Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DRVMN Easy Installation, Not so easy to shorten . . .
I installed three sets of these mini blinds. Each set installed quite easily but shortening the blinds was extremely time consuming and sometimes frustrating. The unused slats remove very easy. Cutting the excess cord and putting the bottom piece back together is where I spent the majority of my time. Threading the string through the holes on the bottom piece was tricky. I finally took a drill bit and cleaned the burrs out of each hole and that made the job easier. I am a perfectionist so I spent extra time making sure all of the cords were the same length and that everything pulled evenly. I probably spent two hours on each set but it was worth it in the end.

Installed nine blinds where many of the screw heads twisted off even with pre-drilled holes. HIGHLY recommend buying replacement screws before running into a major headache.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AJBrown Tough top installation within window frame
We have the previous versions of these shades and love them. These new ones have different mounting brackets with a flange that swivels upward (the previous ones opened horizontally). This is a problem with top the mounting within the window frame that was necessary for my installation. Even though the brackets are predrilled for mounting flush to the top of a window frame, the flange won't flip up far enough to insert the blinds. It is necessary to insert a spacer between the bracket and the frame to allow clearance for the flange. This spacer is also necessary in order to attach the valences. This issue really should be pointed out in the instructions. Hopefully, the brackets with spacers will hold up.
Other than this inconvenience, the shades are nice looking. However, the slats are thinner than in the previous version and the valence is different.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kimi This product not attached
The blinds are not attached. They are ok if you hang on the inside of the window, But don't move them around. I purchased these because they matched the rest. But they changed the design. I called the company the customer service was not very helpful.
