Gel foam mattresses? Any experiences/info/opinions?

I've read a lot of AskMeFi questions and answers about latex and memory foam mattresses, but now that I've started looking seriously online for latex options, I'm seeing a lot of info about gel foam. I'm wondering if anyone here has experience with them, or any info about whether they're as good as the stores and manufacturers claim. I realize they probably haven't been around long enough for anyone to know how well they hold up after any time, so maybe that alone is enough reason to rule them out, as they're pretty pricey right now.
All I'm looking for is a mattress that doesn't get hot, doesn't transmit motion, and is reasonably comfortable to sleep on. Suggestions for other kinds are also welcome.
