Pros:
I work night shift and have to sleep during the day and these shades(with included side channels) block 99% of all light from the sun directly beaming on the window. I could use the extra foam to make it block 100% of the light, but I just don't care enough. I'm totally happy with these as is, my room is cooler and I can sleep in darkness during the middle of the day!

Cons:
I gave the correct window measurements per instructions and the shades came the right size, but I wish the shade was longer(up&down). When I lower the shade all the way it doesn't automatically reach the bottom of the window, I have to manually push it down to the bottom. This is only a minor annoyance, since it still totally works. It would have been better if the shade was longer than the window since it goes up and down anyways.

I will definitely be ordering the next shade I need from Blinds Chalet.

I ordered two sets of the SlumberShade 3/8" blackout double cell shades. I have to say that they're absolutely great! They block out all the light from outside, even on a very sunny day. I had a bit of difficulty installed the shade that was 74" wide, but it wasn't the shade that was the problem - it was my window frame that gave me a bit of grief. The directions, for both the shades and the side panels (which were very easy to install as well - what a great idea, using magnets!), were both nicely illustrated and easy to understand. Thank you again!

I'm a light sleeper, and these do a very good job of blocking light.

I'm a light sleeper, and these do a very good job of blocking light. They don't quite meet what I consider the "gold standard" (a Lutron motorized roller shade with side channels) but they come quite close. There is a very little bit of shadow leakage through the honeycombs, and the bottom seal on the windowsill leaves a hairline crack of light. They're good enough that I do not need to use eyeshades and a fantastic value.

Great so far. Not difficult at all to install, even with mediocre directions. Definitely cuts out all light, and reduces much noise.
