I bought this bed almost a year ago today & I've had problems ever since. The setup of the bed was pretty simple. It took my boyfriend about 30 mins to assemble. We wanted to use my box spring since I have no other place to keep it. But the bed would fall straight thru the frame.So, we tried to use both the slats & the box spring. The slats couldn't support the box spring with the matress. Even though it FIT, you would have to be very careful getting in bed. I was afraid to do anything but sleep in the bed with fear of the bed falling. (which happened alot) Not sure if it was a weight issue, (I'm 140 & my boyfriend is 190) So, we decided to remove the box spring & only use the slats and the matress. BUT, we still had the same problem. Slats fell thru. Not at first of course, but usually when you're not expecting it. Like when in bed with a hot cup of coffee & your laptop. (just imagine how that ended) I wish I would have never ever ever bought this bed. It's a wate of money. And of course the warranty doesn't cover Mfg defects. If this is the kind of crap Overstock sells, I'll gladly steer clear of thier products. Throwing bed in alley ASAP!
