This is a pretty sturdy bed. But buys should beware of a few things: 1) The metal for the headboard and footboard is VERY thing for something like a bed. Mine came with several dents. The way it's packaged, I can't imagine many people would get it WITHOUT dents. Tightening down the screws even 'pretty' tight results in the metal bending. 2) As other have noted, the bed needs one more slat at the foot of the bed, and really one more at the head of the bed. 3) The bed could also use one or two more center supports. I think it'll be OK, but instead of the two legs in the center, they should have done three. 4) the metal scratches very easily. Mine also came with several scratches. I'll live with them, but it's frustrating. But all in all, I think once it's all together, it feels very sturdy, and doesn't seem like it's going to make noise. It feels very strong. Others have noticed the cheap welds, and this is true, I hope they hold up over time.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Close. Actual product feels lighter. It's definitely 'steel gray' in color.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The metal on the headboard and footboard is very thin and easily dents. Mine came with several dents. It seems nearly impossible the way they packaged it that it would come undamaged.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Fine
