Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Okflip Are just the product I wanted for my finished rooms
I will mention be sure to remove the header pieces that are apparently installed from MFG so to assist the cutting to size process because I have no idea otherwise what there pieces are installed for. You will not be able to install them with out removing each piece. The blinds are the answer for my situation and I like to sleep in in AM and stay up late and so the room darkening shades are the answer for me. I have them in all bedrooms now and regular (non-darkening) in kitchen, living room and both bathrooms. I find them easy to install and very functional and I find the no strings attached (play of words) wonderful and looks classy. They function smooth and without problems or issues every time. I have a triple double hung set of windows in living room and they are ganged and cut to size and look elegant no matter closed or opened, from outside or inside. Add to the face they are also "R" valued and keep cold out or help and also helps keep house cool in summer with A/C operating.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ash No better than the $5 version
For the cost, I expected these to filter a lot more light than they do. I couldn't see a difference in light levels between a room with the "room darkening" blinds, and a separate room where I put up the "light filtering" blinds. Save yourself a few bucks and buy the cheap ones.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RhythmRider Good blinds with poor quality cutting service
These blinds are easy to install. They are easy to operate and the feature that pulls all of the strings together is nice. The quality of the blind is very good for a discount priced mini blind.
Once one has cut the blind length to size there is sometimes insufficient weight in the bottom bar of the blind to allow the blind to smoothly lower without binding. If the bottom bar were heavier or weighted, this would resolve this issue.
The cutting service for these blinds when ordered over the internet is deplorable. The blinds arrived properly cut to the correct size, but the blinds looked like they had been cut by an inexperienced teenage kid on his first job that really could not care about what he was doing.
The same blinds cut in the home depot store (while I was watching the cutter) were very good. I highly recommend getting your blinds cut in the store. The convenience of mail order is not worth the inconvenience of having to return them when done wrong. The cutter in the store actually cut the first blind incorrectly but this was instantly fixed and the quality of the cut was good. I walked away a happy customer.
See pictures of poorly cut mail order blinds.
I will never order these blinds over the internet again but would happily still buy in the store.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NJAngusFarmer Good, inexpensive mini blinds
These blinds are 'cut-to-size'. The end cuts are a bit ragged, but not noticeable once they are hung up (inside mount). The associate recommended vinyl over metal, since they are primarily to help keep a room cool that gets morning sun; appreciated the guidance. I didn't try shortening the blinds, although they provide instructions. The price is good; considerably less than Blinds To Go, for example. The controls interfere a bit with the top one or two slats, but not terribly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ike Bang for your Buck
I needed an attractive window treatment for my house before I put it up for sale. This product was a low cost option and did the trick. Good bang for your buck. The mini blind showed upon time and was relatively easy to install. I use it for my kitchen and it darkens the room well enough during the day but of course you still know if the sun is out.

Needed a product for outside Lanai door which would afford me privacy.
This product accomplished exactly what I was trying to achieve.
