Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rocker123 Absolute Garbage
Absolute garbage. Please dont waste your time, effort and money on this. I bought few of these and ended up returning all except 2 which I already applied. All the people who had been saying just follow the directions and it will work perfectly, let me ask you this how hard should it be to apply a film like this. It took more than 40 mins to apply this and the worst part was when I took it off since it didnt apply correctly, it left glue on my windows and literally destroyed them. I had to spent another hour to rub off the glue from the windows. So again, dont waste your time, spend a little more money and buy Artscape windows film. They work with water and install flawlesly

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JustMe Absolutely horrible product.
Absolutely horrible product. Instruction sheet was not in box as indicated. Instructions printed on box were not complete. Very difficult to get liner separated from film. No indication as to whether the sticky surface was part of the film (which would be frosted) or if it was part of the liner (which would make the film clear). Clear film does not provide privacy, so will have to assume the frosted layer was the film that was supposed to go on the window, sticky side against the window. Have to use the Gila application solution or a substitute I found on the web of 1/4 teaspoon of baby shampoo mixed with a quart of water in a spray bottle.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer Provides the BATHROOM PRIVACY we need...
At the new house the bathroom has two exit doors one of which had a glass window. This was a GREAT SOLUTION because the alternative was to remove the glass window and install wood to replace it.
I cut and installed FROSTED PRIVACY WINDOW FILM and it provides the PRIVACY we desire. I purchased the spray solution that is recommended and it worked fine. It was located next to the in-store display. After installation, the window looks like frosted glass. The only drawback was that I did not have a squeegee to get the little bubbles out and I am okay with that because it sort of looks like a design in the glass. I will buy more of this product for my basement windows and for a second bathroom window.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chuck Purchased for Halloween
I know this product is used to create "privacy" but I purchased this window film for Halloween. I used it on my glass front door to create a screen to project my digital Halloween decorations onto the door. It works great. Place the film on your door or window then use a video projector and shine it on the door. Your video will be projected on the door and look awesome. The first night I had 20 kids sitting outside watching the Halloween videos. This film & trick can It can be used on windows as well. Happy Halloween !

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HandyPerson This product should NEVER be sold on the consumer (or any!) market
I am beyond surprised that this product is even allowed to be sold on the consumer market. It is absolutely terrible in every consideration imaginable. The instructions on the box not even nearly prepare you for what lies ahead of you in trying to install this disaster, and I am truly a handy person (i.e. build my own stained glass windows, etc..) Please DO NOT buy this product and if you bought it, run to the store to get a full refund. It is a complete waste of your money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RH Works Well, a bit tricky to apply!
The product works very well and accomplished what we wanted - frosted lower window pane in our bathroom. I would caution people that it's a bit tricky applying the product. It's REALLY important to apply lots of the solution to the window and the film, otherwise it will stick and could potentially tear or crease. I also found that you can water-down the solution to avoid buying more of it. Not completely sure you need to purchase the solution they sell to go with this product. It's much easier if you have two people to hold the film. I've used this product several times over the years and learned that lesson the hard way! If you're doing a single window pane, one person can do it just fine - but still requires patience - tale your time. And if it sticks to the window - wet it again until you can loosen it to realign. And Water seems to work pretty well if you run out of the solution.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Qadr pain to put on
Eventually accepted my limitations and gave up trying to apply to a reception sliding window after the film kept wrinkling when trying to remove air bubbles.
Even used the kit that came seperately.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveW No more peeping toms into the bathroom!
My wife asked me to put up something on the bathroom windows to prevent someone from looking into the bathroom when she gets out of the shower. Previously, we had paper blinds which served this purpose, but also were very annoying to collapse down to allow the bathroom windows to be opened for fresh air. Also the paper blinds would occasionally get torn or discolored from the sunlight and moisture in the air.
Installing this frosted film on the windows was a fairly straightforward process involving thoroughly cleanining the windows before application, cutting the film to slightly larger than the window size, spray on the applicator solution, peel film backer away and apply film to window. Then trim film to window using the cutting tool in the kit (sold separately) and squeegee film to ensure no bubbles and consistent contact with window.
The film can be removed and reapplied within 24 hours if needed, but I did not have to do this on either of my bathroom windows.
