This panel is not as described. Package says 52 in x 63 in. Panel is actually 41 in x 63 in. Quality is fair. Haven't used it since sizing is wrong.

There were three things I wanted in drapes for my living room - light blocking, ease of opening and closing, and affordability. These fill the bill. I'm very happy with how they do really block out a LOT of light - so much better than our previous ones. The grommet top really makes it easy to open and close the drapes. I did buy a drapery wand to help because I have a large deep piece of furniture in front of the window in the living room and it was awkward to reach. We liked them enough to buy more for my husbands office.
I saw other people commenting that the color is more green than blue. Depending on the light that is on them, they can look like either. But I did find that the image on the sales page is pretty representational of the color - at least with my computer monitor - it's not a true blue nor a green - kind of muted - which suited me perfectly. I have a lot of wood and neutral colors in the room so I wasn't trying to match another room color, and lots of trees and nature to look at outside - so the drape color works well for me.
One slight negative - they come tightly folded in the package and there are a lot of creases. I'm waiting to see if they will "hang out". Others suggested putting them in the dryer for a bit but I haven't bothered to do that yet. When they are open, I don't see them. Overall these drapes do exactly what we wanted for a really affordable price.

We wish we had purchased these years ago. The blackout panels really work to keep out the light. We have a streetlight directly across the street from our bedroom and it has plagued us for over 12 years. We purchased these curtains recently and hung them this weekend (1/28/17) and other than normal light coming in on the outside of the panels and a small amount where they meet, they really do the trick in keeping the light out.
These panels were cheaper than anything else I had been looking at, but the quality turned out to exceed my expectations!
I love the color more and more each day. Plus they are heavy enough to look high class without having to pay the price.
The last selling point was the black out feature which makes the room super dark, so no complaints there!
