Updated January 25, 2022

Serta iComfort CF3000 Hybrid Medium Mattress

The iComfort CF3000 Hybrid Medium mattress is a medium-feeling mattress in the iComfort Hybrid collection by Serta. Of the six iComfort Hybrid models this one is right in the middle of the group in price, comfort, and cooling layers.  We've put together the information that we know about this bed and have it for you here:

Comfort Scale Rating

The CF3000 Medium mattress will be a medium comfort that we rate a 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, though if you prefer a softer or firmer feeling mattress then you should consider another model.

Pressure Test Results

Once we receive the mattress we'll pressure test the iComfort CF3000 Hybrid Medium mattress with small, average, and large body size people on their sides and on their back sleeping positions to see what kind of support and comfort you can expect. (Learn how we test.)

A medium mattress like this typically tests extremely well for back sleepers during the pressure testing phase of our expert review process.  However, a medium-feeling mattress can go either way for side sleepers.  Sometimes they're great at relieving pressure and sometimes not.  It's really on a bed-by-bed basis how well they perform for the people who sleep on their sides.

While you're waiting for us to update this review with testing data you can use the sleeper images in the test results below as a sample of what a bed with a similar feel will look like in the test images.

Warranty

The iComfort CF3000 Hybrid Medium mattress comes with a 10-year warranty against factory defects.

Conclusion

Right in the middle of the newest iComfort Hybrid collection, the CF3000 Hybrid Medium mattress is one of the best. This is a medium-feeling mattress that will appeal to almost everyone. It has several layers of cooling technology as denoted by the three snowflakes stitched onto the foot of the bed. Try the plush mattress for a softer option. 

The Max Cold™ Cover is cool-to-the-touch, and the UltraCold System™ paired with Carbon Fiber Memory Foam works hard to absorb excess heat from your body, then channel it away, all while you sleep comfortably.  Once we get ahold of one of these beds we'll report back with how well or unwell it did during pressure testing as well.

At around $2,200 for a Queen size mattress, the CF3000 Hybrid Medium represents a considerable financial investment. While it's cheaper than the higher-end models it's a little more expensive than the lower-end ones. I do think that the CF3000 Hybrid Medium is one of the better hybrid models in the new iComfort line, it's an excellent choice. You get multiple layers of cooling technology but pay less than the top end of this collection.
