Purple Ascent Adjustable Base – Construction:
When it comes to purchasing an adjustable base, you want to ensure that it is sturdy and built well. In order to shift the weight of a mattress and those laying in it, it takes a lot of strength and power to do this with ease. This is something that the Ascent Adjustable Base handles rather well. It is built with a steel frame, allowing it to have a weight capacity of 750lbs. It has 9″ tall wooden legs that give them bed a nice medium height, which works well with most decorative bed frames.
The Ascent Adjustable Base from Purple features a purple fabric wrap on the base in order to keep your mattress from potentially snagging on the frame. Instead your mattress can comfortably glide into each position friction free. All while staying in place due to the handy steel foot brace at the bottom of the frame.
Overall, we like the construction of the Ascent Adjustable Base. It is slim which allows it to fit comfortably in most decorative frames if you choose to use one. You can even choose to purchase the add on headboard attachments if you prefer to use a headboard only. Only potential drawback we can imagine is the leg height not being adjustable. Other than that, this is a solid construction that will serve you well.
Purple Ascent Adjustable Frame – Ease of Use:
Overall the Purple Ascent is about as easy to use as any other adjustable base, including the Purple Powerbase. However, there is one main difference, which is that the Purple Ascent Adjustable Base can be controlled through an app. Although this is a slightly different app as the Ascent is actually manufactured by a different company than the Purple Powerbase. Depending on which App you prefer, this could change how you view the ease of use for this adjustable bed frame.
However, we found the wireless remote that comes with the Ascent Adjustable Base to be rather simple and easy to use. It is intuitive and rather straight forward to work. We particularly enjoy how simple it is to adjust to your favorite position after setting your presets. This allows you to very easily get to your favorite position at the press of a button.
Purple Adjustable Base – Extra Features:
An adjustable base is all about adding extra comfort and convenience to the bedroom. Which is no wonder why many of them come with extra features. The Purple Ascent Adjustable Base comes with a convenient, easy to use wireless remote control. On this you have 3 preset buttons. The first is zero-gravity which is one of the most popular positions used by adjustable base owners. The next two are preprogrammed, however they are also programmable. Which means that you can change them to your ideal settings that you want to get to easily. This way when you are ready to change your position in bed it is as simple as pressing a button once. No more hunting for that perfect position each night.
The Ascent Adjustable base also comes with USB charging ports. This allows you to conveniently use and charge any of your devices from the comfort of your bed. This is very helpful as the adjustable base does need to use a plug in the wall.
Purple Ascent Base – Value:
Adjustable bases can get rather expensive. These are large machine that come with many unique features to turn your bed into something much more. However, when compared to many other adjustable bed frames out there.
The Purple Ascent Adjustable Base is rather reasonably priced. Which is great news for anyone who wants to skip the extra features like massage etc. to get a great adjustable base at a rather reasonable price for what you are getting.
- Twin XL: $899
- Queen: $999
- King: $1,399

Trial Period & Warranty:
For many brands adjustable bases have no trial periods. That is not the case with the Ascent Adjustable Base, which gives you a 100-night trial period to test out your new adjustable base to see if it is the right fit for you. Which is great news for anyone who is on the fence on biting the bullet and making their purchase.
You also get a 10-year limited warranty on your adjustable base as well. Which is great to have on a machine as large as the adjustable base is. You want to make sure that you are covered just in case. However, with this base being constructed as well as it is, it is unlikely that you will need to use it. However, the peace of mind you get by having it with purchase is fantastic.
