...with ​Williamsburg Plus vs Prodigy 2.0 vs S-Cape 2.0 Comparison

​We have organized this Leggett & Platt Williamsburg adjustable bed review into ​four major sections. They are:

  1. SIX major PROS of the Williamsburg adjustable bed
  2. FOUR ​major ​CONS of the Williamsburg adjustable bed
  3. Summary and Conclusion
  4. Williamsburg vs Prodigy 2.0 vs S-Cape adjustable bed comparison

Let's begin this Williamsburg review by looking at the major benefits of this Leggett and Platt ​bed.

6 Major Pros of the Leggett & Platt Williamsburg Adjustable Bed

Leggett and Platt Williamsburg Pillow Tilting

​1. Pillow Tilting

​Most adjustable beds have only head tilting. In addition, ​the Williamsburg ​​comes with pillow tilting which lets you straighten your upper body by an additional 15 degrees ​raising you up to 75 degrees. Pillow tilting ​is great if you plan on watching TV from bed, working from bed or having breakfast in bed. ​

Williamsburg Programmable memory positions

​2. Programmable Positions

​The remote has two buttons for Zero Gravity and Anti-Snore. These are factory preset positions, but you can 'reprogram' them to whatever position you want using the "SET" button on the remote. In comparison, this ​model ​has 4 programmable memory positions​.

Leggett and Platt Williamsburg wall hugging

​3. Wall Hugging

​Regular adjustable beds take you away from the nightstand when the upper body is raised. Beds with wall hugging simultaneously slide back while the upper body is being raised so that you stay right next to the nightstand. If you haven't seen our video on the 6 most critical features of adjustable beds, please watch that for an explanation of the benefits of wall hugging.

WIlliamsburg Massage

​4. Therapeutic Massage

​Two-motor, head and foot dual massage with 'wave' ​feature. Massage intensity can be adjusted for head and foot regions independently of each other. Massage can ​be set to automatically turn off ​(timer). Most adjustable beds have the massage feature these days. However, ​on some of the cheaply built models, massage is merely a vibration.

Williamsburg Price

​5. Competitively Priced

​The Leggett ​& Platt Williamsburg adjustable bed shares most of the major features with ​its extremely popular big brother, the Leggett & Platt Prodigy 2.0, yet  ​is priced approximately $1000 less than its big brother (for a split-king ​bed)! Here is another similarly priced, high-quality adjustable bed with almost every feature you can imagine. From a price standpoint, ​the DM9000s is ​a major competitor to the Williamsburg.

Williamsburg Miscellaneous Features

​6. Miscellaneous Features

  • ​Under-bed night light
  • Flash light on remote
  • 2 USB ports on either side
  • Bluetooth (​Richmat App)
  • ​Backlit wireless remote controller
  • One-touch flat button
  • Steel frame
  • Weight-lifting capacity of ​850 pounds
  • Free shipping
  • 10-year extended warranty

​4 Major Cons of the Leggett & Platt Williamsburg Adjustable Bed

​Like everything else in life, the Leggett & Platt Williamsburg isn't perfect. While it has the above described pros, it also has the following cons. But ​most people don't need these following features and will be happy with what the Williamsburg has to offer.

Leggett and Platt Prodigy 2.0 Elite Comfort Adjustable Bed

Prodigy 2.0 Elite Comfort with Lumbar Support

​1. No Lumbar Support

The Lumbar support feature isn't really needed unless you need extra support on your lower back. If you need lumbar support, we recommend this bed.

Adjustable bed with furniture style design

​​Reverie 9T with a Furniture-style bottom deck

​2. No Furniture-style ​design

​The Williamsburg doesn't have a furniture style deck. If you want to use your adjustable bed as a standalone bed and skip a bed frame, we recommend this bed.

Glideaway Elevation Adjustable Bed Review 4 Articulations

​​Glideaway Elevation adjustable bed with 'Elevation Lift'

​3. ​No ​Elevation Lift

As we mentioned earlier, only the Glideaway brand, one of our ​top rated ​adjustable bed manufacturers of 2019, produces beds with elevation lift. Elevation lift allows you to raise your whole body in a Reverse Trendelenburg Position. You don't need this position or the expensive bed unless you have night time heartburn/acid reflux. Both the Glideaway Elevation and Ascend have this articulation.

Height adjustable legs of the Reverie 7S adjustable bed

​4. ​Fixed-Height Legs

​​Today's best adjustable beds come with height-adjustable legs e.g. legs ​can be adjusted to​ ​5, 7, 9 inches etc. so that people can raise of lower their beds based on ​personal preference. The Williamsburg has 7" fixed height legs. 99% of the beds (e.g. sleigh beds, wooden frames) come with fixed height legs!

Hope these Pros and Cons have given you a fairly good idea about the major strengths and weaknesses of the Williamsburg adjustable bed. You should understand that none of the 'Cons' we listed are actually weaknesses of the Williamsburg. It doesn't have features like elevation lift and lumbar support and 99% of adjustable bed users won't need them. Only those who have nighttime heartburns and back pains need those features. For the average user, the Leggett & Platt Williamsburg has everything he/she can expect at this competitive price.

​Conclusion:

​The Leggett & Platt Williamsburg would be ​the ​go to bed for most adjustable bed shoppers. It lacks certain bells and whistles like elevation lift, lumbar support and furniture-style decking. But, as we point out on ​our ​best adjustable bed ​selection criteria, these 3 features are highly optional. These 3 featurs are required by certain categories of people.

  • Who needs an adjustable bed with elevation lift?
    • Seniors that find it difficult to lower themselves on to a bed due to painful knees
    • Heartburn sufferers
  • Who needs adjustable beds with lumbar support?
    • Those who need extra support on their lower backs
  • Who needs adjustable beds with furniture-style decking?
    • Those who don't want to place their beds inside a wooden frame

So, if you don't belong to any of the above 3 categories, the Williamsburg adjustable bed will do just fine. Hope this Williamsburg Plus adjustable bed review helped you make the right decision and please let us know whether you found it useful or not!!


Happy adjustable bed shopping!
