Home Depot employees were very helpful and material was excellent for my purposes. I cut the lexan sheet with a jigsaw and had no problems.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PeppermintCoffee LEXAN sheet
Lexan sheet was damaged through cardboard sheath covering in two locations during transit. One damaged spot was the size of a half dollar while the other was approximately dime sized. The blemishes were small enough that the product was kept due to urgent need. The sheet was also oversized by 1/4" - 1/2" which necessitated extra cuts (time) to meet desired dimensions. Product cut easily in straight line with hand cutter purchased at Home Depot. The ship to store option saved a ton over alternatives which included large fees to ship direct to destination.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Farmgal Easy to drill and cut
We used four (4x8) sheets as part of a Kitty Kastle that we designed for our barn cats, and found them easy to cut and drill. This stuff is extremely flexible, so, as others have mentioned, it needs to be stabilized for cutting. We did the cutting on our outdoor deck on top of the cardboard in which the sheets were packaged, and, using 8' 2x4 boards beneath the poly, we put one board on either side of our cut-line, and another 4-5 boards next to it for us to kneel on without bending the sheet. Using a plastic cutting blade, it slid through the poly very well, however, it did cause it to weld to the film coating, which required us to use a pocket knife to shave off the resultant flange and release the film. Next time, we'll use a plastic blade that specifies that it doesn't melt the poly.
The clarity of this stuff is like glass, and its strength is admirable. At one point, I accidentally stepped on the corner of the 4" overhang that we'd already screwed to the 2x2 wooden framework for the project's roof, and as my husband gasped in horror, I quickly stepped off and the nearly 90 degree bend snapped right back to straight with nary a crack or crease.
We now plan to use these great sheets to add 4' of additional overhang to our existing 3' of overhang on our deck.

I used this rather than glass in some cabinet doors where I wanted less chance of breakage. It is clear and it is much lighter than glass. The doors turned out great.
As for workability, the 4x8 sheet was cut very easily on the table saw with a plywood blade. I cut a 4x8 sheet of 1/8 inch hardboard sheet (across the 4 foot side) to the dimension of glass length needed and taped both pieces down on the saw table with double sided tape before cutting the Lexan sheet. This provided much needed support for the flimsy Lexan sheet and provided a smooth surface to slide the Lexan over. Worked out perfectly.
NOTE OF CAUTION: I picked up my sheet from Home Depot and it was well wrapped and didn't show any sign of damage, but when I got it home and removed the cardboard there were a number of scratches running lengthwise in my sheet. So it was packaged that way.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DanMan3 very good product
Very easy to cut, unlike regular plastic which cracks and chunks off. I used a fine tooth plywood blade in a power saw, didn't even have to sand the edge after the cut. Product was quite flexible with no indication of wanting to snap or crack, I managed 4X8 sheets by my self without a problem. One thing, it is heavy for being thin.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robert Lexan roof for a pool changing room
We needed an outdoor changing room and solar shower on our pool deck. The two 4x8 Lexan sheets fit the our needs perfectly as a water proof roof that lets the warmth of the sun in but also provides privacy. The shed is not finished in the photo but it shows better the construction methods.
A store associate helped me locate the roofing screws with waterproof rubber washers and the correct silicon sealant to waterproof the edges. I am really happy with the results.
Hint: The screw holes have to be predrilled slightly over size

The Lexan sheets were fully protected on both sides with a easily removable film. The material was easy to drill and mount with pop rivets. We used it to replace a yellowed plastic protecting our church sign. The improvement was dramatic and the lettering is completely protected from weather and vandals.
