If you're looking for a fairly inexpensive shutter replacement that will last (I expect) virtually forever, this is the way to go. Obviously, size needs will vary for individual applications...so assuming you've found the size you need, let me comment on the product itself:
I purchased the 'paintable' version for two main reasons: (1) I really didn't want the shutters to look like plastic...so painting them gives them the look of wood (matching the remaining shutters on my house), and (2) the 'white' version simply wasn't white enough to match my other shutters. (Unless you're replacing ALL your shutters, the 'paintable' version is the way you'll want to go for 'color matching' purposes...let alone if you should wish to change colors in the future.)
These are light and almost 'cheap' looking out of the package, so be ready for this feeling if you decide to purchase these. That said, they do the job very well. The grain molded into the plastic makes them indistinguishable from real wood and, once painted, I would challenge anyone to tell the difference between these and a real wood shutter just by looking at them. Plus, because of the plastic material used, the slats won't be warping over time so they should continue to look good for a long, long time.
One caution: You'll have to be a little creative and handy in determining how to fasten these to your house. It's fairly easy to figure out an alternative solution to the fasteners provided (which are plastic and appear to me like they will not hold well in a storm, despite requiring drilling of several fairly large holes into the house). I personally wouldn't trust the large plastic 'screws' that come with the units. But again, determining an alternative fastening method for your personal needs isn't all that difficult.
My own need was to replace a single pair of old wood shutters that were falling apart. Without a doubt, I will be purchasing these for the rest of my house (assuming I can get the right sizes) over time as the need arises. I wish they came in sizes wider than 15" (maybe 18-24") but for the most part, these fit the bill.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TrixieC So flimsy!!
These are just awful- I slid them half way out of the box and then immediately slid them back in and returned them. If you want flimsy plastic shutters that look like they are rejects from the lego factory, then these will be your favorite thing. Not at all what I wanted. I will make my own out of wood!

Product is as described. Takes paint well, 1 coat with Bear Paint. Shutters are delicate, need to be cautious with installation, that being said, they look great. Once installed, they are going nowhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nurse37 Makes the house look so much better
My husband and I really needed to add some curb appeal, but even with all the land scaping we put in, the house was still missing something. We went to the Depot and picked these up andinstalled them the same day. I can believe how much nicer the house looks with these on, and the quality is great for the price. It's amazing how a little color can completely change the feel of a house.
