Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by shayfan It was pretty easy.
Attractive and easy to install. Making it shorter involved a trip back to the store to look at the diaplay.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BBinLA Some tips for adjusting the length of this blind
Adjusting the length of these blinds is harder than they say in the store, but here's some tips. First, drill out the holes with about a 5/32 drill bit. This will make it possible to thread the strings back in. Be aware that you have to get the string lengths just right to get the bottom piece level left to right and front to back. Don't cut the strings until you're sure the bottom piece is level when you raise the shade; if you cut them too short you'll ruin the shade. I'm still not sure how to get the pull strings all even, so on all but one of my shades one or two of them bow out. Also, rather than waste a lot of time trying to get all the lengths to match on the "string ladders" that hold the slats in place, just get it to where the shade works and leave it - it doesn't look too bad. Figure on at least 40 minutes per shade for the process, and an hour for the longer shades. Make sure the wife and kids are out of the house so they don't get frightened when you start yelling in frustration. And don't take your frustration out on the poor Home Depot employees - they're not the ones who decided to stock this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ef54 The product was easy to install and works as expected.
I found the blinds easy to install. Due to length, two people were required for the installation. Installing the cover was difficult due to the force required to attach the clips.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by zixy Great Product. Same will cost at least 5 times more from a custom blind company
Have been shopping around for blinds for few months. The average cost to cover fours windows ranged from $800 - $2000. Could not afford it and starting shopping more. Saw blinds in home depot store and tried on window. Looked beautiful. Remaining I ordered online with exact sizes.
Quick delivery and easy install. Key is having exact measurements (width). Length can be adjusted easily.
I put these blinds up in my living room and it completely changed the ambience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aussiegirl Beautiful addition to any room.
Was very excited to get these wood blinds. I was a little skeptical about the quality, but my fears where set aside when I received them. I was replacing some old white faux wood blinds that had seen better days, and cost more than these real wood ones. My hubby put them up in no time at all and they look beautiful. They are also easy to raise and to open (no rod to turn they open with pull cords). The color is warm and looks better that the picture on line. All in all I would recommend these blinds to anyone who want's to add a little class to their home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handypete Careful Installing
I like the blinds and I will definitely buy more but just be careful installing them so that they don't come apart on you. The old blinds I bought from Home Depot years back have a string running through the center of each louvre and that keeps them together- it also makes shortening them harder. These new ones only have a string on the outsides that grab a little groove and if you tilt one side up or if you are not careful then many slates will come out and you will have to spend some extra time getting it all back together.
Another advantage to the new system is that it is a piece of cake to replace slates at any height. So save your extras incase one gets damaged. The dog and the person that cleans them are always to blame for this but it is well worth keeping them both around.
