Great bed - tough to put together and very hard to move once it is put together. You have to get the angles exactly perfect again for the drawers to fit if you try to move it. Otherwise i'm pleased with it so far - only had it about a month.
I bought this because of the storage and it did not disappoint. The drawers are spacious and sturdy enough. I used some extra nails to secure it to the frame better. I can see how the bottom can bow if one puts too many heavy things in there or if it is not secured into the frame properly. I have seasonal items stored between the drawers on either side under the bed because it is so spacious. I have a tempurpedic mattress and it supports that just fine. I've had to take it apart twice because of moves and it survived without any problems. The only downside is that it is a little wobbly (head to toe, not side to side) because of the length of the supports used on the side of the bed. It was to be expected given the heft and pricing point.
Don't buy unless you plan on doing nothing but sleeping as stiff as a board. Bed does not tolerate movement at all. We have had this bed less than three months and it is already falling apart to the point where we will be throwing it out because it would cost more than it is worth to reinforce it.
One of the inner gables was warped so when the bed was put together the upper stabilizer pushed out and the drawers would not fit. Took almost 3 days to put it together only to find out that the drawers will not fit flush to the stabilizer. The gables are made of pressed board so that if you put in the screw once you better not have to take it out or the pressed board crumbles.Very poor materials.
We purchased this bed just about 3 years ago and it has now cracked irreparably at the footboard and is nearing collapse. I know cheap furniture doesn't last forever but COME ON. An almost $600 piece should last longer than 3 years. It didn't fit together all that nicely when we got it, but I thought no big deal, it's not going to be perfect for that price. It hasn't seen anything but normal wear and tear and the particle board is just collapsing at this point. Run run run in the other direction, do not buy!!!
I ordered this to be sent ahead where we were moving so we would have a bed when we got to our new house. Thankfully our son was there to put it all together and, as he said "the 1,250 drawers!" Maybe an exaggeration on his part, but our room is very small so having the drawers eliminates the need for any other furniture in the room. Only issue is it is REALLY HIGH off the floor. But our dog can jump up there. Thank goodness! But I was a little worried about us two senior citizens. I ended up putting a little one foot high step stool by my side just so I don't have to stretch too much. But we do love it and have a gel mattress on it and it sleeps great. We had concerns going with a queen after 30 years of a king, but working out okay. Good, solid bed. Highly recommend. If hight worries you, just go with the one with fewer drawers.
I was looking for a bed for good storage for a smaller room. And did ton of research on beds and most reviews said the bed was amazing and it just took forever to put together.. so I bought it it was the worst decision I have ever ever ever made.. the bed did take forever and some of the tracks were backwards. Then some weren't built right and then bed isn't square at all so none of the drawers close fully. They fall off the tracks every time I open a draw which I highly annoying.. the spacers for the bed to rest on some didn't fit so I had to go by some to fit they move around like crazy so one half of my bed falls in all the time and all of the platform boards are boxed like crazy.. I'm writing this to try to stop anyone from buying this product... WORST BED EVER!!!
We bought the bed to help with our storage issue and it looked really nice, however, as we were putting it together we realized that it wasn't the best bed to get. I was hoping to have better quality since I paid over $XXX for it but it was all cheap parts. As my husband put the screws in they slid right in with ease, however as he tightened them they broke the corners of the bed and the screws were just resting there instead of being secure. After the LONG process of putting this together, we finally got to put the mattress on the bed and use it. As we got in and out of bed, it would shake really bad and the drawers would pop out of place. It would wake us up constantly in the middle of the night if one of us turned in our sleep. We put up with it for a couple months before realizing that this was a waste and took it down and just put our mattress on the floor. While we took it down, there were 4 screws on the floor that fell out from random places on the bed.
This bed looked good in the pictures, however I had a hard time putting this together. You will have to be handy with tools in order to put this bed together. It took me two days just to get the frame together. Also parts were missing. I called the number suggested in the pkg instead of returning it. The customer services said it would take 7 - 10 business days before I get the parts, This was two weeks ago and I still don't have the parts to finish the bed and I have been sleeping on the floor. I called the customer service several times and got a recording. Do you self a favor and don't order this bed. It is not worth the hassle.

My husband and I bought this to provide us with some extra storage for our apartment. The drawers work great and allows us to store a lot of our things since our new apartment has limited closet space. The only downside for us is that there is no headboard at all so I'm constantly retrieving my pillows since our bed is against a window and not a flat wall. It's also probably good to mention that this bed is very tall and would probably work best with a low profile mattress. We used our regular mattress, and I'm 5' 4" and kind of have to hop to get up in it.

packaging not sturdy enough for a UPS shipment. Shipment delivered missing box #1. Box #2 opened during shipment and was retaped. parts inside had corners dinged. Box #1 arrived later the next day, I found that it had been "rewrapped'' at a UPS warehouse. Parts inside had corners dinged. I used a sis as I didn't want the aggravation of repacking for return.

This piece looks nice and has saved a bunch of space in the bedroom. It replaced two dressers in our room.

This bed is ok - as far as the price you can't find a lower price for a storage bed that has 12 drawers. That being said, be prepared to spend a whole day (at least) putting this together. I put this together myself and it took about 10 hours over 3 days. Also make sure you assemble it where it will be permananently - you can't move it once its put together. If you don't have the time to invest I would recommend getting one from the local furniture store put together. Most pieces fit and assembled according to the instructions. However, beware of the side rails - None of the holes for the cam nuts were not drilled deep enough so the screws that hold the head board and foot board to the side rails would not go in. This was an exercise in frustration since once you get the cam nuts in, you can't pull them back out. As such I wasted at least an hour figuring this out and had to go to the hardware store to get some thinner screws to go through headboard/footboard holes. Also the drawers on the last third don't slide effortlessly but I don't expect this from furniture you have to self-assemble anyway. Once put together the bed is good though and I am satisfied with the assembled producti.

This bed ships in 4 very heavy boxes. If you have 2 people, and follow the directions, putting it together isn't very difficult. It took 2 of us a little under 3 hours. You will want to put it together in the exact place you want it to be permanently, because it's quite heavy. Once the drawers are filled, it's extremely heavy. Make sure you have it in place BEFORE you put the drawers in. And also, make sure you have the bed squared off exactly, otherwise the drawers don't fit correctly. I really like this bed, it's exactly what I wanted. Once the mattress is in place, it is quite high, higher than I expected, but with 2 rows of drawers, of course it's going to be a tall bed. Having the storage is perfect for a smaller room. The quality is what you would expect from a $500 put-it-together-yourself piece of furniture, it's not top of the line, but it's not shoddy either. I do recommend this bed if you need efficient storage. But it's worth noting that if you ever want to move and take this bed with you, it will be quite difficult. I know I'll need to completely dismantle it to get it out the door.

The assembly instructions indicated this was an 80 minute job... maybe if a team is doing the assembly, or if you have access to a power screwdriver. For one person, is is more like an 8-hour job, cranking that screwdriver by hand. Overall, it is a good product & I am happy with it.
