Rated 3 out of 5 by FannyPrice Double cellular shades
Arrived quickly and in good condition. I bought three for a bank of windows in an alcove.
Not at all easy to install. I was expecting them to be like my oldies, which had sturdy metal headrails and sturdy box-shaped endcap brackets with a flip-out door to secure the shade. But, no, the new ones have a non-rigid plastic headrail and funky, flexible L-brackets. I had to drill new holes in my window frames for these crazy little brackets. Then, the instructions say to press the headrail up and back into the brackets. It was difficult to achieve a 'snap' lock because both the headrail and bracket are so malleable. Some never snapped. I've no idea if they're up there for good, or not. I suspect at least one is not, as it goes crooked occasionally.
In addition, once they were up and filtering daylight, it became apparent that the shades are three different colors. By luck, I put the medium tone in the middle, so no one else has noticed and it doesn't bother me unless it's daytime and I think about it. Ha. What I mean is: it does bother me, but it's too late now...
Bottom line, these just don't seem to be of the quality that JCP window coverings used to be. However, the price was good and they do seem energy-efficient. I suppose, since I evidently must have fairly low expectations, these can still be recommended.

Purchased these to protect kitchen cabinets from bright sunlight. I love the fact that they are so easy to lower when the sun is too bright and raise when sun is not so bright. Also insulate well against winter cold. Easy to install. I would highly recommend these blinds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bmst Great value
We are very happy with these shades for the price. Of course we got them on sale. They arrived quickly and installed easily. The shades are well constructed and pull up and down smoothly and evenly. They do lack some niceties of more expensive shades such as the small handles to put on the shade bottoms, making it easier to pull up and down. The most challenging thing was to find a store with color swatches to help us make our choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ms1999 I love them
Very easy to install. I use one screw per bracket instead of the 2 and it is very sturdy. Pretty color. Fits nicely in the window. I put in 6 of them and feel they keep the cold out.

I have been slowly replacing my old wooden blinds with the cellular shade. They are perfect for keeping the cold out (Northern Michigan) but during the day I can push them up and away to get the most sun light when it comes around. I think they are a great value and they are easy to install, and insulate well.
