The bed itself looks quite handsome and is sturdy, which was one of the main criteria for me. I did not want some flimsy stuff that you would have to gingerly climb on & off. It was pretty easy to assemble although I am not a big fan of having to screw the slats into the bed frame. The screws provided were too short to penetrate through the slats and I had to use my own, plus you'd run the risk of splitting the wood. I used the small profile box spring and a thick mattress so the climb-on height becomes standard, which is higher than I would like, but is acceptable. Delivery was on time, and the internet experience was pretty good, so all in all a good product.
