I really liked the modern look of this crib and was very excited to get it. However, the setup was awful! It took my husband and me 3 hours to do and we had to re-assemble a few times because the directions are just so unclear about which side is which. The worst part was we finally got it assembled and ready to drop the mattress base into place and it would not line up with the screw holes. We pulled and pulled and in order to get it to fit, the metal brackets scratched up the side posts of the crib. I was very dissapointed! And to be honest, my husband and I are handy people and normal intelligence, so I am hesitant to say it was user error. It was just such a frustrating process that I have lost my excitement about it altogether. Also, the crib only has 2 mattress heights, 3 would be much better because there is a lot of time that the baby can sit up/stand but not crawl out and therefore it doesnt need to be lowered completely to the ground.
Beyond that, I do like the crib, it is sturdy and really good looking.
