Hubbard is clear about her intent in her book. Her goal is to awaken and "galvanize" thousands of us to change our way of thinking, no, our way of being. She has already sparked tens of thousands and I am sure we will meet our goal of 100 million by December 22. This is not "woo woo" stuff. There is evolutionary science to back up her assertions. We certainly can and will meet some kind of critical mass by the end of this year, Mayan prophecies aside, and it is clearly our choice which way we go. It is definitely a book that is just in time...for those of us with ears to hear and eyes to see and hearts to open. siouxlu
You will notice that this review is not an "Amazon Verified Purchase" -- I bought it from the MYPillow web-site because, as others have noted, there are plenty of coupons available to take 25% off. I also got a $10 discount buying 2 pillows on the same order and those offers aren't available through amazon.com .
I decided to try it based on the 60 day warranty -- not much to lose, I figured. I have problems with my neck and have ongoing battles with my pillows. I've paid a small fortune for pillows and have a small walk-in closet half-filled with tried and discarded pillows -- so what's another pair?
After unpacking the pillows (and watching them miraculously expand) I placed them both in the drier as the instructions suggested. I did notice a slight chemical smell. I had to push my nose into the pillow to smell it, but my nose is going to be right next to that pillow all night long, and I am bothered by smells so this was important to me. After ten minutes in the dryer on medium, I still noticed a little of the smell so I put them in for ten minutes more. A hint of odor remained so I tried it on 'high' - a calculated risk on my part since I was fairly certain that the warranty would be invalid if I burnt them to a crisp. The extra temperature did the trick (and no harm) and I've not noticed any more smell since. The pillows also fluffed up quite a bit more after being put in the dryer. I am very sensitive to chemical smells and have had to put items into the garage for a week or more to out-gas chemicals when they have a strong odor. I was prepared to do that here, but it turned out to be unnecessary .
I bought one blue-level fill, which is recommended for a large man, and a green-level fill which is recommended for a woman, side-sleeper, with relatively wide shoulders. I normally use a pillow with the highest level of support because I need extra support for my neck and, even though I am relatively petite, I have "swimmers-shoulders" (inherited from my maternal grandmother's side of the family.) My husband usually likes a high-to-moderate fill pillow so I reasoned that we could switch them back and forth to see which was more comfortable for each of us -- or return for a re-fill or refund, if needed.
It turned out that I like the blue-level (higher fill) and my husband prefers the green-level (moderate fill for a man his size.) We have been using them for about a week and I've noticed that my husband does not wake himself or me with his snoring as he used to. He seems to sleep soundly through the night -- which is great for me too, since I'm a light sleeper due to pain issues. So far, we like them very much (with the adjustments we made for personal comfort) and we're both sleeping much better. I am no longer awakened periodically throughout the night with neck pain, although my hip pain continues to wake me at 3 am most nights, just in time for a scheduled dose of pain medication -- which I would happily sleep through. I must admit, though, that I have slept through to 7 am a few nights which is not something that has ever happened before. Perhaps the hip pain does not wake me up as early if my neck is comfortable?
Unlike one other reviewer, I was not bothered by any crackling noise in the pillow. When I first put my head on the pillow I listened for it and I could here a slight sound, but not enough to bother me and I have not noticed it since.
My conclusions: If you are obsessive-compulsive about following directions (as I am) and follow the steps to prepare your pillow for use and are willing to work with the company to make adjustments as needed, you will most likely be happy with this pillow. If you are more like my husband and will sleep on whatever is under your head when you fall asleep (and can't believe that a pillow comes with instructions!) you may or may not like this pillow. I'm sure my spouse would not have even gotten as far as ordering this thing so I can't say how he'd like it if I didn't try to "manage" our bedding.
UPDATE 02/17/2013): After almost 9 months of use, I continue to be very pleased with these pillows. After maybe a month or so of use, the pillow does start to mat down a little -- I put it in the dryer for 10 minutes on medium and it is fully "fluffed" and good as new. I have washed the My Pillows several times and they come out clean smelling and completely plumped up. I must add that I have *never* successfully washed any other pillow I've purchased, no matter what I spent on them. In fact, the more expensive pillows I've purchased have fared the worst: coming out of the wash lumpy and misshapen or deflated and not as plump or with the same loft as before.
I'm completely happy with My Pillow and would recommend them to anyone -- with one caveat: pay attention to the information on sizing and be sure to adapt it for your own preferences as to fill-level of the pillow. In my opinion, their web-site over emphasizes the idea that you will not want or need to have a high-loft pillow. In my experience, I have always needed a high loft and have often resorted to multiple pillows to get the height I need. If this is true for you, pay attention to your own instincts and order the higher fill-level.
Also, call the company and ask them to adjust the fill-level on your pillow if it is not to your liking (adding more filling if it isn't high enough or removing some if it is too high.) Once you have run the pillow through the dryer to remove any residual smell (multiple times if need be) and gotten the appropriate fill-level you may find, as I have, that this really is the last pillow you'll ever buy. Good luck!
This is one terrific lens! It solves the problem of wide-angle coverage in the 1.6 FOVCF very nicely. As others have pointed out, the mechanical build and optical quality (with 3 Aspherical elements and 1 Super-UD) probably deserve an "L" stamp and a red ring. This lens appears to be of almost identical build, quality and size as the EF 17-40mm f/4.0 L USM. Even uses the same 77mm filter size as most of the L's. Overall sharpness is excellent, with maybe a little softness towards the corners at 10mm, but I've seen comparisons with other ultra-wide zooms like the Sigma and the Canon blows them away! CA is well controlled too. There is slight Barrel and Pincushion distortions present at the low and high ends, but less than would be expected for a lens this wide. All in all this is one of the best wide-angle zooms available.
The major criticism of this lens usually comes down to; "well, how long will Canon continue to make 1.6 FOVCF cameras?" or "Someday I might upgrade to a Full Frame camera, then what will I do with this lens?" I doubt very seriously that Canon will do away with the APS-C cameras any time soon. My reasoning is that:
1. Canon just came out with the Full Frame 5D at the $3000 price point. Introducing a FF camera to replace the 20D at $1500 would kill the 5D after only a few months.
2. Having the EF-S lens line already established almost guarantees keeping the 1.6 format - mostly because of this lens. To be able to use the EF-S 10-22mm, a chip can't really go any bigger than 1.6 since this seems to be the limit of the useable coverage. Using a 1.5 or 1.4 sensor for example would probably start to introduce significant fall-off at the corners of the larger chip.
As I am writing this, the PMA conference is only four days away. My prediction is that Canon will announce a replacement for the 20D that will, in essence be a 1.6 FOVCF version of the 5D. They will probably increase the (already excellent) density of the 20D's CMOS by shrinking pixel size down to around 5 micron yielding something around the 10 mega-pixel range to compete with the Nikon D200. Maybe they will call the camera the 50D after the 5D since they can't really use the name 30D because D30 was already used.
In any case, my point is that the 1.6 APS-C format will likely be around for some time to come, until the point where the FF price point drops enough to warrant discontinuing the xxD line. Even then, when that happens, doesn't mean you'll throw your 20D in the trash! You'll still want to keep using it and/or sell it, and having this lens will significantly increase its usefulness or resale value.
Now, having said all that, this is the only EF-S lens I plan on buying. From the reviews I've read, the other EF-S lenses are of significantly lesser quality, and all of your other lens needs can be met with standard EF lenses anyway, APS-C or otherwise. Plus you get the option to buy L glass.
So, bottom line is buying this particular EF-S lens for a 20D or XT is a no-brainer. It's the best solution for wide angle in this format. Hesitating to buy it because "I might get a FF camera someday" is also nonsensical. What I might do in the future is just that, for the future. Not buying a mid-priced car today because "someday" I might buy a Ferrari doesn't satisfy my use and enjoyment of the car today!
