Yes the black does block a good bit of light. I don't have a problem with that in the day and especially at night. I didn't think that the smoke would look right with my black AC. If you want as much light as possible, you may want to go with the smoke. What color is your AC? That would be a factor for me, I wanted everything to match.

My AC is black also, and I would like them to match as you do. My wife is concerned about the light loss. I think it would be ok as there is another skylight in the living area and the shower skylight lets in lots of light too. I need to talk her into the black, let's see how that goes!

I hope everyone realizes that black absorbs heat and will make your A/C work harder..

I'm getting clear for a lot less money and taking it to an auto tint shop and selecting the shade I like.
