Reverie 8Q Adjustable BedReverie 8Q Reverie 7S Adjustable Bed Frame Reverie 7S Reverie 5D Adjustable Bed BaseReverie 5D
 1. Pillow tilting

Yes Yes No  No

An adjustable bed frame with head and foot tiltPinIn case you didn’t know, all adjustable beds on this planet have the following two types of adjustments:

  1. Head Tilting
  2. Foot Tilting

Reverie 7S, Reverie 5D, Leggett & Platt S-Cape, ShipShape etc. are adjustable beds with only these two types of adjustments. Check out the image on the right; the bed can flex at the hip region (known as “head tilt”) and at the knee region (known as “foot tilt”).

In addition to the above two adjustments, several models of adjustable beds such as the Prodigy 2.0 and Reverie 8Q have a 3rd level of adjustment known as “Pillow Tilting”. This is basically a 3rd level of tilting around the neck region. Pillow tilting facilitates proper support of your neck when you’re in the upright position watching TV, reading a newspaper or when you’re checking email on your laptop/iPad. On a bed without Pillow tilting, you’ll need to have a pillow to substitute for pillow tilting. However, note that all adjustable beds up to about year 2014 did NOT have this 3rd level of tilting and adjustable bed users were still elated about their beds!wp-monalisa iconPin

Which adjustable beds have pillow tilting?

  • DM9000s
  • Amerisleep Plus
  • Plushbeds S755
  • Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0
  • Premier series P-232
  • Reverie 8Q
  • Serta Motion Custom Adjustable Base (Queen)

Reverie 8Q Head, Foot and Pillow TiltingPin

Out of all the differences among the above four adjustable beds, we would say “Pillow Tilting” is the critical most feature! Pillow tilting makes the Reverie 8Q superior to Reverie 7S and 5D.  Especially given that the Reverie 8Q is only a couple hundred dollars more expensive than the 7S (for a queen size adjustable bed frame), there is absolutely no reason for you to settle for anything less than an 8Q, if you’re in the market for a Reverie adjustable base!

 2. Wall Hugging

Before we tell you how the Reverie 8Q and 7S adjustable beds compare to the Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0 beds’ wall hugging feature, let us tell you what wall hugging actually is.Wall hugger vs non-wall hugger comparisonPin

  • WITH wall hugging: you stay right next to your nightstand even if you raise the head of the bed (when you sit up to watch TV, for example). This way you can easily reach for your coffee, TV remote controller, the book you were reading, or your spectacles on the nightstand without straining your back
  • WITHOUT wall hugging: when you raise the head of your adjustable bed, the entire bed comes forward positioning you away from the nightstand. What this means is that you have to reach back uncomfortably to reach anything on your bedside-table such as the TV remote, specs, iPhone, glass of water etc. This can be uncomfortable and end up straining your back, neck, shoulder or arm.

Reverie 8Q vs Prodigy 2.0 Wall Hugging

The image we put together for you below is pretty self-explanatory! We’ll shut up and let you figure out the obvious.

Reverie 8Q vs Leggett and Platt Prodigy 2.0 Wall Hugging ComparisonPin

It’s not that Reverie 7S and 8Q don’t have wall hugging, but rather the degree of wall hugging is insufficient.

Is the ‘lack’ of wall hugging on the Reverie 8Q a deal breaker?

YES and NO!

  • For those who already have back or neck problems, an adjustable bed without wall hugging is a no no! You don’t want to aggravate it any further than what it already is by twisting to reach the nightstand that is about one foot behind you! If this is you, go for [easyazon_link identifier=”B00QPZO5KK” locale=”US” tag=”abeds-20″]THIS model[/easyazon_link] or [easyazon_link identifier=”B00HV2T04M” locale=”US” tag=”abeds-20″]THIS model[/easyazon_link]
  • For those who are athletic and/or don’t need to reach for their nightstands all that often, wall hugging is not an absolute necessity!
 3. Programmable Memory Positions Up to 4 memory positions can be programmed on the Prodigy 2.o:


  1. Zero-gravity/lounging
  2. TV watching
  3. Head only
  4. Feet only
Up to 2 memory positions can be programmed on the Reverie 8Q, 7S and 5D models
 4. Factory Preset Memory Positions The Prodigy 2.o comes with the following 2 factory preset memory positions:

  1. Anti-snore position
  2. Flat position

Legget and Platt Prodigy 2.0 flat and anti-snore preset positions

All 3 models (Reverie 8Q, 7S and 5D) come with the following 3 factory preset memory positions:

  1. Zero-gravity position
  2. Anti-snore position
  3. Flat positionReverie 8Q Preset Memory Positions on RemotePin

What’s more important? “Factory preset memory positions” or “programmable memory positions”?

As you’re well aware, adjustable beds can be “adjusted” to adopt hundred and one positions. Some of the popular ones are: (A) flat position (obviously), (B) sit-up position for watching TV, reading the newspaper, having breakfast on bed, working on a laptop etc., (C) zero-gravity or lounging position for total relaxation, (D) elevating only feet for therapeutic reasons. Given below is a graphical illustration of some of these positions.

Different adjutable positions of a Reverie adjustable bedPin

What you need to understand is that the preferred TV watching position (for example) by every individual is not identical. Anne may want it at a 60 degree incline while Mary may like 55 degrees best. And BIG John may want it at 75 degrees. The point we’re trying to make here is that a factory preset position may not suit every single consumer the same way. In contrast, if Anne, Mary and Big John had the option of programming their favorite TV watching position to 60, 55 and 75 degrees, respectively, according to their preference, that would be a better option than factory preset TV watching position of 65 degrees.

Read more on the topic of “programmable memory positions vs factory preset memory positions” on our Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0 vs S-Cape vs Premier Series comparison.

In summary, we’ll take an adjustable bed with 4 programmable memory positions over one with 2 programmable memory positions, all day-all week! In other words, we’d give the 4 programmable positions on the Prodigy 2.0 FIVE stars while we give the 2 programmable positions on the Reverie adjustable beds FOUR stars. However, for someone that wouldn’t need that many programmable positions, the 2 custom positions on the Reverie would be plenty!

 5. Mattress retaining bars vs MicroHook retention system
  • Regular (non-adjustable) beds – have no retaining bars. Don’t need ’em!
  • Mattress retainer bar on adjustable bedPinAdjustable beds – mattress can slide off the bottom end (feet) when the top end (head) of the bed is raised. That doesn’t sound too good. Adjustable bed manufacturers came up with something known as “mattress retainer bars” to prevent this slipping of the mattress. They’ve been on adjustable beds for decades; however, they can get a little annoying as they get in the way when you’re making your bed. You’ll need to tuck the sheets under the mattress through the retaining bars every morning. Not a huge deal; but not the most convenient way to make your bed! This is where Leggett & Platt have come up with the MicroHook retention system in its 2016 version of the Prodigy adjustable bed. The MicroHook retention system of the Prodigy 2.0 eliminates the need for mattress retaining bars.
    • Reverie 8Q, 7S and 5D: come with mattress retainer bars on all four corners of the bed. Can get in the way when making your bed

      Reverie adjustable bed with 4 mattress retaining barsPin

    • Prodigy 2.0: MicroHook retention system; does not interfere with making the bed
    • Leggett and Platt Prodigy 2.0 microhook retention systemPin

      Are the mattress retainer bars on the Reverie 8Q, 7S and 5D beds a deal breaker?

Certainly NOT! wp-monalisa iconPin

It holds the mattress and sheets in place very well. It’s just that it’s a tad bit more work to tuck in the bed sheets every morning when making your bed.

 6. Price A queen-size Prodigy 2.0 can be bought for ~$1850 (Reverie 7Smattress) A queen-size Reverie 8Q can be bought for ~$1600 (excluding mattress) A queen-size Reverie 7S can be bought for ~$1400 (excluding mattress) A queen-size Reverie 5D can be bought for ~$1200 (excluding mattress)

1. Head tilting and foot tilting Yes, all 4 of them have head and foot tilting capabilities (if they didn’t, they wouldn’t be adjustable beds!)
2. AC outlets NONE 2 on the remote stand None None
3. USB Ports 4 on each side: 8 in total 1 on the remote stand None None

Prodigy 2.0 USB HubPinIs the single USB port on the Reverie 8Q a deal breaker?

Not really! We personally think 8 USB ports is an overkill! We still can’t figure out what 8 things to plug into all these ports. The husband’s phone, tablet, Bluetooth headphones, rechargeable Bluetooth mouse? and the same four of the wifey?? Besides, if you really want to charge more devices on your Reverie 8Q, you can always use a portable USB hub.

4. Built-in Massage
  • Dual, full-body massage: upper and lower therapeutic body massage
  • Wave action: for a wave of massage running head to toe
  • 3 speeds (low, medium, high)
  • Adjustable bed massagePinDual, full-body massage: upper and lower body therapeutic massage
  • 10 speeds

10 speeds of massage on the Reverie is awesome; however, 3 speeds vs 10 speeds really doesn’t make a big difference when it comes to choosing one of the two.

5. Sleep Timer The Prodigy 2.0 has a sleep timer through its smartphone app. You can program the bed to automatically lower in to the ‘flat position’ from the TV watching upright position after a set time.Premier series sleep timer on remotePin Reverie 7S and 8Q too have the sleep timer function through its iOS/Apple iPhone/Android appsReverie adjustable bed sleep timerPin The Reverie 5D doesn’t have the ‘luxury’ sleep timer!
6. Alarm clock The Prodigy 2.0 has a built-in vibrating alarm. The bed will vibrate or the remote will beep. In case of split king models, this vibration won’t disturb your partner; how convenient is that!Prodigy 2.0 alarm on iPhone The Reverie 8Q and 7S also have an alarm clock function through its smartphone apps. In addition to waking up by vibration, this can also automatically lift up your head to wake you up when the alarm goes off.

7. Snore control Legget and Platt Prodigy 2.0 capacitive remote controller - snore button Reverie 8Q Anti-snore button on the remotePinBoth the Prodigy 2.0 and Reverie 8Q/7S come with factory preset anti-snore memory positions. There is a button dedicated for that on the remote on each model. You can do that using the smartphone app via Bluetooth as well. The Reverie 5D doesn’t have an anti-snore preset position; however, you can manually adjust to an anti-snore position by lifting the head to open up some ‘blocked’ airways!
8. Under-bed lighting/ Nightlight Under bed night light on the Reverie 8Q adjustable bed PinNot an essential feature; however, can be very useful under certain circumstances. You can use it to guide you to the bathroom, to locate the bathroom slippers or simply to use as a dim night lamp to be lit throughout the night. The Reverie 5D and 7S don’t have an under bed nightlight wp-monalisa iconPin
9. Height adjustable legs 6 – 10 inch height-adjustable legs. You adjust the height by placing the pin in the appropriate hole!

The Verdict

  1. Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0: The overall winner! It’s around ~$200 more expensive than the Reverie 8Q; however, we recommend you invest that extra $200 (about 15 cent investment per day) given the extra features on the Prodigy 2.0 like Wall hugging and MicroHook retention system. These two features alone make your investment worthwhile.
  2. Reverie 8Q: The most feature rich adjustable bed by Reverie. “Pillow tilting” by itself makes investing extra $200 on the 8Q compared to a 7S worthwhile.
  3. Reverie 5D: The most basic model of the Reverie range discussed here. It doesn’t have sophisticated specs like pillow tilting, USB ports, alarm clocks, sleep timers etc. However, it does everything and more you expect from an adjustable bed: e.g. head and foot adjustability, head and foot therapeutic massage, wireless remote controller etc. etc.
  4. Wall hugging: The single most feature that makes the Prodigy 2.0 a whole lot more powerful compared to the Reverie range of adjustable beds.

If you could cough up the extra few 100 dollar bills, the Prodigy 2.0 is undoubtedly the best bed your money could buy. However, if you insist on saving those $200, you can go down to a Reverie 7S. We don’t recommend you go below this level. This is mainly because of the lack of Pillow Tilting on the 5D and 7S. Those who wish to use the bed in the upright seated position. should make up their minds to dish out the extra cash needed to buy on a mattress with pillow tilting.

41 thoughts on “Reverie 8Q vs 7S vs 5D vs Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0 Comparison”

  1. Do any of the adjustable bases have a flex split head? In other words, the head part is split and the base is connected. I am also looking at Select Comfort and Personal Comfort beds. Both are comparable to the Sleep Number I8 model. Which do you recommend?

    • Hi Phil,
      Thanks for the great questions!
      First of all, may I know why you prefer a ‘Flex Split Head’? The only advantage I can think of is the absence of a ‘valley’ in the middle. Other than that, everything else is a disadvantage IMO.

      • For example, split-head mattresses are not commonly available if you ever want to upgrade/change.
      • Split-head doesn’t give the two partners complete independence. What if one partner finds it more comfortable to sleep with the legs slightly elevated while the other doesn’t? Raising the legs a few degrees can be great for restless leg syndrome and even certain types of back aches.
      • What if the two partners’ mattress preferences are different? One prefers a soft mattress and the other prefers a firm mattress? Split-head doesn’t give you the option of picking two separate mattresses
      • If you went for a completely split king bed, each of your mattresses is only half size (twin-XL); say 50 pounds. But if you went with a split-head mattress, you’re looking at a large, 100 pound mattress. Lifting, carrying it through narrow passageways, maneuvering inside the bedroom, everything becomes more complicated, wouldn’t you agree?
      • When it comes to split-head adjustable beds like those from Sleep Number FlexFit, they’re more expensive, but have less features compared to our highest ranked adjustable beds. The FlexFit beds don’t have features like pillow tilting, lumbar support, elevation lift etc. Why would you want to pay more for a less-featured adjustable bed?
      • All in all, we’re not big fans of split-head beds or mattresses. We hope you agree with the points we’ve made above.

        Secondly, to answer your Select Comfort vs Personal Comfort vs i8 question. First of all, Select Comfort IS Sleep Number! The company name was changed a couple of years ago. If you haven’t seen our Sleep Number Bed Review yet, I suggest you do that if you’re interested in purchasing a Sleep Number bed. That will help you decide which Sleep Number mattress would suit you best.

        To be honest, we don’t have much experience with Personal Comfort mattresses. They look good, even better than Sleep Number based on the comparison video they have on their sales page. But we haven’t tested them personally and therefore, unable to comment on durability.

        Hope we were at least helpful with part of your question!
        Good luck and we would love to hear about your final decision!

  2. I have had several L&P Prodigies for decades, primarily for reflux. Each has lasted for many years, except this last one.
    My biggest complaint was having to shove my heavy queen mattress back into place almost every day, since due to arthritis and being an editor, I spend a lot of time on my bed and getting on off frequently. Was disappointed when the current L@P started making grinding noises (I’m also hearing impaired so it took me a while to figure out why I had a sore rear end.)
    Long story short, when I saw those retainer bars on the 8Q, I was sold. I’m also short so hopefully being able to use 3″ legs will help get me onto the bed more easily. Still waiting for 8Q delivery, hope I’m not disappointed! I’ll update if anything relevant. Glad to found this page!

    • Hi Danielle,

      Great to hear that you found value on our Reverie 8Q review but sad to hear that you’re not happy with your L&P. Yes, the retainer bars on the Reverie beds are unique and no mattress will escape those. Next time you check on adjustable beds for reflux, make sure to check out the ones with ‘Elevation Lift’. They’re the god-given adjustable beds for GERD. You can read about them just by Googling or visiting our page on

      Again, thanks for stopping by to comment. We really appreciate your time and it means a lot to our hardworking team!

  3. Having гead this adjustable bed review, I can only say I’m blown away. Like others, I highly аpppгeciate you finding the time and energy tⲟ put thіѕ detailed review toɡether. I’ve been having episodes of heartburn since I was 17 and if I understand right, I need to go with a Glideaway elevation reclining bed? Did I get that right? Or would the Reverie or Prodigy work just fine?

    • @Elyse,
      First of all, thank you for your awesome comment; it means a lot to our team.

      Yes, you got that right. If you’re struggling with nightmare heartburn, there’s no other bed like the Glideaway Elevation electric bed. A L&P Prodigy would help you prevent acid reflux, when you’re up and reading a book, watching TV from bed etc. But for nighttime sleep, nothing comes close to the Glideaway Elevation when combating GERD.

      All the best and we look forward to hearing from you on how the Glideaway helped you in counteracting your acid reflux.

  4. 1) So how about the Reverie 9t? Although it’s lack of pillow tilt seems like a deal breaker. the 8Q may be better?
    2) Current price differentials for a split king on Prodigy2 vs Reverie8Q seems to be 2900 vs 2000. The ~10% difference on the Queen at time of writing might have been worth it, but you wouldn’t suggest that now for a nearly 50% price difference right? Seems to 8Q is a clear winner to me now, at least for split king.

    • @ PJ,

      Excellent analysis (BTW, I like your email address 😉

      You’re right; basically one has to place wall hugging on one side of the balance and the price difference on the other side. For some, wall hugging may outweigh the price difference while for others it will not. That’s how I would choose between the 8Q and the Prodigy 2.0.

      If only the 9T had pillow tilting… but then again, it’s more expensive than all of the other models we talked about 🙁 Just like everything else in life, choosing an adjustable bed isn’t as straightforward as it should be!

      Thank you again for your input!

  5. I have a sleep number bed, king, 10 plus yrs, old that is still in very good shape. I want to go to an adjustable be due to a spinal condition that my wife has which has made her a paraplegic. I am looking at the LP s-cape 2.0 and the reverie 8Q or 9T, split King. My question is, does any of these bed frames lend themselves to a air bladder type of mattress? At some point I would separate and reconfigure the air mattress to work independently so each side could be adjusted separately.

    • @ D Postma,

      Unfortunately, most air mattresses don’t work with adjustable bases. Especially, if they have a single chamber/bladder. The ‘bending/folding’ of the mattress, when the adjustable foundation is in a ‘non-flat’ position, can interfere with the airflow.
      However, there are special air mattresses that can work with adjustable bases. Imagine a mattress with separate air bladders for the head-section, lumbar-section and foot-section. Each section will have their own air flow/air pump and will manure independent from the other air chambers. These are the types that are recommended for adjustable beds. I see a few of them listed on

      Please note that they have older models of the S-Cape bed etc. So, if you can buy the mattress separately and put it on a newer model of adjustable foundation that you buy from Amazon or Sam’s club or any local store, that would give the best value for your money.

      Beds like the Personal Comfort A8 Bed on Amazon also seems to work with an adjustable foundation. See this comment

      Hope that helps!
      Keep us posted on what you eventually buy and how it works out for you and your wife.

  6. I am looking for an adjustable bed and I’ve had the ability to test out the Reverie 9T at a local mattress store and also at Costco. My biggest concern with these adjustable beds is the safety of my pets. I understand the Leggett and Platt base has a pet safety feature? Do all Leggett and Platt models have this feature? Do any of the Reverie beds have a safety feature? I actually prefer the look of the Reverie with its wood grain base but we have had a instance where our cat was injured in a reclining couch a few years back so we are really cautious now. Any advice?

    • @ Karen,

      Great question. It’s always good to see people asking the right questions!

      Your concern is very legitimate. Unfortunately, NO the Reverie 9T does not have a safety feature like that. Actually, out of the Leggett and Platts, only the Premier Series has the safety feature called “LP sense” detection technology. The Prodigy 2.0 has a ‘lock’ on the remote that prevents accidental raising/lowering of the bed. But models like the Prodigy and S-Cape do not have the same safety feature.

      Hopefully, adjustable bed manufacturers will adopt this safety technologies in the very near future.

      The good news is that, generally, once the cat senses/hears the motors of the raising/lowering bed, they’ll get out asap.

      Yes I agree, the 9T looks awesome; however, it doesn’t have pillow tilting, which can be a deal breaker for some. We have recently done a Reverie 9T review and you can find it from the adjustable bed drop down menu at the top of this page.

      Hope that helped!

  7. Do you have a review of the Reverie 9T rising bed? Do you recommend the 9T or the 8Q? The 9T certainly looks better. What is your take on this?
    Chelsea, MI

    • @ Chelsea, Yes, we do have a review on the Reverie 9T on

      You’re right in saying the 9T looks better. If looks aren’t all that important to you, I’d recommend the 8Q because the 8Q has pillow tilting (9T doesn’t) and the 8Q is cheaper than the 9T. But you’re paying more for the 9T because you get more features with it. Please check out our Reverie 9T review for more details on it.

      Good luck!

    • @Kmk
      Thank you for pointing out the broken links. seems to have rearranged their product pages a bit. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

      A sleep system simply is a fancy word these manufacturers (and retailers) use to describe a “bed + mattress combo”. Instead of selling you the bed or mattress, they sell you the ‘whole system’!!

      For reference, we’ve given a few examples on and However, feel free to search the whole internet and your local mattress/bed stores to find the ‘sleeping system’ that suits you best. Generally, you get better deals online that from the manufacturer or the local stores.

      Thanks again! We have corrected the links.

  8. I just placed my order for the Q8 bed and Dream Sleep mattress.
    Can anyone tell me how long the split is. The lady that was selling them at the Costco road show said it’s 32”. A cannot find sheets with a 32” split.
    Please let me know as soon as possible.
    We would like to order the sheets to complement our Colors

  9. I purchased a 7S and it came with a bluetooth module including night light. Since the 7S remote doesn’t have a night light button there was no way to control the night light. I purchased a low cost android phone so I could use the reverie app but there is a timer that turns off the night light. On my phone the screen doesn’t show any way to disable the timer so sometimes the light will stay on for a week or more, then at times it turns off every day. I turn the smartphone off but the light will eventually turn off anyway. Is the timer in the phone or in the bluetooth module and is there anyway to disable the timer?

  10. You haven’t addressed split king adjustable beds. I have been trying to research them to find the right bed but find it confusing. First what are the best bases that you would recommend.

  11. Can any of the Reverie or L&P twin XL bases (2 to make a king) fit inside of a low profile bed frame? I do like that the Reverie 8Q will go as low as 3″. It looks like the L&P will only go down to 6″

    • Hi Steve,
      To be honest, I have no idea why they’re trying to push the Reverie 4M. The 8Q has pillow tilting, the 9T is absolutely gorgeous and the 4M is neither. It’s also relatively thick which IMO makes it ugly.
      It has what they call ‘ProGrip’ technology (similar to the MicroHook retention system of Leggett and Platt) which eliminates the need for mattress retaining bars. But this is not a huge plus point.
      The only reason I would buy the Reverie 4M is if its 3D massage function is far superior to the massage quality of other adjustable foundations. If you think 3D massage will make or break the deal for you, I suggest you drop by at your nearest mattress store that carries Reverie adjustable beds and experience the massage for yourself. However, for me personally, massage cannot outweigh the benefits of pillow tilting, wall hugging etc. of L&P models.

      Hope that helped!

  12. Thanks for your comparison, very helpful! Does the 9T have the same problem with the degree of wall hugging as the 8Q? I’m hoping you will review it similarly. I like the idea of the lumbar support!! I currently have an adjustable bed that I’m moving to the guest room, I constantly put pillows behind my back and neck when sitting in bed. Also I saw some reviews on the Prodigy 2.0 that mentioned problems with the remote and/or the app. Do you know of problems with that or with customer service on either?

    • Hey Carol,

      Thank you for the great question. Yes, we’ve been meaning to do a detailed Reverie 9T review; but it has gotten postponed way more than we would have ideally liked to have.

      Unfortunately, the wall hugging isn’t too different to that of the 8Q. On the video below pause around the 1.17 mark (1 minute 17 seconds) and see how far back the nightstand is located. Also, keep watching the whole video and you’ll see that the ‘foot end’ of the bed don’t significantly slide back. If wall hugging is to be successful, the bed has to slide up towards the head, pushing your butt towards the headboard. That’s what keeps you right by the nightstand. Watch this video and you’ll see that the 9T doesn’t slide up sufficiently either.

      Yes, lumbar support is an awesome feature. The 9T has it, so does the Serta Motion Custom II; our #3 recommended adjustable base. However, notice that the location of the lumbar support ‘bar’ is different between the two. Check the video on the Serta base at 0.34 minutes and decide where you want your lumbar support to be and choose one accordingly. For some, the lumbar support on the 9T can be a tad bit too low!

      Yes, I’ve seen a few customers complaining on the L&P Android/iOS app as well. But, if that really is a App problem or the users’ problem, I don’t know. The ones I’ve personally used hadn’t given me problems. But, in general, the more advanced and fancy, the technology gets, the troubles that come with it can also get more ‘advanced’. Sorry, I don’t have any experience with Leggett and Platt’s customer service.

      Thanks again for your questions and hope our answers help you make the right decision.

    The comparison states that the 8Q comes with Pillow Tilting and I saw where you said it does as well. However, I don’t see any where on the 8Q remote that allows you to adjust the pillow area of the bed. The Prodigy 2.0 clearly shows a Pillow button on its remote. Can you clarify if the 8Q has this function and if so how do we adjust it? Thanks!!

    • @ JM,
      Thanks for a great question! I’m happy that our readers are really sharp and paying attention to detail.
      If you think about it, you don’t need pillow tilting unless the head section is fully raised, correct? In other words it wouldn’t make sense to use the pillow tilting if the head section is near flat. At least it looks like that’s how Reverie has thought about it.
      On the 8Q, just keep pressing the “+” button on the head section: first the head section raises; and when the head section gets close to near maximal lift, the ‘pillow tilting’ automatically activates to further straighten your upper body and to support the neck. Hope my answer is clear. If I find a video of this, I’ll post it for your info later! All da best!

      OK I did find a video; it’s not in English, but I think it’s self-explanatory!

  14. I have not been able to find the Leggett and Platt Prodigy 2.0, Reverie 8Q in my area to give them a test drive. I have seen the Reverie 9T and 5D. I like the 9T. Would you have a comparison between the 9T and the 8Q? It is interesting to see that the 8Q is not listed as an item on the Reverie web site, do you by chance know why? When I look at the list of retailers for Leggett and Platt or Reverie in my area they are all the same stores just different locations and they only sell certain models. The model are not the ones you have listed. Any other info you provide is wonderful.

    • @Sal,
      Thanks for the excellent questions! The Reverie 8Q is still there… here’s the page… However, they recently replaced the “Q-series” with the “T-series”. Note that there are now Reverie 7T, 8T, and 9T adjustable beds These are newer, sleeker and better looking adjustable foundations; however, they’re also very expensive. You could buy a split king 8Q for less than $2,000 while the split king 9T costs as much as $3,600. Since you asked for a Reverie 8Q vs 9T comparison, the major advantages of the Reverie 9T are its looks, the 3D Wave Massage and Lumbar support. The 8Q is cheaper and comes with Pillow tilting, which is great especially for those who do a lot of reading, watching TV or working (on your laptops) on their beds.

  15. im trying to figure out which models have the option to turn the massage on the feet only. i have an arrhythmia and the vibration on the head irritates it.

    • @Beka, That is an excellent question. What you will notice is that on most adjustable beds with the massage function, you could reduce the intensity of the head or foot massage independent of the other. Most beds with the massage function nowadays have two separate motors; one for the head, and the other motor for the feet. Sometimes you can’t completely shut down one; but you can definitely turn the strength/intensity down to a ‘near-zero’ level. Hopefully that level will be low enough to not interfere with your arrhythmia. I suggest you pay a visit to your local bed/mattress store and test out each model individually. Our best recommended adjustable beds like the Prodigy 2.0, S-Cape 2.0, Reverie 8Q all of them have this option of operating the head and foot independently of the other. Hope this helps!

  16. Can you please explain the Legget and Platt microhook feature? I understand that it is designed to keep the mattress in place, but how does it work? Does the mattress get “Velfro’d” to the power base? Would this potentially void the mattress warranty – at least for the cover? Photos of the microhook system would be wonderful!

    • Thank you Jeanne for the excellent question.

      Yes, indeed, as you predicted, basically, it’s a velcro-like system where the mattress ‘sticks’ to the adjustable base. It’s located as two horizontal strips that run across the bed. Can you spot two white strips on the Prodigy 2.0? That’s the microhook retention system. However, based on the material of the mattress, sometimes the mattress may not stick to the base as strongly as you want it to. Some customers complained that the mattress moves despite the microhook retention system and that the mattress retaining bars are actually better in terms of holding the mattress in place.

      We agree that the retaining bars are superior to the microhooks in terms of preventing the mattress from sliding down. But, if you’re to buy an adjustable bed with mattress retaining bars, you’re going to have to buy an older model. Most of the best brands of 2017 come with the microhook retention system instead. Should you buy an older model with less features, just to get the mattress retaining bar? “NO” is out answer. But, pay close attention to specs of some of the adjustable beds; they come with a mattress retaining bar in addition to the velcro fasteners. Can’t ask for more, could you? Hope that helps!

  17. After reading your Reverie 8Q adjustable bed review, I’m really tempted to buy a Reverie 8Q or even better, a Prodigy 2.0. But both these models are beyond my budget. I think I’ll need to settle for a Reverie 7S. What are the real cons of the 7S, compared to the 8Q?

  18. I’ve looked at adjustable beds all day… I found the L&P massage function to be annoyingly loud and mechanical feeling. Seems like they all have drawbacks.

    • Hi Lisa,

      I’m sorry you’ve had a bad experience. Yes, I agree that the massage can have a mechanical feeling. That’s why we said on one of our reviews that it’s nowhere near what you get from a masseur. It’s also not as good as what you can get from a massage chair because you’re being massaged through an 8 – 12 inch mattress. If you think about it, it’s pretty amazing that these beds are able to deliver that degree of massage even through such a thick mattress. As for the loudness, I’m pretty surprised. I have a feeling you may have checked a local store with an outdated model. The newest models are unbelievably quiet nowadays. I suggest you visit a few more stores in your area and compare the different adjustable bed brands for noise during raising/lowering the bed and massage. Obviously, when you have full body massage (instead of upper OR lower only), the noise is louder because there are two motors working together. Hope that helps! I’m afraid that even the best of the best ones aren’t perfect; that is the bottom line!

  19. Is the lack or ‘poor’ wall huging on Reverie models a real problem? Is that the only significant drawback of the Reverie adjustable beds compared to Legget and Platt electric beds?

  20. Useful and detailed Reverie adjustable bed review, much appreciated.

    Can you also please tell me the difference between the Reverie 8Q and the 8i?

    Do you have a 8Q vs 8i comparison elsewhere?

    • @ Samantha,

      No we haven’t reviewed the Reverie Signature 8i ideal bed. But we advise you NOT to go with the 8i because it doesn’t have the pillow tilting feature. The 8Q has pillow tilting and we encourage you to go with the 8Q; they’re both similarly priced.

      Hope that helps!

  21. I was about to order a Reverie 8Q Split King adjustable bed online. But after reading your Reverie 8Q vs Leggett and Platt Prodigy comparison, I feel that the Prodigy 2.0 is a better option. If you don’t mind me asking, can you please tell me what in your opinion is THE feature that will attract you towards a Prodigy 2.0 compared to a Reverie 8Q or even a Reverie 9T? By the way, do you have a Reverie 9T review here?

    • @ Bill.

      Thank you for your question, Bill. That’s a very good question you have raised. The ONE difference that would make me buy a Leggett and Prodigy 2.0 instead of the Reverie 8Q is the Wall Hugging feature of the former. Like we mention on the above Reverie 8Q review, lack of the wall hugger feature can be very bad on your back and neck unless you’re 18 years old! For those of us who are older, wall hugging is an essential feature to keep us close to the night stand even when the head of the adjustable bed is raised. If you go through the Reverie 8Q manufacturer specs, it will say that the bed has wall hugging. But as we’ve shown on the comparison image above, the degree of wall hugging is relatively poor on the Reverie beds. However, understand that the better wall hugging on the Prodigy bed comes at around an additional cost of $200. But divide that $200 by 10 years (3650 days) and you’re investing only around 5 cents a night for a healthy back and neck.
      Hope we solved your problem!
