Receiving the bed, I put off setting it up until the next day thinking I didn't have the time. I laughed at that after the ten minutes it took to set up. Each side of the bed comes folded in half and the legs pivot out as you unfold it. The two halves are held together with bolts and wing nuts making it truly tool free.
The bed solid. Both my wife and I are big people and it only squeaks under the, er, most active of situations and then barely at all. My son took a flying leap onto it and it made neither a sound nor shifted in any way. The only negative would be that there is no way to attach a headboard without modification. I knew that when purchasing so I wouldn't take a star away or anything, but thought it should be pointed out.
I was really looking for something inexpensive for my son on a temporary basis, so when I came across this bedframe and all the wonderful reviews (over 250 of them), I decided to make the purchase. I didn't want to leave a review immediately after receiving it b/c I wanted to see what kind of issues it had, if any. It arrived in excellent condition, nothing bent or missing. I put it together in about 10 mins. It would have been less than that if I didn't have to position everything the way I wanted. It is good on space, but ugly. It just kinda remind me of a military bed for some reason. If your interested in dressing it up, you will need to purchase a 14inch drop bedskirt to cover up all those legs.
Ok. The bad news. The first few days of my son using this frame, he had no issues. He is 5'6 130lbs, so he's not that heavy. After the first full week, it began to squeak. We have now had the bed for two weeks, and it only appears to be getting louder. The noise is currently only on one side of the bed, but I expect over time for the problem to increase. I thought if I tightened up some bolts along the legs, I could stop the problem--negative. It appears that the screws are mounted on,so your just stuck dealing with the problem.
My suggestion to potential buyers, if you choose to purchase this frame, use the bed for a few weeks before leaving the review. This way people can get a better idea of what to "possibly" expect. I'm not saying that over 250 people weren't satisfied, but it is my opinion that they might be leaving reviews far too soon.

This frame is awful. I don't know what you other reviewers are talking about, it's unbelievably squeaky. I've had it for a few months and the squeaking has gotten worse and worse. Now I'm in a horrible situation because I can't keep the frame, it squeaks so loud that it wakes up my roommate. STEER CLEAR
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
How is the quality of the product? Shoddy
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? No
I waited until I had the product a while versus when I immediately received it. Over time, this frame becomes REALLY squeaky (and I haven't had it a full year). If my husband turns over, it wakes me up because it shakes and squeaks something horrible!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color as denoted
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is fair...best for only 1 sleeper.

The bed arrived very quickly. It folds up very small and is simple to put together in a matter of minutes. However, mine arrived missing 1 of 6 leg assemblies. I called, emailed and chatted Overstock.com staff and they were all brainless robots who repeatedly messed things up claiming it was damaged in shipping for example (like the assembly unhooked itself and magically moved through the cardboard box). I eventually received a new bed and was told to keep the defective one, which is nice. So basically, the bed when received in working condition is great, but Overstock.com employees need to stop reading their scripts and actually provide one on one customer service to help customers.

Needed support for traditional queen size mattress, could not get the box spring up narrow stairway. This works, went together quickly and easily. Good height for under bed storage. Most probably could have found similar one locally, but I find it easier to have large, heavy and bulky items delivered.
I matched this up with: Select Luxury Reversible Medium Firm 10-inch Queen-size Foam Mattress. Assembly was a breeze, just unfold two separate frames, and secure them together using the provided bolts and wingnuts. My only complaint is that the weld locations, that holds the thin bars to the main frame, sticks to the mattress, because they aren't rounded off. So im a little fearful of tearing up the mattress while changing the sheets or rotating it. Since this frame is not meant to be used with a box, I would've thought the manufacturer would've addressed this minor issue.
Can you use this Bed Frame with a queen size box spring and mattress or mattress only? I would like to use both.ssp2424 on Jul 22, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello ssp2424, this is recommended for mattress use only. You are able to put both a box spring and mattress on this though it will just make it higher. Thanks for shopping with us!overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 22, 2014
You can certainly use both but, depending on the size of the box and mattress, it might be quite high. Watch your measurements so you don't end up needing stairs to get into bed!riaintx on Jul 27, 2014
Both. These are heavy duty frames and holds the weight. Great Buy!mtmiracle on Aug 1, 2014

You will want something on the frame to keep your mattress from sinking through the platform, Heavy cardboard works, and you can put your bed skirt over it before putting your mattress down.decomaniac on Dec 10, 2013

The one I bought didn't have storage bins, but I did purchase an earlier/different version that did have them, and no, the ones I got are wire baskets that have no tops. But this frame does allow you to use storage bins with tops (like Rubbermaid or Tuffy tubs with lids) underneath, and that's what I've done. If you need more height to accommodate your particular tubs, get the "risers" that you can put under the legs to raise the frame up a bit (or make your own -- my hubby made some for me out of short 4x4 wood blocks).tikker on Nov 7, 2013

The board depends on how thick and hevy it is. I didn't need one with my memory foam mattress-amyjotoledo on Jul 13, 2013
I hated this bedframe! So cheap and LOUD! Very squeaky.sarahk500 on Jul 13, 2013
We used it with a memory foam mattress and it didn't squeak at all and we didn't need a bunkie board. I actually think it is designed specifically to use without a box spring or board so the experience may be compromised if you added it.mg9800 on Jul 24, 2013
I added 3/4 particle board to this as my bunkie board. It made the frame rock solid.philip60 on Aug 5, 2013

This bed has been very sturdy for us and the mattress doesn't move on it at all.blissfulinaz on Jul 11, 2013
I would be a bit careful. It's very sturdy and spreads out the weight well, but I've noticed one of the weld tacks has come loose in one spot. It may be because I turn it up on it's side to vacume under it every time I make the bed, but I thought I'd mention it.alice19 on Mar 17, 2013
I bought this a year and a half ago. My husband and I weigh about the same together. I am on Overstock now looking for a new bed. Bed squeaks and then the hard plastic pieces break.cgon on Sep 25, 2013
