Very disappointed with the quality. After only 6 months the mattress is getting flat and starting to slide down when in couch position. Because of the difficulty of opening and closing one of the metal legs has broke. Would not recommend if you plan on using for much more than a guest bed or porch couch, and even then don't know how long that will last.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? fine
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. very difficult to open and close and already have a broken leg on the metal frame.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? same
We had limited space for this Futon and chose this because of the width. Pulling the Futon out is easy but putting it back in the first dozen times was a little bit of struggle. The Mattress has little springs in it and all my guests absolutely loved it! We don't use it on a regular basis, only for our guest bedroom/office room. this Futon is wicked comfortable and I highly recommend this product for anyone looking for an affordable quality Futon. Hope this was Helpful. Much love, PuppyFarts

The futon set was pretty much what I expected from the description on the website. The instructions for assembly are pretty easy to follow (although I am an engineer). I think we put the entire futon set together in about 1.5 hours. The materials are good in my opinion for the price, but don't expect solid wood. The mattress is very comfortable, and guests that have slept on the futon bed also agree. To make the futon into a bed takes a little work and might require two people until you get the hang of how the frame unfolds. My wife and I have had this futon set for a little over one month now and it works perfectly for us as couch/extra bed in our study. I do have one complaint. There is a "C" shaped clip that is supposed to help hold the middle of the two frame halves together. I was unable to use this clip as one of the holes it is supposed to fit into on one of the frame halves was partially blocked by a poor welding job (i.e. extra slag in the hole). The "C" clip is not essential to the bed functionality, so I am not too concerned. It is mainly just annoying that it doesn't work. I just want future buyers to be aware that things like this happen on mass produced items, like this futon set.

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description was accurate enough to know what you were purchasing.
We purchased this futon and it came very quickly. The assembly went fairly smoothly, it has a number of parts, and the instructions were good. The futon feels very stable and solid and the mattress is comfortable. It did not rock or tilt when moving around on it when it was laid flat. We chose the futon for additional sleeping area for a small bedroom that also serves other purposes. It fits our needs and pocketbook. My only complaint is that the product was listed as armless and shown with no protrusion of an arm above the mattress when laying flat. The wood "arm" assembly we received, that the springs fit into, are different than shown, so that if two persons use it, one will have a portion of the wooden arm at both their head and foot. Maybe not a problem, but not what I had expected from the photos shown. Overall, we are happy with the product.
Very comfortable for sitting and sleeping. I got the 10 in mattress. Easy to put up and down. Assembly went fairly well but did need help getting the bracket in the connects the front to the back. The two pins that hold that bracket in place were very difficult to get in and in the end I was unable to get one through the hole completely. But overall I am happy with futon. It looks nice in my den and will be great for the occasional guest.
This futon fit all the specifics given & more...a very nice piece of furniture as well as a comfortable sleeper.
