Can't say right now, but I'm having 20 of them installed within the next 4 - 6 weeks as soon as they come in. From my comparisons and shopping around they seem like a good window. I forget the series/model (maybe 7000 series) I'm getting, but they're double hung, low-e, argon gas, double pained, and double glazed (I believe). The person installing them gave a great price (referral by friend that has used him 2 times along with other friends and family members of theirs). Anyway, from the brochure they are Energy Star rated and also had a very low U rating (like .29)...a couple of the things I was looking for. Yes, price was a factor, but given the info I know about the window they seem like a quality window. My quote was ~$6700. Sounds cheap to me, and the next cheapest bid was closer to 8k, and all the way up to ~14k (Home Depot....stay away). The guy doing the work has very low overhead so I'm sure that played a major role in the price....I'm not sure I'd expect to find anyone that would come in that reasonable (ie cheap).

How did your installation go and how did the windows hold up?
