The GhostBed and Reverie 4M are similar in appearance with a grey fabric wrapped base atop a metal frame. Both companies ship their bases ready to assemble.
Both bases assemble easily. GhostBed does not require any tools and the Reverie comes with an allen wrench to aid assembly. Two people should lift the heavy bases for safety reasons, but only one person is needed for assembly. GhostBed makes assembly easy with linking bolts that simply turn down and slide into brackets to connect sections.
GhostBed and Reverie both require feet to be screwed into place. There are six legs on the GhostBed and four for the Reverie. The GhostBed feet are a fixed at a 12-inch height and there are three height choices for the Reverie feet. The single retainer bar for the GhostBed simply is slid into place whereas Reverie requires a bit of elbow grease to install its corner retainer bars..
To assist in keeping the mattress from slipping as the base moves, both manufacturers offer anti-slip technology. The GhostBed adjustable base has a full anti-skid decking to hold any mattress in place. Reverie uses a similar technology for mattress retention called ProGrip.
A lot of weight can be handled by both company’s bases with GhostBed being able to take on a 750-pound lift capacity and Reverie holding a smidgen more at 850-pounds. Both the GhostBed and Reverie bases are built from steel.
The wonderful feature of under bed lighting can only be found on the GhostBed base. GhostBed offers built in USB ports on each side of their base. Reverie makes no mention of offering USB ports.
Backlit wireless remotes come with both the GhostBed and Reverie and both allow for remote to be synced along with beds for a split King. With its three preset options plus programable memory options along with massage and a built-in flashlight, the GhostBed remote wins over the Reverie remote with less preset options and no flashlight.
Both offer emergency battery backup to position bed back to flat option in case of power option. GhostBed uses a common 110 volts’ plug compared to Reverie’s 120-volt input.
Comfort is key when seeking to purchase the best in a memory foam mattress as well as the base it is placed upon. GhostBed has conducted its research for creating its remote combining the comfort of massage along with preset and programable options. Along with massage, Reverie has two programable options but lacks in presets compared to GhostBed.
GhostBed remote has 18 functions compared to the 16 on the Reverie remote. In addition to preset TV, zero-gravity, and lounge positions, the GhostBed remote allows for one to custom program two memory positions. Add to that GhostBed’s 15 modes of massage that work with recessed soothing massage units inside adjustable base. The GhostBed remote has a built-in flashlight feature that the Reverie remote lacks.
The Reverie does offer a zero-gravity position plus an anti-snore position. Those without snoring problems will long for the TV and lounge presets that the GhostBed remote has and Reverie does not. Reverie offers several massage options on its remote settings.
Reverie does offer an add-on Bluetooth Mobile Module option, but when reading the app reviews one will certainly not want to pay more to connect their smartphone when they already have a remote.
