What reviewers didn't like

Paint on the railing might chip off
Graco Benton crib was broken by a two year-old toddler who liked to jump around in his crib. The wood frame broke and the metal mattress support buckled. The take-home message: if you plan to have multiple kids, you’d be better off buying something more substantial.
Toddler guardrail and full size conversion kit sold separate. Some reports of easy paint chipping on the painted models.
Few visible holes and exposed screws. If you are very accurate and give a lot of attention to fine aesthetic detail, you should look into high budget cribs.
Some of the parents reported that the baby’s leg sometimes get caught between the slats. There is no covering for where the screw goes in.
