Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jack Good vertical blinds
This vertical blind seems to be better than other brands in it's price range. The mechanism works more smoothly as well. Any owner of vertical blinds knows full well that opening and closing them, both sliding horizontally and turning the slats, must be done slowly to avoid breaking the plastic gearing & sliders, which all of them use. The first thing I did after installing mine was use silicone grease on the sliding rails and a silicone liquid on the gears and shaft to minimize friction. Having damaged several ones thru impatience, doing this & being careful will help extend he blind's service life as well as reduce the owner's blood pressure!

These blinds are incredible. The installation was really easy, took me about 10 minutes per set (I bought two sets for some 8' patio doors). They look great, and work great. And honestly, they look really expensive. I cannot see a reason to buy anything more expensive. These mount with (4) metal "L" shaped brackets that screw into the wall, the track snaps into the brackets, then all the vertical vanes snap into the track, and lastly, the valence snaps onto the top of the track. They don't seem flimsy at all, everything is very stout and feels of high quality. I'd highly recommend these, and they are such a deal !!! Thanks HOME DEPOT !!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disgusted Very flimsy, break easily.
As the adage says: "You get what you pay for!". These are fine if you are going to have them drawn across the window and NEVER touch them again. If you slide them back and forth a few times or twist the wand to change their angle they are going to break. I guarantee it. I have them in a rental and just replaced them for the second time in 6 months. This time I saved my receipt and they are going back for a refund. One is already broken after 2 weeks.

These blinds hung up easily and look great. Unfortunately the mechanism does not work. The slats are not snagging on any wall or floor but keep falling out, despite the fact they have been installed on the 2nd ledge. What is worse though is that on the 2nd day ( opened my patio door once today ) they are not working properly any longer - they neither open nor close all the way. Total piece of junk that is going back to Home Depot.

In my previous review I had mentioned that some of the slats would fall out when I opened or closed the blinds, It was due to operator error - when you snap the blinds in, there's two
ledges in the hanging mechanism. They will snap on the first (lower) ledge, but you have to make sure and push them up until they snap onto the second (higher) ledge. If you look at the hanging mechanism you'll see what I mean. Once I made sure they were all on the second ledge the problem went away. Since I've done that I've grown to really like them. They look nice and are very functional.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by johnr ease of installation and use plus the beauty of the product
the down side is the installation of the valance i.e. I was installing two different vertical blinds
one had clear plastic pieces to hang the valance and the other had ivory colored attaching pieces----by
far the ivory were far easier to use

I can't say enough about these blinds! I was going to buy the more expensive one's since I wanted a certain look in my home. Once I priced all the different blinds and knew how many I had to buy, I decided on these blinds. WHAT A GREAT SELECTION I made!! These blinds are just as good as the higher priced vertical blinds, maybe even better. The look great inside my house, and have them in every room now. They work and look great. I would highly reccommend over the higher priced blinds, you'll get the same functions and benefits from these blinds. Good buy and won't break the bank!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Blinds Junk please dont waste your time
Pros: easy to install and looks great
Cons: they don't work. does not turn to open nor do they retreat to one side.
I bought two sets in the same day. Returned the first set because the blinds would not open properly. Exchanged them and the second one would not open at all. If you want static blind buy these. If you ever want to open them please buy a better quality set.
These are an ABSOLUTE JUNK!
