What Buyers Didn't Like About the Silentnight Deep Sleep Pillows
If the percentage of 1 stars is low, I normally do not get that concerned. However when they are in double figures, that does make me pay attention. I therefore took a much closer look to find out why they would rate a product so low. Here is what I managed to find out.
A few buyers said they were simply too flat and too lumpy. Some also said they offered little or no support. People seemed to be disappointed in them as they expected better from a well known brand name.
Clearly these customers were not happy at the way these pillows seemed to be flat, and overall they thought they just got worse with time.
What Buyers Did Like About the Silentnight Deep Sleep Pillows
As with many products, at the other end of the scale, the majority of the buyers were relatively happy with their purchase. I think a lot of the reviews, good or bad, will come down to how much you have paid for these.
The recommended retail price (RRP) from the brand is £19.99. At that price, these would be expensive for what you actually get.
However many stores sell the pair from £7-10. Now at that price, they are certainly better value. They are never going to last that long though, so at the lower price point, at least you get something that is OK, without having to break your budget.

It is fair to say, that these are not classed as "high end" pillows. They are classed as a "medium" firmness.
Our Verdict on the Silentnight Deep Sleep Pillows
With an RRP of £19.99, if you can find these pillows for around half that price, then we think that is very good value for money. Your average pillow is good for about 2-4 years of normal use, and after that it is pretty much useless.
Overall the buyer ratings on these are good, and they are the best selling standard pillows on Amazon UK. Many people buy these for the home, but also for guest bedrooms and for holiday homes and caravans.
