Not sure about that specific model, but over the years, I have not been impressed with most of their products. Basement windows are ok, not OK. I would not install their house windows.

Cheapo lumber yard product. I'd have to agree with Bill that MI has nothing in there lineup that I'm fond of. When comparing, be sure to look at thermal and structural ratings as not only will they tell you how the window will perform, but they are very much indicative of how well the window is designed and constructed.
