It is decent quality. The sound of moving up/down the shutter is loud though. It could be improved.
I love my cellular shades but there are a few things you should take into consideration. It doesn't come with a valance as listed in the product description. It doesn't come with a USB plug; you will have to supply that yourself. Don't buy the cable extension unless you are willing to attach the motor to anything but the headrail. It isn't a longer USB cable you will be provided with. It is a longer motor power cable which doesn't do any good if you attach the motor to the headrail as designed. With that being said, customer service was responsive and helped resolve the issues to my satisfaction.
We love our Graywind shades. They are attractive and well made. We have the inside mount and they fit perfectly. We use a Broadlink universal adapter which makes hooking them up to Google Home a breeze. The shades were an easy install. The only issue we had was setting the max up and down position. That turned out to be a problem only because the positions were already set. Once we deleted the existing settings we could set our own and it worked like a charm.
Would have liked a longer standard length cord (without having to use an extension).
The first shade arrived and it had a small dent in it, I contacted the seller and they are sending me a new one... I ordered a second shade and it is perfect. They look like Hunter Douglas and their motorized shades are less than a non-motorized Hunter Douglas. I am putting them on all of the bedroom windows in our house that we are living in while we build a new house. As long as they keep working, (and I can see no reason they won't as the construction is solid) I am going to put dozens of them in my new house. They are well made, their support is great. I've got them working with voice commands in my google home using the Broadlink remote bridge - I am having some small issues with the broadlink, but their support people are working on it and I expect to have it working 100% soon. But basically, I think Graywind shades are excellent value for the money. Installation was a breeze, takes me about 10 minutes to install one now. I'm planning on taking the batteries out to charge them, but I've had the first shade for 2 months now and battery is still going strong, by the size of it I bet it will last close to a year with raising and lowering and adjusting the shade a few times per day. So glad I found these.
