Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYFORLESS Pretty good solution for covering a french door
I bought this to cover a wood french door. My door does not have the typical moulding around the windows so I had to improvise a bit to install it. Also the unit was about 1.5" too short for my door which I knew when purchasing but is not really a problem. You can't really tell it's too short unless you know to look.
The quality of the unit is good. Not very good. Just good. The surrounding moulding is plastic and kind of flimsy. Once installed it is not too bad though. It does what I wanted it for, privacy and to keep the sun out at certain times of the day.
You can see daylight through the slot that the lever control operates through. I was initially disappointed in that, but have since gotten used to it. For the price, it is an OK solution. A better solution for me was to perhaps buy a new door with the blinds built in.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Diddy Great concept, needs functionality work
The install was fairly easy and took about 20 mins. Can be done with a philips and regular screwdriver for prying. I cheated and used a drill. No screws are on the unti itself, they're on the existing door.
I wanted to replace the entire back door due to not having blinds but the new door with build in blinds was about $375 before install, this option was $128 shipped and I would consider this an easy DIY level.
I did read on reviews that it does stick out by the door handles but I didn't think I would also have that problem. I was wrong,It does stick out a bit farther than I would like and It does obstruct the door handle as opposed to the stock look. It also have a pretty good gap that I could see over time dust getting into and having to remove the entire unit for cleaning.
The biggest issue I have with this product is that when you open and close the door with the blinds down either open or closed the blinds come off the track and the only way to get them back on the track is the peel off the bottom brackets holding the assembly onto the door and then I have to reach my hand in and push each blind back onto the track. It works fine and long as no one ever uses the door. the people living in the house know to raise the blinds but anytime somoene new is over and they use the door it's game over. It's becoming a real nussence. I feel this could have easily been solved if they added another pane of glass so the blinds were truly 100% isolated between two panes of glass. Or maybe increasing the track threshold.
I can live with it covering part of the door handle. I can't live with it coming out of the track and being unusable anyone someone opens and closes the door. Isn't that the point of a door? This one now has special instructions for use. :) Regretfully I think I'm going to have to go back to the original idea of replacing the entire door. I'll add pics of what I'm talking about. So now my $375 door is now a $503 dollar door, without install.
This could be a great product if they re-did the design.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin The blinds installed very easy and fit the existing window in our door properly. However, the blinds are not quite wide enough for the frame and keep slipping out as the door is opened and closed. When they are out of the frame they won't slide open and closed properly. Therefore, I keep having to pull the frame back from the door and push the blinds back into the frame. The blinds should simply be cut wider to fit their frame properly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Connie French Door Make-over
Purchased one to see what I was getting and liked the product so much that I purchased 7 more. They fit our door perfectly. The installation took five minutes. Product arrived in good condition and the price was fair. I had thought about purchasing my doors with blinds built-in but was concerned that if one broke the expensive door would not function. These allow you to access blind if there is a problem. Good snug fit but they do not work with lever door knobs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JG Nice Product but with a Caveat
I am not sure who wrote the install instructions for this product but no way do you put the lower brackets 11.5" from the bottom of the door windows. It is closer to 10"-10.5" (at least for my windows). The items are light and can be easily lifted by most people. Once on the door, the blinds look clean and bright. They replaced old window treatments and make the kitchen that much brighter.
