Of course, a troll won't care about that kind of thing. He'll just cling on to a ridiculous argument, and continually insult people who point out that what he's saying makes no bleeding sense whatsoever.

Most of the "Memory foam" manufacturers seem to do a 60 / 100 day free trial - if you don't get on with it, you can return it: it may be worth trying one of those (though I suspect getting it back in the box may be ... um ... interesting). There may be "in original condition" caveats on it, so if you or your SO are prone to night sweating ...
My feeling is: stuff that - the foam in my chair squashes loads in just a couple of years, so a mattress made of the stuff will probably need replacing fairly quickly ... I could be completely wrong though.

1 - If polyurethane, or similarly composed material, if it's not properly cured it will emit very low levels of formaldehyde. This, over time, causes some very serious chronic illnesses.
2 - If made in China (you can be sure of that, if not now, soon) then the chances of poor quality control is significantly greater than substantial.
We've had a foam mattress for about a year now and so far, we like it. We call it the marshmallow because it 'hugs you and never lets you go'. I like it because I don't move every time my partner does and it is supportive where it needs to be.
It does depend on what position you sleep in though. I don't think it is comfortable for sleeping on your stomach.
I find it a little warmer than springs but not uncomfortably so.
We've had a TempurPedic (sp?) for eight plus years. It's very comfortable to lie/lay/whatever on. You don't get pressure points like you can with other types of mattresses. Noticeable difference when we are in a hotel.
It is a bit warmer than a regular mattress. Being at the point of chronological development where my wife has, ah, temperature regulation difficulties, we tend to have windows open at night.
Overall, it's been a good experience, though not perfect.
Contemplating going to a local store that carries Purple https://purple.com/ mattresses and give them a test lay/lie/whatever.
I've had 2 tempurpedics, over the last 14 years. I get warm but adjust blankets accordingly. I like that my SO can toss and turn without my side moving. I really notice that when traveling with hotel mattresses. I tried the purple one at a store for a few minutes. I found the Sleep Number to be most compelling next bed - the adjustable firmness is of interest, along with a heating/cooling option.
In this country (Norway), foam mattresses have been the rule for kids' beds, cabins and campers, for 50+ years. When you grow up, you get a "real" mattress at home.
In mountain cabins, you accept anyting, even a twenty year old sloppy old 5 cm thick mat. It is still better than putting your sleeping bag directly on the wood.
If you're planning for something more comfortable, such as in your camper, you should select a double mattress: A bottom 10 cm firm foam mattress, and on top of that, an "eggshell" mattess that has a 5 cm solid layer with a 5 cm layer of bumps, like in an egg carton. The eggshell is the under side of the top mattress. If you are a heavyweight, the top mattress should be as firm as possible; more lightweight people prefer a softer top mattress.
The eggshell foam mattresses are reasonably acceptable, even for a multi-week vacation. But I admit that I still feel sort of relief when I get home to my "real" mattress
Our service provider send us mail(in Japanese) that our fire alarms lifetime has expired, they need to do some service. To get the service, I will have to install a mobile app. And through mobile app I will have to send an email to schedule. All was good until I ran the software and advertisement start to pop, advertisement that I can't avoid. Well, I am paying for their service, I don't want to see advertisement. I call them and refuse to use the app, they said they will call me back and never got a phone call from them. I don't know how to retaliate. And it is making elephanting! angry!
I do not fear of failure. I fear of giving up out of frustration.
I have found excellent success by calling the president of a company after a couple rounds of the old 'run around'. Take notes as to who said what, etc. Then call and complain; amazing how quickly problems can be resolved.
My all time best was in the mid '80s. I had ordered a large Oldsmobile car (3 small children required car seats in the rear bench). After 4 months the dealer was pressuring me to skip the options I ordered and just accept a vehicle in their stock.
I did a little research (pre-Internet), and called the president of General Motors early the next morning (8am his time, 6am my time). Spoke to his secretary, explained my predicament and noting that American car companies were complaining about poor sales while I was trying to buy one.
Two hours later when I arrived at my office I had a message to call the regional vice president of Oldsmobile. He apologized for the delay, had found my order and moved it up at the factory, that it would be built on Wednesday the following week, and be delivered the week after!
