Lucid L600 Adjustable Bed Review
Head section – 68 degrees and Feet section – 35 degrees
The difference between Lucid L600 and L300 is really interesting.
- While the head section tilting in L600 has been increased all the way up to 68 degree from 60 degrees seen in L300
- But the feet section tilting has been decreased to 35 degrees from 45 degrees
The lift motor capacity in Lucid L600 is 750 lbs which is again the same as in L300. The motors performance is both seamless and whisper-quiet.
Lucid L600 Remote Control
Lucid L600 offers wireless remote with as many as 19 functions offering wide range of options.
Well, Lucid didn’t miss out even on a single preset function. It is offering all 4 preset positions in Lucid L600 (Zero-gravity, Anti-snore, TV and Flat) on remote control. They are again beautifully embedded in the middle of the remote for easy blind-fold like access.
Lucid L600 Vs L300: L300 offers only 1 preset position whereas L600 is offering all 4 positions.
Memory programmable positions
Lucid is again offering 2 memory savable positions in L600, in a way exceeding everyone’s expectations. Whereas, L300 offers only 1 programmable position.
What I liked the most about Lucid is the way they are moving ahead with their design.
Initially, when they first launched L300 model, they included all mandatory features but not massage functionality. And in L100 model they ensured that it was just the basic version.
- Moreover, what they offered was picture perfect and absolutely flawless
- This, perhaps, is one of the main reasons why Lucid L300 and L100 sold in huge numbers
And now in Lucid L600 model they have added much important massage functionality. Now it has all the features of a perfect mid-range adjustable bed.
Massage mode & intensity
The powerful yet ultra-quiet massage motors provide 3 different types of massage modes and 3 different intensity levels (low, medium and high).
Lucid L600 comes with 3 massage timers as well – 10 mins, 20 mins and 30 mins.
Simply select the massage mode, set the intensity level plus timer and the massage motors will automatically turn-off on reaching the set time.
Other Important Features
Perhaps, L600 is the only adjustable bed to offer child lock button on its remote. This, in fact, is a must have feature so as to prevent children from operating the bed.
USB ports are mandatory these days and Lucid L600 comes with 2 ports on each side, very much similar to L300 model.
Under-the-bed lighting and flashlight
Well, basic adjustable beds offer only flashlight while new generation mid-range adjustable beds come with under-the-bed lighting. And only high-end beds provide both of these.
And Lucid L600 too offers both under-the-bed lighting and flashlight.
Height adjustability and number of legs
Well, Lucid L600 comes with fixed 12 inches legs and the frame is relatively sturdy with 6 legs design. Basic adjustable beds with no massage feature can sustain weight on 4 legs.
However, beds that offer massage functionality in addition to lifting head and feet section must have 2 additional legs in the middle. This ensures both sturdiness as well as longevity to the frame.
Mattress retainer bar
L600 comes with traditional mattress retainer bar at the feet level.
Its simply exceptional on part of Lucid for offering Bluetooth based Apple iOS mobile app for L600. There is apparently no other adjustable bed in this price range to include mobile app in addition to remote control.
Mobile apps are useful in case you happen to misplace your remote control.
Lucid L600 comes with 10-Year warranty.
Conclusion – Lucid 600 Review
Lucid has proven its mettle from the reviews and ratings it received for its L300 model. And now it has enhanced the same with a major feature addition, massage functionality offering 3 massage modes, 3 intensity levels and 3 massage timers.
In addition to massage, it has also included a host of features and has massive 19 functions embedded on its remote. It offers,
- All 4 preset positions – FLAT, anti-snore, zero-gravity and TV/lounge
- 2 memory programmable positins
- Child lock

Lucid L300 Adjustable Bed Review
Lucid, renowned brand name in mattresses segment, has now venture into adjustable beds as well. Just like it’s mattresses, even its adjustable bed Lucid L300 is super affordable and the fastest plus highest selling adjustable bed in the market today.
Although it doesn’t include high-end features of a premium adjustable bed, but at this price it has pretty much every requisite basic feature. You will be surprised to know that the price of this bed is less than that of a 14 inch premium mattress. That’s what is Lucid is famous for, offering best features at low prices.
However, if you are looking for massage feature as well then this is not the bed for you as it is the only feature that is not included with this bed. If you are ready to compromise on massage functionality and only focus on health related benefits then there is no other bed at this price. Lucid is the only best available option.
But if you want massage functionality as well and ready to spend a bit more then iDealBed or Ghostbed adjustable beds are the best options.
Head and Feet Tilting
60 degrees of head section adjustment and 45 degrees of foot section adjustment means that Lucid adjustable bed offers pretty much all types of positions from watching TV, working on laptop and zero gravity.
Apart from FLAT position, the remaining ones are not included as preset positions, you have to do them manually. But the remote does offer one memory savable positions, which means you can tune to your favourite angle and save it on your remote.

Memory Savable / Programmable Positions

You can simply save your favourite position (as M1) and tune into the same as and when needed by simply pressing the same M1 button on the wireless remote control and the bed automatically lifts both the head and foot sections to your favourite angles.
Offering total of 4 USB ports is in fact a feature on par with high end adjustable beds like Leggett & Platt’s Prodigy 2.0 and Reverie 8Q.
While most adjustable beds in low end category do not offer even a single USB port in first place, Lucid L300 offering 4 USB ports, 2 on each side of the bed is perhaps a definite unique selling point that places Lucid far ahead of other brands and makes it a preferred choice in low end segment.
Lucid being the latest brand to venture into adjustable beds, perhaps, has surely scored above its contemporaries by offering USB 4 ports.

The height of Lucid bed is fixed at 15 inches from the ground. It does not offer additional lengths for height adjustability which otherwise is mostly a feature made available only by high-end adjustable beds.
In case of adjustable beds, anything between 13 inches and 15 inches from the ground is considered as an ideal height for both short as well as tall people.
This space can also be effectively utilized for storage purpose. Additionally, as Lucid L300 comes with a wireless remote, you need not worry about wires tangling with your belongings stored under the bed.
Mattress Retention System
Like all basic adjustable beds, Lucid also offers retention bars at foot level. These retainers hold the mattress perfectly in its place avoiding the mattress from slipping downwards or sideways while performing both head and foot adjustments.
Lucid L300 - Motor Capacity
The motor is ultra quiet and does not produce any annoying noise. It has exceptional lift capacity of 750 lbs which is the highest and on par with high-end adjustable beds.
Even while lifting the head and foot sections, the lift pistons are extremely smooth, slow & sturdy and help you achieve your favorite position to a very precise level of accuracy.
This is the very area where Lucid L300 leaves behind all other adjustable beds in the market. It is relatively simple, easy and less time consuming to assemble the entire frame together. Assembly takes less than 5 minutes.
Open the frame upside down and you will quickly notice that the motor and the lift pistons come readily attached.
All you have got to do is just fix the legs in their respective places.

Final Say - Lucid L300 Review
Lucid, which was primarily into mattress industry, is a new player in adjustable beds segment.
However, Lucid has taken tremendous advantage by analyzing wide range of basic adjustable beds.
The company has embedded several advanced features into its basic model thus leaving behind all other low-end adjustable beds that were in the market for a long time now.
For example, almost all basic adjustable beds come with only wired remote control. But Lucid has come up with wireless remote control.
While no other low-end adjustable bed offers memory savable position. Lucid L300 offers 1 memory savable position. Similarly, other basic adjustable beds do not offer even a single USB port. This is the where, Lucid has left behind its contemporaries by offering total 4 USB ports.
The power backup feature for the bed to get back to flat position in case of a power failure is an advanced feature offered by only high-end adjustable beds. But Lucid has provided two 9-volt battery slots in its power supply box that help the mattress to return to flat position in case of a power outage.
Keeping in mind all the above advanced features embedded in a basic adjustable bed has what made Lucid L300 adjustable bed to catch up with all other leading sellers in a very short span of time.
It’s price is its unique selling point.
