I slept in the UK’s ‘first’ king-size gamer bed – it’s packed with crazy features, including a 43-inch pop-up TV

DREAMS has released a new bed that you probably won’t sleep in much.

The retailer has launched its first gaming bed that comes loaded with all the gadgets you could want.

Quick charging points are built into the bed on both sides

And they claim it’s also the UK’s first king-size gamer bed.

But starting at a cool £1,799, is it game on or game over?

We took the drift gamer bed for a sleepy lap to find out.

First of all, two models are available, black faux leather or gray fabric.

I went with the gray king size design as I felt it would go better with my plain room, but I can see the appeal with the faux leather if you’re braver than me.

Magical pop-up TV

You have one remote control that does all the big stuff – flip open your TV at the end of the bed, turn on the LED lights, and turn on the Bluetooth speaker.

There’s something mesmerizing about watching a 43-inch UHD TV rise gracefully with lights shining like a superstar underneath.

While the TV is pretty snazzy under the lights, I quickly turn it off, I find it a bit too bright and distracting when trying to play and/or lounge around.

The LED lights under the bed frame itself and the headboard don’t bother me though – I just wish you could change the color to suit different moods.

It’s an LG TV, to be precise, and if bought separately it’s only around £300.

But television is just the beginning…

Gaming accessories galore

What are two of the top things gamers see swinging these days?

A controller and of course a headset.

Well, the drift bed has those covered.

Firstly, no more battery issues for your PS5 as there are USB-C chargers on either side of the bed.

So plug it in and keep going for hours with no issues.

Of course, when you’re not gaming, they’re also perfect for charging your iPhone or Android devices.

There is also an audio jack next to each USB-C port.

There is a handy little hook on the outside that you can fold down to also place your headset on it.

As for the console itself, Dreams built a rather nifty little tray under the bed that hides all the cables from view (which is ideal if you hate seeing cables like I do).

Behind the tray is a huge storage space that you can access by pulling a handle to lift the mattress.

There is a Bluetooth speaker at the foot of the bed, which takes over the sound from the television by default.

Be careful not to push down a load of cover though, as you will end up blocking the sound.

If you just want to relax and listen to music, use the remote control to switch the speaker to Bluetooth mode.

Sound quality is pretty decent, but it’s not a Bose or Sonos system.

As a tech journalist, I’m not a bed expert.

But what I can say is that I found the mattress chosen by Dreams incredibly comfortable – especially with the occasional back pain I get.

It was chosen for me by visiting a Dreams store and using a bit of technology called Sleepmatch, which determines the best mattress for you based on the pressure points and other factors it senses when you lie on it.

However, you have to pay extra for the mattress.

Conclusion

As if it wasn’t hard enough to get out of bed on a weekend, the Drift has given me a reason not to go at all, with so much entertainment literally at my fingertips – and my feet.

The very high price is a big question, but if gamer chairs are anything, serious gamers value comfort – especially considering how many hours they can last.

Crucially, this crowd is more willing to pay the price, especially those who want luxury.

There’s a model that also raises the back and feet of the mattress if you’re willing to spend more.

Above all, it’s nice to have so much practical technology that disappears tidily, especially for small rooms where space is at a premium.
