Shoddy product, Bad assembly, Regrettable purchase from Los Angeles, CA on 11/28/2013
This review also appears on Amazon where they have verified that I purchased the product.

I have assembled pieces of Sauder, IKEA and others. In fact, over the past few days I put together six pieces of IKEA furniture.

This item came in a cardboard box that looked like it had fallen off the truck a few times. The box was equal parts packing tape and cardboard, with some large holes at the corner. Fortunately none of the pieces fell out.

As far as assembly goes: This took about six hours and was really the worst experience I've ever had with self-assembled furniture.

The instructions are sub-par. The drawings very faint and you'll need a magnifying glass to discern some of the important details needed to orient pieces correctly.

I've had to back track and disassemble the partially-assembled bed twice to fix mistakes made by unclear instructions.

Once I got to the point of laying the platform planks on the frame and the pre-drilled holes did not align. This is astonishingly bad craftsmanship from South Shore. I've had to drill my own holes to complete the assembly of the kit.

The assembled piece is fairly stable once you secure it in a place in the bedroom.

A queen size mattress rests on top of it perfectly. However, the platform has no lip or edge to hold the mattress in place so it's very easy to slide the mattress out of position when you walk by, or when you're making the bed. I will probably break out the drill and add a lip at a later date.

Another problem I'm having, as there is carpeting in this bedroom, is that the storage drawers are difficult to open. They basically rest right on the carpet and are dragging against the carpet every time you try to open them, so it requires some sturdy tugs to yank it open.

Overall, I'm very unhappy with this purchase.

Yes, it's cheap, but you can get cheap platform beds from IKEA for about the same price and you would have a much easier time assembling it, the assembly would fit together properly and you'll have a much sturdier, higher-quality piece of furniture at the end of it all.

suits our purposes/looks nice from Fort Lauderdale, FL on 07/30/2012 – Verified Buyer
*GOOD stuff-For the price, this bed is very nice looking and exactly what I expected from the pictures. It's perfect for my 16 year old son's room. He is thrilled with the surprise Zen/Guitar themed complete room makeover. This bed adds a sophisticated clean look (especially since there's no box spring which enables him to make his bed simply by pulling the comforter up). The drawers are roomy and allowed enough storage space to be able to remove a dresser adding space for a chair.
*Not So Good-BEWARE!!! This comes via freight! Queen size arrived in a flat cardboard box (about 9 feet longX2 feet wide X 8 inches deep and is HEAVY) Luckily I have a garage and was able to have the struggling driver put it in there. There was slight damage to the box but I didn't want to make the poor guy put it back in the truck. I hired a furniture service to assemble. Due the the weight and dimensions of the box they had to carry each piece separately up the stairs. It took these experienced men THREE hours to assemble! Luckily the damaged area is hidden by the mattress.

Platform Bed - 3 out of 5 from North Liberty, IA on 04/01/2014 – Verified Buyer
Shipping was very speedy. This would have been the perfect platform for my daughter's needs had it gone together smoothly. The holes did not line up and some of the holes made the wood on the connecting section split. I would recommend putting this together where you are going to be using it because it is very heavy and awkward to move; especially when the boards don't get screwed in because the holes don't line up. Also, we had to go purchase 6 screws as they were not included (shorted).

OK for what it is from Bolingbrook, IL on 11/20/2014 – Verified Buyer
Bed is ok for what it is, an inexpensive base for a mattress. With a few exceptions, parts fit as they should.

Inexpensive base for memory foam matress.
Drawer bottoms need extra reinforcement. One platform top section had screw hoples that could not be matched to instructions.

Good quality bed for a reasonable price from Brighton, MA on 11/03/2013 – Verified Buyer
Good overall quality for the price. A little bit confusing to assemble (the piece names are printed on the narrow sides, took me a bit to figure out), and the bed creaks a little bit, but I am ultimately quite satisifed with the look and feel!

Meh... from Steger, IL on 05/01/2013
Received everything in a timely fashion, that much I'll say.. But all the brackets for the drawers arrived busted. Completely busted. Everything else was fine.
