Joking aside, it doesn't look particularly sturdy so wouldn't expect it to last. But then at that price for a double who would?

Agreed. I think where the slats join on the sides by pieces of wood screwed in to the outside frame would be a worry. Good to see solid slats for a change though.
No centre support by the look of it

There is. You can see the gap along the centre of the slats.

I'm crap at DIY. Probably give way whilst i'm asleep in bed!

My son bought this bed on Wednesday, tried to assemble it on Thursday and managed to break part of it in doing so. Hst, it's not bad for the price, just don't expect a lot for your money - and any longevity from it imo.

Just out of interest, I like to peruse charity shops and I saw two pine beds this week for around £100 that were definitely sturdier looking than this.

Great shout about the charity shops. My missus buys regularly from BHF as she does the shabby chic upcycle thing. Loads of real sturdy wood furniture at great prices.

If you don't live in London you don't need under bed storage? This is why I prefer the north
Are these made from the same chocolate that the cheap car chocolate clutches are mad from?.
It looks like a nice enough and good quality bed frame to me. Great value, HEAT.
If you want a bed that lasts I'd buy a classic divan bed. These bed with slats are annoying, flimsy and uncomfortable. If the slats do break (they will) don't replace it with more slats just pop into B&Q or your local timber yard with the inside measurements of where the slat would be and get a cheap MDF board and nail gun the board in place then you'll have a much more hassle free and comfortable bed. I've had to do this with a few of these beds that have slats for family members.
I disagree I've had a not too dissimilar pine bed for 5 years now and even recently dismantled it and reassembled in a new property. Making sweeping statements isn't helping anyone. If you have experience with this bed that's understandable however.

There is a centre piece that is likely supported further by a small vertical piece. Once a decent mattress is on the frame unless you are jumping there shouldn't be reason for it to snap because the weight is evenly distributed.
Many reviews say the main beams on the side snap with little use. Has put me off.

This happens to a lot of these beds that are designed to use slats. The main side beams have a tendency to break because of a lack of support. Good information for potential buyers that as it's definitely something they should be aware of.
I bought a bed which I sit in now, and is almost identical to this abit 6 ago. It works for me just don't go jumping on it or expect support for two large bodies. Invest in the mattress not the frame
Quite a lot of cheap ones around at this sort of rate I should think, we got one for a similar price a few years ago. How flimsy it is, is critical.

We have a solid wooden bed that has so far managed around 5 years and 1 house move, also solid wood slats i think this is a good deal to be honest and if i were in the market for a new bed, this would be a serious contender
