Serta iComfort CF1000 Medium Mattress Review

Updated November 5, 2022

iComfort CF1000 Medium Lifestyle - couple laying on bed in room

The iComfort CF1000 Medium mattress is the entry-level model in the iComfort collection by Serta. It has a few layers of cooling material just like the higher-end models but is cheaper than the other 5 beds in this collection. It has tested exceptionally well for relieving pressure on your peak pressure points and providing back support for proper spinal alignment. If you're considering this mattress please read our expert review here:

Comfort Scale Rating

The CF1000 Medium mattress is a medium comfort that we rate 5 on our 10 point Comfort Scale (a 1 is hard, 10 is softest). This mattress comfort will appeal to most people because it’s not too hard or too soft. On the other hand, if you prefer a softer or firmer feeling mattress then you'd probably like one of the other models in the iComfort collection.

The CF1000 Medium Features in Detail

  1. 1. Cool To The Touch Cover

    The cover for this mattress is cool-to-touch which gives you a cooler feeling to help you drift off to sleep. This is the first layer of several that works to provide you with a temperature-neutral sleep environment.

  2. 2. Carbon Fiber Memory Foam

    A  first-of-its-kind memory foam layer infused with carbon fiber for cooling as well as strength and resiliency. This system channels heat away from your body and provide exceptional strength for back and neck support.

  3. 3. 3” EverCool® Fuze Gel Memory Foam

    This open-celled memory foam helps promote airflow, so you don’t have that hot, stuffy feeling when falling asleep. This foam also conforms to your body's curves for proper support and extra comfort. 

  4. 4. Serta Balanced Support Foam

    The layer of support foam gives you conforming support for added pressure point relief. This is the first layer of the foundational foams that provide you with stability and comfort while contouring to your curves regardless of sleep position or body size.

  5. 5. Serta Foam Core

    The core foam upon which the rest of the foam layers rests. This foam is the firm part of the bed, it's the foundation for the comfort materials in the top part of the bed which also gives you conforming support

Conclusion 

The CF1000 Medium mattress is the entry-level 'CF' model in the iComfort collection by Serta. Being the first of six mattresses, the CF1000 is the most affordable of all. It has a medium feeling which is good for most people. It also makes a great compromise if you and your sleep partner have different comfort preferences.

This mattress performed exceptionally well during the pressure testing phase of our expert review. The CF1000 earned a 'recommended' score for all body sizes and sleep positions. It has excellent pressure-relieving capabilities and outstanding back support for proper spinal alignment.

While this is the lowest priced of the CF iComfort models it still has quality features. It has the same Carbon Fiber Memory Foam as all the other CF models, even the top-end ones. This foam draws heat away from your body and expels it outward for a cooler night's sleep. The Cool Touch Cover is a nice feature as well with its cool-to-touch feeling. The choice is what you want to pay vs. how much you want out of your mattress.

If you're looking to save money while still getting a high-quality mattress then the CF1000 is an excellent choice. You get some of the cooling materials that are common in the CF models, though there aren't as many as any of the other models in this collection. If the price is less of a concern and you want more cooling comfort layers then I'd recommend you look into one of the other CF models in the iComfort collection. I do recommend this bed to anyone who wants great pressure relief and conforming support from a trusted brand like Serta.
