For the price, you can't beat it. ASSEMBLY: People complained that the futon was difficult to put together, and yeah, it wasn't especially easy, but it was no harder than any other futon I've put together before. The biggest pain was that the unthreaded screw holes are significantly larger than the threaded screw holes, which means you need to be careful to get everything to line up right. With a little finagling, a rubber mallet, and some vice grips, I was able to put it together by myself in about 2 hours. The springs that people complained were difficult to put on the hinge came already assembled on mine. IN USE: I couldn't ask for a better metal futon frame. My brother used to have a metal futon frame, which had large bars that were far apart, and you could always feel them individually through the frame. This one has many small metal bars, which mean that the weight gets distributed evenly. It can be a little tough to raise/lower the back, but I've never seen a futon that didn't have that issue, and as they go, this one is on the easier side of difficult. CONSTRUCTION: Some of the joints created by the small pieces are not especially sturdy. In particular, the joints on the crossbeams (two bars connected end to end) have a bit too much give in them. Other than that, though, the hinge and spring are very sturdy and seem to be well-made. I don't have to worry about it folding up/down accidentally. The endpieces look nice and seem to be sturdy as well.
I read all the reviews before I ordered it, and read it again before assembly. So, I was expecting that it would take quite a while to assemble it. It took 2 1/2 hours for me (female) with one screw driver that I had, and it was not as bad as expected. A power screw driver may help, but it can be done without it. I didn't use the tool which came with it.
This is what I did.
1. Sorted all the screws, washers, etc. I only used Hx20, Fx4, Sx6, Rx8, Tx4, Gx8, Nx8, Ix8 for bolts, washers, lock washers, and nuts by following the instructions. There will be a lot of leftovers.
2. Read all the instructions before assembly. Since the images don't help much, you need a bit of common sense. Once you get the overall picture of how it works, it shouldn't be a problem. I spent 20 min. to understand what needed to be done, and how it works especially the hinges.
3. Went through each step carefully. I was confused with the Left and Right labels on the arms. Left means when you stand in front of the futon, so when you sit, it will be on your right. I positioned the arms backwards first, but I figured it out since it didn't look right. So, before putting any bolts into the holes, make sure that it looks right.
As other reviewers mentioned, some of the holes didn't line up properly. However, if you move around the parts before tightening those bolts, I didn't have much problem. No extra tool was necessary for this, either.
Overall, this is a good product. Shipping was fast, and nothing was broken or missing. The bag for nuts and bolts had holes, and they were all over the box when I opened it, but all the pieces seemed to be there. The frame is very solid, and I am happy with this product overall. The assembly can be done by a single person.

Actually my daughter (thank you Diane) did most of the work putting this frame together. She first watched a video of a guy doing this step by step with a few steps missing (you never see him installing the arm spring) and the written directions are terrible so the video really helps. It also doesn't show the guy dropping the nuts and bolts like my daughter did several times. After completing this I was slightly worried as there were quite a few nuts and bolts left over but she assured me that it was done correctly. The extra parts were if I had puchased a complete wooden frame instead of the metal one. It is actually very solid and strong. No trouble with opening or closing the bed. Another great product and purchase.
I have only had the futon for about 3 weeks, but am satisfied with it. (The true test will be after 6 months and others have had a chance to sleep on it.) It is comfortable and looks nice. (Yes, it is only a futon --but all furniture should look nice.) I am glad I bought the 8" cushion--it is fine for me. Anything smaller than 8" would not be comfortable for long and would lose its shape. However, if I had a number of people on it I would probably buy a 10" thinking that it will last better/keep its shape longer. I also bought a cover. From prior experience, a cover is an excellent way of keeping you futon clean--especially if you have animals. Putting the futon together: Just pop in a movie/turn on the radio and put it together in a couple of (2-4) hours if working by yourself. The only BIG problem is the diagram on the paper for the metal hinge is not clear at all. The instructions are okay. The diagram is a bad copy. One cannot tell which direction to put the hinge; specifically, it is unclear which side of the hinge runs along the frame.--One must think through that process carefully before continuing. The only other part that took a little while was fitting the two pieces of the metal frame together. (I ended up banging them on the floor to make the tight fit work.) Overall, I am pleased with the futon.
The frame took a long time to put together, especially since the instructions were not clear. One of the pieces was not labeled like it was supposed to be, which made it more difficult than it could have been. Besides the assembly difficulties, the frame looks very nice and is easy to lay down and put back up. I'm glad I made the purchase.
I'm not a big futon fan but needed something to act as a couch and a place to sleep when guests are over. This was a pain to put together, was a pain to fold up to a couch, the futon mattress never really was great as a couch, and kept sliding off the frame. As a bed, it was fine. As a couch, I did not like it at all, and it was a pain to transition. I'm still not a futon fan.
The finished product is very nice. I read the review before purchasing and knew to expect difficulty putting it together. I had a friend who is very good at reading instructions in charge of the assembly. I mentioned that there's a Utube video to help. He did need the video. It still took him almost 3 hours to put together. There were many unused parts which helped in the confusion. The hassle of construction is almost worth the deal on the price.
We needed an extra sleeping area for our grandaughter, when she would spend the night. We didn't want a bed in the extra bedroom because we use the room for other things. This frame fit perfectly. It is easy to assemble, sturdy, and well made. The side arms are beautiful wood, and the color is just what we wanted.It is easy to adjust into the sleeping bed. The sleeping area is large and comfortable.
Once it's all said and done, the finished product is amazing. However, putting it together was the most traumatic furniture building experience. It didn't help that my dad, who was the "muscle" of this building project, was drunk as a skunk.
Everything that we needed was in the box, and we even received a bunch of extra pieces that I have no idea what they are for. The frame is solid once it is put together. The black finish is very pretty, but it is easily scratched, so definitely have a blanket down on wood floors when putting it together, I'm sure the same goes for the other finishes. There are videos on YouTube that are an absolute must when you are in the final stages of construction, as there are some important instructions in the video that are missing from the manual that comes with the frame.
I purchased the full size frame, and in couch form it can fit up to 3-4 adults comfortably. As a bed, it can fit two adults perfectly, or if you are OK with some elbows to the face, two adults and a kid.
Note: It can be hard to switch between couch and bed positions, so it might handy to grease the hinges before putting your mattress on. We did not do this before putting the mattress on, and it's a full body work out to switch between the two.
