Rated 4 out of 5 by TLady2 Relief for TMJ & hot flashes
I bought 2 of these pillows, one for our daughter & one for myself. We have TMJ & suffer with the effects....headaches, neck & shoulder pain....I had an Orthopedic Pillow & needed a new one & I knew our daughter was needing one too. We also like the "cool" aspect of this pillow; such a nice addition for older women with hot flashes! The pillow is a little softer than what I expected, but it still helps. It has a nice pillow cover to protect the pillow itself, nicer than others I've seen. It does have a little odor, as others have mentioned, but the smell lessens with time airing out. Our daughter noticed it too, but it didn't bother her & I expected it would, as she is very sensitive. She too, loves her new pillow! The pillow does still have a slight odor even after having it for awhile now, but I like to spray a lavender scent on my pillow at night & that seems to help too. (I spray it only on the pillow case, not the pillow itself.) I also like the warranty of 5 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love2Sleep Exceeded my expectations
I was hesitant to drop what I considered big bucks on a pillow but after waking up almost every morning with a kink in my neck and a blinding headache, I took the plunge. I normally slept on 2 pillows and I still use an extra flatter pillow under this one but it has made an incredible difference in my sleep.
The first thing I noticed was that it smelled pretty bad - like commercial processing but the packaging warns you of this and after airing it out for 3-4 days it smells just fine now. The second thing I noticed was how wonderfully cool it felt - no need to flip it like the old ones. The wave form supports my neck and also prevents me from slipping off the pillow (which I did when using my old pillows - hence crick in neck). I give it all AAAs. No neck pain, no headaches! You won't be disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by tallpearson This pillow has no memory
I really wanted to like this pillow. I own older 10 year old version of this pillow and I loved it. Over the years it started to disintegrate. This pillow is Visco-elastic memory foam which is filler to memory to keep it from sinking down. Real memory that has memory is polyurethane foam. I didn't know that at the time of ordering. I guess they added the filler because of customers complaining of memory pillows flattening down while sleeping; which is true for memory foam. Good ones are high density. This one on the other side has no memory. You apply pressure and it returns right back. It feels more like high density foam from the craft store. It does not form around your head. I'm 6' tall side sleeper and when I put my neck on the pillow pillow is fighting it back into unnatural position. I tried to push it back with my neck to keep it in natural position. Then it gives me neck pressure and headache. For 3 months me and my husband tried to sleep on this pillow and it ended on the floor every time. It is excellent for back support when watching TV. The pillow has no cooling feature. The cooling is on the upper side of pillowcase only. So you can take it off and put it on better feeling pillow. The pillow looks good and has no chemical smell. Now, if you have just the right distance of the neck versus head, this pillow just might be it for you. For us it didn't happen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jrow A Little Too Firm
For the average person, this would probably be ab excellent pillow. But, I have arthritis in 4 discs in my neck, so I haved a lot of pain when trying to sleep. I have used a pillow purchased from my chiropractor that I wanted to replace since it's a few years old, so I was hoping this would be a good replacement. Back to the chiropractor to get another from him instead. This one was just a bit too firm, and gave me a headache if I laid on my back. Problems on side as well as the center of the pillow is not quite low enough and didn't keep me aligned correctly. . If it had been just a little bit softer with a little deeper center, it would have been perfect. The quality is very good in both the pillow and cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer It's PillowTastic!
So many pillows out there, it's enough to go mad! Honestly I got this pillow based on user reviews alone and after using it for over a month you can just add my review with those others satisfied.
Its foam is soft but not to the point where your head sinks all the way down. The pillow holds your head in place. I have a tempurpedic so soon as I lie down with this bad boy my body goes into an immediate state of rest and relaxation. It's like I'm on a cloud and no part of my body is out of wack.
I wake up better, I sleep better and I wake up a lot less during the night. Great price, highly recommended.
Some people complain of the smell, didn't bother me one bit. I have a stinky 7 year old son so I know all about bad smells and this didn't bother me at all.
The only thing that would make this pillow better is if it did my taxes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Colts44 Totally Relieved my TMJ symptoms
This pillow was recommended to me by my dentist when I saw him for very painful TMJ symptoms. He suggested I try this before going to the expense of a mouthpiece. I'm so glad I did! It took about 2 months to completely get my jaw back in alignment, but I sleep on my side. If I could sleep on my back, it might have even happened quicker. But I am just thrilled the be pain free! And the pillow is so refreshingly cool. I even squished this pillow into my suitcase when I went to China. I didn't want to leave home without it! I have no idea what others are saying about an odor of some sort. I didn't smell anything unusual and I have a very sensitive nose! I highly recommend this pillow to anyone, but especially if you are having TMJ symptoms. Believe me, it's worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4mylilones Pure Comfort!!
The pillow provides perfect neck alignment and an excellent night's sleep. Using standard pillows my neck would be stiff and achy. This is the first pillow that facilitates true comfort and relaxation and the cool feel is pleasant regardless of the temperature outside. I purchased a set for the master bed and the kids fell in love with them so I took advantage of discounts and purchased them for the kids' beds as well. Love the pillows -- wish they sold replacement covers, but the company won't budge.

Rated 3 out of 5 by daFresh1 Nice pillow but not what I expected
This is a nice pillow, just as advertised. I was hoping it would be just a bit softer and I think it would be perfect for me. I'm not going to return it because it seems weird to return a pillow that you've slept on... I'm going to try walking on it and hopefully that helps to break it down and let my head sink in, juuuust a little. Right now it feels like I don't sink in at all. The foam is soft but too supportive. Pillows are hard to fall in love with, you have to keep looking until you find "the right one"... that can be expensive, especially if your current situation causes pain and you need a good solution. I'm still hoping this works out but after 2 weeks, not so much.
