Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JoJo Very nice porch swing!
This swing is very sturdy and nice looking. I was surprised to read some of the negative reviews for this swing as I think it is comfortable and I don't have the same issues with wind catching the awning. If I know it's going to rain, I simply lean the awning a bit so that the rain runs off and doesn't pool. I would also recommend spraying a water-proofing coating on the seat and awning to keep water from penetrating the material.
This is sturdy and swings smoothly without the annoying noises other less quality swings tend to have.
I do think, however, that it's difficult and cumbersome to transform the seat to a futon. Because the seat is wider, you really need 2 people to perform this task. It also does not fold down flat. It does have a slight "V" shape when it's folded down.
As far as the awning is concerned, the manufacturer would benefit its customers by putting a stability bar through the material from side to side to keep it from drooping if it does have the water pooling issue others have complained about.
I also think the bottom leg caps should have holes drilled into them so the swing can be screwed into a deck or other surface to keep it from "crawling" when you're using the swinging benefit. If you don't have room to store this swing inside during winter months, I would suggest getting a canvas waterproof cover to protect it from the elements.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PM poor construction
Bought this in June,2016. Putting it together was hard but once i put it all together looked great. Hardly used it for 40 days with mainly my kids and the lower back horizontal bar between the ends broke. The pieces i guess are welded together and it came off from the joints. Very unhappy with the product quality. Spoke to Home Depot and most likely will return though unassembly is going to be a pain.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TominAZ Worst Canopy ever
This was easy to assemble and the adjustable seat appears to be OK. Now the bad, terrible canopy design, the teeth do not hold the canopy in place for anything other than a soft breeze. The canopy is only attached on the sides, no other support. So any bit of rain collects in a pool, regardless of the canopy angle. We haven't had this long enough to evaluate the durability of the fabric.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mopar looks good but missing parts
Unit is what i wanted. Cushions look sturdy, but have to wait a couple of weeks for 4 parts integral to the build. Bad QC.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by badchoice do not waste your time or money
We bought this swing a week ago. What a bad choice! It is extremely poor quality. The seat cushion can not be removed to put indoors, nor does it have any support as it is just a sling between two bars. The fabric is so terrible that it cannot be wiped off because of the roughness that catches everything. Overall terrible design. I'm surprised home depot would carry something this bad, but i guess thats why they did not have one on display.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by nurse76 beautiful swing for the 1st month
This was a beautiful swing, but for the cost I was regretting the purchase a month later. I agree with other consumers that the material is poor for outdoors and I even tried a low powered pressure washer to get the dirt off, no luck. Not very comfortable either, the seat sags since its only held by mesh and later I wished it had sat a bit higher off the ground.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BlueDobby Well Built But Canopy Is Flawed
The Futon Swing was easy to assemble and the swing itself seems to be of good quality. Unfortunately the design of the canopy is flawed in 2 ways: 1) the canopy side support stoppers aren't designed with enough bite (or deep enough teeth) to allow the canopy to be secured properly without over tightening them; 2) without a center support of any kind for the canopy it holds rain water and has to be dumped after each rain fall.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MikeMikeMike After Two Years
After two years of use:
The canopy is the only real problem with this chair. Even a slight wind will blow it around. A good gust will flip the chair completely. The canopy can tear fairly easily and once it does wind will cause the tears to expand. I tried to call the manufacturer to get replacement canopy. They wanted to charge $65.00 for replacement, which is expensive but tolerable. However, they didn't take credit cards and wanted me to send a check to some mystery company in California, which is really horrible. Joe schmoe lawn service guy can accept credit cards with his iPhone but these guys cannot?
Anyways other than the canopy the chair has been great. Cleans easy with a light spray from the power washer.
