Great but heavy product, but totally worth it! from Oklahoma City, OK on 07/15/2013 – Verified Buyer
Okay, so when the instructions say it takes 2 people to put this together, they aren't kidding! It takes at least one really strong person and one person who is quick with a screwdriver. Whoever thought let's tell them to put the trim around the edge last! is cruel and mean! You get the whole (VERY HEAVY) thing put together and then you have to tilt the whole thing on it's side while you screw in like 5 screws on one side and then do the same on the other and then again on the other because trying to screw them in straight up while laying on your back is seriously IMPOSSIBLE. Assembly aside, the bed is great! We love it, it's structurally sound and super comfortable and quiet! All of which our previous bed was not! You really can't beat the quality for the price! There was one scrape on the trim of the wood that wasn't major and we'll probably just color in with a brown marker and you'll never notice it. So overall it's a great product just expect to spend a couple hours of hard work on it!

Affordable and stylish bed from USA on 10/01/2014 – Verified Buyer
This bed is affordable and very nice for my temporary usage. It is extremely sturdy and makes no noise at all, especially coupled with my casper foam bed. I would highly recommend for those looking for a nice looking bed that don't want to spend a lot of money.

My single dislike is enough to knock a star off. On the trim of the bed, there is a rounded off edge on one side and a flat side on the other. For some reason they made it so you have to put the rounded off sides in towards the bed rather than facing out of the bed. The makes for unneeded sharp corners all around the left and right side of the bed. The foot of the bed does not have this issue, they orientated the round edge facing out. All of the rounded edges should have been facing out in my opinion to save my legs!

Meh, it's OK from Brooklyn, NY on 10/15/2014 – Verified Buyer
I'm giving it three stars because I can't give it two and a half. The Pros are: it's relatively cheap and it provides firm support. But, you get what you pay for. The materials are, of course, cheap; the particle board that operates as the platform is slightly larger than my queen mattress, leaving a rim where you can see that particle board; the edges of the bed, while rounded, are still perfect for smacking your legs right above the ankles (if you have a small bedroom, like I have); and lastly, the directions for putting together the bed are poor. I don't understand why manufacturers can't includes those things ... what are they called ... oh yeah, words, in their directions, rather than a photo that kind of looks like the materials. You'll be left wondering, why are there so many holes, why do I have a bunch of dowels left, etc? Anyway, you'll need two people to put this together. It took us about an hour and 20 minutes.

South Shore Back Bay Platform Bed from Maplewood, NJ on 08/16/2014 – Verified Buyer
This bed looks nice once completed. However it was not easy to assemble because the frame was not square, resulting in the platform panels not lining up at the top and bottom. I had to remove, reposition and refasten the panels several times. The instructions tell you to install the outer platform panels first, but when you do that the last interior panel won't fit. Also, the moldings had to be fastened from underneath because the bed was too heavy to flip upside down. As there are no pilot holes in the molding, it is nearly impossible to get the screws into the wood all the way, especially from such an awkward position. A short phillips screwdriver is required, and you can't get much torque on it from underneath. Definitely a 2 person job. The manufacturer needs to rethink the assembly process; needs improvement.

Good for the price but a couple flaws from VA on 08/27/2014 – Verified Buyer
Bed was fairly easy to put together, maybe an hour with one person assembling and the other reading instructions and holding the pieces in place. Two minor complaints. One, a couple screw holes were off and didn't match up with pieces underneath. Only affected the look of the bed in the back where the wood lines up but still frustrating. We also found a thin but very long crack going down the center of one of the planks. We are hoping that it doesnt get worse over time. Also, be aware of the weight capacity with this bed. We were a little concerned about 2 guests and a dog sleeping on this, especially with the small crack. Lastly, as other reviewers said, this bed is staying where you assemble it. I have no idea how we're going to move this bed next time we move as it will not fit through the door or down the staircase. Most likely it will have to be taken apart. Just hope it can be put back together soundly!

best choice bed frame from Moscow, ID on 07/23/2014 – Verified Buyer
For the price this is a great bed frame. It helps to have two people for putting it together. Even a second person for reading the instructions helps. The box is very heavy but it came earlier then expected and within an hour it was assembled. It doesn't slide well so I recommend putting it together in the place where you want it. We used it for a memory foam pad and it fit well and was just right.

Love! from Huntsville, AL on 08/02/2014 – Verified Buyer
I ordered this bed a few days before I was to move to into my new apartment and I love it! It's sturdy, comfortable, and delivery was quick. It took us a couple of hours to put it together though. We got stuck on one part. Overall it's a great bed.

Great price for an Ikea-esque Product from Alexandria, VA on 05/26/2015
For starters, I'm a big Ikea fan, so this isn't a knock on the product. I couldn't find what I wanted at Ikea so I thought I would give this product a try. It was packaged pretty well and I was impressed how it was packaged, but a corner was chipped, most likely from the shipping and the weight. I still would have given this 5 stars despite the one cracked corner, but what knocked off one of the stars is that this took us half a day to put it together because the instructions were not entirely correct. We had to put about 10% of it together per instruction, and then the next instruction had the pieces switched. We just hoped that it wouldn't matter if we tried putting it together with the instruction booklet as a loose guide. We then had to redrill some holes, despite it telling us you did not need a drill. I think with just a screwdriver it would have taken much longer and some of the holes did not line up to what it needed to attach to, so a drill was needed. All in all, not bad for the price you pay, I wasn't looking for something permanent but temporary until I found/built the bedframe I want.

Looks great, works perfect from CENTRALIA, MO on 05/23/2015 – Verified Buyer
This platform is working out great! The materials are heavy, and it helps to have at least 2 people to put it together. We had 3 (granted two of us weren't handy at all), so that made it even easier.

It didn't take that long to assemble, and we only had one problem with the assembly steps. 4 of the side pieces were stamped backwards. They were identical in sets of 2, and they had simply stamped the wrong identifying number on each set of 2. We figured it out very easily while reading directions, looking at the pictures, and using our common sense. So we just swapped the parts from what it said in the directions, and it came out perfect! No big deal, though I could see how it might confusing someone who wasn't prepared/expecting that or who potentially isn't handy or has trouble thinking through something like that.

Anyway, it works great and is very sturdy. I hadn't bought bookshelves yet so I lined both sides, underneath the lip of the platform with books, which looks cool and fits perfectly!

I'm very happy with this purchase.

Pros: Solid materials, looks great, sturdy, good value

I really love this platform bed. The directions were easy to follow and I didn't have a problem putting it together. I was surprised that it came with a marker to hide any scratches you might get.
