I ordered a pair of these, they arrived ahead of schedule and very well packaged. The installation was as simple as mounting three brackets to the top of the window casing, then clipping the head rail into place. The operation is simple and well-balanced - you can raise the shade with one finger. I paid over three times as much for top-down bottom-up cellular shades for another room a few years ago. I'd recommend these to any friends or family members. Note, they filter light but do not block very much light. For my purposes, this was exactly what I wanted - I lower the tops for privacy. A great deal for the money. My dog approves too.
Generally I don't do reviews. But I'll make an exception here. I ordered this shade with some trepidation. I wanted a blackout shade but I just could not figure out how the darned thing could work without any cords. Turns out it has some sort of tensioners inside that allow you to simply pull down the shade manually and raise it up with just a little lift from your hand at the bottom of the shade. I wonder why they don't say this in the description somewhere. Anyway, the shade is one hell of a bargain. It looks great and it really is a blackout shade. I plan to order two more. One thing, you will need a few minutes to figure out which way the brackets installed on the shade. The printed instructions could be a lot clearer on this. But all in all, the shade gets my top rating.
