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.
