Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by orchidlady Quality acrylic mirror for a reasonable price. Very secure shipping
I was looking for a shatterproof / acrylic mirror to be used in my children's playroom. After searching for several options on the Web I settled on this one from HD. A very good value for the money. Nothing else came close on the Web for a mirror of this size. It was very easy to hang with mirror clips for a 1/8" mirror although there is a little bit of play since the thickness is a little less than 1/8". For our application it is ok that the image isn't perfect (undistorted), I could have secured it to the wall with proper adhesive or used a backer board if I wanted it to be perfectly flat, with an undistorted image. It came packed very securely in double boxing that was like Fort Knox, so no issues with damage as I saw in reviews on competitors websites.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BilltownGirl Good deal
Package arrived well bundled and w/o damage. Even though the spec sheet claims this product can be cut with a plastic cutter and a straight edge, I very strongly recommend using a round saw even for straight cuts.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SpareThymeInk Safe Mirror for Church Nursery
I bought the mirror to use in a church nursery. I added molding to the edges and 1/4 inch mdf board to the back to finish it off. It was slightly less than stated size by a half inch or so each direction. It was a much better deal than buying a prefabricated one from a children's supply store.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SolarU Solar Cooker application fully tests acrylic mirror capabilities.
In the interest of going green and developing a prototype solar cooker, I had a huge problem of deciding on the ideal parabolic reflector material to use. After extensive research in using reflective foils, tapes, metals and glass mirrors, I found a solution. Home Depot had the overal best item to use and even the best price. The acrylic mirror met nearly all my design and performance needs. First, it is extremely flexable and easily followed my parabolic curve. Also, it is tolerant to reasonable high temperatures, as I found when a part of my wooden frame caught on fire and hot ashes fell on the mirror. To my surprise, hardly any damage occured beyond a slight dimple where the chips fell. The reflectivity was another key concern and the acrylic mirror performs just fine. Although glass mirrors are technically more reflective than arylic types, they are twice as heavy, thus the acrylic mirror product a better choice for me. After extended use outside the mirror does get dusty, but it is easy to clean if extreme care is used. First I air blow it and then I use a very soft cloth to gently wipe it down. The acrylic surface is very sensitive to scratching, even one particle of sand rubbed with a cloth can scratch it, thus my explaining my cleaning method. Deeper scratches may be removed with special plastic cleaning and polishing chemicals although I have not tried them yet. I also needed an exact 24 inch width. I was afraid based on other customers that the advertised dimensions would be too short, but I was pleasantly rewarded when it arrived and it was dead-on the correct advertised diemensions. My design required using 2 pieces that needed cutting. I cut it to size with a jigsaw. It cuts very easily. And finally, the product description strongly advised use indoors and against outdoor use. But, for me it has faired perfectly outdoors for my intermittant use (no rain exposure) and even in the high humidity we have here. In summary, I have brutally put this acrylic mirror to the test, with severe bending/warping, high temperatures, high humidity, splashes of water from the cooking pot and cutting of pieces and it performs very well. I like this product and recommend its use in the solar energy markets. See photos of my prototype solar grill using the acrylic mirror product from Home Depot, where I am cooking up a large skillet of food.

The acrylic mirror was not packaged well for such a fragile item. A large piece of one corner was broken, and I returned it for a refund.

It is very reflective. However, it looks like a fun-house, I feel dizzy when I look at it as walking.. It may be very good for some purposes but not for me as I use it as a mirror. I think it might be better with small size or installing a frame to prevent bending. Free shipping online so it is a good deal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KS Great mirror for my RV
Bought this mirror to dress up a wall in my Travel Trailer to make the small living space appear larger.
Needed a product that would not break and shatter specially during travel.
This acrylic mirror was the perfect size and very easy to mount. I used automotive mounting tape that is sticky on both sides and mounted the mirror directly to a relatively flat wall.
Extremely happy with the result!!
There is some very minor distortion in the mirror image, which actually adds some character and pleasontness to the interior of the camper.
Not having to ever worry about shattering of glass is priceless!

It is a little fun-housey but for the price a great deal. When mounting it to the wall you may want to be prepared to have all 4 sides secure because it bends very easily. I secured the top and bottom and then put double backed tape behind the mirror. Great as a practice dance mirror. Not great if you don't want yourself to looks slightly warped.
