Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LimpanderGuy I liked them enough that this is my second set
This is my second set of these screens. The first was wiped out by large fierce hail after quite a few years of use, but I liked them enough to buy them again. The first set had the fiberglass screens covering them. I need the screen cover because of an abundance of pine needles from my trees. I used my own modification of the screens added to the basic plastic cover part. I covered it with aluminum wire screen attached by clear caulk at the leading and trailing edge. It gives me less of a place at the leading edge to trap some of the leaves and pine needles than the way the factory does it and I hope the screen wire stays in place better than the fiberglass. If they ever redesign this part, I'd recommend that the top of the leading edge be flush with the rest, I think that would be an even better part, but it is a good part as is. I haven't found any cover that doesn't have some wash over.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kila Almost Perfect
Pros: Excellent value, espeicially compared to the far more expensive gutter guards. The quality is acceptable, time will tell once our rain season starts again.
Cons: Why oh why oh why do they just not manufacture these with the ** notch already cut into the guard?? ** I just cannot understand that, I did not have a tin snip so was forced to use my household scissors to cut the notch, which the scissors broke from pressing the handle so hard to cut thru the thick end. If it were not for that these guards would have been put up in a fraction of the time needed. They also do not snap on as easy as it sounded so I had to place it on the gutter on the roof, then make a circle around the house on a ladder snapping it on from the other direction. Another good idea would have been to make dedicated corner cuts, another huge time saver.
Overall: These are a value for the cost, I have 200 feet of gutters, needed about 66, bought 70 to be safe, but still ran short by 5, so you might wish to consider purchasing about ten more than estimated to compensate for corners, irregular cuts, accidental breakage, etc. The only thing preventing me from giving this five stars is having to cut the notch for the overlap, that's where all the work comes in. Took me four hours from start to stop using my scissors with most time coming from cutting notches.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 EXCELLENT product!
I'm a 67 year old woman and I installed these 2 years ago on my house from the roof top (good enough slope to feel safe).
We have lots of trees and the fall leaves were no problem. The debris the trees drop in the spring was another matter ... too much and too fine to blow off with the wind, so I blew it off easily with our leaf blower. Absolutely NO debris got through to the gutters.
I can't imagine any other gutter protection doing a better job (and we had some mighty aggressive salesmen trying to convince us otherwise to buy their very expensive systems).
Excellent value; Excellent performance.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bumps A good buy
Just hard to cover the corners. Have to cut and overlap pieces, which are not real strong.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SamAtHome White Vinyl Snap In Gutter Guard
I have had these Vinyl Snap In Gutter Guards installed for the past five years and recently got rid of them. Though they worked better than not having them, this model had trouble with pine needles and leaf stems. The holes in the grid appear to be too large and trap pine needles. Despite this draw back, they did keep the gutters flowing year 'round and gutter maintance was reduced significantly. When you think of the linear cost and reduced gutter maintanace, these are still a good deal.
I replaced the Vinyl Snap In Gutter Guards with the next level up that features a mesh filter over the grid.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JewelofDenial Not What I Needed
The product is good for the item it is supposed to be used for but the Home Depot website does not tell you that this guard is used only with the metal gutters. You view a bunch of similar products with high and low prices but have no clue why there is such a difference. It would be helpful to have the info in the description.
