Revere replacement windows


A Neighbor had Revere replacement windows installed. I'm interested in replacing mine and these look good to me. installer said they are equivalent of Harvey, but less $.
Can anyone offer thoughts or experience on Revere? or how to evaluate Vinyl (clad?) replacement windows?
Many TIA for the impressive accumulated wisdom of this group.

Just checking out the 2 different sites, I noted a couple of things.
Revere doesn't claim the vinyl is 100% virgin vinyl (unless I missed this somewhere). You don't want a vinyl windows made from recycled products. Some manufacturers produce vinyl frames from recycled vinyl for obvious reasons. But, recycled vinyl will not endure UV rays like virgin vinyl will.
Also, I noticed on Revere's site, only their top of the line double hung, has true interlock @ the meeting rails.
Revere's site doesn't claim a slim-line product(more glass area)like most manufacturers do.
I would have to pass on their product. The installer should have been able to point out differences in the 2 products, since he mentioned them both.
