by momshopsforblinds a perfect choice for a budget
These blinds work nicely in my son's room. He has privacy and a lack of light. I didn't measure that well, so the blinds are a little small but not bad. The room doesn't have to be perfectly blacked out so it works well for us. They arrived so quickly and were easy to hang.

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 4 out of 5 by OperaFan Good room-darkening shade
I was a bit nervous about ordering a shade online, but the directions for how to measure for it were clear (though JCP should make the text of those instructions BLACK, not pale gray--tough on my eyes!). I measured twice and then measured again (to make sure!), and the method worked--when the shade arrived it was cut so that the width of the shade itself (the vinyl fabric) came where I wanted. The shade material is perhaps a bit thin (or I'd have given it a higher rating), but not flimsy like a lot of shades in the DIY stores. The piece of plastic to stiffen the bottom of the shade was in the package separately, and you insert it yourself. The shade was easy to install (brackets/screws/ plastic screw sleeves for installing on wallboard were included--the sleeves aren't needed if you install on the wood window frame). The shade totally darkens the room, which is what I wanted it to do. When I picked up the shade at my local JCP, I found that the window-treatment department did not sell shade-pulls. I had to go the my local DIY store to get the plastic slide-on finger grip to put on the bottom of the shade. I bought the shade on a terrific sale, so I am satisfied with the price/value calculation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JCPshopper I have purchase these blinds for years, not disappointed
We first bought our home 25 years ago, at which time, I replaced all the mini blinds with these cut to size blinds from JCP. Of course, I don't still have the same ones as 25 years ago .... they last a long time, but not 25 years ...., but I have replaced them with the same blinds when needed. They've always been cut to the correct size. They are durable and will last for years. They work well to darken the room, even in the middle of the afternoon ..... you can sleep in the middle of the day if that's necessary for you. The price can't be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by veroniweb Quick, east, effortless
Honestly, the hardest part about the order was trying to figure out what width measurement I needed. They were new going into one room, replacements in another. I wish I had added at least one inch to block more light on the sides, but for the replacements, it turned out to be the exact fit, so no need to move brackets.

Rated 2 out of 5 by icheckemout Look very nice, functionally they are terrible
We bought several custom vinyl roller shades from JCP years ago and we were well pleased with them. They finally wore out, so we ordered 6 more recently.
They look great and the colors are nice, but functionally they are awful. Three out of the six whip up by themselves at any point after being pulled down, often after 1/2 hour or more... while I'm sleeping, waking me up. This has happened twice this week, and more times over the time we've owned them. Not a very pleasant experience.
Very disappointed, I would not recommend them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mama I was skeptical
The price was such a bargain I ordered 6 in two different colors. I was quite pleased with the performance but would have liked if the material was a bit sturdier.

Rated 1 out of 5 by renovating The hardware (screws) break after installation.
We hung 3 blinds and then suddenly the heads of the screws just popped off. We had trouble removing the screws and then went to a hardware store to buy new screws.
