty, but it does the job!)
  5. Generally, putting your adjustable bed together, once it’s shipped to your home, is the biggest pain-in-the neck! Not the Hofish, because it comes with a single-step, 3-minute assembly!
  6. It also comes with anti-crushing technology which prevents a hand, a toy, a dog, getting crushed between the bed frame and the lowering foundation. This is generally, a feature of high-end adjustable beds like the Leggett and Platt Premier Series.

Lucid L300 Adjustable Bed Base Review

Lucid L300 Adjustable Bed Frame

The Lucid L300 adjustable base is emerging as a top contender among the entry-level, budget-friendly category of adjustable beds. Here’s a rundown of its major specs.

  1. Of course it can’t give you the luxury of pillow tilting or wall hugging at an affordable price tag of $700.
  2. It doesn’t have the massage option either; no surprises there for the reasonable pricepoint
  3. It comes with ONE customizable memory position. Multiple programmable positions would have been great. But one is better than none. Programme the remote to remember your favorite position (e.g. lounge, zero-gravity, TV watching etc.) and recall it as and when you please, with the press of a single button
  4. It also comes with one preset memory position: that is the ‘flat’ position.
  5. It also comes with a flashlight, on the underside of the remote. This too can be very handy, especially at night
  6. USB Ports. The Lucid adjustable base comes equipped with two USB ports on the under-side of the adjustable foundation. Those that come on the side of the bed are much better.Lucid L300 USB ports on the undersideKneeling under the bed every time you want to charge your phone is impractical. You’ll need to keep the USB charge cable plugged in continuously to make use of these ports. On the plus side, you get these ports on either side of the bed so that both partners can get their phones and tablets charged while they sleep.
  7. The looks: the L300 comes with a trendy frame that is upholstered in Charcoal Gray cloth. This gives a rich look to this entry-level bed.
  8. Last but not least, it comes with a 750 pound lifting capacity and a 10-year warranty. You really can’t ask for more from an adjustable bed of this price category

Make sure you read the customer reviews before you buy the Lucid L300


Leggett & Platt Raven bed review

Leggett and Platt Raven Adjustable Beds Reviews

  1. This too doesn’t have all those luxury specs of the high-end models
  2. This stands out among the entry-level adjustable bed frames based on two specs
    • It comes pre-assembled in a queen-mattress sized-box. All you need to do is screw the four legs in. It only takes five minutes to assemble after unpacking.
    • Thin profile makes it easy to fit into any bed frame. Further, thanks to the thin frame, you can place even an extra-thick mattress (e.g. 14 inches) without making the bed too tall
    • Wireless remote controller – other entry-level models have wired remotes
    • Microhook retention – other entry-level models have mattress retaining bars
    • Compressed/compact frame – allows it to fit within even the slimmest beds
    • Charcoal gray micro-suede fabric gives a luxury look and feel
  3. Designed, engineered and assembled in the USA

Update January, 2018

Leggett and Platt has released A New Adjustable Bed for 2018 which is even more affordable than the Raven. It looks like L&P has released this model to compete with cheaper models like the Classic Brands and Hofish beds.


Sealy Ease Adjustable Bed

Sealy Ease Adjustable Base Review

  1. This is our #10 ranked adjustable base that takes the bottom spot.
  2. This too has a wireless remote controller
  3. However, it’s no exception to other entry-level brands when it comes to pillow tilting, programmable memory positions, massage, wall hugging etc. It doesn’t have them luxury specs!

Conclusion

An entry-level adjustable frame like the Hofish, Lucid L300, Leggett & Platt Raven or the Reverie 7S would do just fine

  1. If all you want is to raise the head (e.g. you have heartburn) or feet (e.g.. you have restless leg syndrome),
  2. If you have no intention of using therapeutic massage, USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity, smartphone compatibility etc.
  3. If you’re on a budget and don’t want to spend for features you’ll rarely use

However, if you want a top of the line adjustable bed with all the bells and whistles, we recommend you choose a model like the Leggett and Platt Prodigy 2.0. Also, remember that your adjustable bed won’t be complete without a high-quality, adjustable bed-friendly mattress.

  1. @Rick,
    Great question!
    If cash is not a limiting factor, the best adjustable mattresses are those made with natural latex. They have a long duration, they have great buoyancy, they don’t sleep hot, no off gassing, no bad odors, the list goes on and on. The only major cons of latex mattresses are their price and their weight. If neither is a problem for you, I highly recommend you put a latex mattress on your Prodigy 2.0.
    If the expensive price tag on latex mattresses is a concern, I suggest a high-quality memory foam mattress. We have reviewed the best memory foam mattresses suitable for adjustable beds elsewhere. Generally, any good-quality memory foam mattress will work.
    Air mattresses also work; like you say, all Sleep Number adjustable beds come with air mattresses. However, I won’t recommend spring mattresses as adjustable mattresses. They are not very flexible and cannot easily adjust to the various positions.
    Hope that helps!
    Cheers!
    Belinda

  2. @Valerie,
    Thank you for the question and thank you for pointing that out. Yes, we used to rank the Serta Motion Custom II as our 3rd best adjustable bed. This was mainly because it had the ‘Lumbar Support’ feature. But then, in early 2018, the Reverie 9T stole its position. The Reverie 9T also comes with lumbar support and has additional features that make it superior to the Serta Motion Custom.
    We will update that initial paragraph to reflect these changes. Many thanks again for pointing it out.
    As for the headboard, no it does not come with that. A couple of others have also asked this question and you can see Linenspa’s answer here.
    As for the ‘upholstered frame’, please note that it is not the ‘light grey’ bed frame that is pictured together with wooden legs. This ‘bed frame’ and ‘headboard’ seem to go together. The upholstered frame they refer to is the ‘outer rim’ of the adjustable foundation. If you could watch the video, you’ll see the Lucid L300 being unboxed and that’s basically what you get. No fancy bed frame, no fancy headboard 🙁
    Hope I answered your questions.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. You got me all fired up and I’m dying to sleep on a Legget Platt Prodigy now. What would be the best adjustable mattress to go on top of it? Would you recommend a spring mattress or foam mattress? Doesn’t the sleep number has an air mattress? How does air mattresses do on adjustable beds?

  4. Thank you for increasing my knowledge of adjustable beds prior to shopping! I noticed in the opening paragraph you mention the Serta Motion Custom II as one of the best but there is no listed review? I personally like that the Lucid L300 comes with an upholstered frame and see it pictured with a tufted headboard as well in Charcoal Gray. Is that available from the company?

  5. I really like L&P Premier P 232 and want to purchase it in spite of the poor consumer reviews. Would you happen to know why it has received a poor rating from consumers?

  6. @ Mike Page,

    Thank you for the wonderful words. We’ll see what we can do. Unfortunately, as you will understand, it’s not what we specialize on; but I’ll check out a few of my contacts. If it can be arranged, will you be ready for a 110 volt bed? Or is 220 volts an absolute must?

    Belinda

  7. Great review- thank you.
    I am based in UK can you please advise or refer me to someone that can source, & (consolidate) deliver at competitive rate door to door to me in London. I am finding it very frustrating & surprising that the big US brands in adjustable brands are not represented or obviously available here. (LP, Mantua..) pretty designs favour the elderly & infirm.
    I’m looking for a modern/contemporary but robust design in Split Super King (Complete bed,with high end mattresses & headboard..) under $4000 delivered (ie. including transport, import & duties etc)
    I will appreciate your guidance

  8. @Terrance,
    Well observed Terrance.
    The best current adjustable beds slide 10-12 inches back which generally puts you right by the nightstand. Measure how much the foot-end of the bed moves back from the foot-board (if any). That should give you a decent idea on how much the bed slides back.
    Let us know what you would end up purchasing and how much it slides back.
    All da bast from the Bedroom Solutions team!

  9. @Kate,

    Thank you for the great question.

    Well… on paper, the Classic Brands electric bed definitely looks better. The Classic Brands comes with built-in massage and the Lucid 300 doesn’t. Also, the former has more adjustable memory positions. But if you look close, i.e. read Classic Brands customer reviews, you’ll see that some people (most) didn’t appreciate the ‘massage’ very much. Most simply call it a ‘vibration’ than a ‘massage’.

    I suggest you also study the breakdown of the star rating of the two beds. Look at the % of 5 star reviews and 1 star reviews for the two beds.

    If I were you, leaving aside the ‘massage/vibration’ function, I’d buy the Lucid 300 adjustable bed. Your question reminds me that we should get on with that Classic Brands vs Lucid 300 adjustable bed comparison.

    Hope my answer helped you toward making an educated decision!

  10. I dropped by at our local mattress store and checked out a popular brand of adjustable bed with wall snuggling. Even though the sales person insisted it had wall hugging/snuggling, I wasn’t really impressed about how much the bed moved back. Can you please tell me how much (inches or feet) a wall hugger bed actually moves back towards the wall at maximum wall hugging?

  11. You have ranked the Classic Brands reclining bed above the Lucid reclining bed. Can you please indicate why this is? This is the price range I’m looking for and I want to choose one of the above two models.

  12. @Dwayne,
    Thank you for the encouraging note and thank you indeed for the question.

    First and foremost, I think you’ve got the ‘furniture’ style and ‘foundation’ style mixed up a little. ‘Furniture-style’ refers to adjustable beds that have the deck-on-deck design. Adjustable bases with a single deck are known as ‘foundation-style’.

    But, you’re correct in saying that the Prodigy 2.0 doesn’t come with a deck-on-deck design. You’re right again in saying that the S-Cape 2.0 is available with a deck-on-deck design; but alas, not the Prodigy! Beats me!! Yes sir, you indeed are a PRODIGY for spotting that. I only hope all our readers grasp the concepts as well as you have!

    If you really like the deck-on-deck feature, have you thought about going with a Reverie 9T? The only major drawback of the 9T, compared to the Prodigy is that its lack of pillow tilting. It’s totally up to you. Do you want the looks on the Reverie 9T or the Pillow Tilting? Don’t forget that the 9T also comes with the awesome lumbar support.

    Hope that helped at least a teeny weeny bit…

  13. Wow… that took more than half and hour to absorb everything. I think this is the best review online by far (on adjustable electric beds).
    I totally like the deck on deck design (aka foundation style?) bases. I also like the Prodigy 2.0 (you thoroughly convinced me). But I can’t find a Prodigy 2.0 with a deck and deck design. I see that the Leggett and Plat S-Cape comes in both deck on deck and furniture style.
    Am I correct or have I missed the foundation style Prodigy?
    Am I a prodigy or what for spotting that 🙂

  14. @Courtney,
    The Bedroom Solutions team appreciates those encouraging words. Yes, picking an adjustable bed isn’t as easy as they (the manufacturers) say it is. But it’s not too complicated either. Once you understand the different options available and what you actually need from an adjustable bed, the selection process is quite straightforward.
    I’m sure you’ll make the right choice!
    Best!
    Belinda

  15. Wow who knew picking a reclining bed was such a tedious process. Anyways, thanks to you guys, now I know exactly what I want. I’m not planning on watching tv and using the laptop on the bed. So I’m not sure if I want to spend the extra cash for pillow tilting or not. Let me sleep on it and make a decision tomorrow.

    Thanks again for a lovely bed review.

  16. @Daniella,

    Yes, we too have no doubt that the Premier series is simply the best. However, for some weird reason, it has poor reviews on Amazon. If you read the reviews, you’ll see that some buyers didn’t get the tablet remote; instead they received a regular remote controller. Another buyer was delivered a different model, although he/she ordered a Premier series.

    Although we initially included it in the top 10 reclining beds, later we demoted it based on the poor consumer reviews it received.

    If you’re really into the Premier series, I suggest you find a local retailer that carries the L&P Premier and buy from them. Make sure you triple check everything before you confirm the order; that way you won’t be disappointed.

    Hope that helps!
    Have a blessed day!
    Belinda

  17. To me, the Leggett platt premier seems to be the best adjustable bed by far with its bedroom scenes, LP connect, LP sense etc. Yet you have not included it in your top 10 adjustable beds. May I know why?

  18. @ enrique sanchez
    LOL… active couples? Who exactly would be a non-active couple?

    I guess we’re a VERY active couple who’ve been using a Tempurpedic bed for nearly 5 years. None of our ‘activities’ have been hampered by the fact that we have a split king adjustable bed. If anything, our ‘activities’ have been highly spiced up by our split king 😉 Let your imagination run riot!

    BTW Belinda, I can’t seem to find your tempurpedic adjustable bed reviews.

    Kristal

  19. I would not recomend adjustable beds for active couples. Imagine sleeping on a twin bed with a large gap in between you two. Good luck!!!

  20. @ Samantha,
    Hi there!

    Thank you for the kind words and you make several valid points.

    Yes, the iDealBed 4i Custom definitely looks good; however, let me point out to you that it’s not necessarilybetter than most on the top 10 list“. For example, it doesn’t have pillow tilting and wall hugging (I hope you saw the ‘Cons of the iDealBed 4i…’ towards the bottom of the page). Nevertheless, we believe that iDealBed 4i still deserves a spot on the Top 10. But we deliberately didn’t include it in the Top 10 yet, because it’s still relatively new and we wanted to give it a bit more time.

    Just because the specs look good on paper, it doesn’t mean it’ll actually be good in real-life, especially in the long run. For example, out of all the adjustable beds we’ve reviewed, the Leggett & Platt Premier P-232 has the highest specs on paper and we used to have it in our top 10. But it didn’t keep up to the hype and it kept getting poor buyer ratings. At a certain point we decided to remove it from our Top 10 adjustable beds. We don’t want to do that to iDealBed 4i Custom and thus the reason we have not included it in our top 10.

    But we’ll continue to monitor it and may be in 1-2 months time, we’ll do justice! Right now, it’s kind of being ‘quarantined’ and monitored…doesn’t mean it’s not good enough to go in the top 10… hope you understand!

    Thanks again for your wonderful review, it means a lot to our team.
    Have a good one!
    Belinda
