D-C-Fix Vinyl Window Film - Stained Glass Effect
on 31 March 2013
I didn't really know what to expect with this product, certainly other happy buyers gave me confidence that it would be fine, but it was the image making this product look really vibrant and realistic that prompted me to give it a try, however, it turned out to be very disappointing. It really fails to create a sense of stained glass and just looks like cheap, fake, plastic film stuck over a window. The wonderful colours and pattern of the image are completely lacking. Once the vinyl is stuck to the window it becomes transparent and watered down from how the image looks, and when the sun shines through the film, it's barely noticeable that anything is covering the window at all. Very cheap looking but I guess you get what you pay for and as this product is so inexpensive, I guess what I was expecting was far in excess of what was possible for such a small outlay. However, I think if it was made with different materials, with a shiny and thick plastic material rather than the filmy plastic it's made from, the effect would be better - but the image is misleading and I would never have purchased the product if it had showed the reality - despite the low cost - I would have saved this small amount and put it towards paying properly for stained glass - however expensive! I think overall, this was a waste of money - but having said that, this was for an area in a house - I think if you wanted it for a caravan or campervan, it would be absolutely fine. The image though, is very misleading.
