I haven't been in that seat myself, but I talked to coworkers who flew F class or passengers I talked to before or after the flight.

Most are really glad that they have a proper bed. They say it is comfortable and they have a far better sleep than in a converted seat.

What they don't like is: they cannot sit at the window anymore. The beds are at the window and the seat is at the aisle:

Thanks, I dont find the bed visually appealing, more so made up, not very classy, the rest is great.

I took a flight recently from FRA-PVG first class on LH 744. The find it to be one of the best first class in the industry.
Only 8 seats/beds in the upper deck. The service was superb only the inflight entertainment could be better.
Actually you can see out the window quite well over the bed so I don't think it is an issue with the above post.

The not out of the window looking from the seat itself is the most people complain about. During take off and landing you have to be sitting in the seat, so you cannot see that much anymore...
