Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BlindInstaller Filters direct sunlight
Summer afternoon sunlight pours into our kitchen right over the north-northwest facing sink, making it difficult to work there from mid-afternoon until sunset. This blind cuts the direct sunlight but still offers plenty of filtered light, enabling use of the kitchen without using the overhead light.
Home Depot cut the blind to size for no charge. If you are installing this inside a window frame, be sure to measure the opening and then subtract a bit (maybe 1/8") so it fits inside the opening. I returned to Home Depot to get it cut a second time (again, no charge). The second cut was the smallest cut their machine would do, and the edge was a little raggedy. In practice it doesn't matter, but try to get the blind cut just once.
Installation was fairly easy, about what is expected for this type of product and my skill level. The included instructions are easy enough to follow.
The blind lifts and lowers easily, by hand. I can open it maybe 3/4 of the way without using a stool or ladder, but that's OK. There's nothing to see that high up anyway.
This is a good blind for our needs: filtered afternoon sunlight, custom-cut to fit, simple installation, easy operation. Good all around.

My husband put these shades up and found that the instructions for mounting them on the brackets were backwards. Once he realized that and reversed them, they went on fine. We need to find the plastic holders on the bottom to lift and lower the shades that come with other similar products.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kmiller145 Look Great - Super Easy to Insall
These shades look terrific and are very easy to install. The ordering was so quick and easy - they fit perfectly - there are great colors and styles to choose from (many 'whites' to choose from too). They were ready a few days ahead of schedule. I can't say enough good things about them. The staff at HD was very helpful, making this a quick and easy purchase. Very satisfied!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BlueOx They solve the problem perfectly
The sun wants to stream through the window at the back of my desk making it impossible to use my computer. I had been thinking that I would have to spend several hundred $ for a remote because the desk blocks access to the window, but I saw this shade in Home Depot and decided to give it a try. Home Depot cut the shade to my size immediately and I did not have to wait to take it home. It was easy enough to install. I can now reach over my desk to raise or lower the shade. No messy cord. It is perfect. perfect. I love it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lissie Great Value for the Price; Easy to Install
I'm so glad I found these window shades! I needed to replace the roller shades in my kids' rooms, and I knew I wanted CORDLESS cellular shades. After looking at JC Penney (SO expensive even on sale) I started searching online, where I found these. Why I love them:
1 - They were very easy to install - just need a drill and a screwdriver. TIP: make sure the shade is facing the right way before trying to snap into the brackets. the front part of the shade will be about 1/4" higher; the back is lower so it can snap into the bracket.
2 - These can be custom cut at the store.
3 - They work with double-hung windows. If you place the brackets out far enough, these will hang straight down (not bowed out), even on double hung windows with a shallow frame.
I highly recommend these shades.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Not bad for price
Product is good for the price. My only complaint is that when they cut them to Desired width, the machine chews the ends up so you can't add the finish pieces to the ends so looks a little tatty up close. For a cheap temporary blind, they work!

Only had these blinds for a week but no complaints. Easy to cut to size on a miter saw, easy to install. Love the easy operation and no cord.
