For the price I paid, I'm pretty happy with the bed. I was able to build it myself in a couple of hours. It's a pretty straightforward, no frills bed. It is standard height so has room under the bed to store things if you need to. It did start creeking after about 6 months into owning the bed, but I just tightened the screws and creeking is gone (I think 16 screws total). I did have to buy some vertical plywood slats because my mattress is memory foam so that added to the final cost, but I'm pretty satisfied. I'd say if you're on a budget or just need something temporary, this is a good solution. Just keep an Allen wrench closeby so you can tighten the screws every once in a while.
