I never liked to sleep on box-spring-type beds. In fact, I really like sleeping on a futon and so far, this futon has been great. It's thick and sturdy (which makes it really heavy to handle, my #2 complaint) but the comfort more than makes up for the immobility. All my friends who come by my place have marveled at the comfort of this futon and from their questions, I know they are wondering if they should get one for themselves. Definitely a good buy if you like hard / medium-hard type cotton surface for sleeping. If you like the spring-y type of feeling of a real bed, this is not for you. My #1 complaint of the product is that the material seems to shift over time, its distribution, from what I can see, is due to the weight of the different body parts placed onto it. I will probably need to move it around from time to time to ensure that the material gets more evenly distributed.
