I got the cordless top down/bottom up which is a great feature. I like that there are magnets at the top of the shade to keep them nice and even when in the closed position. The shades have been up about 2 weeks and are working well so overall I am satisfied
with the product for th eprice. A few small complaints are that the bottom rail looks unfinished and the pull down handle is unattractive compared to other cellular shades I have purchased from Select Blinds. It would be nice if the website showed a photo
of these parts to set expectations. Also, after 2 weeks of use, if the sun is strong and heats up the shades, they emit a burning/chemical smell which I expect will disappear over time.

These blinds genuinely black out the sun - helping us sleep better. They also provide good insulation. We got 8 blinds installed in a short afternoon. We are very satisfied with this product.

These are really good quality blinds. We got the top-down cordless version, it's slightly awkward with the little handle clips included, but works OK. I'm concerned about the lifespan of the mechanism that allows them to move, but so far it all seems very
good. I also wish we'd gotten them slightly longer than the window opening, they need to be well-streched to pull all the way to the bottom, seems like a little more length would make this easier.

These blinds are a replacement for my last purchase (cord operated top-down, bottom-up). The previous set lasted only a couple of months before cords broke. Due to the width (72"), Select Blinds recommended a continuous cord loop design for the blind.
These blinds appear to be sturdier, and for the last month, have held up well. I would not recommend standard cord operated blinds, but continuous loop are doing the trick.
