I love this futon! I purchased it a few weeks ago for my college dorm room, and couldn't be more pleased. I used site to store, and was able to fit it in our 2011 ford explorer with both the passenger rows folded down. It took around an hour for two people to assemble, but I thought the directions were mostly clear. It's on the firm side, but I still find it really comfortable, and have even slept on it twice. Personally I found it plenty comfortable to sleep on in the "couch' position, but i tried it with the back pushed down and it's very easy to do if you want the extra room to sleep. I think it looks great, and is a nice option if you want a futon that looks more like a couch instead of the more traditional "futon mattress and frame" type.
