These satin sheets are about what I expected. The color is just like what I viewed online. I've washed them several times and they hold up very well. They are very "cooling" in this 90-100 degree heat wave Denver's had all summer. The only caution I would offer is if you don't have a deep/pillow top mattress, these might be too deep in the corners. I did measure my mattress before I ordered (my matress was 13" deep), and I was within the recommended depth-ness from the online detail review, however, I find I have to tuck extra material under the mattress. This tucking doesn't cause any problem for me while I'm sleeping - but it is something you might want to be aware of.
