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!

We love the way these new blinds look, and we especially love that there are no longer any cords. I only used two screws on each bracket because our windowsill was really hard to get them into. However, I replaced six blinds in less than 2 hours without my husband's help and they are sturdy without all three screws. They move up and down smoothly. We got parchment colored, and just a heads up that they are white on the backside. It works for our house but might not for everyone.
Getting these cut in the store took quite a bit longer than it should have. We waited almost 10 minutes for someone to help us and setting the cutting blade wasn't an exact science. I'm not sure the employee had a lot of experience cutting them, and from the time I picked the blinds up (had to order online to get our color) to when we walked out of the store was a good half hour. Despite that, I'd still get them again.

Very nice cellular shades and fit behind my other shutters, the mounting bracket is very small and was just right to fit as the other brands there brackets are much bigger.
The housing is also smaller than other brands which was another plus for this project.

These blinds were easy to install using only a portable drill/screwdriver. I love the spring-loaded suspension which keeps the blinds at the desired height without using pull cords which are prone to slippage. A nice match for the curtains!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tweety11 Great product and great price
Love my new shades!!! They look great in my sunroom. They were easy to install and color matched perfectly. I did all 7 shades by myself in less than 3 hours. It would have been less time but the first shade took me longer as it took me awhile to figure out I did not have the 2 brackets that screwed into the frame for holding the shades up in alignment. The other 6 went much better after that. Home Depot did a great job in cutting them and shipping them to me! Thank y'all so much!!
