Overall the gutters were easy to install. And with a little plastic spray paint they will blend in better on houses that dont have white trim. However, the end caps don't fit on the drop outlet, so you cant just end with it, you have to install gutters on the both sides and that means using more pieces. It also means that if your banisters, that you are attaching the down spout to happen to be at the end of the building, you have to figure out a way to get them attached because you wont be able to reach them.

Over a lifietime I've never been able to get aluminum gutters to seal tightly...maybe when first installed, but after a year (or less) leaks appear. Butyl sealers work ... sort of ... but are expensive, time consuming and messy. The vinyl system costs more to begin, but the neoprene sealing beads, and 'clamp joints' work.
These DROPS have good design - slip-joints to accommodate thermal expansion.
These do not 'dent' like aluminum.
These are easy to clean (exteriors), though harder to paint.
Seems like the mounting hardware is overpriced.
Made in CANADA, would prefer made in USA.
Only failure I had was ICE buildup - combined with my installation with too few attachment points.

The 2x3 end cap does not fit directly on the end of K-style drop outlet. The M0506 drop outlet is too wide and has hooks that interfere with attempts to snap on the two-piece M0608 joiner union onto the drop outlet. This drop outlet does slip on and slide over the 2X3 K-style gutter. But as stated above the 2x3 gutter's end cap will not close off the down-hill end of the drop outlet. So, yes as other writers have contributed, slide the drop outlet over the planned down-hill end of the gutter's length and then use a marker to plan to cut a hole in the gutter's bottom at the point which is aligned a little "up hill and off set" of the actual drop outlet's water exit hole. By doing this you can then slide the end cap over the very end of the actual gutter extending out past the drop outlet's length. It is the only way to get everything to fit together correctly.

Easy to work with, easier than the metal counterpart to work with.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KorosionWarrior07 Easy to install but you need to do it correctly
It was fairly easy to install, especially since the gutters themselves don't need to be perfect and one end is secured once you slide it into the drop outlet. From there you can secure the hanger on the other end and the rest is super easy. The only thing is you don't really get install guidelines and I have to reposition the gutter now because water is getting behind the gutter rather than in it. The worst part was unrelated to this drop outlet, cutting somewhat flimsy vinyl gutters, pretty awkward to cut by hand.

The inside and outside corners are manufactured elsewhere. So they don't fit this product- AT ALL. I even went back to HD and asked the guys working there to show me how to make them fit, and they said "uhhh...these are simply unworkable. The accessories to these gutter systems are mis-manufactured and they do not work". So I thought it ended there. I terminated the gutters instead of going around the corner. I thought that would help. The rest of the accessories fit fine. Until I was hanging the downspouts. If you watch the video, the downspout clips clip snugly onto the downspout in order to hold it in place. HA! Yeah, the downspout clips are 2" too wide!!!! These are the "manufacturer's parts". Geez. What a total waste of my life. I have spent more time going to and from HD than I have hanging gutters. Should have just hired someone to come out and install aluminum gutters and been done with it.
