Couldn't be happier with this product. I had some concern about the "wire" platform, as did others, but not to worry -- it's very heavy wire and is soldered at each point where it contacts the frame, so there is never a span of more than about 8 or 9 inches. Because of the thickness of the "wire" and the short spans, it is rock solid. The frame itself is extremely sturdy, especially after you bolt the two halves together. It is very well packed, and arrived undamaged. It's painted (or maybe powder coated) a very dark brown, and seems very durable. I now have a skirt on it that hides the legs well. Plenty of room underneath for hiding my excess stuff. You can't go wrong with this purchase, as long as you intend to put a skirt on it to hide the legs. And the price is right too.
Shipping was fast and the unit arrived well-packaged and in good shape. Assembly was a no-brainer and took about 20 minutes. Instructions were minimal but completely adequate. Taking a cue from other reviews we've encountered, we coated each fastener with lock-tite and made sure they were sufficiently tightened, being careful not to overtighten and strip out the threaded aluminum sockets. Everything fit perfectly. All holes lined up. The key to putting things like this together is to get all fasteners loosely in place before snugging them down. Our unit did have the slots in the legs for the head section for mounting a headboard. Installation of the support slats was easy and the pre-installed velcro strips seem to do an adequate job of keeping them in position. Everything seems to be well-supported. We have not found it necessary to use the adhesive strips to hold the mattress in place.
