Cheap Bed frameFeb 22, 2011
I didn't expect much for the price I paid for the bed, but you really do get what you paid for; a really cheap, fragile frame.
PROS: The instructions for assembly were clear and pretty easy to follow and I do like the drawers on both sides which really helped me out.
CONS: After assembly is where the big problems begin. This is not a bed frame that you will own for 10 years or probably even 1 year. Both my brother and I purchased this bed within a couple of months of each other and we are both experiencing the same problems.
- The connectors used to keep the entire frame together are stripped. If you try to move the bed, the materials used instantly strip against the steel bolts and will not stay together anymore. This means that if you move at all while sleeping, the ends will start to move apart and the boards holding you up will slip loose.
- The boards holding up our mattress no longer stay in place. This started after about a month. They all move towards the center so by morning your mattress has sunk in at the edges. This also puts a lot of strain on the running boards on the side and I can hear them making cracking sounds every time I get up.
- The drawers have started to come apart and don't close all the way, again this is probably because the bolt holes are stripped and the bed won't stay together.
- Don't plan on moving it once its set. My brother tried to move his to his new house and it never fit together again after taking it apart.
OVERALL: I would say this bed isn't worth the particle board and cheap plywood its made of, even for something temporary. Just sleep on the floor with your mattress and save for an extra month and by a decent frame that isn't made by Prepac Sonoma or one of the other names they go by.

Exactly what we wantedDec 28, 2010
By T M
The platform bed is exactly what we wanted, and we were not disappointed. Follow the instructions, you should have this bed together within an hour. Having a second person as a helper is a benefit to the assembly, but one person is able to do it.
Unit came in three (3) boxes. They are heavy, so if you have problems lifting over 50 pounds, have a helper.
Packaging is wonderful. Very well protected in the packaging. For heavy boxes like these, one can expect they may get dropped, and slid around during transport. A few bumps and scrapes on the outside of the boxes, but the great packing protects the contents very well. Not one mark on the contents, the bed parts, itself.
Well worth the money, which was less expensive than many other places checked, including retail stores.

Really Nice for the PriceNov 07, 2010
I bought this bed for the same reason most people buy it. It was cheap and provides some much needed drawer space. I honestly did not have high expectations for it. I was pleasantly surprised. It took my husband and I about an hour and a half to put it together. It was easy to assemble. It has clean lines and once you put your linens on the bed looks pretty. One thing to keep in mind is that any type of free standing nightstand or side table renders the first drawer on either side useless. All in all I would recommend this product. I am very happy with it.
Boards too short, rail very flimsyMar 15, 2013
By Jennifer Kush
This bed has a metal rail at both the head and the foot of the bed. This rail is supposed to hold up the boards that hold the mattress. The boards are supposed to slide into the rail that is less than an inch deep. The problem is that the boards come popping out the bottom of the rail because the rail isn't deep enough and the boards aren't quite long enough. My daugher isn't a large person, and yet the boards pop out continuously. The drawers don't line up in a way that allows them to close smoothly (there is a gap on one side).
Get what you pay forAug 24, 2011
By Alex Cunningham
The bed is more or less attractive, relatively simple to assemble, utilitarian without being plain, and inexpensive for the high quality of its construction. But for all that savings, the cost is in its finicky, easily-misaligned or broken drawers, which are of course the main reason to purchase a bed of this design. A nice starter/apartment bed, but hardly anything special.
