Rated 5 out of 5Â by greatUnknown excellent product, excellent shipping
I've purchased this product before in different sizes, but this size was not available at the store. Very happy to see the expanded stock online.
These shades are easy to mount, do an excellent job for privacy [I'm on ground level and they block the most determined peeper], and are very good for room darkening. However, they are not sold as totally room-darkening, and indeed, there is a little light leakage.
My previous experience with this product indicates that it should last for many years.
Note: the older styles could be end-mounted, so they would work in windows where they did not reach the upper sill. These cannot, which made in-the-frame mounting impossible for me [my windows are 80", these are 72"].
However, there was no problem with outside-the-frame mounting. If you go this route, make sure that you have at least 2"-3" extra on each side for both privacy issues and mounting stability.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Karres Finally found the blinds I wanted!
The blinds were easy to hang, and effectively darken the room during the day. They still allow some light between the slats, but they are better than others we tried. A good value when compared with other brands and stores.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Jimmydude These blinds are very difficult to install.
I have installed blinds in a dozen or more homes and many styles and sizes. The installation design on these paricular blinds is horrible. A 2 hour job to install 6 blinds took 4-5 hours. The "clip" that goes on the wall does not easily go onto the blind. I almost destroyed one blind and was very close to returning all of them.

This is actually the second set of aluminum blinds I purchased to replace the same type made of plastic or vinyl that were installed about ten years ago (not by me). Since all the mounting brackets were the same, I just had to snap these into place in the old brackets. The location is our front sun room, that really gets a ton of sunlight. The plastic model did not block out the light nearly as well as these new aluminum blinds. They are a definite improvement, well made, custom fit.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Chrannama Nice blinds.
Blinds were cut to exact size. 1/2 inch is always taken off your width measurement. If you measure 70" then your blind will come 69 1/2", 29 1/2" wide will come 29" wide etc. Was tricky to mount brackets. They have to be mounted out to the front lip of your frame in order to snap them into the bracket. Light weight and better than vinyl and not heavy like metal. Overall we are pleased.
