This bed gives you what you expect - I was looking for a good price, and found one; if you are paying this price for a platform bed, you can not expect the best quality wood (it looks like particle board underneath the black exterior). So it is a terrific value. Expectations are met - I did not expect it to be REAL hardwood; I bought the bed knowing this. The appearance is fine. Black exterior. Here were my issues, the drawers are tucked away nicely UNDER the bed, but to the point you have to lean pretty far UNDER to reach them. As we were putting the bed together, some screws went through the particle board quite easily (to the other side). One issue I've already had is the corners are sharp - while making the bed, I've already scratched my legs about 3-4 times when turning the corner at the end of the bed. I will have to buy plastic, corner protectors. Finally, my worry is durability. If someone plops down on the bed a bit to rough (say teenage boys), I can't help but wonder if it is going to hold up....time will tell.
