Roll-up screen door

I've seen a screen door that rolls up into a tube at one end of the door. I've found some online for $200-$300, which seems awful high. Anybody know where to buy one at a lower price? Any experiences with specific brands or models?
Thanks, Michael

I've got 3 of them on my new home. Installed by previous owner. Absolutely worthless. My dog ruined one on the patio door within a month of moving in. I contacted the local company for a fix. They waited 4 days to call me back for an appointment that was a week away. I nixed the idea and decided on another method of solving my problem. Anyone that busy is not going to be interested in completive pricing View and opinion is mine, your results may vary

We have one made by Phantom -- cost just under $300 installed. We had purchased a cheaper one at Lowes (about $125) by a different company, but it turned out to not work so well and we ended up replacing it within 3 months. The Phantom has been worth every penny. Mechanically, it is well-made and seems to be less affected by dirty tracks, etc. unlike it's cheaper counterpart (in our experience). My sister has a double-door Phantom screen at her house and as far as I know, it's been working fine for over 8 years.

Check at Lowe's. Can't recall the namebrand and couldn't find it on the door. The screen door we have has an upper part which rolls a screen down as the window is lowered. The door has two closures: one at the top and one at the bottom, supposedly to cause less stress on the door. The door itself seemed to be constructed better than doors by other manufactures -- their's were flimsy in comparison.
