Tests & Verdict

Here we collect tests, guides and product reviews so that you can create a picture of what others think about the product. This analysis and review is based on my experience and 12+ years of industry insight.

The selling price of this product will appeal heavily to those on a budget and the reviews to date for this mattress have shown that people with reasonable expectations have found that it is comfortable and provides a good nights sleep.

The 5 year guarantee as standard across all Bensons for Beds products is fantastic value and not often seen at this type of price from competing retailers.

Although the firm tension mattress is great for those who are looking for a back and stomach sleeping mattress that offers both comfort and support, it can be a bit too firm for some people, particularly side sleepers and those with a lower BMI than average. Those who prefer a softer mattress may find that the firm tension mattress is too firm for their liking.

Why our sleep experts loved it

Are you looking for a mattress that offers both comfort and support at a heavily discounted and reduced price point? Then you should consider the Bensons for Beds Jax Mattress. This product is designed with open coil springs and a firm tension mattress, making it perfect for back sleepers. In this review, we’ll discuss the benefits of the Jax Mattress, the pros and cons of a firm tension mattress, and the hypoallergenic materials used in the construction of this product. We’ll also learn more about Bensons for Beds and whether this could be the mattress for you.

The Base Layer

When it comes to the base layer you are getting a fairly budget open coil traditional spring base. There are benefits to open coils that we’ll go into shortly but it should come as little surprise to you that this isn’t a premium base layer, although should last a decent amount of time while still offering a good degree of support. The benefits for this system is that it is designed to provide support while still allowing the mattress to contour to the shape of your body. This makes it great, in this particular firmness designation, for back, and stomach sleepers. The open coil springs also help to reduce motion transfer (albeit not as good as pocket springs), making it a great option for couples. Another benefit to this type of base layer is within its cooling properties whereby the open coil spring system also helps to keep the product cooler. The coils are designed to allow air to circulate through the mattress, which helps to keep it cool and comfortable. This is great for those who tend to sleep hot, as it can help to keep them cool and comfortable throughout the night.

The Comfort Layer

Onto the comfort layer and you get a fairly deep degree of polyester fillings. This is a fairly basic comfort layer that is cheap and affordable for the supplier, but still comfortable enough for the customer. Polyester also has a few hypoallergenic properties that make it an ideal candidate for those who suffer from allergies.This means that the mattress is designed to resist dust mites, pet dander, and other allergens, which can help to reduce allergy symptoms and improve sleep quality. These same hypoallergenic materials also help to keep the bed fresh and clean as the materials are designed to resist mould, mildew, and bacteria, which can help to reduce odour and keep the mattress looking and feeling new. 

Final Thoughts

When you’re looking for a mattress, comfort is key. You want to be able to sleep in comfort, without worrying about waking up feeling tired or sore. The Bensons for Beds Jax Mattress offers a reasonable attempt at this with a compromised base and comfort layer that comes in at a heavily discounted price over competing products while still offering a good degree of comfort and tension to prove suitable.

  • Side Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • If you sleep on your side you typically need a supportive tension that is not too firm, nor too soft. This is because your hips and shoulders need adequate sinkage.
  • Stomach Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Stomach sleepers need a reasonable amount of tension in the base support layer to adequately offer body contouring and help prevent aches and pains. Results will vary based on your build.

Very good mattress, for my daughter who seems very comfortable. Price is good too. Bensons do need to calm down a bit on their review emails though, received 3 requests for a review before we'd even had the mattress delivered.
