Worked well for building cold frame. Very well packaged to protect acrylic sheet from scratches and cracks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TxNani Shopped around on different websites, but...
Home Depot had the best buy for the best size and the best shipping deal. A couple other places local wanted a minimum of $150 purchase and/or $150 shipping. Oy! No thank you. Home Depot gave us the size we needed at a great price plus shipped to our local store for free! We just purchased a brand new hard wood kitchen table and are owned by a couple of cats. They love to run and play and slide on the kitchen table. This plexi saves the finish and keeps the table looking new. The table is mostly for looks when not in use for holiday meals.
Again, for us it was a great price and the shipping to our local Home Depot was fast, free and convenient.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Porchmakerbill Amazingly Clear
I used this product to make large windows on the gable end of a 3 season porch. The largest was 4' wide x 5' tall. Everyone who looks a the windows is amazed at how clear they are. People don't believe there are windows because its so clear. I've had to stop some from trying to climb up and touch them. Product was a little tricky to cut. At first I tried to score and break a large piece but it didn't work well because I forgot to remove the plastic sheeting from the back side where I scored it. This caused the break to go crooked at one side. Lucklily I was able to salvage the piece. I then went and bought a fine tooth saw blade and cut the remaining pieces with my circular saw. This worked much better. Overall product is great for windows. My only recomendations are (1) have a helper because its tricky moving large pieces up a ladder and securing them in position, and (2) don't remove the plastic protective sheeting until the windows are completely installed and all of your painting is done. I used a razor knife to lightly score the plastic at the edge of the windows and then it peeled right off.

Do not listen to most of the reviews on here. If you have any do-it-yourself type of ability or know-how, this is very easy to work with. I am fairly skilled in woodworking, etc. but have no experience in glass/ plexi-glass cutting. After reading these reviews and much consideration, I ended up going with the Acrylic over the Poly. The price difference was too great. It shipped to the store in a few days and I picked it up with no problems. It was not damaged at all. I was extremely careful with it cutting the first time because most of these reviews talk like it is so easy to break. I cut it with a cordless circular saw with a fine (108 tooth) blade. It cut so smoothly and easy- no chipping, cracking, or melting. After the first cut, I just ran my saw through the other cuts without any hesitation. They all cut with a clean edge and I had no problems, at all. I have come to realize that most people probably did not know what they were doing and did not use common sense when going to cut it. The only complaint, I guess, was that I was hoping the 1/8 thickness would be a little less flimsy, but it was perfectly fine for the windows I made with it. I would definitely buy this again and/or recommend it to anyone. Just use a good blade and some sense.

When I picked up the 4' by 8' sheet of plexiglass it was packed in cardboard.A store employee help me place it in my van. I never looked at the other side of the box,took it home and put it in my garage.that afternoon when I openned the box the back side had forklift marks and one fork had broke thru in two spots,putting gouges on the plexiglass.Customer service said I would have to bring it back and reorder.I was pressed for time on this project,so I had to go to Lowes and spend $28 on a 2'by4' piece.Customer service did not offer any alternative.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 48 in. x 96 in. x 1/8 in. acrylic sheet
The acrylic sheet was in perfect condition and worked beautifully for what I needed it for. Too bad the store couldn't cut it to the size I needed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Garrythehorseman Very good plexi for the money
Glad I went with the 1/8, it is plenty thick and strong enough for cutting and window usage. I used this on my barn and cut custom size windows using circular saw with high tooth count(140) put on backwards. More or less melts the plastic but works well. Sheets come with usual protective coating which stayed in place while cutting. Sheets shipped on pallets as to ensure no chipping or breaking. Even got help putting in my pickup. Very clear, can hardly tell there is a window there.
