    Food Saver's now Mattress Saver...wow. Not sure I want to buy a mattress on line now. May not ever recover from having 96% of the air knocked out of it.

    If the press doesn't kill the rats, bed bugs and other vermin that can infest even a new mattress, the vacuum will.
    Mould might survive and the springs will probably feel much older. Interesting to note the vacuum power of 1 atmosphere being able to keep this mattress compressed when only contained in a relatively thin plastic bag.
    If we had a consignment of mattresses packed like this, and we tightly filled an un-pressurised aircraft cargo bay with them, and they all lost their vacuum - what a job they would be to unload.

    Those compressed mattresses don't contain any springs, you simply can't press and roll a sprung mattress like that. (Note: I did use to sell furniture and beds for a living)

    Research would show otherwise.

    Ahh they are using a different kind of springing system. Yeah that is just a plain crappy way to make a mattress and packing it like that isn't going to do it any good either.
