Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Redster Super Windows!
I purchased a total of 15 American Craftsman 70 windows - some via homedepot.com and some special order through the local store due to special dimensions. They all came in quickly without any damage or issue. The windows are really easy to install - watch a few videos on the internet on installing replacement windows. Don't be afraid to try yourself. Try one, then your confidence will skyrocket and you will do every window in your house.
The windows are excellent and really look nice. Big improvement over the old single pane windows with cracked glazing and oxidized aluminum storm windows. One added bonus is they have really reduced the noise from outside. They are easy to open and clean. I'm sure they will help cut down the drafts during winter and reduce A/C usage during summer.
One very minor note - watch for flashing at the outside corner vinyl welds. Trim if needed so they don't throw off your fit into the old window frame.

Quick and easy install on some nice replacements. These are not $1000 Marvin windows, but they are the perfect fit for a leaky old farmhouse. I got 2 of them done in an hour. They operate nicely and are a great bargain for the quality.

It was just what we needed to replace an old window in a cottage.

Perfect! This replaced an old double hung window. It was too easy and a very nice product. Cost was comparable to other vendors, the packaging was done very well and "free" shipping!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by norm not what I expected
I recently enclosed an open area into an office. Within 2 days it was obvious better air circulation was needed so I decided to install a new window on the wind side of my house where no window existed. I chose a double hung so I could use a window air conditioner and be able to open it for fresh air if needed. Ordered a retrofit version so I wouldn't have to re-plaster-just make sure it was a precise fit. The window arrived and there is no lip at all around the the window making it impossible to install it without loads of work. Home Depot didn't know anything about my window but a call to the 800 line at least got me the info and part number I needed to install it---part has yet to arrive but I can't for the life of me understand why it wasn't part of the window.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jzbcnu Reasonably priced replacement windows
I needed to replace two windows and would replace two more of the same size if and when I located them. My local stores did not have any in stock. HD about 20 miles away showed 3 in stock. I ordered them on-line. They actually physically had 4 in stock, so I purchased all 4. New windows were very easy to install. Old windows can be removed from either inside or outside of home. I have done it both ways (on a one story house) and prefer outside removal. The 60 year old windows would probably have required 8 hours each to maximize their looks and function. To remove old and install replacement windows took about 2 hours each. New windows look much better, are easy to open and clean, and are probably much more efficient due to double glazing. 2 of 4 windows were missing a sill plate plastic strip, 1 had a hole in the screen and 1 had badly damaged/seriously bent sash lift bar (that still functions). Other than those issues, I'm satisfied with the windows and expect them to maintain their design specifications for 5-7 years, which is the lifetime - in my opinion - of these types of vinyl windows.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeS Great window and easy to install
Well made and easy install makes the windows a great value.They are good looking, and with new wood interior trim and blinds gives the house a new look.
Went on line to see how to replace 65 year old windows in a cinder block ranch house. Saw some youtube examples and made measurements.Went to Home Depot who helped me select the right window. Came home,disassembled the old window, siliconed the remaining frame and slid the new window in place.It fit perfectly with no shimming. It also looked so nice I decided to replace all the interior trim. So back to Home Depot for whitr primed trim. First window took an hour, with trim 3 hours. Everything went so well and looked so good I did all 7 windows. Last one took an hour , with the trim.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dakota1949007 Suprizingly easy and works very well
My first window to do myself with my Son-in-Law who knew how and very easy to install and fit in place, ordered the correct size to leave just enough room to seal all around. The screen came with a small hole that something pierced the shipping box but I called and replacement screen is on the way... Thanks, I will buy more of the same from Home Depot, thanks again. RJD
