Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PM Droopy slats, broken cord, to heavy to pull open - See photos
These blinds were just installed a week ago, and the first time I pulled the drawstring to lift the blinds the center lift cord broke. Soon thereafter the plastic cord connector snapped open. The slats are so heavy and the string support so inadequate that the slats droop. In addition, another set of blinds that came with this order were cut 1/2 inch too narrow, even though the correct size that I had ordered was written on the outside of the box. My contractor who was installing them had to struggle with yet another set of blinds for more than a half hour because the tilt gear in the top headrail had been inserted in the wrong slot and the blinds wouldn't open correctly. Even though he managed to pop it into the right slot, the top blind slat remains unaligned with the rest of the blinds because the string loop around the slat that keeps it level is looser on one end and so that end is lower. The size and weight of these larger blinds (59.5x72) are simply too heavy for their construction. The slats droop from weight, and when you pull the cord to raise them its like pulling them up through wet cement. I was afraid that the weight and the amount of strength it took to pull the cord would bend the mounting brackets or pull them away from the wall. I will be returning the entire set of 5 blinds that I ordered. I have to say that they looked pretty nice when they were first installed, until I actually tried to use them. :) I really appreciated the kind and professional service of the Home Depot onlline staff when I called to ask about returns.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wkendremodler Recommend these Faux wood Blind
Ordered thesse for the look and privacy from the neighbors. They were easy to install and fit prefect like stated on the package.
They were a little tough to first unlock them. But work wonderful. This is my third house I've used them in and would recommend them to anyone wanting a nice look from inside and outside.
I did the brown faux blind with white trim. I really like the look with my wooden windows.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by twep Poor design
When we bought our new home we ordered (6) sets of these blinds. They look great but have a design flaw. The hook at the top of the blinds that the rod attaches to, to open and close the blinds is so thin that (2) of the (6) blinds broke within the first 30 days! The small piece of metal the rod used to open and close them is a thin piece of what appears to be brass. There is a hole drilled in the thin piece of metal, making it even more fragile, due to how close the hole comes to the edge of the metal.
I would recommend these blinds if not for that flaw. I was faced with, either throwing the blinds away and ordering new ones or... buy a 2' piece of copper pipe from the pluming section, mashing one end of the pipe so it would fit over the stub where the rod used to attach. I went with option number 2. I just place the pipe under the blinds, at the bottom and use it to open and close the blinds. It works but I would have preferred having blinds that I don't have to custom-engineer a way of opening and closing them.

I was going to re-imagine this product so it was important to me to have a product that would stand up to my vision. It was easy to change the length and I only needed simple tools to accomplish that. I changed this white Venetian blind into a colorful roman shade.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cmtanner Love these blinds!
I bought these blinds a quick fix for a window in the front of our house that we didn't have curtains for when we first moved in. It was eventually going to be an office but for the first few months it was basically just storage, but you could see directly into the master bedroom from that window in the front of the house. I ordered these blinds because they were a great price and looked nice enough from the website. They were SUPER easy to install, and they looked amazing. I've now ordered them for our master bedroom windows and guest bedroom windows as well. These are a really amazing value for the cost and quality of this product. Will be buying again (and already have!)
