We have an Ikea frame (el cheapo model) and a Tempurpedic mattress. We've had it for four years and have had no trouble with it. The only thing I dislike is that the mattress is wicked heavy and floppy (king-sized) and it rests inside the frame rather than on top of it, so it's hard to change the sheets.
Surviving sleep deprivation one day at a time with dd (Oct '11) & ds (Oct '08).
We really disliked ours. It looked fine & was comfortable enough but the slats turned out to be a giant pita. After a few months we started having problems with the slats crashing through the frame in the middle of the night. After awhile it started happening every. single. night. until I screwed a 2x4 into the frame across the center. The problem is that the side rails are flexible & a little flimsy so they would move some with our movements on the bed & then there was enough room for the slats to shift & fall.
It never happens to my in-laws (who have the same bed) but they have a boxspring, we did not as the reason we bought the bed was that a boxspring would not fit up our stairs.
We have friends who have had the exact same problem we've had.
