Rated 5 out of 5 by CatVais Pleasently Surprised!
I was pleasently surprised with this pillow. I can not stand having a cpap machine and struggled for a month and a half getting used to it. I finally got the right mask but was having problems using a regular pillow. As I fell asleep, I would smoosh my face into the pillow which broke the seal on the mask I was using. I ordered this pillow as a "whatever" purchase due to being frustrated with the whole cpap process. This pillow was amazingly comfortable and the "cut outs" on the sides were perfect for the mask to sit in without breaking the seal. I am very picky when it comes to pillows. I even travel with my own pillows due to being so particular about the size, firmness, etc. This pillow was a perfect fit and I slept on it the first night I got it.
There was a slight "factory" oder to it when it arrived but I took it out and aired it out before using and it was fine. I also noticed that with the mask on I couldn't smell anything anyway!

This pillow replaces an old worn-out foam pillow. It is an excellent product, much better than the old foam pillow...

Rated 3 out of 5 by None Not as comfortable & effective as I had hoped.
The customer service department, especially Kate Ambrose is fantastic. They respond quickly and accurately to questions or issues. As for the pillow it is not as comfortable as I had hoped for. It is small and the holes on each side for the mask are either not big enough or the pillow case covers part of them up. I have been using it but may look at other CPAP options. May work for others though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by YourNotMe The cut-outs in the pillow keep the cpap headgear from moving. Works better than expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nanahooks Improves sleep quality
I purchased the pillow for my husband, he reports better support for his head and neck than from normal shaped pillow. He can sleep on either his side or his back.
The cover is washable. If an additional cover is desired, it would be a smaller pillow size as this pillow is smaller than a regular sized pillow.
Pricing - I think most pillows are overpriced, this one included. But when you require a special item, you may not be able to pay a price you are happy with.

Rated 2 out of 5 by luckyl7 Disappointing
I read the reviews of this product and was excited to receive it. The first night I slept on it I woke up with a pinched nerve in my upper back. Ok, figured I slept wrong and read the insert with the pillow saying give it some time because a new pillow requires a break in period. So I kept trying. The cutouts on the side are wonderful. But it threw my neck and back out of alignment. I tried it with a different pillow under it and that helped a bit. After about a month of trying to use it I have given up. It just isn't comfortable and I woke up every day with pain while using this pillow. So I am back to using my old pillow and having my mask smooshed into my face. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Delainessister Provides great night's sleep
I just got my new CPAP pillow, which is why I couldn't comment on the quality or durability, but wow, what a difference it made. I had no problems whatsoever with air leaks and slept really well. I think that is quite the testament because I've only had my CPAP machine for less than a week so I'm still in the adjustment phase. I also did not notice any odor problems as some reviewers mentioned, nor did I need a second pillow underneath. For me, even though a smaller pillow, it was perfectly fine all by itself. Probably just a personal preference thing; I'm used to sleeping with a firm pillow for side sleepers. Love it!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SheilaVA Finally, Help for C-Pap Users
I've been using my C-Pap machine for three years, and each night I would struggle to be comfortable when I lay on my side. The mask would fit fine when I was standing or laying on my back, but when I turned on either side it would move and air would blow in my eyes, etc. When I use this pilow, the cut-out places allow my mask to remain where it was and I don't have to wake up and shift over and over. The support parts of the pillow also are comfortable and keep my neck from aching. Now, you need to have for purchase special pillow cases so that this pillow will last longer - and your pillow could be more festive.
