I have install a couple in my house, (2 years ago) which I bought from Home Depot.
They have worked perfectly for me and I am very happy with them.
The quality control seemed rather poor and, in order to get 2 good windows, I had to reject 2 others that they sent which had defects. However, the exchange process was friendly and I plan to buy more from them soon.
Hope this helps.
Lewis.

What do you mean by "good"? Does that mean cheap? If so, yes, they are cheap.
When I moved into this house 20 years ago it had old, steel frame, casement windows that wouldn't even close all the way. I shot-gunned the place with 13 cheap vinyl replacement windows. The heating expense dropped to 2/3 of what it was the first year. As time and money allow, I'm going around replace those with Andersen windows which are much better looking.
One thing to worry about is how much of your view the vinyl windows cut off because the frame is 4" on all sides. But replacement windows are easy to slide in. Using new windows (all that Andersen makes), means chopping the siding and making new trim.

I upgraded 3 sliding french doors and some windows about a year ago with vinyl windows from Milgard. They look great and are supposed to last a lifetime. We replaced our wood doors and windows with vinyl and I am so glad I did. While wood cracks and requires maintenance, vinyl never really does. Get some quotes from preferred glass shops in your area, in my opinion vinyl is a great way to go.
