I purchased this blind to replace an identical one that I had purchased about 7 months ago, when I had installed these blinds throughout my house. I was very happy with the ease of DIY installation, the appearance, and the functionality. In the original installation, one blind had arrived with a broken internal cord--impossible for this DIY-er to repair--and Overstock replaced it immediately (thanks, Overstock Customer Service!). Recently a 2nd cord broke, and this purchase replaced the 2nd broken blind. None of the other blinds have had any problems, and overall I'm very satisfied with the product. Given the high price of custom-ordered honeycomb blinds, I'm still way ahead even with the cost of replacing one from time to time!
