The look and quality of the glass blocks are great. My only concern is the packaging done by manufacturer. Every box I received had several blocks with significant chips of glass broken off. Most were so severe that the damaged blocks could not be used. Home Depot is great about taking back boxes with broken blocks, but be sure to order plenty of extras if you want to keep your project on schedule. Amazing to me that an established company like Pittsburg Corning hasn't figured out a way to pack the glass to keep it from being broken in transit.

We like the design, they were all very uniform in quality, they arrived safely and were packaged securely.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PassatDoc Superb product
Recently replaced all the house windows with new double pane windows (though Home Depot, using Simonton vinyl windows). However, a 60" H x 8" W clerestory window next to the front door was too narrow for Simonton to fabricate a replacement. The salesman recommended conversion of this window to glass block.
8" W block would have required cutting into the wall, but 6" W could be installed right into the existing frame after removal of original glass and grid bars. Since the window frame was 4" deep, I had to use a 6 x 6 x 4 block, which is available in only two designs, this one and a second one with a wavy pattern. 6 x 6 x 3 blocks, while offering more design choices, would not have been flush with the wall on the inside. I had to buy a dozen blocks, when only ten were needed, but better to have matching spares if something breaks during shipping or installation.
A handyman did this job and it looks great.Shipping was superb: FREE, all blocks securely packed and all of them arrived intact. Very pleased with this purchase.
