If this bed looks good to you, and you don't mind that the powder coated finish doesn't look textured, I say BUY THIS BED. It will be hard to find such a great quality new product for a price this low. I was completely satisfied. I do wish Overstock.com would take out that detail about texture because it is deceiving (they said they would, but it was still there when I wrote this review).
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The description, last I checked, still said "Powder-coated finish gives a matte black look with a texture to it." There doesn't appear to be a texture (or much of one). And I'd say the color is more like a dark gun metal. But, unlike other reviewers, I don't consider the bed to be particularly shiny. It's like eggshell paint - not shiny or glossy and not flat. Somewhere in between. I liked it a lot. Plus the finish is indeed powder-coated and, I would concur, virtually indestructible.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is very good, especially for the price - light enough to easily assemble and to move the bed, but not flimsy by any means.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Except for different interpretations on the finish, the description of the bed was accurate.
