I do not know about any of the negative points you bring up. But I do know this:
I have severe insomnia from tragic events in my life. I have not slept more than 4 hours a night in 10 years.
I bought My Pillow 2 months ago, (no, it was not $100. I received 3 large pillows and 2 smaller travel pillows for $100. About the same price as your Wal Mart 'best' pillows.)
I have not slept better in 20 years. I am not suggesting it is a perfect sleep. I am not saying my tragic PTSD episodes effecting my sleep are gone and life is now a dream.
I am saying, My Pillow is the best thing I have ever slept on, it is the best pillow I have ever owned--if the *** thing lasts 5 years then my purchase was a steal. It is truly a wonderful experience to lay my head on this soft miracle.
Go complain about something worthwhile.
