Anyone w/an outside-mount cellular shade?

Replacing a wide (2 sep windows across) inside-mount shade because my new kitchen windows don't have the mounting depth required for another inside-mount (the mounting hardware will show otherwise).

I want a top down/bottom up corded shade, and found something online, but I'm wondering if those with an outside-mount type have any problems with the sturdiness of it or the functionality of the cords?

I know it'll probably be only as good as the handyman I get to install it ...

The mount doesn't have much to do with the cords. The potential issue with Outside mount is that the edges of the shade are not as protected by the frame of the window and can be more easily damaged.
