Ive only had the bed frame for a couple of weeks, so cant comment on its longevity, but, at the moment, I couldnt be happier. Very simple to put together, I managed it on my own because Im impatient, but, for health and safety, speed and convenience, I would recommend finding a second pair of hands. The lifting mechanism is very stiff to start with, dont be frightened to put a fair amount of weight on both corners to get it going, but after a few goes, its eased up beautifully, just as the instructions suggest.
The base of the storage section feels a little flimsy, but for the price, I wasnt expecting much more than what was provided. This could be easily replaced or stabilised at a later date if necessary.
All in all, very good value for money, well worth the purchase.
