Today we're looking at the Simply Bensons Magellan, another in a long range of new, largely similar products that all fit quite nicely into the mid-range quality but at a lower tier in terms of price. This means great news for consumers and additional choice on top! Let's dive into the specs and see what we're working with.
Let's start with that support and once again we have pocket springs of a reasonable capacity. It looks like Bensons for Beds have almost completely done away with their poorer performing open coil support layers and brought in higher quality pocket spring units. This is a positive consumer-centric move that will ensure better longevity and value for money from customers although it does mean there is an awful lot of very similar products in the Bensons for Beds lineup that all look to achieve the same thing. Unnecessary, perhaps, but a great value proposition all the same. This one features a medium tension that will give a decent level of support for your back while not proving uncomfortable for side sleepers either. The result is a goldilocks effect that proves largely suitable for most people. As always mileage may vary if you are heavier or lighter than the average and those that do need additional support should consider a firmer base.
Onto the comfort layer and this mattress has layers on both sides. This means you can rotate the mattress and promote better settlement and increased durability allowing it to last for longer and give increased comfort throughout its lifespan. The comfort layer itself is powered by a white eco layer of fibres. For this price point, that's fairly reasonable and the fibres prove to be soft and deep enough to be exceptionally comfortable and cheap enough that the costs are kept low on the Magellan. The breathable nature of these fibres also means that you won't wake up throughout the night getting too hot, unlike memory foam competitors, ensuring a deeper and longer lasting nights sleep.
Finally you have that impressive 5 year guarantee. Remember, the average mattress lifespan is pegged at around 7 years and so a 5 year guarantee covers your mattress for almost its entire lifespan and goes far beyond the 1 year offered by other retailers and manufacturers. It's a great product at a great price and with the reassurance to last.
