i really liked the features of both low profile and storage, so took a chance to purchase online. I read the reviews carefully, and they were very helpful The bed ended up being shipped (unopened) across country before I finally set it up - by myself! It's a high quality bed - the leather seams are straight and well crafted. The directions a bit short on details - pay attention to the diagram as well as the description. I ended up putting the support bar in backwards and had to turn it around - the bed wouldn't lower when the support was too close to the headboard. To connect the hydraulics and the mattress support, you really need two people. I did it alone and ended up tying the brackets closed so I could place the platform on the bed. Even then, I couldn't get the last bolt in. Fortunately, the new mattress was being delivered just as I was struggling with it, and the delivery folks helped me out. I think this item is a good value.
