The first bed they sent had one side rail with a large crack at the end. I asked for a replacement SIDE RAIL but they ended up sending me the entire bed once again which was a hassle to return, as it arrives in 3 separate and heavy/odd-shaped boxes. Not to mention the amount of wasted fuel... As for the bed itself, I'm really happy with the style and quality! It's for a guest room so I didn't want to spend much, but needed something simple/modern to fit in with the danish-style furniture in the rest of the house. And because it's for a guest room, it won't be getting a lot of use so I can only speak for the initial quality. It feels quite solid and sturdy to me, certainly more solid than the standard metal frame we were using before. I did need to put gripper pads under the feet to keep the frame & mattress from moving on our hardwood floors when bumped or pushed, but now it doesn't budge. ( The heavier the mattress, the more solid it will feel and ours is on the light side.) I made a point of seeing if I could get the frame to creak or wobble--it felt very solid and made no ominous sounds. One thing to think about --if you want a tailored modern look with this bed (or want to be able to see the bed frame at all), you may need to drop a size on quilts/duvets/comforters, etc or specifically get full-size bedding (not "full/queen") because once the box spring is gone, there's not as much space between the top of the mattress and the floor with this frame. I'm using a twin-size quilt on this full-size platform bed (it tucks in nicely on the sides without extra bulk) with a full/queen duvet folded at the foot of the bed (it's the only way it won't overwhelm the bed--it works, but it was also on the smaller side compared to other full/queen duvets.) At one point I draped a full/queen duvet from a different bed over it and it nearly touched the floor on 3 sides. Yikes. Just something to be aware of. I was also able to rest a headboard on the frame and lean it against the wall. Since the top of the frame has slightly raised blocks on all four corners, the base of the headboard stays trapped between the frame and mattress, which saves me from needing to drill large holes in the wall to hang it--an added bonus for me.
