It gives somewhat better performance and tends to remain cooler than the My Pillow. It tends to hold its shape better. It is, however, more expensive.

I use the Serta Scrunch also and found it less expensive than the My Pillow. Maybe it depends where you buy it. I like it a lot for all the reasons you mentioned.

As one who needs a new pillow, thank you for mentioning My Pillow. Why do you think this pillow contributes to you sleeping longer and better?

A review is definitely needed. Smile

I can only guess as to why it might contribute to my sleeping longer and better, but I suspect that's because it holds its shape and there's no "sinkhole" like there used to be with other pillows. That being the case, it might keep my mask in place better than before and I avoid tossing and turning so much.

For those who might be interested in purchasing one, I strongly suggest doing a Google search which will enable you to see both positive and negative reviews, as well as the WIDELY varying prices and numerous discounts which are available. One thing I did notice was that many of the negative reviews were from a few years ago and it was suggested by some that the "formula" has changed since then. I've no idea whether or not that's true.

Thanks DMR1 for your response. I also want to thank everyone else too for their input on the My Pillow and other ones.

When I went to Amazon's site to look at the reviews for My Pillow, I also noticed one for Snuggle Pedic that looked impressive with a 90 day guarantee. It also seems the company will custom make a pillow with a specific firmness level for free if the customer is unhappy with that issue regarding the initial purchase. If I purchase a new pillow, I might go in this direction first.

The My Pillow comes in 4 or five different firmnesses or at least it did back when I bought mine. The firmness ends up being how tightly packed the pillow is with the stuffing.

It may be a fine product, but if you Google it, you'll find lots of complaints. Like most "as advertised on TV" products, the hype often exceeds the reality, and some products with a "money back guarantee" are next to impossible to return and actually get a refund. Buyer beware. Getting one through Amazon would be the best bet.

You can google almost anything and find as many complaints as their are satisfied people.

You just have to sort through all the hype and realize that their are people who will be unhappy no matter what they use.

I have personally used the My Pillow, and find it quite comfortable.

I am not recommending that anyone use this pillow or any other.

Just like your CPAP mask, you will either love it, or hate it. It's a personal preference.
Sleep-well
