The Reverie is the proud winner of the Women’s Choice Award.
Their 3E adjustable base looks to carry on that award winning tradition. Although,
contender has now hopped into the ring.
Leggett & Platt have just released the Falcon adjustable base. It is
in the same price bracket as the 3E, comes in the same sizes and also has
multiple features. Can Reverie hold the crown or will they have to hand it over
to Leggett & Platt?
The obvious comparison would be to line up the features.
Right off the bat the price is close but Leggett & Platt are going to pull
this category. The Falcon queen size adjustable base is $799 while the 3E sits
The remote on the 3E is wired to the bed. This could be a convenience
because you will never lose it, but it also limits where you can put it, or who
can use it. The Falcon features a wireless remote control. The 3E has Head/Foot
rest control and a one touch flat button on the remote. The Falcon has the same
options but is missing the one touch flat button.
Leggett & Platt have an 800lb weight limit on the
Falcon, but the 3E can go up to 850lbs. The Falcon’s steel frame is 30lbs
lighter than most adjustable base frames and is made from compressed steel. The
3E is made of proprietary steel, but does not advertise a weight.
Both adjustable bases have high performance quiet motors and
both have hefty warranties backing each base. Leggett & Platt decided to
ditch the retention bar (but still include it) for a microhook system. Two
strips of velcro like material are on the base to secure the mattress in place.
The E3 still requires the use of a retention bar and it isn’t optional.
The comparisons of the two adjustable bed bases are very
close in a lot of features. Considering that Leggett and Platt sits at lower
cost, it seems that their more current convenience features may win out in this
