Maybe it was our own fault. We were expecting a true triangle and were planning on attaching it to the patio cover but, due to the angles of the cut it left big gaps between the roof and the fabric therefore not providing as much shade as we had hoped for.

The sun shade is perfect and very nice looking, I especially like all the hardware included which allows me to adjust the shade easily to get the perfect shady patch. Great quality and materials of construction. Can't say much about durability since I have only owned for a couple of months but I hope it last because its a pretty handy and portable sun shade.
This shade looks very nice on my deck. The added bonus is that there is no obstruction, as there is when you have an unbrella, so it gives you more space to move your tables and chairs around. It is of very good quality material, and the hardware was adequate and easy to install. Took me awhile to figure out how to position it, but all in all pretty easy. I already had hooks attached to the eaves over the deck, so I didn't have to use any power tools to make holes. My only complaint is that I purchased the medium shade to go over my 10' x 10' deck, and it really doesn't cover as much as I would like it to. I may buy another if I can figure out how to hang two.

This is my second shade sail from Overstock. The first one lasted almost 10 years before the loops at the corners rotted from sun damage. These are a great value considering the sail sites sell them for triple the price. They are very wrinkled when yoiu first put them up but that smooths out over time. I live in Denver and leave it up year round as a porch cover/shade. It fills with snow and I just push the shade up to dump out the snow. Great product. I bought the black this time. Looks good.
We ordered two triangle and one square shades for our pool area at our Bed and Breakfast. These are great products as I also have one at home which was more costly through another distributor. You can't beat the prices on Overstock and I have always been happy with my purchases.
The product is excellent however, I thought it would be a complete 90 degree triangle and it is 60 so if doesn't work in my space. I guess that more size information regarding the product would have been helpful. I would use Overstock again but hope for more specifics.
I ordered this because other reviews said it was great and easy to assemble. Granted it does come with directions and all the tools, but it was no where near easy. The shape is not a 90 degree triangle. Not sure what shape you call it but getting it to cover a simple corner in the yard is near impossible. Add that to the fact that the part of the yard I want to shade is insanely hot, spent two days with help trying to get the thing up and quit. Not worth it.
We like the style of the shades and they really do the trick of giving of some shade on the deck. It is a really a unique look. We are using 2 medium shades and the sizes work just great! The only downside is the rope it came with. The white nylon rope looks too much like tent rope and not very attractive. We are in the process of finding something less "campy". Even a darker color would be better. That aside, we are enjoying the sails.
A great addition to you outdoor patio lounge area. Provides filtered shade all day. Easy to install.

The color is exactly what I expected. I ordered the gray and got a dark charcoal, but I knew that's what it'd be. They are of good quality. We got a medium and small square and a medium triangle. We've only had them up for a little over a month, but it seems as though it has rained A LOT since then and they're holding up perfectly fine. They block the sun and they're stylish. I like em!
