We are fairlt happy with this futon,but,it was missing 4 screws and some of the screws had rough finishes.It was kinda of a pain to put together. The frame seems sturdy. The mattress is firm. The cover on this mattress had little pinhole holes wear the threading is tufted. I am woried the holes will get bigger with use and decided to order a futon cover from Overstock.The cover is nice,but a little small around the mattress. Overall a decent buy, being the shipping is only a few dollars!! I will post an updated review after guests sleep on it and give me their verdicts :)
I needed a futon for my 4 year old's play room, so it didn't have be really nice. just a couch for tv and a bed for sleepovers. So a "transformer bed," as they call it, is perfect. Here's a few things i've discovered with it:
-It shipped very fast, and i am very pleased with how the order was handled.
-It DOESN'T come with a futon cover, so i ordered a cover and foam mattress topper.
-Assembly was a pain and took a couple hours to do by myself. i'd recommend having a friend help for positioning the large pieces.
-the mattress really is 8" but very stiff (normal for a futon). its also a little shorter than a full by 5-6 inches, but good enough for a toddlers playroom.
-It looks great
20 minutes after assembly, my 4 year old jumped on it and ripped the support stud right out of the left wooden end! two screws hold the bar on to the end and it pulled them right through the wood, breaking it. Now, the right wooden arm seems sturdy, and i believe that the left wooden arm just had the screw holes positioned on a faulty, rotten part of the wood. However i would HIGHLY recommend using the extra washers supplied on those screws even though the instructions say not to. this removes the possibility of using the wooden end plugs to cover the screws on the wood as they will be protruding on the outside, but at least it won't break like mine did.
I was able to put the washers on afterwards to cover the broken/stripped screw holes so its nice and strong now. "Whew!" i was worried...
Overall review: its cheap on price, the frame is cheap on quality, but it serves my needs perfectly.
Beware! We purchased this futon to go in our guest room for when family comes and stays. When my wife's mother went to bed, she laid down on the futon and it flipped over and dumped her in the floor. We are talking about an average size adult here. Not over weight at all. So if you are buying this for a bed for guest to sleep on, it will need extra support to keep people from ending up on the floor in the middle of the night.
Also, the cushion will not stay on when it is in the couch position. The brackets that are supposed to keep cushion in place are too short and the cushion slides right off. I've had to modify this as well to make it work.
Plus, like some have mentioned, the assembling of the futon is challenging. Not everything lines up as it should, so the assembly takes a long time even when a person knows what they are doing.
For $### we expected a good quality futon but there are many flaws to it so beware if you intend to buy it.
I've purchased hundreds of items from Overstock through the years and this is the first truly negative review I've posted. After much research, I purchased this for my son's dorm room because it had a wooden frame (which I thought would be sturdy enough to handle young adults). Didn't work out that way...the frame bent and legs broke. Currently, we have not resolved the issue with the mfg company and Overstock has stepped in to help. Hopefully, I'll be able to report that they took care of us. But, it's been quite disappointing for my son having to sleep on a broken piece of (brand new) furniture.

I ordered this futon for my guest room as an extra bed for an upcoming guest. I read the reviews and thought the odds were on my side that I would get one that had no problems and was a breeze to build...WRONG! I ended up hiring a handyman to come put it together for an additional $100! He had to go to the hardware store to purchase additional hardware for the following reasons: One side of the frame did not have the holes drilled; this meant that the threading inserts weren't in either...additional cost. He ended up having to buy bolts to go all the way through the frame to fasten the brackets (which were mislabeled). What he thought would take an hour took three - and he's put these together before! Absolutely furious and will be sure to discourage a friend that was waiting to see how mine turned out to buy hers.

For the price, this futon is a good. Over the year, it is not definitely as sturdy as I thought it should be at this time. The springs and locking devices are failing, but it still looks good it my guest room. It's been 3 years.
