    "An above-average program for theming - with problems."

    December 6, 2010  |   By samw40

    Version: WindowBlinds 7.1

    Pros

    -Great visual UI when in the program
    -Easy to apply themes
    -Lot of built-in customization options
    -Wide range of downloadable themes
    -Trial period

    Cons

    -Difficult to install themes
    -Not all options work on all OS versions
    -High price considering the free alternatives

    Summary

    I love theming my Windows XP SP3 machine - I really do. I especially liked the ease of downloading a theme to my desktop, only to find a WindowsBlinds file. Two weeks ago, I finally broke down and purchased Windows Blinds.

    So let's start with the good: It's a powerful program. It can be used by the tech-savvy and those less so. There are many built-in features, and when you add in the thousands of themes available, you have almost unlimited options for you desktop. Almost.

    Unfortunately, WindowsBlinds' features aren't for all systems. On Windows XP, I was unable to activate transparent window frames. Even more, when I went digging through the settings for a similar option, it was greyed out. $19.95 for greyed-out options. *Sad face*

    Another thing I wasn't satisfied with was the proccess of installing themes. Though most installations were successful, there were at least two themes that I couldn't load up. And some of the default Windows themes - that's right, people, made by Microsoft themselves - wouldn't load. It just went to the Windows Classic theme. I later researched this problem, and found out that this seems to happen to cracked versions. THIS got me mad, because I paid twenty bucks for this thing - I didn't download a crack. Maybe a glitch; but still a problem.

    The last thing I want to note is the price. While people seem to buying it up anyways, there are free alternatives. Themes can be downloaded that aren't for WindowsBlinds, and I use TrueTransparency for clear window frames.

    Overall, this is an above-average program for those who strongly want it - but don't forget that there are definitely some pretty good alternatives, too.

    "Not worth the install on this computer"

    October 3, 2010  |   By zoomie666

    Version: WindowBlinds 7.1

    Pros

    I liked the options and themes available as well as the ease of use.

    Cons

    Poor results. I chose one of the plainest options, the monitor showed a hugely magnified window, lost the Start button, and the windows moved in a very choppy way as they were opened or closed. I uninstalled the program, choppiness continues.

    Summary

    I am very disapppointed in the product, since the company has other programs which I quite like.

    "Excellent UI Design and transparency"

    August 19, 2010  |   By G-Pachek

    Version: WindowBlinds 7.1

    Pros

    The way the designers carried out the UI through out the theme

    Cons

    I think it's my computer with only 1 gig of Ram which made all styles run extremely slow to the point that I had to remove them so I could keep working.

    Summary

    It you have the ram and are still running XP, then you will enjoy this product, especially the way the designers carried our their styles through out the operating system.

    "Excellent Software--Endlessly delightful."

    August 10, 2010  |   By jdtoomb

    Version: WindowBlinds 7.1

    Pros

    A seemingly endless supply of skins allows me to change the look of my PC as often as I like. With version 7.1 I can also recolor or re-texture any skin I have.

    Cons

    I haven't found anything that I don't like.
