by Rebecca Nice shades. Not worth the hassle.
These are a nice quality shade for the price but even ordering them was an ordeal. The mobile site never indicates that you can't enter sizes on mobile so I went all the way through the ordering process twice, thinking the option would be on the next screen. i finally gave up and ordered from my laptop. It would've let me order without sizes if I hadn't been paying attention.
They are cut to the EXACT specs I ordered and the color/quality are nice but they're crimped for some reason, and I can't figure out how to get the crimps out. (See pic) They also arrived rolled too loose to actually roll up and down. I've spent hours adjusting all 6 that I ordered so they even function as normal blinds. They're nice, but probably not worth the hassle. If I can't get these crimps out I'll probably be returning them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by wordydude Not real solid
I bought three. I love the color choices and the fact that they are precut, but they don't seem like they will stand up to a lot of up and down pulling. In fact, the 39" blind broke in terms of the roller. It will not go up and down. The only way to get a replacement is to take it down and bring it to the store if they have one at the store. I don't think they will have one in the color and size I ordered at the store. I am just leaving it down. or rolling it up by hand and keeping it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gail Excellent sales assistance in ordering, correcting, reordering, and receiving my product.
My order was a computerized one that allowed for misinterpreting the order at the factory end. My sales person ordered correctly and when the product came in, for a second time was able to call the company and detect where the fault would be placed, took courage and reordered in a manner that the company watched over the filling of the order and it came in correct the second time. My order reflects Penny's excellent oversight. Thank you, Penny's, for not dropping the ball!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CBeezer "Sweepstakes Entry" These are good, basic roller window shades.
These are basic roller window shades, thick, no frills.They work like they should. Since they are cut to size they're a very good value.

This shade is exactly what I was looking for but the brackets were kinda big for a small shade .but is fine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Avidshopper Blinds Great - Screws cheap
I love the look of these blinds and I put up all 5 of these fairly quickly by myself. Within 24 hours, the blinds were falling down as the heads of the screws were breaking off. The screws were very cheap and flimsy. We had to try to remove the broken portion of the screws out of the wood and some we were unable to get out. Fortunately, there were other holes in the brackets that we were able to use to place other quality screws. If you purchase, plan on using better screws for installation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wazzubetty If you're replacing your old ones, don't measure the shade itself - measure the window!
We're on our third set of these since 1994 - I love them! They're perfect for our needs. Usually, my husband measures & tells me what to get. This time, I tried to do it myself (insert rolling eye emoji here). I measured the shade itself because I thought I wanted to match them exactly (so I could use the same brackets - you know, make it easy). When they arrived, they were way too narrow. I thought okay, I'll measure the actual rollers on the shades. Wrong again! I took both wrong sets into the store & asked what I was doing wrong. They were so nice & explained that you're supposed to measure the actual window. The people who cut them figure out the rest for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by coveringwindows Simple but does the job
I got two of these for my son's bedroom to go under sheer curtains and another one to go in our playroom where my husband sleeps during the day when he works nights. The idea in both situations was to darken the room to aid in sleeping. Aside from light coming in at the edges (I wouldn't say they blackout the room), the room gets pretty dark with these. In the playroom, if I get curtains to go with it, I think we can get it pretty black!
As far as looks, the tannish ones I got for the bedroom exceeded my expectations, because they didn't look like the typical roller shade, being that color. The plain white one I got for the other room is a little uglier, in my opinion. The tan ones would look great with something covering the top roller part, which is the only part that really looks like a cheap roller shade to me.
