I first bought a futon from a "big box" store, it was very heavy, but great looking. After a little over a month, the adjustment apparatus wouldn't allow me to set it anymore, so I returned it, then searched for a replacement at several stores with no luck. (I needed something that converted to a bed for my small apartment)
My last stop was Walmart before I quit for the day, and when I saw this sofa bed, I was extremely pleased. It cost much less than the futon, and for $30 more, I also purchased the matching recliner. The assembly was minimal, and the size was compact enough to fit both pieces in my 10ft x 12ft living/bedroom. Two pieces of great looking, inexpensive, easy to assemble, compact furniture with 4 functions.
What an amazing deal! I couldn't be happier.
