I bought this bed for my son's first apartment. It is great - is lightweight, easy to put together, has good room underneath, and works well with his 8" memory foam mattress. But - DO NOT move it once it is in place.. The legs collapse - the middle and end legs fold down in one direction and the legs on the other end collapse in the other direction.
I purchased this in a queen size for my 128lb son. He has been sleeping on it since 11/30. I just received a smaller version of it today and when I went to move his bed, I discovered that the entire frame on one side is all bent. The mattress on top of it is now sagging where the frame bent and now I have to buy a whole new complete bed and frame set. This frame absolutely cannot be used without a foundation . Do not think it can be used as a platform bed! Not durable or for long - term use! Maybe good enough for an occasional overnight guest only. An adult of less than 130 lbs should have been able to sleep on this in the way it was advertised without the frame bending the way it did!
As basic as they come, which wouldn't bother me if it hadn't have broken within 2 months of using it. The legs in the middle, where the platform hinges, do not stay upright. The plastic piece where the platform rests on the legs is tiny and flimsy, and split on both sides after a month or two. This means that if I move the bed at all (i.e. for cleaning, changing sheets, sex), the middle legs start to fold up and the bed goes down with it. Sometimes it just starts to sink under the weight of two adults without moving at all. I have to take the mattress off the bed and fix it by hand once every two weeks at least - it's pretty difficult to do this in my small bedroom with a heavy mattress.

I bought this frame to keep my memory foam mattress off the floor. It does the job, so I'm pretty happy with it. I like that it is easy to take a part and store if necessary. What I am slightly annoyed with, is that there's no guard for the mattress so it can move if I just push the mattress slightly. It slides from the frame. I can't move the frame and the mattress together! Or, if I'm sitting on the bed with my back against the wall, if I scoot forward with my body, sometimes the mattress slides forward, too. Other than that, this is a good frame for the price or good for someone who moves around a lot.
The frame is very sturdy and easy to set up. It does make your bed much higher off the ground than standard frames but I like my bed high so it's better (it's now 29" from the floor). It was easy to put together, just align the screws and that's it, plus the fact that it's portable makes it easy to move from room to room or for an overall move to another location outside of the home. Gives you PLENTY of underbed storage space. Definitely a great bargain!
You truly get what you pay for. I recognized this factor and ordered this as a temporary solution until I move. This is a terrific idea / concept design and yet poorly constructed. For the price - even discounted - the build quality could be lots better. I believe that many consumers would prefer to buy American and listing the product's country of origin is - in my view - a step in the right direction for many consumers seeking to support American manufacturing.

Believe the positive reviews. I was worried after reading some of the negative feedback, but so far this frame has been awesome. Everything it's supposed to be. Seems durable, easy to set up, great for storage underneath. I'll update if anything goes wrong, but I've had the frame for a week now and it's great. No weird smell, as others have noted. My full mattress doesn't slide around on it. No need for box springs, but you could use them if you want. Stood on the bed the other day to hang something on the wall and felt very secure. Great product, well worth $99!

I have to say that after I read some of the negative reviews, I was not sure whether that I'd made a good purchase but, after using this frame for 2-3 weeks, I have to say it's great. It doesn't squeak at all. My mattress is pretty heavy, so I check the legs to make sure they're not buckling and so far they haven't. The plastic "Y" pieces that hold the middle legs haven't cracked or broken either. I purchased this frame for daily(nightly) use, not for guests; and so far it's been great. I will update in a few months.

If this is all you need in a bed frame it is simply perfect. Nothing fancy or over the top but it does the job. I do have bed risers and I had to purchase more of them since there are essentially 12 legs of the frame to rise. But once I had that all set up it has been a dream.
I wanted to get rid of my box spring and still be able to use my mid-century headboard, so I got this item, and splurged on the bracket set. It went together with little trouble. There are two sides that fold out, and then screw together with thumb screws, so no tools were required, though I grabbed a vice grips to really tack them together. The brackets went on without any trouble and matched up perfectly to the holes in my headboard, originally for a much shorter headboard. In addition to that, it arrived at my apartment three days ahead of schedule! The only thing I don't particularly love is the look, which is an easy fix, and I'll be getting a bed skirt for that as soon as I decide on a color.
Very practical and can take a lot of weight. I was looking for a simple frame that I could use with my foam mattress without a box spring. This frame does the job and is far less expensive than a box spring and is stronger and sturdier than a standard metal frame.Super easy to assemble too.
