First off, these are FILTERING shades not blocking or black-out shades, exactly what I was looking for. They are great for controlling the amount of bright southern California sun, which can damage the furniture that I brought from Paris (France, not Texas or Kentucky) where I lived for the past 20 years. They also provide excellent insulation in the evening and at night, which can be quite cool in San Diego. Plus you certainly can't beat the price and the fast delivery, if the size you're looking forward is available. All in all, an excellent product considering the "quality/price index", as the French would say. As for those who have found the actual ivory color 'darker' than what they saw at this website, may I humbly suggest that it is probably a function of the color setting on your computer screen/monitor rather than misrepresentation at this website. I haven't used a Windows PC for a long time, but on any Mac one can adjust the monitor color setting under Preferences to one's liking. And if I select a setting that's 'native' to my monitor, then the color at this website matches the actual color exactly. Perhaps PC users could also try to choose the correct color setting for their monitor, in order to see the color that was intended to show here? Just my 2 cents...
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Exactly - but do check the color setting on your computer monitor first!
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. very good
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? pretty accurate, but could mention that it is a FILTERING shade to avoid confusion
- Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
