We received the bed extremely fast and you can't beat the price that was charged for shipping. The bed was easy to assemble and looks nice in our bedroom. CONS: The headboard squeaks badly with every movement. It even squeaks while changing the sheets. Personally, a noisy bed like this would be a deal killer for me if I knew this ahead of time. The frame sits fairly low to the ground and is a couple of inches too big for our standard sized king mattress. Because of the height, we had to remove the bed skirt since it was dragging too much on the ground. To mitigate the size of the frame we just centered the mattress to make it look as good as possible. This still resulted in pretty big gaps between the mattress and the head and footboards.
