Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dissappointed Dissappointed in Sound Proofing Claims
The panels and posts arrived in good condition. Installed they look really nice, however, the main reason I ordered this particular type of fence was for the soundproofing claims. I live on a noisy main road and was hoping that they would provide better sound reduction. I didn't notice much difference at all. For the privacy and look of the fence, I would recommend this to someone that has minimal noise issues. If sound reduction is your main reason for purchasing this, I would not suggest it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by michpaw Beautiful fence!
This fence is replacing the decorative cinder block privacy wall between my neighbors house and mine. I absolutely could not be more thrilled with the new wall! It looks just fantastic and seems very sturdy. I did not install it myself, a friend did so, but he had no complaints about installation. I would recommend this product 100%! It's certainly not cheap, but then I didn't want something that looked cheap, either. It looks very classy and classic.

The finished product brings a functional esthetic to our back yard. We needed privacy and help with limiting the noise of a neighbor's pool filter, this product fits the bill nicely.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SWFLRedneck This is a good-looking fence.
This is not an inexpensive fence. I spent about $7500 to replace that awful wooden fence in the backyard. That being said, I shouldn't have to worry about this sucker for the length of the 25 year guarantee (at that point, I won't care).
I have never installed a fence before, but by watching the mfgr's videos and only doing a few posts at a time (generally before breakfast - it gets hot here in Florida) - it turned out really well. If you use a string to keep things in line and a level to make sure the post points straight up, and you should be OK. For some reason, the post level that I bought for the job didn't work very well - I think that the steel-reinforced foam posts vary a little in spots. A regular 24" level got the job done.
I used between two and three bags of concrete in each hand-dug hole, mixing it in a wheelbarrow first (we have hurricanes occasionally) and I feel confident that this fence should hold together.
Everyone that has seen it compliments me on the looks. The gates are stupid expensive (I bought three of them), but they're rugged and have plenty of adjustment.
I also like that you can adjust the panel height if necessary after the posts are in. We had to do that on a couple of panels. All in all, if you're careful when you assemble it, you should have a beautiful fence that'll last a long time.

Actually measures 6' tall by 5'10" wide.
Sturdy, well made, same on both sides, looks exactly as I expected.

Very easy to assemble, very low maintenance. It looks beautiful and very private, I purchased several last year for the patio behind my house. I loved it so much I purchased several more for my other patio. I wouldn't trade it for nothing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KennyG Ecostone panels, good but some thin spots
I really like the look of these panels. it is something different you don't usually see. they are easy to cut if needed. you will need a metal cutting saw/tool to cut down the supports. my only issue with these panels is i wish they were just a little bit thicker. looking at them with the sun behind them, i can see some thin spots in the panels. once you have your posts set, the panels drop in pretty fast with a helper. i put in 12 panels in less than 1 hour. make sure you read the instructions thoroughly and you won't have any trouble. one of my panels arrived without the steel supports. home depot contacted simtek and had them in a few days.
