How good can a king size frame be for around $260, right?

We're really impressed with this frame.
Got this as a kind of temporary solution until we move out of our apartment and buy a place. Figured it would be decent enough to last a year or so, but didn't have super high expectations for build quality and fit/finish. How good can a king size frame be for around $260, right?
Well it's actually pretty great.
First of all I was struck by how hefty the box was. It weighed a lot more than I expected and that's because the metal components are really solid and the wood panels are a decent size and thickness (and yes they're real wood). The construction of the frame and how it screws together seems well engineered and I was able to assemble the frame by myself in around a half hour. Would have been even faster with a little help, but it was not difficult to do myself. The way it's built, you can take it apart in a few bigger pieces without disassembling the whole bed, so moving it should be pretty straightforward and low hassle. Assembly instructions are very clear and the number of steps is pretty minimal.
Once assembled, the bed has no wobble, does not make any rickety noises, and feels very solid. Vigorous activity does not cause the headboard to smack into the wall, in case you were wondering.
Another plus for me is that with a thick enough mattress, the footboard does not rise nearly as high as it appears to in the photos. We have a Tuft and Needle mattress with a memory foam topper and it is about level with the footboard. I don't really care for high footboards, so that's a win in my book.
So, we got a way better bed frame than we expected and now we're not so sure we'll be looking to replace this one any time soon. It's plenty sturdy and really does look nice. Has kind of a mild industrial look to it without being overly trendy.
