Default Shopping for a new mattress, anyone have a latex or visco memory foam bed?

like the title says, I am looking to buy a new mattress (king size) and have been looking at a lot of different options including foam and latex beds (like tempurpedic but they are too overpriced). I have found several that seem suitable and are either a proprietary memory foam, specifically a memory foam bed made by Serta, on sale for $1600 no tax, free sheets, 30 year warranty, this is a very comfortable bed and the low-end of the price spectrum, I have also found a Sealy latex and foam bed for a similar price, feel is a bit firmer, there are also numerous other beds which are a combination of latex and foam, some are latex only, with prices ranging from $1500-2500.

I have chronic pain in my back and hip and am very sensitive to pressure in those areas, so I require a fairly soft sleep surface, I think that I want to get away from a bed with springs but am unsure of how these somewhat unconventional beds will hold-up over time and how they will actually work in the real world and not in the bed store showroom, so my question is, who has experience with these type of mattresses?

I'm going back and forth between the foam/latex stuff or the high-end Simmons beauty rest pillow top with memory foam and latex in the cover for about $2300, this bed feels very good for a spring bed, but only has a 10 year warranty while the foam and latex beds typically have at least 20, so can I really expect to spend the same amount of money and have the mattress last twice as long?

any serious input is welcome

this is what I am hearing about the memory foam, and it seems like a lot of the manufacturers are discontinuing the foam tops and going to strictly latex

which foam bed did you have?

Last year I stayed for a week at a hotel in ATL that had the Tempurpedic mattress. Personally I think it's too firm (hard would be the more appropriate adjective), but that's just my impression. I wouldn't buy it for my bed.

I tend to agree, initially I thought the model the guy showed me was amazing, but after looking around at a lot more stores and trying a lot more beds, then going back to that same tempurpedic, I think it is quite firm, and a complete and total ripoff @ $4k

Before you go crazy and buy something really expensive....considering trying a mattress topper first. My mattress wasn't doin it for me, it was about 6 years old and showing some wear. I got a 4" memory foam topper. I got a hypoallergenic zip cover which wraps around the whole thing which also took care of the heat issue, at least for me anyways. It's like an entirely new bed, and it only cost me like $140 on overstock.com. Since i've ordered a topper for every other bed in the house, and anyone who sleeps in the guest bed says it is amazing and a few people have since bought the same topper. Just my 2 cents, it may work for you too.

I have a Tempurpedic bed and let me tell you, if you have chronic pain and are covered by insurance then maybe they could pick up the bill

My father is 64 years old and has had hip surgery becuase he had a shattered hip when younger(Army Lieutenant, 22 tanks he was in charge of, bullet shattered his hip). Anyway, his insurance company Blue Cross/Blue Shield took the bill on our beds for the house and we paid literally nothing.

I'veb been sleeping on the Tempurpedic adjustable mattress for the past 10 months and let me tell you, I love it! My back used to get sore from the spring beds but after the switch it was amazing.

Mattress firm has a test bed that lays you down and tells you what is best for your sleeping type. Thought it was a gimmick but the laying on the bed tells the systems how your body lays and then it tells you the best type of bed for you. They then show you all the beds that are organized around their store.
