Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DBGG SHOULD BE GUTTER GARDEN - PROMOTES WEEDS AND INSECTS
Bought several hundred feet of gutter guard two years ago, worked good for the first year, than started to grow weeds in gutter, contacted Home Depot for 5 year warranty, they told me to contact the manufacturer, no store warranty is honored. I contacted manufacturer talked directly to the Gutter Guard President, he told me there is no warranty for weeds growing in his product, suggested I get a gutter company to clean out gutters yearly to prevent this.from occurring. However weeds cannot be removed from this material because they grow within the mess. This product also promotes insects in gutters, ants love this stuff. I have since paid to have all of it removed. Absolutely terrible product. I am really suprised the major stores still carry this item.

I bought this last fall and it kept leaves out except pine needles. Clogged up with seeds from trees this spring so bad I had to go up and blow it clear with my leaf blower. Wanted it so I did not have to keep going up and cleaning gutters. Not working out very well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Alanthecool1 Creates more problems than it solves
Let me save you the hassle of installing and then taking them out a year or two later. The top surface pores of these eventually ( in 1-2 seasons) plug up with shingle granules and dirt. This then creates an impermeable layer on top of biological material that prevents rainwater from getting through. You either have to take them ALL OUT (a lot of work) and hose them off and bang the dirt out and reinstall or give up on this method. I took all mine out and bought the white vinyl screen guards that are not only easier to install, they don't plug up like these. Please do not waste your time on these. You will be glad you took my advice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SqueegeeSteve This stuff is fantastic - in the right situations
These gutter guards make a ton of sense if you use them in the proper situations. They won't work well to keep the gutters aesthetically clean when the roof is really shallow, though they still do their job pretty well. The EZ style of this will break down in the sun and dry air - if your gutters get a fair amount of sun exposure, or you live in a dry environment, grab the Original or the Pro.
For most homes, these are far superior to the net style guards, and even the helmet style guards. The best guards you'll find are steel micromesh, but they're prohibitively expensive for many people. Gutterstuff is a fantastic, inexpensive solution for the majority of homes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DrewHOU Works well - No big problems
First off I live in Houston. We get more annual rainfall in inches than Seattle. I have these in my backyard where a med/lg oak tree sits. I used to have to clean my covered deck gutters 2-3 times a year. Now I simply spray off the tops once a year. Much better than having to completely clean them out. They arent perfect by any means but for my needs it saves me hours of messy gutter clean up.

These filters might work in light rain, but not in heavy downpours. They don't let water through nearly fast enough. First big storm after I installed them was just like having plugged-up gutters - maybe 1/4 of the water flowed out the downspout, the other 3/4 overflowed. I removed the filters immediately.

A month after installing these, my gutters were overflowing. These quickly get clogged up with leaves and debris so that no water can pass through them at all. Buyer beware!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Allen Piece of mind during a storm
I am very glad that I have these installed in my gutters. I have many tress near my home, and the gutters would clog a couple weeks after cleaning them out. When the gutters were clogged, rain would hit the house in a way that it could come in the basement. These gutter inserts were just one of several changes made to the home to avoid this problem, but it is the first line of defense and has been working like a charm.
Small tree debris can collect on the top of the foam, but so far it hasn't hindered performance. I have a long blower/vac extension to clean that junk up from time to time, but the emergencies during storms are over now.
The installation is very easy. This probably isn't as good as the gutter cover style guards, but it is far more affordable, simple to install, and has been working great.
