For the price this futon really can't be beat. I got it on sale for $198, for our game room. It has a modern, clean look that I love. The fabric is nice and I love the color. It was so easy to put together. It literally comes fold in a square and you just have to unfold, attach the arms and legs and your done. I did it by myself and I'm maybe a slightly stronger than average 5ft tall woman. As far as comfort goes, we had family over for Thanksgiving and no one thought it was unreasonably uncomfortable to sit on. It's a $250 futon, so it's not going to be as comfortable as a big fluffy couch. But it certainly isn't uncomfortable to sit on. If you're going to sleep on it, you might prefer to add a pillow top to it which is a simple fix. Overall this was a great buy that I don't regret in the least.
