I agree with another ppters, it depends on how the cot is put together in regards to the drop side and also there were mainly reported problems in America, I fretted so much over buying a drop sided cot especially the one hand operation ones but DH convinced me to get one.
Anyhow once I read your thread I thought I'd better reply and say I have been dealing with Tasman Eco for about a week now as it appears DS cot (Capri) has a bow in one of the head boards, they have been amazing to deal with, they are working really hard to solve the issues, I had someone out looking at the cot ASAP who gave it a good service etc. I highly recommend them.

We also got out cot from Babys R Us and it doesn't have a drop side, I was annoyed at first but have gotten used to it now, I like that there is no risk there.

We have a boori cot with a drop side, I am pretty average hight (5'6'') and I never use it. When DS was newborn we had the base up higher, we lowered it when he could sit up. Putting the side up and down on our cot is too noisy to do while DS is asleep anyway, it would wake him up

We have a boori cot too, DD was in it from about 4 months.
It has a drop side but I never use it, it's a bit hard to put up and down.
I'm 5'2 and it's no issues with the side up at all times.
Mum has a target white cot and I struggle a bit with that one but never enough to actually drop the side.
