Of course getting an adjustable bed frame is convenient for watching TV and reading in bed, but did you know they can also help improve your overall health? There are numerous different positions you can place yourself in, and certain ones can target joint pain, back pain, and even help your significant other stop aggressively snoring (hopefully).
While we can’t say all these problems will be solved 100% of the time with an adjustable base, there are people out there who claim it’s really helped. My (Slumber Yard McKenzie Dillon) significant other snored like a lawn mower before we got our Lucid Adjustable Base, now I sleep soundly through the night without having someone snorting in my ear. But aside from all that, it’s still a nice way to relax in bed with a good book or your favorite Netflix show. So if that’s the main reason you want one, we don’t blame you.
Buying an adjustable base online is pretty different from purchasing one in-store, aside from the fact you can do it from the comfort of your own home. One downside with the Sealy bed frames is that they are all not always available at your preferred retailer. For instance, US-Mattress and Amazon both offer the Ease 2.0, but not the upgraded models—and Sealy hasn’t really started selling through their website just yet.
Unfortunately, you won’t get a risk-free trial like you would with an online mattress, so make sure you’re confident in your purchase decision before you fully commit. But you will receive a nationwide limited warranty which protects you from manufacturing defects. If you’re curious about the details of it, head over to the company’s website and check out the warranty section.
Usually a brand will focus on making one adjustable base, but Sealy went ahead and gave the people three different bases to choose from. Here’s a quick summary of what you can expect from each base:
Here’s a helpful chart to map out the major differences between each model so you can see for yourself.
If you’re wondering what a pillow tilt is, it adjusts the very top of your bed frame so your head is perfectly positioned to look towards your TV with little to zero effort. It’s the main feature that makes the Ergo Extend stand out from Ergo.
The other is that Ergo has two massage zones while the Ergo Extend model has four; one more in the head and foot. Most people will be perfectly fine with two though, so we wouldn’t call that a major selling point for Ergo Extend.
So is it worth the extra money to splurge for Ergo Extend for a pillow tilt and a massager with a little more vibration? We’ll get into the pricing details pretty shortly, but here’s a spoiler alert; Ergo Extend is over $500 more expensive than the Ergo. So if you ask us, we’d probably go for the middle-tier power base. Unfortunately, though, the Ease 2.0 is the most widely available of the three, and you might have trouble finding the Ergo and Ergo Extend.
You can get the Sealy Adjustable Base in a range of sizes including twin XL, queen, king, split king, CA king, and a split CA king. We really appreciate how many sizes they offer, especially since it’s difficult to find a brand who makes both a standard king, standard CA king, and split options of the two.
|Queen - Ease 2.0||~$799|
|Queen - Ergo||~$1,399|
|Queen - Ergo Extend||~$1,999|
Prices for Sealy’s adjustable bases are generally more expensive than most of the others we’ve tested like Nectar, Bear, and Nolah. Since Sealy is affiliated with the luxury bedding brand TempurPedic, however, we aren’t too surprised. Prices start at about $800 for a queen size Ease, and go all the way up to around $2,000 for a queen size Ergo Extend. We also want to note your king, split king, CA king, and split CA king will ship to your home in two boxes, and you connect them during the setup process.
If you’ve ever had to put together furniture from a retailer like IKEA or Wayfair, you have a general idea of what it’s like to put together a Sealy adjustable bed frame. All you’ll need to do is screw in the four legs of the bed frame, plug in the power chord and other cables, and combine the two bed frame sides if you get a king or CA king. Other than that, you’ll just have the trash to take care of. The whole process took us about 45 minutes with two people, and we assume you’ll have the same experience.
We want to go over a few of the features you saw on the chart earlier in this post that aren’t so self explanatory. First off is the zero gravity mode (ZG on the remote), and it’s available on all three models. This was a position first invented and used by NASA, and it almost makes you feel like you’re weightless. It also helps in improving blood flow, keeps stomach acid from entering your esophagus to prevent heartburn, helps snoring by opening airways and keeping your tongue in place, plus more.
Next is the three speed massager found on Ergo and Ergo Extend which is nice, but it didn’t knock our socks off. We aren’t saying it’s bad, but it’s pretty similar to all the other adjustable bed frames we’ve tested out. Considering the base’s prices, we thought it’d be slightly more substantial. With that said, you feel a nice little vibration and the noise isn’t distracting to the point where it’ll throw you off from your book or TV show.
Ergo and Ergo Extend also come with a flashlight, under-bed USB ports and lighting, anti-snore button, a memory button so you can program your favorite position, anti-snore mode, and a preset for watching TV.
We think the Sealy Adjustable Base is similar to a chameleon in that it’ll blend in perfectly with its surroundings. While it won’t change colors depending on its backdrop, it’ll go well with any room style or design. It’s supported by a black metal frame, and upholstered with a dark grey fabric. The Ergo Extend, however, comes with a padded metal frame that gives it a more luxurious look than the other two models.
Of course the head and foot of your adjustable base will have the ability to move up and down, but the motor on the power base was one of the quietest we’ve ever tested. It was more like a soft purr than a roar if you know what we’re talking about.
The bed frame itself is real sturdy and 100% squeak free. We think it’d even stand up against 5 kids jumping on the bed during a sleepover, and that’s what we call quality.
The last feature we want to mention is its adjustable legs. You can make them higher or lower, depending on how much space you want under the bed frame. The legs start at 3” to make the bed height 11.3”, and you can go up to a 9” leg to make the height of the bed 17.3.” While this may not be the highlight of its design, it’s definitely worth mentioning.
For the average person looking for a high quality adjustable bed frame, we’re going to have to go with the Ergo model. It has everything you could possibly want in an adjustable bed frame, and it’s moderately priced compared to the Ergo Extend.
If you have the money to spend and you like buying the best of the best, the Ergo Extend is the most premium choice and without a doubt a nice adjustable base. For those of you on a budget, we would suggest you take a look at our other adjustable bed frame reviews. There are options for similar pricing, but with more features. Unless, of course, you’re a die hard TempurPedic/Sealy fan, then we aren’t going to stop you.
