I loved just about everything with this bed, besides the slats. It was VERY quick to go together and only took around 45 minutes. You will surely need 2 people to set up the base. I have a tempurpedic mattress which has to be on a fully flat surface so I bought two equal size pieces of plywood from Home Depot (which cut them to size for free!) and put them over the slats. Before I bought the plywood though I tried it without and when first stepping into the bed you could hear slats kind of creak/crack (I'm a rather heavy guy). With the plywood on top that all went away as the load is more evenly distributed. I've been using it for a few weeks now and it's such a nice addition to my bedroom. Also, even with an oversized tempurpedic, there is a lot of space around the bed as others have complained about. The issue isn't that big to me and hasn't affected how I like the bed.
