Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Will Attractive Window Blinds That Look Like Real Wood
These window blinds are very attractive and even though they are made of vinyl, they look like real wood. They are pretty easy to install yourself and can be done in 15-30 minutes depending on your expertise and the tools you have. I didn't use a power drill, so it took a little longer to screw the brackets in the window frame. They are a really good value for the money. My only minor complaint is that a few of the blinds are slightly bent, but is only noticeable when you look really close and I'm sure that it isn't representative of the product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bobafett great product
I ordered 3 of these for my living room, the blinds are a bit flimsy then I expected and I hope they do not warp in the summertime. Overall they look great. These weighted a bit more than expected so I added extra screws to support their daily use. My only complaint was the blind valance clips were difficult to put on, I had to force them to a point where it felt like they could break. I will be ordering more soon.

I loved the product. One set of blinds was missing the hardware. I still have not been able to obtain the missing set of hardware. I have contacted Home Depot as well as the factory. I have eight blinds installed but am still waiting on the hardware for the ninth set.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Markbacktobeingsane Shortening length impossible
I spent 3 hours trying to shorten length and finally threw them in trash. Slats are not slotted in middle like old slots where only one string requires being knotted. These blinds have a very small hole on edge of slat that a very tiny loop goes through then larger string goes through loop. You also have two strings to be knotted on latter rungs which is a total of six instead of three like old style. Then there's this string adjustment pull knob that comes apart to adjust the strings. Pull it apart and things will become even worst then what you have already probably have failed at. Finally threw them in trash and went and found old style at Lowes. Took about 30 minutes to adjust length and also cut ends of last six slats for width adjustment for tile backsplash allowance and then install. So much easier than newer technology.

These blinds re not mohagany at all. I think mahogany is a deep brown . These are more teak - looking in color. They still look ok in the space though

Great product. Didn't take too long to install and looks great. Not very obvious that they're not real wood and brings a nice, sophisticated look to the room. Matches espresso colored furniture, too!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JHCNY Costs more than better products
1. The blind in full open position takes up more space at the top of the window than any other venetian blind I've seen.
2. The tilt is adjusted by a cord instead of a rod, and it functions extremely poorly. Tilt only goes in one direction, it does not go to full vertical, and some of the slats need to be adjusted by hand.
3. One of the valences arrived scuffed.
4. The directions say to attach the valence before mounting the headrail. I thought this was unusual, but I figured, they know their own product, and I followed the directions. DO NOT DO THIS. The valence slides around as you lift the blind; the mounting clips need to be maneuvered around the valence; and the blind is inordinately heavy for faux-wood. Negotiating those unneeded challenges ended with me dropping the blind, and now there's an unsightly gash in the bottom of the blind. When installing, ignore the directions and attach the valence last like a normal person.
Or better yet, don't buy this product at all. The Home Decorators brand is a far superior product, and slightly less expensive to boot.
