Nice solid platform, though at first we had trouble with the flimsy construction of the center support leg mounting inserts. The metal mounting inserts are not so robust, and we had a startling 3 inch "freefall" during early QC testing, when 4 out of the 5 legs threaded inserts pulled out. A little gorilla glue and a few hours later, the issue was fully remedied, and the center support slat has stood strongly since. Because of the so-so design of the center support slat leg mounting points (all other connections were designed well) , I'm only giving 4 out of 5 stars, but if there were several categories to rate, all the others would get 5 star. We love this platform! The wood is beautiful, and when it's fully assembled it's rock solid. Oh yeah, and like another reviewer mentioned, it is indeed squeak-less!
