This is a very, very nice Futon Sofa. I've owned, sat, or slept on several, and this one is by far the best. I agree with some of the reviews stating the middle/joint can be hard to sit or sleep on, but I do not believe its something you should negatively rate or review for. It's definitely one of those "you knew the flaw of what you were buying, why review it poorly for that flaw" type of situation. Furthermore, its a sofa, who sits in the center of a two-seat sofa, or between cushions? On the note of comfort, I've sat on this sofa for a few hours at a time, and slept on it for at least a few weeks now. Keep in mind I have a queen-sized bed with a brand new, very comfortable mattress, but I very often opt to use this Futon. The features greatly outweigh the flaws, such as the 3 different recline positions (upright, half-way/lounging, sleeping) and 2 seperate recline sections (left and right sections). Meaning you could be sound asleep while your buddy is using the upright or "lounge" positions, vice versa, etc. Other features include added legs in hidden zippered compartments that you can fold out for added support when in the sleeping position. I've found it handy to even leave the legs out if I know myself or someone else will be sleeping on it. The mechanism for raising and lowering the back(s) is very simple and sturdy. You'll quickly learn the sounds of the clicks and how far to pull up or lower it. In a nutshell, pull PAST where you want the set the back to allow it to lower, and pull TO or slightly above where you want to set the back to choose a position. Then obviously lower all the way to sleep. The Andora by DHP is one of the nicest pieces of furniture I've ever owned, if you can get past the (obvious) flaws of a futon or sofa, you won't be disappointed. Pro-tip: Save yourself a TON of time and wrist-strain by gathering a basic powered screwdriver with hex bits, and small ratchet set for attaching the arms/sides to the main seating area. Using the included basic wrenches takes forever and left me a bit sore!
