Shopping for this bed was quite a trip for me. I came across the bed doing searches for platform beds. There were rave reviews. In short, I'm okay with the purchase. 1. First, I don't understand why this is at $399 for a king size bed and http://www.walmart.com/ip/Modus-Furniture-International-Nevis-Espresso-Platform-Bed/12569973 is about $200 more! Same bed, but with added support to slats. Doesn't really justify an additional $200. The product is worth $400. 2. Bed has a minimalistic design. It's good, but reviews had set my expectations higher. 3. Quality is good. Wood and feels very sturdy. 4. Assembly is relatively easy. Took me about an hour, just by myself. Instruction quality could be improved. Holes in slats did not line up with pilot holes on railing. Could never get it right. Had to improvise. I suggest having help. Especially when attaching the railing. I almost broke it. 5. Shipping comes in 3 boxes. Shipping is expensive. I did a site to store and picked it up myself. Box 1 - Head board and foot board. For this, I needed a pickup truck. Box 2 - Slats. Box 3 - Railing and slat support. Boxes 2 and 3 may fit in a mini van. (maynot be a comfortable fit). 6. Packaging is bad and needs to be better atleast for the headboard/footboard box. The footboard arrived with a huge crack that cannot be ignored. Walmart sent me a replacement headboard and footboard on the condition that I return the original pair. They paid UPS to pick it up from my house. Hope this helps... and sellers, if you read this, please have better packaging for the headboard/footboard box.
