Purchased the A8 about a month ago. When making the purchase I spoke directly to Personal Comfort telling them we like our bed fairly soft and definitely with a plush top.
They recommended the A8, sounded good and I purchased it. Since then we have tried many different pressure settings, from 9 on up to the mid 30's. 30 is way too firm for us and 9 is sinking into the floor. We found 13 to 15 to be about right so the bed top doesn't sink well below the edges.
But the top surface still fells rather hard causing us to wake up and have to turn or roll over frequently. Call Personal Comfort back to ask for recommendations. They suggested to remove the top cover and sleep on the gel infused foam. If you've seen that foam I bet you too would not count on it staying in one piece without falling apart.
And, without the top I'm sure the sides would start falling out. This has to be a really bad idea. Next recommendation: we could manufacture you a special bed like the A10 or something else. Sounds like nothing but an upsell (even though I was ready to by the A10 in the first place but told the A8 was probably more plush).
So now I have to wait the full 45 days to return it - apparently there is nothing else Personal Comfort can do to help other than to buy the bed back. Beware.
