So I read all of the comments before I bought this and could not be more pleased. It is a high quality, solid wood product at an extremely inexpensive price for what it is. If you want to go out and pay $2,500 for a bed frame, please do so and don't complain about this one. It is solid wood (soft to medium hardness) made in Indonesia. It is not laminate, not stained, but treated with some sort of coloring process. It looks great but you can scratch or dent it if not careful. I scratched/dented a very small piece while assembling and covered up with a marker. Impossible to see. The only tricky part of assembly is getting all of the slats onto the frame before tightening everything up since they are all connected with fiberglass tape. Once in place, everything is lined up and easy to secure with hex bolts and screws. All of the center legs are sturdy and supportive. They are able to be leveled if you are on an uneven surface. The only way that I can see that they would come loose is if they were put on incorrectly. My only complaint about assembly is that only some of the slats are secured to the frame so some creaking can occur. It is easy to drill pilot holes and secure them with wood screws or do like I did and just add a dab of glue at those spots and problem solved. I've recently bought the matching nightstands and they have a similar good quality and no assembly is required.

I bought this bed for a Sleep Number mattress, and it's been perfect. With the help of a friend, it was easy to put together, and it feels absolutely steady and strong even with my 300 pound, 6'8" husband sleeping in it! I love the color and the simplicity---it helps minimize the size of a very large mattress (California King).

I have to say I was skeptical to order this bed frame after reading the reviews others have written. I decided to go ahead with it and am very happy I did. The shipment arrived quickly in three boxes, and the pieces were well packaged without a scratch or dent in the wood. The frame was in perfect condition. All of the hardware was included...in fact there was one extra of each screw and washer. The frame was very easy to assemble by the instructions. I was able to put it together quickly and all screws and holes lined up beautifully. I was concerned about the stability of the middle leg and had no problems. The ends on the center pegs are on screws to adjust height if needed for uneven flooring to make sure all is level. I had a carpenter friend come over to take a look before putting the mattress on it to troubleshoot any potential problems that might need added screws or supports and all checked out with him. I did add plywood on top of the slats for a more even surface for the mattress after experiencing challenges with slat frames in the past. The frame is completely stable and solid on wood flooring. It does not move or make noise when sleeping on it. I also took a chance in trying to match a headboard I already had and was thrilled to see the color matched exactly. It is a dark wood with a cherry undertone that shows up under light. Someone mentioned that in a review so I took a chance on the frame since that was the color I needed. The cherry undertone does not standout without more direct light, but it is there. Although I started out skeptical, I am thrilled I took the chance...it is a great bed frame.
I was looking for a simple, inexpensive bed for my small apartment and this did the trick. The bed looks nice and doesn't take up a lot of space. It feels sturdy for the most part, despite it's bare bones construction, but I would recommend reinforcing the center support legs. The center support legs aren't part of the main bed frame and you have to attach them during assembly. They are very narrow and slide around when you move in bed. I cut lengths of 4"x4" lumber to replace the center support legs and have been sleeping soundly ever since. Other than that minor inconvenience, I would recommend this bed. You can't beat the price!

This bed was easy to put together and fit, but was constantly breaking within a week. The center support legs fell out and broke in a few days, and then the side supports broke. My husband fixed it with a few 2x4s and now it is very sturdy, but it was ridiculous how quickly the thing fell apart!

The platform bed looks exactly as pictured on the website. We purchased the California king size have been using it for about 2 weeks now and it appears very sturdy. My husband and I put the bed together in less than 15 minutes. I would have given an excellent instead of good rating on the quality except there was a bolt missing that is built in to one of the sideboards.
It had a few small knicks in the side from shipping but nothing to warrant a return... just put it together and it was a breeze to assemble and very sturdy. i hesitated to buy something like this online, but do NOT regret it. Wish I had bought it last year when I first saw it.
